New Developments in Myrtle Beach Real Estate!

Myrtle Beach is one of the fastest growing communities in the United States, and is one of the major destinations for new construction catering to retirees. It was a major vacation destination during the ’80s and ’90s, and holds a lot of memories for the people who are retiring now – memories of romantic nights on the beaches when they were younger, playing with the kids in the water parks, and more.

As the population has aged, Myrtle Beach has adjusted to match – it’s one of the premier golfing destinations in the country, with tier one and tier two golf courses, some exclusive and some public. There are plenty of activities to entertain, from festivals to a top flight orchestra, to, well, the strand that made the place famous in the first place.

If you’re looking to buy into Myrtle Beach, either as a vacation home, moving here to enjoy the lovely weather and raise a family, or to buy a condo for retirement, there’s a lot the city has to offer. New developments, to the tune of several million square feet of living space are opening up all the time, and existing home sales – bucking the trend across the country – remain brisk.

If you want a custom home, there are developments for all price ranges, from Centre Point to more upscale developments on the northern side of town, some with integrated shopping and activity centers.

If you’re looking for a sleepy, quiet neighborhood to raise your children, Myrtle Beach can cover that as well – one benefit of the growing real estate market is a good tax base to fund the local school district, and the Myrtle Beach chamber of commerce knows full well that building a dynamic community requires getting young professionals into the housing market and putting down roots. They’ve seen what happened to Augusta and Dade County, and are taking proactive measures to keep Myrtle Beach dynamic and appealing for every age demographic.
