The North is Worth a Look

Known for its gorgeous beaches and quaint cottages, North Myrtle Beach was founded in 1968 and offers its own unique way of living.  While the area does attract tourists, there are also many tucked-away areas for residents to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.  Myrtle Beach may be the area's main attraction, but the northern area has its own charm.  There is always something going on here, from arts and crafts festivals to live concerts and dance clubs, you are sure to enjoy the local social scene.  For a quieter experience, spend the afternoon shopping the boutiques and then go out for a delicious dinner at any of the delicious restaurants.  North Myrtle Beach has every type of cuisine imaginable including burgers and fries to French dining.  If you are looking for a restaurant with some local flavor, check out Duffy Street Seafood Shack.  A family owned and operated business, Duffy claims to have the best seafood, steak, ribs, and chicken in Myrtle Beach.  So, grab the kids and go see if they win your vote.

Golf lovers will be in paradise in North Myrtle Beach!  There are currently over 100 fairways in the area, many of them designed by some of the superstars of the sport.  Golfers from all over the world come to the area to try their skill on these courses, and there are even championship events in the area. But golf is not the only way to pass the time.  The ocean also brings thousands of people to the area for fishing, boating, and even casino and riverboat cruises.  Living in North Myrtle Beach would give you convenient access to all of these amenities and more.

It is that time of year when the spooks come out to play and the ghouls and goblins are hiding around every corner; when the moon plays with the shadows, and the witches concoct their brews...

Top 10 Reasons to Retire in Myrtle Beach

by Jerry Pinkas

You have finally reached the golden years, when your work has ended and it is time to enjoy the fruit of your labors. Are you considering retiring at the beach, but have yet to pick your spot?  Let us introduce you today to the idea of retiring in Myrtle Beach.  Part of The Grand Strand, this section of the coast is known as a popular vacation destination for tourists of all ages.  There are golf courses, restaurants, and entertainment venues galore.  Plus, there are a few tucked away areas that hearken back to the good old days of the simple fishing village.  Take a look at our blog today and find your reason to call Myrtle Beach your new home.


1. Lower Cost of Living

For starters, the home prices in the area won't drive you into the poor house.  Myrtle Beach has a variety of homes available for under $100,000.  You can even find homes in golf course communities for that price!  That is simply unheard of in most other oceanfront communities.  Not only can you find a home for an affordable price, but South Carolina doesn't tax Social Security benefits.  It also provides a generous retirement-income deduction when calculating income sales tax.  Additionally, senior citizens qualify for a homestead exemption.  All things considered, Myrtle Beach makes it easy for retirees to make a comfortable home on the coast.

 

2. Excellent Healthcare

The Myrtle Beach area is home of numerous award-winning medical centers where you can find some of the best treatments and technology available.  The Grand Strand Medical Center offers services for all ages, including a senior health center with specialists who are well-studied and practiced in geriatric care.  Plus, Grand Strand Medical Center is an accredited chest pain center and has been ranked number 1 for cardiac surgery in South Carolina the past two years.  There are numerous satellite offices as well, along with other major medical centers in nearby Murrells Inlet and Georgetown. 

 

3. Age-Restricted communities

Are you looking for a quiet environment where your neighbors share your interests and are around your age?  There are several retirement communities in the Myrtle Beach area that host those who are 55+.  These communities offer a host of amenities including clubhouses, indoor and outdoor pools, ballrooms, libraries, and so much more.  One of the most popular communities is Seasons at Prince Creek in Murrells Inlet.  In this little tucked-away town, you have convenient access to golf, the Atlantic, and a host of other activities while still having the peace and quiet a small town can offer.  There are two new communities being developed as well, including the Cresswind at Market Common and Carillon at Tuscany in Myrtle Beach.  If you are interested in learning more about the retirement communities in the area, feel free to give us a call with your questions or to arrange a tour.

 

 4. Temperate Climate

We simply cannot brag enough about the gorgeous weather here in The Grand Strand.  Winters are mild, with temperatures rarely dipping below the 40's.  Plus, your days of scooping snow are long gone, so leave your shovel behind.  In the summer, we turn up the heat, but the cool ocean breezes keep you cool as a cucumber.  Spend your soaking up some sun on the beach, or enjoying a round of golf on any of over 100 courses.  Whatever you enjoy, the Myrtle Beach weather can accommodate you year round. 

 

 5. Golf

With over 100 golf courses in the area, Myrtle Beach is most certainly a golfer's paradise.  Some of these courses have been designed by the best in the business including Arnold Palmer. There is truly a course for every skill level and every budget in Myrtle Beach, so everyone can enjoy a round of golf.  With their beautiful landscaping and lush greens, the Myrtle Beach courses are a vacation from the hustle and bustle of every day life.  So, pack up your clubs and come on over to the coast!

 

6. Cultural Scene

Myrtle Beach is a hot spot for live family entertainment.  With seven featured theatres, there is always music for you to enjoy including The Carolina Opry, The Palace Theatre, and Barefoot Landing. Outside of live entertainment, there are plenty of things to do including joining an arts organization, a community service group, or even volunteering at a medical facility.  No matter what you enjoy, Myrtle Beach can keep you busy.  All you need to do is take a look around and activity is sure to find you.


 7.  Beaches

Have we mentioned, yet, that Myrtle Beach has almost 60 miles of beaches with glittering sands and cool ocean waves for you to enjoy?  Allow us to share with you the benefits of living at the beach.  Basically, beach living provides you with sun, fun, and relaxation.  For the sun worshippers, Myrtle Beach averages around 215 sunny days a year.  While some of those days are in the winter months, most of them occur in the summer, so you can soak up some rays on the beach.  As far as fun, Myrtle Beach is full of it and offers a wide variety of activities as we have demonstrated above.  The beach itself can be a source of fun for shell hunters, sand castle builders, and anyone who enjoys partaking in water activities.  Every member of the family is bound to find an activity that will while away an afternoon.  Finally, the beaches are the perfect spot to relax, whether reading a book or enjoying the sunset.   

 

8. Affordable Housing

Though the real estate market has had a bad reputation in recent years, the Myrtle Beach market is gaining strength.  According to Trulia,  the median sales price of three bedroom homes in Myrtle Beach falls around $140,000, which is a very affordable range for most budgets. And, with a homestead exemption for senior residents, taxes are a breeze!  From cozy bungalows to luxury condos, there is a home for every budget and every taste.  Feel free to browse our site to find the perfect one for you!


 9. Variety of Communities

If variety is the spice of life, then Myrtle Beach has quite a shelf full.  For example, Carolina Forest is the largest and one of the most popular housing developments in the area.  Comprised of everything from condos to million-dollar properties, Carolina Forest is a community within itself. While not all of the area neighborhoods offer such variety, each one has its own aesthetic and amenities that create a unique atmosphere.  Are you looking for a specific type of community?  Call our knowledgeable agents and let them help you narrow down your search. 


10. Southern Hospitality

The crowning glory of Myrtle Beach is the Southern gentility and hospitality that you will find here on the coast. All you have to do is ask around to find out that people here are just "so darn friendly."  We just want to confirm:  It's true.  Whether you are stopping at a local restaurant for a meal, or just asking for directions at the corner gas station, you will find that the residents in Myrtle Beach and the surrounding areas are happy to help and are eager to start a conversation.  If you can appreciate a little friendliness, then you will fit in just fine.

Get the Most in Coastal Heights

by Jerry Pinkas

We are excited today to bring you the newest real estate listings for sale in the Coastal Heights neighborhood of Conway,  SC. Located in Horry County along the Waccamaw River, Conway is the county seat and is part of the Myrtle Beach area.  Many of the buildings in Conway are on the National Register of Historic Places because it is one of the oldest cities in South Carolina.  Included among these historic places is the City Hall building, which was reputedly designed by Robert Mills.  Conway also played a part in the American Revolution, and small battles were fought near Kingston at Black Lake and Bear Bluff.  In fact,  the famous Francis Marion, or "Swamp Fox,"  had a camp near Kingston just acroww the Waccamaw River.  The name of the city was originally "Conwayborough" for General Robert Conway, but was changed in 1883 to Conway. 

Conway may be a small town of just over 11,000 residents, but there are plenty of things to do to keep your family entertained year round.  For the golfer, Witch Links has been rated as one of the top activities in Conway.  Reviewers on TripAdvisor.com found the course to be challenging with the occasional interesting obstacle in the form of the local wildlife, an alligator!  Well-manicured greens and a friendly staff make an afternoon of golf at Witch Links a memorable and enjoyable experience.  In addition to golf, Conway offers other entertainment, including live theatre at Main Street Theatre.  There, you can see such classics as M. Butterfly for a bargain price compared to the big-city theatres.  Are you interested in historic sites? Take a tour of the L.W. Paul Living History Farm and get a glimpse of farm life in the early 1900s.  The family also sells a variety of wares, including handmade jams and jellies.  For a more modern experience, the downtown area has been revitalized and is dotted with bistros and boutiques for you to peruse.  The crowning glory of downtown is the Riverwalk, an area of fine dining that stretches along the Waccamaw River.

by Jerry Pinkas

Welcome to Riverwalk!

Are you searching for your perfect condo in Myrtle Beach?  Whether you are seeking an investment/vacation condo or a permanent residence, Riverwalk has what you need. This waterway community is located within the Forestbrook section of Myrtle Beach and offers water views and a convenient location, along with some incredible amenities. Though there are numerous condo communities in the area, we think Riverwalk is one of the best.  You will love the ease of condo living. Imagine yourself owning a home with a water view, pool, fitness center, and zero maintenance responsibilities.  And, with no lawn to care for and a maintenance-free exterior, you are free to enjoy all of the beauty and fun Myrtle Beach provides.  In a city with such a large tourism industry, owning a condo can also be a profitable investment. Take a moment and allow us to introduce you to the carefree living of life in Riverwalk.

 

 

About Riverwalk

Located in the Forestbrook section of Myrtle Beach and part of the Villages at Arrowhead, Riverwalk is in an ideal location and comes with some fantastic amenities, not to mention the view. First, Riverwalk is just minutes away from the excitement of Myrtle Beach.  There, you will find activities to keep your whole family occupied including shopping, live music, fine dining and more.  The community is also close to the Arrowhead Golf Course as well as the Coastal Grand Mall. But Riverwalk offers more than just a convenient location.  You will appreciate all of the amenities on the property as well.  Enjoy an afternoon by the pool while working on your tan or, take a dip in the indoor pool if you aren't a sun worshipper.  If water isn't your style, there are numerous outdoor patios and porches where you could picnic with your family or simply read a book and appreciate the quiet.  For those who like to keep active, Riverwalk has a private fitness center with attractive prices so you can work out on vacation after indulging in the delicious Myrtle Beach restaurants. Boating enthusiasts will love Riverwalk as well.  The Atlantic Ocean can be easily accessed by the inlet and residents can take advantage of the community's public docks where you can relax and fish, or step on a boat and take a sunset tour.  Adventure is just around the corner at Riverwalk!

Condos in Riverwalk range in size from 700 to 1,700 square feet and have 1 to 3 bedrooms. Plus, prices on these properties range from around $80,000 up to $200,000 depending on size and location. With high ceilings, large master bedrooms, and lots of light, there is plenty of space for your whole family. Some of the condos also offer private garages, perfect for those who decide to make this area a permanent home. Riverwalk is also close to schools from elementary to high school, and the airport is just a hop, skip, and a jump down the road.

 

 

With its convenient location, unbeatable amenities, and lots of space for your family, Riverwalk is clearly a great neighborhood to call home.
