Where else can anyone boast that “life on the east coast” is fun than in the Grand Strand, Myrtle Beach’s amazing coastline that stretches at least 60 miles? Having such vast views of the coast and the seas beyond is cool, but if you’re on the market for nice houses for sale in Myrtle Beach, SC, there are some pointers to heed first:
Start research on the city’s various beachside communities to get a handle on your prospect property. If you are the type who enjoys seafood and watersports, Garden Beach and Murrells Inlet are hotspots to look for properties. However, if you prefer being closer to amenities and establishments, check for places in the city center or Aynor.
Mapping the Budget
Some potential properties may appear in the above communities and others, but be accurate about where your budget will take you. Hurricane and homeowners insurance, plus maintenance services, are to be factored in as well.
Set up a budget and research what it can buy you. Depending on the rental market, you might be able to lease your vacation house as much as 75 percent of the time, but don't count on fully covering your mortgage and upkeep costs with rental.
It’s always important to be prudent, whether you’re in the market for your primary residence or your vacation home. A reliable real estate agent will help you out.
