Real Estate

Some of us grew up here and some of us relocated here. Either way, sometimes we take for granted all of the amazing things this beach town has to offer. Sure, we have amazing beaches and fun activities for all ages, but what about all the other things that make relocating so important?  Well, turns out Myrtle Beach has those things too! Here are the top 10 reasons to relocate to the town our agents and staff call home!
Southern Hospitality.
 Some may call it a myth, but if you were born and raised in Myrtle Beach, you know it is as real as the summer heat. Nearly 15 million visitors come from all over every year to visit this town, but why? We like to think it involves a lot more than just the beaches and activities. The locals in Myrtle Beach are warm and welcoming. The people are what really starts a great experience for someone relocating. When you find a new friend in a new place, it comforts you.  That’s why our Southern hospitality is so important and makes our state so well-loved.
The Weather
 You will spend less time shoveling snow and more time with sand between your toes. Myrtle Beach has a mild climate with an average annual temperature of 74°F! It makes for comfortable weather year-round. Our area also boasts around 215 days of sunlight each year. You can’t find that in many other places!
Community is Everything
 Our area has a multitude of ways to get involved. You can get involved with the March of Dimes, Children’s Miracle Network, church mission groups and so much more! With hundreds of religious groups, arts groups, animal shelters, professional associations, medical facilities, and community service groups, there is always a need for volunteers. Myrtle Beach provides great opportunities to give support and assist in this place we all call home. What better way to spend time than by giving back?
Our Home Prices Won’t Break the Bank
 Whether you are moving for a new job or just buying a vacation home, our real estate market has affordable prices and includes an array of amenities. Recent research shows that Myrtle Beach has an increasing number of properties sold with increasing prices. An investor’s dream! Some of the best agents and brokers on the beach include the RE/MAX Southern Shores team. Any one of our amazing agents would love to help you find your next great home.
Health Care
 Our retirement population is also growing. A significant number already enjoy Myrtle Beach life, but what about those looking to relocate? Look no further. Myrtle Beach offers top-notch health care with multiple award-winning facilities. Our doctors and medical officials use some of the best technology and treatments to help you get the care and help you need.
Employment Opportunities – Because Everything Costs Money
 Myrtle Beach is one of the biggest tourist destinations in the United States. With that booming tourist industry comes nearly 75,000 jobs in the area. This is a great industry to look into when relocating. Our jobs also offer various types of employment from hourly-wage, managerial, and supervisory. However, there are not only opportunities in the tourism industry. As mentioned, we have top-notch medical facilities that are always in need of assistance, a growing food scene and fashion scene.
We Are Smarter Than A Fifth Grader
 Myrtle Beach hosts an array of exceptional public, parochial, private and charter schools. We have a technical college, two universities (one with a 2016 National Baseball Championship), and several trade schools. Horry County Schools maintain their competitive edge with a resume that shows several national and state awards and accolades. Any type of schooling or career you want to excel in, Myrtle Beach has it.
Low Taxes + Low Cost of Living = More Fun!
 There’s no need for us to throw our sweet tea into the ocean here. Our low taxes means more money in your pockets. South Carolina does not tax Social Security benefits as well as providing a generous retirement income deduction. On top of that, the cost of living in Myrtle Beach is about 7% lower than the rest of the nation AS A WHOLE! That leaves more room to enjoy local attractions such as Ripley’s Aquarium, mini golf, Family Kingdom Amusement Park, and so much more!
Vacation: It’s a Lifestyle
 Myrtle Beach lives in permanent vacation mode. So whether you’re actually on vacation or you’re getting off from work, you can live the vacation lifestyle. We like to make every day count here. That is especially easy here because we offer thousands of restaurants in various cuisines, attractions, and entertainment options. There are so many ways to wind down and relax and even more reasons to get out there and explore.
And Yeah, We Have Beaches…60 Miles to be Exact.
Arguably, one of the best reasons to relocate is the beaches. It is our main tourist attraction, and the locals love it too. We have 60 miles of uninterrupted shoreline along the Atlantic Ocean. You definitely aren’t hearing any complaints from us! Along with the beach, Myrtle Beach has multiple river and marsh access points. All of this water means there are a variety of watersports, fishing, boating, and more.
