Real Estate in Myrtle Beach

Uniquely Inspired by the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway

Myrtle Beach Real Estate Myrtle Beach real estate is unique amongst real estate in other coastal resort areas because it's inspired by both the ocean and the waterway that traverses it.

The Atlantic Ocean is the jewel of the landscape, offering breath-taking views of the daily sunrise, setting the tone for each day that refreshes both body and soul.

Likewise, the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, which winds along the entire eastern coast of the United States from Maine to Florida, traverses through the entire Grand Strand from its northern to southern ends.

The Myrtle Beach area is located in an ideal climate

The area's weather is also exceptional: on average, there are only 29 rainy days a year, while there are 240 days of sunshine. The average rainfall is 50 inches; average air temperature, 74 degrees; and average ocean temperature, 69 degrees.

Between the almost-perfect climate, the pristine seashore, waterway views with boat slips, enchanting landscape, and all that the Myrtle Beach area has to offer, it's an easy place to fall in love with and choose to live. And, given today's low interest rates, oceanfront or oceanview living doesn't have to be just a romantic dream anymore. It could easily make its way from your imagination to part of your daily life.

A number of the residential communities around Myrtle Beach take their name from the sea, which is not surprising, considering that the Atlantic Ocean has been the catalyst for the area's appeal, leading to tremendous growth and development.

One such ocean-inspired community is SeaScape at Holden Plantation, a development offering the best in Southern charm, with home designs based upon the stately residences of historic Charleston, New Orleans, and the Low Country of the South. Yet, each neighborhood within SeaScape is designed to have its own distinct flavor based upon the surrounding environment. Homesites are priced to sell starting at $60,000.

Another sea-inspired housing option is Sea Trail, which offers private beach parking for its property owners. The development features the Sea Trail Medical Complex right on the property, so you wouldn't need to look far to find a doctor. Brunswick Community Hospital is also located nearby.

Sea Trail is also home to the Village Shopping Center, featuring, among other amenities, a Food Lion grocery store, a CVS pharmacy, banking, and restaurants.

Sea Trail is located just across the North Carolina - South Carolina state line in Sunset Bch, a town of 1,900 residents, with a property tax of $687.50 per $100,000. Sunset and nearby Calabash are known for more than 40 fine restaurants.

And, according to Duke University, Sunset ranks as the top seashore in North Carolina. Local schools in the area include Union Elementary, Shallotte Middle School, West Brunswick County High School, and Brunswick Community College.
