When time comes to retire and we think about moving to the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area or anywhere else the life style we plan to have plays a large part in the purchase of a place where you will call home. A condo or townhouse usually is at the top of the list for those who do not want lawn maintenance,
while a single family home draws those who want a yard and the freedom to plant flowers and not have others a wall away.
Becoming a permanent resident in a condo takes some thought, especially if you are used to a single family home. In the Myrtle Beach area we have a lot of vacationers or those who only use their condo for vacations and they tend to be a bit noisey. So if a condo is what you want look for a top floor unit in a building only two stories high or if higher, with an elevator. Keep in mind that condo units on third and up floors with no elevator have less resale value and will be harder to sell if you decide to do so.
Single family home communities that provide or include lawn maintenance are rare but don't worry because if you don't want to mow, pull weeds, or mulch there are numerous companies or individuals at reasonable prices who will take care of your landscape. Since lots are small in most communities around Myrtle Beach there may not be much space between homes and not a lot privacy. For those who do not want a home behind them, look for a pond or woods behind the house. Make sure the woods are not a buildable lot. A golf course behind a house may also be an answer but make sure the golf cart path is not too close and find out if the golf course can ever be sold for other purposes, like being sold to a developer for a new residential or commercial site.
In most communities throughout The Grand Strand the majority of residents are "baby boomers" so focusing on a 55 plus neighborhood is not necessary. Also some of the larger communities, like Tidewater Plantation in North Myrtle Beach, have community activities, trips, etc..
