North Myrtle Beach Real Estate is Alive
When most people think of the Grand Strand, they think of Myrtle Beach. Many visitors don't even know the difference between Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, even when they are in the area. Most of the reports, reviews and news about real estate along the Grand Strand are about Myrtle Beach because they know that this will grab your attention. Even Myrtle Beach Realtors refer to the entire beach area as Myrtle Beach.
The fact is, North Myrtle Beach Real Estate is thriving. The supply of homes and condos in North Myrtle Beach is decreasing, the number of foreclosures has declined and the buyer activity is picking up. Our office phones are constantly ringing with buyers asking about condos for sale in North Myrtle Beach. For the first time in years, we are getting more requests for North Myrtle Beach only. There are buyers that refuse to go to Myrtle Beach because they want to be on the northern portion of Horry County.
