Buying a Myrtle Beach condo comes with some great benefits, such as lower required outdoor maintenance and often resort-style amenities. But what type of condo is right for you and your needs? Are ocean views top on your list, are you an avid golfer, or do you prefer a family-focused community? We review the options and explore what each one has to offer.
Oceanfront condos in Myrtle Beach and the surrounding Grand Strand are some of the most affordable options for ocean view real estate on the east coast. Condos along the Atlantic are popular with professionals who are drawn to the long list of amenities and with investors who intend to use their condo purchase as a vacation rental. Aside from stunning views of the ocean, these condo units provide access to some of the most luxurious amenities in town, including on-site spa services, private beach cabanas, indoor and outdoor pools, lazy rivers, hot tubs, state-of-the-art exercise facilities, on-site restaurants, bars and entertainment. Oceanfront condos are available at many different price points along the Grand Strand. Luxury-seeking buyers will want to check out Anderson Ocean Club and Dunes Village Resort, to start with.
Golf Course Condos
Condos on the golf course are a-plenty in Myrtle Beach, with more than 100 golf courses nestled along the Grand Strand. Golf enthusiasts are drawn to golf course condos, but so are retirees, and professionals who like the low-maintenance lifestyle but prefer to be away from the hustle and bustle of the beach. Many golf course condos serve as second homes or part-year residences, though there are some vacation rentals mixed in. Many golf course condominium complexes are gated and provide golf course views or lake/pond views, indoor and outdoor pools, top-notch exercise facilities, clubhouses with on-site restaurants, and even pro shops stocked with any golf gear you might need to tee-off on time. Golf course condos are available at a wide range of price points throughout the Grand Strand. Start your search by checking out Myrtlewood Villas and World Tour Grande Villas.
Family Neighborhood Condos
Condos are a great choice for families and offer a great set of amenities that family members of all ages will enjoy. Condos in family-focused neighborhoods are often sought after by young families who intend their condo to be a permanent residence. Although one may be found here and there, condos in family neighborhoods are not often used as vacation rentals. Amenities for family neighborhood condos often include playgrounds, walking and hiking trails, community pools – including kiddie pools, fitness centers, and many have screened porches. Wooded and lake views are common in family-focused neighborhoods and like the other types on our list, there are price points to fit any buyer’s budget. A few to check out are Heatherstone in Berkshire Forest and Lakeview Condos at The Market Common, to get you started on your search.
Owning a condo is a great option for those who prefer a low-maintenance lifestyle and enjoy access to a variety of amenities. The key to determining which type of Myrtle Beach condo is right for you – oceanfront, golf course or family neighborhood – is what environment and community features you’re looking for. Our breakdown of the top condo types in the Grand Strand should help you start to narrow down the options that best meet your needs.
