Myrtle Beach continues to grow!

Real Estate Agent with Price & Company Realty

Census Bureau data released last week show that Myrtle Beach continues to outpace most metropolitan areas in growth - despite the gloom and doom perpetuated by our friends in the national media.

The fastest-growing areas in the United States are in the Sunbelt. Experts credit much of the growth in the South to strong local economies and housing prices that are the most affordable in the United States.

The ten fastest-growing metro areas in the country are:

1. Palm Coast, Fla.: 7.2 percent
2. St. George, Utah: 5.1 percent
3. Raleigh-Cary, N.C.: 4.7 percent
4. Gainesville, Ga.: 4.5 percent
5. Austin-Round Rock, Texas: 4.3 percent
6. Myrtle Beach-Conway-North Myrtle Beach, S.C.: 4.2 percent
7. Charlotte-Gastonia-Concord, N.C.-S.C.: 4.2 percent
8. New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner, La.: 4 percent
9. Grand Junction, Colo.: 3.7 percent
10. Clarksville, Tenn.-Ky.: 3.7 percent

"Out of the Blue" solutions for perfect homes

I have a friend in Myrtle Beach, She is with KW. She is probably a well known agent.

Can you guess who?

We met in a KW conference. Anyway, I am glad things are good there for all.
