Anybody here live around Mytle Beach?

I was wondering what living in or around Myrtle Beach is like. Do you have to be a **** millionaire to retire and live there? I'd like to hear from some of you South Carolina guys. The state has always interested me.

    No I don’t think so.



    Truly depends on the area . “Myrtle beach “ as most think of it is a huge coastline consisting of many different towns and beaches. You can go up towards little river NC and be 40 min from everywhere ( restaurants attractions etc) and probably buy a house 15 min off the coast for not much .



    I live in the upstate so not an expert. But my in-laws has a condo on the golf course at little river. Course called cypress bay. They’ve since closed the course. Well condo cost $54k new in 2002ish Sold it 4 years ago for $127k. So no. You don’t have to be wealthy in my opinion if you’re smart. Now same condo in myrtle beach township maybe worth $350k ? I don’t know.

    I don't live in MB, but I visit often. If you look up cost of living in cities, MB is low.



    There are areas for all price ranges and golf courses in all price ranges.

    You can find what you can afford.



    Obviously a place on the beach will cost more than a place a mile inland.



    Plan a trip and you will see.

    My parents live in Conway, about 20 mins from the airport. They love it down there, my mom put her foot down they were not going to live on a course or next to the ocean. They are in a great subdivision, built a very nice 2300 sq ft 3/2 ranch for $235k in 2009. They are 72 & 69, taxes are very favorable, they pay under $650 a YEAR in property taxes.



    My mom's big complaint is they have to drive 10-12 miles for grocery shopping.



    That being said, they have seen a couple of doozy storms but never had any real damage. My mom really wanted NC but she insisted on gas stove/heat that NC didn't offer in the areas they liked. She recommends it to people to check it out.

    Thanks Crush ! The winters and property taxes here in Illinois are getting old. I have kind of a big house that is almost 6K a year in taxes. That and I would like to be able to play golf more than 7 months out of the year.

    I live in N.E. and my old man was tired of the snow, that is why they moved. His 1st season he played 150rds of golf! His age and his friends age/health have slowed him down but he still plays in the 90-110 per yr #. They have lost a handful of friends who died young so his core group is smaller now then when he moved there.



    Also the local rates make it VERY affordable. He plays at Legends a lot, I think he gets breakfast, lunch and golf for $29 as a local. That's insanely cheap!

    lol. If you’re used to paying $6k a year in taxes you can come down here and feel rich. I’ve got a pal from Long Island who sold a lot and house that measured something like 120ft x 80ft. ( the lot ) For $370k. Built a 2 story 3 car garage for half that and pays 1/3 of the taxes . Word to the wise. Locals are easy to get on with but avoid trying to “ change things “ or tell them how much better things up north were run. That usually Illicits a “ the interstate still runs both ways pal “. Lol.



    Things are slower here stilll. Most work weeks for professionals are Monday afternoon though Friday morning. Lol. But if you embrace it , it’s all good !

    Depends on how you do it-- Like others have mentioned you can join one of the golf group packages and get good rates---- I will warn you if you still work wages are low here some of the lowest in the nation-- Taxes are not that bad--- They will gig you on re registering a out of state vehicle I think it is $350. Now the drawback on the golf is even with a local membership in tourist season the courses favor motel packages etc on tee times etc. But when you look around you can live pretty cheap. As someone else mentioned the Legends have the best deal around if you are retired and play a lot. I am on a deal with the Founders group that has 21 courses. I come out pretty decent on that earning points etc for free golf and group rates etc.



    The drawback besides the low wages is in Myrtle itself. They have higher sales taxes and that place has become the crime capital. I live on the South end 8 miles from Myrtle and it has become crowded in the last 20 years I have been here because of all the BS in Myrtle. Traffic can be bad in the summer seasons because the current roads simply can not handle the mass of traffic. The infrastructure here is 25 years behind the current times. One other positive is gasoline prices in SC are among the lowest in the USA. I would have responded sooner but I just saw your post

    Yep Legends is the best thing going if one is retired and plays every day (weather permitting). If I was retired I would join the Legends group

    What would membership fees be for doing something like the Legends group?

    I am not really sure on the rate part on the Legends group membership. I do think local prices are $29 for 18 and a cart with lunch thrown in. Another thing you will learn if you move here. After a while you will stick to basically the end of the beach you live on. I basically stick to the South end---- Which ever end you move to there are plenty of restaurants and malls etc close by and of course golf courses
