There are many options here in Myrtle Beach. Are you looking to be near the beach? Or perhaps you like a more private area? Think about the lifestyle that you would like and the options you will need.
Once you get the criteria in place, I can assist you. If you will email me your Name, phone number and email address, I will add you to our search engine. This will allow you to search all the active condo/townhouses in the area. I think this will give you a little idea of what is available and pricing.
Some condo associations will not allow long-term rental, so we would need to narrow down the developments that do. I can help you think these things through.

My name is Fulton Bone i am an agent with Weichert Realtors Southern Coast.
There are many options for you to choose from in the Myrtle Beach area. First and foremost deciding what area of the beach you would like to be located. Other things to consider is the HOA fees.
HOA fees and past rental income need to be consider and what the property has to offer.
I truly would like to help you and ask what you wants and needs are so that I can do a search of current properties that you may consider.
Please give me a call 843-251-8410

My name is Julie Blethen and I am a real estate agent with Wilkinson & Associates/ERA here in Myrtle Beach.
This is THE place to purchase a great investment property. There is a great inventory of condos that are at all time low prices! I know the area well and I like to email my clients condos to look at online from different areas of the Grand Strand which is what they call this area here that covers 60 miles of coastline!
I know the condo & investment market well and am actively helping my clients buy and sell condos. I can also refer you to several rental management companies that you can explore at your leisure online. You have many choices: oceanfront condos, condos within walking distance of the beach, golf course condos. I can show you condos in the most desirable areas and the ones that will rent and for the highest dollar!
I work with many out of state clients and if there is a condo that you are interested in, I will preview it for you, take photos & create a video and email it to you. We can do all paperwork through email and I will make it as simple as possible! I have had out of state clients buy condos through me from beginning to end including closing without having to be present and their condo is waiting for them when they come to the beach!
Please check out my website at to do your own property search. You can also call me at 843-564-8539 or email me at Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you! Julie

Hi there, My name is Kathy Ferraro and I am an agent with Latitude34 Realty. I would like very much to help you find your slice of paradise. Many people have bought a condo with the intentions of retiring here. They have rented it out to help offset the costs and when the time is right they move here, sometimes living in the condo and sometimes they decide they would like a home. Either way, when you have the right agent by your side, this can be a very fun and exciting experience. You may contact me and I will be happy to help you and talk with you about owning and renting out your condo.

If you would like a unit that can be rented when you are not using it in order to help cover the expenses, this can be accomplished. Seand me an email at and let me know what your price range is and the type of unit you would like. I will cross reference this through the MLS and pull any units that are available that might work for you. From there you can let me know which you might be interested in and I will be glad to do a cash flow analysis on those units to give you an idea of what your out of pocket cost to own that unit would be in a year, or what your expected return on your invest might potentially be.

Depending on the amount of personal use, it is possible to purchase units that will in fact put money in the bank for you over the course of the year.

I look forward to talking with you,

Thank you,

I agree with Michael. A condominium is your best option to get the biggest bang for the buck. Myself and company, Oceanfront Guru Real Estate Sales and Development, we specialize in the condominium industry.

You are in luck because Myrtle Beach is currently in a Buyer's market meaning we are in a "buy low now, sell high later" phase.

In regards to where to start off, you need to find out what your buying power is (cash or finance), price range (current cheapest ocean view is $24,900 with $250 HOA/ current most expensive ocean front is 2.4 million)

If you want some more help, feel free to call, text, or email.

What a great idea, and this is a good place for you! the winter, spring, and fall temperatures are very similar to Mesa (We have property there)! summer doesn't get nearly as hot but the humidity is higher.
If you want to use the place and also rent it out you will most likely need to get a condo near the oceanfront that is zoned for short-term rental.
Call me at 843.421.5101 and I can help you find that starting point.
