Myrtle Beach is the Fastest Growing Metropolitan Area in South Carolina…Again!

There are so many reasons why people fall in love with Myrtle Beach. The weather is amazing, the people are genuine and friendly, and natural beauty abounds. It usually takes just one visit and a person is hooked for life.

It comes as no surprise then that the Myrtle Beach/Conway/North Myrtle Beach metropolitan area, for the third year in a row, has been named the fastest growing metropolitan area in South Carolina.

According to the US Census Bureau, the Myrtle Beach area grew 3.8% last year. More than 1,400 people per month are moving to the area. Over the last eight years, more than 104,000 people have moved to the Grand Strand. The Myrtle Beach/Conway/North Myrtle Beach metropolitan area was also named the second fastest growing metropolitan area in the United States.

“The [Myrtle Beach/Conway/North Myrtle Beach] area is growing because we are one of the best investments for Second Homeowner and Vacation Rental Property in America,” said Rick Elliott, President of Elliott Realty. “Values are excellent and return on investment make this area a dream come true for those looking to have a place at the beach.”

In addition to amazing property values and lower taxes, many people are drawn to the Grand Strand because of the balmy year-round climate, award winning entertainment options and 60-miles of breathtaking beach.

“The amenities we have in the Myrtle Beach area are similar to larger cities, but we still hold a small-town atmosphere,” said Ron Jackson, CEO and Broker-in-Charge at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living. “Myrtle Beach and the entire Grand Strand is a great place to live, work, and play because of our exceptional home values.”
