Summary

One thing we can definitely tell is that the cost of renting on the Grand Strand is much higher than the what you can assume an average monthly mortgage would be in the area. With home prices in Myrtle Beach lower than the national average, and rents remaining higher, its certainly a better decision to buy instead of rent in Myrtle Beach. If relocating to the Grand Strand in 2019 is on your agenda, you can rest assured that whatever you buy this year is likely to increase in value over the next year.
