Real Estate in Socastee & Surfside Beach: A Growing Appeal
As real estate agents along the Grand Strand, we have seen a growing interest in the Socastee and Surfside Beach areas just next to Myrtle Beach.
Real Estate in Socastee
The historic charm of the Socastee area is great for homebuyers who like to be close enough to shopping and the beach to get there quickly, but prefer a quieter neighborhood to call home. The Socastee area was part of an original land grant to Percival Pawley in 1711 and home to many buildings and structures on the National Register of Historic Places. The historic swing bridge, the Cooper House, the pecan grove and other historic spots make Socastee a fun place to live and explore. Bordering both the Intracoastal Waterway and the Waccamaw River, this area has much to offer buyers looking for waterfront homes, townhomes, condos and lots–at lower cost than other areas of the Grand Strand. If you like lots of waterfront options but don’t want to pay waterfront prices, Socastee just might have the home you’re looking for.
Real Estate in Surfside Beach
A neighbor of Socastee, Surfside Beach is known as the Family Beach. Home of the famous Ocean Lakes Campground, Surfside Beach is popular with visitors as well. Beachside condos are in demand with both year-round residents and as vacation rentals (hint for buyers interested in investment properties). Along the beach, stilt houses look out to the ocean and the remnants of the Surfside Pier. Having previously been destroyed and rebuilt on at least three separate occasions, the Surfside Pier was once again destroyed in October 2016 by Hurricane Matthew, with more than 50% of the pier lost to the punishing storm. Also in Surfside Beach, golf and tennis lovers will be thrilled by the offerings in the Prestwick community. Many homes overlook the golf course, a favorite of local golfers–as is the Prestwick Country Club with dining and entertainment. Surfside Beach has a little something for everyone just a skip away from the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach and The Market Common.
