Have you reached a certain age, a milestone in life or have the kids left the nest? Whatever your circumstances are maybe downsizing may seem a logical next step. However, there are lots of things to consider before making the big move to Myrtle Beach or wherever your path may lead.
First, what does downsizing mean to you? It doesn't always mean moving to a smaller home.
Before you make a final decision I recommend making a trip to the area you like and "scope" it out. Talk to the locals about what they like or don't like about living there. They are more prone to tell it like it is. Also make sure that if your reason for downsizing is actually to cash out on your current home and have less expenses, that you really will have less expenses. Local Realtors can give you information about Home Owner Association Fees, Rules and Regualtions or other factors that make downsizing options seem attractive and cost effective. The local experienced Realtor is a prime free resource - use it!
Whatever your reasons are, Myrtle Beach might be your downsize destination.

Myrtle Beach - America's Vacation Destination. Do you think that Myrtle Beach is just for Summer fun? Wrong! Myrtle Beach is hopping all year round! And even better yet - the average temperature in Myrtle Beach in December and January is 55 degrees! Even though temps sometimes drop overnight, by mid morning the sun has taken us back up to enjoyable warmth. No all day overcast, gloomy, cold, snow shoveling days here! No snow shovels needed in Myrtle Beach. I traded in my shovel for golf clubs and sea shells.
