That being said, if you are looking at real estate in Myrtle Beach SC, there are definitely some communities that you will want to prioritize.

Grand Dunes

This is the largest and most meticulously planned community in the whole of the Grand Strand. The original subdivisions are gated and on the west side of the bridge that crosses the Intracoastal Waterway, but it has not expanded to include oceanfront lands, as well as homes between Highway 17 Business and Highway 17 Bypass.

Carolina Forest

This is one of the most popular places to live in of the entire Grand Strand. The Carolina Forest sprawls over a 9000-acre master-planned community with approximately 30 neighborhoods and prices that can fit into a variance of different budgets.

Located off Highway 501, Carolina Forest has its own schools, post office, medical offices, shopping, centers, and more!

Market Common

This community was years in the making and is a crown jewel for city planners in Myrtle Beach. Located right where the old Myrtle Beach Air Force base used to be, the new neighborhoods now revolve around a shopping and dining district.

Here you will be able to interact with fresh faces and meet old friends for joyful walks, delicious lunch and dinner meals, outdoor jogs, and more.

Another benefit is that you can find houses that fit your price point no matter the budget, as well as pick from different styles including brightly colored Charleston-style homes, traditional brick executive homes, condos, townhouses, work and play condos, and everything in between!


Located in the south Strand next to the famed Surfside Beach, Prestwick is a community for those who adore an active and outdoor lifestyle. Not only does it feature 13 competition-quality tennis courts, Prestwick is also home to a swimming pool, award-winning golf course, and stylish clubhouse.
