First of all, when you’re looking for a house, don’t be tempted to buy something that’s too big for your needs. Some houses look so good that it’s all too easy to just buy the one that catches your eye. The problem with that approach is that you have to live in the house and keep it well-maintained. If you’re a couple with modest income and no children, you don’t need multiple bedrooms, a large lawn and a dining room that looks like it’s fit for a mansion. As you consider the available Myrtle Beach homes for sale, look for one that you can be comfortable in and also be certain that you can pay for its upkeep.
