Myrtle Beach Home Exchange
Since Myrtle Beach is such a fabulous vacation destination, many of the homes are vacation homes or second homes for their homeowners. That makes the area the ideal location for a home exchange. Rather than sitting empty, vacation home owners often offer their homes for home swaps, relocating a stay in someone else's home for a stay in their own. This makes for affordable travel for both parties!
