5 Advantages to Buying in Charleston

Posted by Lee and Katherine Keadle on Thursday, October 1st, 2015 at 4:14pm.

Once you’ve visited the “Holy City,” its appeal is undeniable. Charleston is a metropolitan area with a small town feel, which is nearly impossible for other cities and towns to accomplish. It’s no wonder that Charleston is consistently voted to be one of the best places in the U.S. to live, work, and visit. At The Keadle Real Estate Group, we cannot argue with its beauty or intrinsic charm, as we are long-time devoted residents of Charleston. If you are considering purchasing Charleston Real Estate, here are 5 advantages to buying in Charleston:

  1. Historical significance: First settled in 1663, Charleston has a palpable history coursing through the city’s streets and buildings. It provides its residents with the benefit of living in close proximity to points of great historical significance while enjoying the modern comforts of a metropolitan area.  

  2. Versatility: If you prefer a city feel or the familiarity of a close-knit community, you can find either of these in or around Charleston. With beach towns a short distance away from the metropolitan area, you can have the best of both worlds when you buy a home in Charleston.

  3. Affordable, upscale communities: From the city communities to the island developments, you can undoubtedly find a house that feels like home while also being within your price range. As an added bonus, those families with school-aged children will be pleased with the highly-rated school districts and the several nearby colleges.

  4. Thriving job market: The job market in Charleston is considered to be comparatively stronger than other areas in the U.S. with a lower than average unemployment rate.

  5. Good investment: Homes and properties in Charleston are on the rise in terms of value, which means purchasing a home now is a good investment. If home values continue to rise at this steady rate, purchasing later may not yield the boost in equity you hope to see in the long-term. Or, you’ll have to settle for a smaller home for the same price.
