Downtown Charleston

Downtown is what most people think of when they hear "Charleston" because it has the best shopping, restaurants, historic sites, tourist attractions, museums, hotels, and parks. Home buyers looking for a city lifestyle with walkability tend to choose Downtown. Because of the high demand for these homes, peninsular Charleston has the priciest non-beach real estate in South Carolina. Downtown Charleston homes range from newer condos to antebellum mansions to quaint carriage houses, providing the widest range of real estate options you'll find. This is a great video tour for anyone looking to relocate to the area because it gives you a glimpse of what Charleston has to offer, even if you choose to live in a nearby suburb.

Mount Pleasant

Mount Pleasant is one of the best areas to live in Charleston because of the high performing public schools, large scale shopping and commercial development, great selection of newer homes, close proximity to the beaches (Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island), and upscale master planned communities.

If you're looking for a home with access to amenities like a swimming pool, tennis, or golf, Mt. Pleasant is an ideal suburb to start your home search.
