Charleston Waterfront Real Estate Listings

Charleston Waterfront Real Estate

Waterfront homes include beachfront, ocean view, marshfront, tidal creek, deep water, shallow water, riverfront, and pondfront. Charleston Waterfront Real Estate goes for a premium price depending on the type of water that the property overlooks.

If you are looking at Charleston Real Estate, Oceanfront homes are by far the most expensive, and you should expect to pay around $1.5 million for one of these. Deep water homes are also high in demand because Charleston is known for having some of the best boating on the East Coast. Most of these deep water homes are located on one of the three rivers feeding into the Charleston Harbor (Wando, Cooper, and Ashley), or on a large inlet in the numerous marshes surrounding Charleston. These homes usually have great waterfront views, and many have private docks with boat lifts. Many neighborhood of Charleston has excellent water front homes. You can search for different neighborhoods & communities, such as James Island Real Estate, using our MLS. 

Charleston tidal creek homes have some access to water throughout the day, but they have little to no water at low tide. These are the most affordable waterfront homes you'll find in Charleston, and they still offer the good views and privacy that so many buyers are looking for.

In price ranges under $400K, Charleston has very few homes for sale with good water access. Most buyers in this price point either choose a neighborhood with its own dock facilities, or they pay for dry stack storage or a boat slip elsewhere. Although buyers will have to drive a short distance to access their boat, they'll have better water access and a better location once they get the boat in the water. Another (more affordable) alternative is to use one of the many public boat landings in Charleston.
