Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SC“Jaw dropping” Michael became a monster category 4 hurricane with 145 mph winds overnight and is expected to get stronger Wednesday as it approaches landfall along the Florida panhandle.

Forecasters warned that residents in our apartments in Ladson, SC face tropical storm conditions Wednesday afternoon into Thursday with flooding rains and winds or gusts up to hurricane force of 74 mph — strong enough to snap trees, damage houses and make driving perilous. Isolated tornadoes are possible, particularly closer to the coast. Dangerous surf and coastal flooding is expected.

The Benefits to Living in a College Town

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCLiving in a college town might seem like an unusual decision once you're out of school. Sure, living there might make sense while your own children are in school, if you're going back to college to enhance your career or if you're taking a teaching opportunity. But if you aren't connected to the university, staying in a college town or choosing to move to one might seem like a strange choice. It isn't.

Let's be clear as to what a college town is. Here, we're talking about a smaller community in which a large university provides employment for a significant portion of the town's residents, and many other residents are involved with businesses that serve students and alumni. In these towns, the student population makes up a significant part of the population.

College towns offer a number of perks beyond simply having university-level classes down the street.

Here are five benefits that come from living in a college town.

Low cost of living. College towns tend to have a low cost of living. After all, landlords are often renting properties to college students without a lot of money.

Often, the sticker price of rent in such towns is fairly low, but the leases may involve a lot of protection for the landlord against property damage. If you're a mature adult who isn't going to have a big party every weekend, you're likely to avoid all of those extra expenses.

Furthermore, such towns are often full of a wide variety of low-cost services, such as inexpensive restaurants and many secondhand shops, which are usually well-stocked. They typically have good yard sale markets since students often buy items and leave them to be resold when they depart.

Cultural opportunities. College towns often attract cultural events and tours from musicians, stage companies and speakers that would not otherwise come to a town of that size. This gives you the opportunity to live in a relatively small-town environment while still seeing top-notch cultural events.

Sometimes, these performances and concerts are on campus but open to the public, so you may want to watch the schedule of events there. Many college towns, however, have other venues, such as bars and small concert venues, that are often used by traveling performers. There's usually something to see or do all the time, at least in comparison to other towns of similar size.

Low-cost entertainment opportunities. The universities themselves tend to provide an abundance of low-cost or free entertainment opportunities to the community. For starters, politicians, authors, celebrities, artists and other public figures often appear at universities and colleges in speaking and question-and-answer forums that are open to the general public for free.

Beyond that, universities and colleges often have a range of special-interest groups that work to share that interest with the broader community, offering demonstrations and events on campus and in the town itself. Pay attention to the local news, community calendar and college's calendar to find all kinds of low-cost entertainment options.

Easy ways to make money. Many universities have thriving research projects that seek out citizens of the surrounding town for paid opportunities. You might be paid to play a game or eat a strange food and give your thoughts on the experience, for example, as researchers study some aspect of what you're doing. It can often be an easy way to earn a few bucks.

Plus, many college towns have businesses that offer simple ways to earn a few extra dollars. While these businesses might target students, members of the community are typically welcome. You might be able to make extra money from donating plasma, driving for a ride-hailing service or offering up transcription and editing services through sites like Upwork (both professors and some students will use this).

Exceptional medical services. If you choose to live near a university with a good medical school, you'll have access to top-notch medical services at a reasonable price, which can be a great bargain. Medical schools tend to offer a wide variety of medical services to the public, with those services used as learning opportunities for students.

For people in town, this typically means that medical appointments and procedures involve an experienced doctor paired with a student or two. The student learns about the practice of medical care while the doctor tries to provide a good model for the student. Thus, if you don't mind having a student watching and learning from your medical visits, using the local medical school's services can be a great bargain for excellent care.

All in all, there are a lot of perks that come from living in a college town beyond the educational opportunities. Don't overlook those benefits.

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCDeciding where to lay the foundation for a long and prosperous career can be a tall order, especially for recent graduates entering the job market for the first time.

The market is ripe for new graduates, though, with an unemployment rate of only 4.1 percent as of March 2018. And employers plan to hire 4 percent more graduates from the Class of 2018 than they did from the Class of 2017.

Starting a career doesn’t need to be that difficult or intimidating. WalletHub compared the relative market strength and overall livability of more than 180 U.S. cities to help recent college graduates find the best cradles for their budding careers.

Charleston, SC: One of the South's Best Cities

Joseph Coupal - Monday, September 10, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCWith everyone and their mama booking stays in picturesque historic neighborhoods and making reservations at the buzzed-about new restaurants, sticking close to home has never sounded so good. Southern cities are making a name for themselves as vibrant hubs of incredible regional cuisine, culture, music, and design. Not only are some fresh new Southern cities stepping onto the scene, but some longtime favorites are back and better than ever—a testament to their lasting power and effervescent draw. Travelers are flocking to the South in search of our signature food, drink, and scenery; and all we can think is, who can blame them?

In these Southern cities, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a meal you don’t love or a historic square that doesn’t permeate charm and tradition. Experience firsthand the classic and debonair flair of Savannah and Charleston; the young and industrial spirit of Nashville and San Antonio; or the quirky and laidback attitude of Asheville and Chattanooga. Take a stroll through cobblestone streets that might feel European, but definitely smell of the smoky aroma of barbecue or the sweet scent of blooming magnolias. Sit a spell on a sunny day along the river with an iced tea or at the brewery with a cold one. Odds are, you’ll run into a few old friends, and make a few new. These cities are the blood running through the veins to the heart of the South. From a glance, it might seem too good to be true; but trust us when we say that each more than lives up to the hype.

Southerners have hometown pride stronger and truer than the tides, and we have the pleasure of feeling that pride for the whole region. On the list of the South’s best cities for 2018...

Charleston, SC is a Millennial Magnet

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCWhere are the millennials going? Charleston, South Carolina according to a recent USA Today piece, “Post-college towns’ brim with youth, jobs.”

The piece uses recent U.S. Census data to identify 289 cities that have more 20-somethings than teens—or simply put, cities that are “Millennial Magnets.” For Charleston, and only a dozen other cities, there is a 2-to-1 or higher ratio. So why are millennials coming to Charleston, one of the oldest cities on the list? USA Today says:

“A booming tech start-up economy and a thriving arts and restaurant scene have helped this…tourist magnet do something that places across the USA have been trying to do for decades: attract young, college-educated workers and keep them there as they start families. The mild weather and easy access to nearly 200 miles of beaches don’t exactly hurt.”

The article calls the recent demographic change in Charleston “nothing short of breath taking,” and that the area’s lifestyle and urban design sensibilities have played major draws for millennials. “They’re in Charleston to live in Charleston.”

As post-college grads flock to Charleston, companies are coming to the Lowcountry to take advantage of the rapidly growing workforce. Lisa Maki, a co-founder of the California tech start-up PokitDok, says half of their employees are based in Charleston and all of them are software engineers. Maki mentions that good engineers in Charleston are “…about half the cost of comparable workers in Silicon Valley,” and not to mention, office space in Charleston is “probably a quarter of the price.”

The piece also highlights the job growth being driven by the many Charleston-based technology startups hiring in the region, including SPARC, Bibliolabs and Benefitfocus, in addition to major aerospace company, Boeing.

With a population growing three times the national average, Charleston is poised to reach a population of more than 1 million in the next 15 years.

Millennials Can Afford to Live Here, and Actually Want to

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 07, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCForget San Francisco, Washington D.C. and New York City.

There are cities where twenty- and thirty-somethings who can’t afford to spend $2,500 can and want to live.

The Penny Hoarder has developed a definitive list of the top 25 coolest and most affordable cities for millennials. It’s based on a rigorous analysis of housing and local price data, economic statistics and something called a Coffee Fanatic Score. Yes, you read that right.

You probably haven’t seen many of these cities on “Top Millennial City” lists before, and that’s for good reason.

These are cities where young people crippled with student loan debt can actually find work and afford a one-bedroom apartment, but also find a new brewery or wine bar on weekends. Their millennial populations are growing — or already sizable — and they tend to be better for walking or biking to work.

No. 13 — Charleston, South Carolina

  • Affordability Rank: 17
  • Millennial Happiness Rank: 15
  • Economy Health Rank: 10

Things to do: Charleston has a good balance of nightlife, food and the outdoors. King Street is the go-to place for brunch, shopping and bars and restaurants. Revelry Brewing Co. is a highlight of the ubiquitous beer scene. (Did we mention millennials like beer?) And, as with any millennial-friendly city, there’s a farmers market.
