Where to Watch 4th of July Fireworks in Charleston, SC

Joseph Coupal - Monday, July 02, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCAmerica’s birthday is coming up, and the Charleston area is celebrating with its very own pyrotechnic sky candles. Fireworks are a major part of the Fourth of July experience. If you live in an apartment in Ladson, SC here’s where you can get your fix on the Fourth.

To start, the Patriots Point fireworks offer a lot of versatility. They’re the closest to downtown and since they launch over the harbor you are spoiled with locations to watch.

Option 1: Watch the Patriots Point fireworks at Patriots Point. The party starts at 4 p.m. with activities for kids, live music, and food and drinks for sale before the fireworks launch around 9 p.m. Unfortunately, flight deck tickets are already sold out, so you’ll have to be content with the land-side bash. It’s free with the cost of parking – $10 all day.

Option 2: Gaze across the harbor from the SC Aquarium at Sea Stars and Stripes. Starting at 7 p.m., a ticket will get you access to the aquarium’s exhibits, food, drinks, and a view of the fireworks. It’s $60 for adults and $30 for children. Aquarium members get $5 off, and children under 2 are free.

Option 3: Combine fireworks with the Ravenel Bridge and live music from Recollections at the Mt. Pleasant Pier during the Uncle Sam Jam. Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 the day of, if available.

Option 4: Drink before the show at downtown rooftop bars. Both The Watch ($75/adult, $25/ages six-20, Free/under six) at the Restoration Hotel and The Rooftop at Vendue ($250/VIP table, $25/access to bridge bar, $15/access to main level) are offering special Fourth of July packages, with some that include food and drinks.

Option 5: A boat. Just motor out into the harbor, or find your friend with a boat and ask to motor out into the harbor. Failing that, Charleston Harbor Tours is offering a Fourth of July dinner cruise.

Other good, free spots to watch include the top few floors of the SC Aquarium parking garage, Waterfront Park, and Demetre Park on James Island. Don’t bother with the Ravenel Bridge, as the pedestrian path is closed during the fireworks.

If you prefer free festivities further up the river, check out North Charleston’s Riverfront Park. The city’s annual Fourth of July Festival runs from 3-9:45 p.m. and features food trucks, live music, activities for kids, craft vendors, and a massive fireworks display.

Interested in a side of beach with your fireworks? Both Folly and IOP are launching their annual free Fourth of July displays at sundown. Make sure you get there early if you want to secure a good spot, and be prepared for traffic after the show is over.


It Costs More to Own a Home vs. Rent One in South Carolina

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 26, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCOwning a home is often considered the American dream — and it's an expensive one. Homeowners in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., pay from 33% to 93% more for housing each month than do renters living in the same state, according to a new NerdWallet analysis.

But many homeowners reap benefits that you can't get from renting, such as financial security and stability, tax deductions and a vehicle for retirement savings. 

While renting can't offer those long-term financial benefits, it's cheaper to rent on a month-to-month basis, the analysis found. If you're wondering how to save money for a down payment, renting can help you build that nest egg — and in extremely expensive or competitive markets, renting might be better for the long haul.

To determine the monthly homeownership premium — the additional cost of owning instead of renting, expressed as a percentage — NerdWallet compared 2015 American Community Survey data from the U.S. Census Bureau for the median gross rent and median homeownership cost in each state and Washington, D.C. Median gross rent includes the costs of monthly rent and utilities for all kinds of rental properties, and median homeownership cost includes monthly mortgage payments, real estate taxes, insurance and utilities.

This comparison doesn't include the down payment required to buy a home, which is traditionally 20% of the home price for conventional mortgages, but is lower for FHA or VA loans.

Key takeaways

Owning is more expensive everywhere. Across all 50 states and Washington, D.C., it costs more each month to own a home than to rent. The median cost people pay nationwide to own a home is 54% more than the median cost to rent each month.

In some states, the cost of owning far eclipses renting.

It costs 43% more to own vs. rent each month in South Carolina.

Charleston, SC is One of The Most Prosperous Cities in the U.S.

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCSo which is the best city in the U.S.? Ask ten people and you’ll get ten different answers. To each their own, of course, but most of us would agree that a city has to be capable of progress, and vitality is – ehm – vital, if it is to be considered attractive in the long run. After all, a city must be better today than it was yesterday, but also have the momentum to reach a bit further tomorrow to keep itself on the radar. This narrows the circle enough to get us somewhere.

We looked at six indicators of prosperity in U.S. cities with populations exceeding 100,000 to see how they’ve changed between 2000 and 2016 according to U.S. Census data and single out the ones that have made the most progress overall. For this purpose, we ranked these 303 cities by the magnitude of proportional changes that affected their population, median income, home values, share of inhabitants holding a higher education degree, poverty rate and unemployment rate. The final prosperity ranking was set up based on the combined value of the individual ranks obtained in these six fields.

Other Homeownership Costs Can Top $9K a Year

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 29, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCPrepare yourself by knowing the less-obvious costs of owning a home. Insurance, maintenance and more add up faster than you think.

Buyers too often focus on a home’s list price or mortgage payment to determine what they can afford. However, the numerous less-obvious costs associated with homeownership can affect the monthly bottom line.

To help home buyers budget more accurately, Zillow and Thumbtack identified several common but often overlooked home expenses and calculated what homeowners around the country could expect to pay for them. The analysis also included utility cost estimates.

While each extra expense might seem small, they cost U.S. homeowners, on average, $9,080 a year, according to the report.

Unavoidable costs

Nationally, homeowners pay an average of $6,059 a year in unavoidable costs, which include homeowners insurance, property taxes and utilities. Since nearly half (47 percent) of home shoppers today are first-time buyers, many of these extra costs may come as a surprise.

Maintenance expenses

Nearly all homeowners (96 percent) have made some kind of improvement to their homes. While many complete these projects themselves, those who pay professionals can expect to spend an average of $3,021 for the six most common hired home projects: carpet cleaning, yard work, gutter cleaning, HVAC maintenance, house cleaning and pressure washing.

Budget planning

More than a third of buyers go over budget on a home purchase. In addition to the mortgage, the price includes estimated property taxes, insurance, PMI, utilities, taxes, HOA fees and closing costs.
