Relocating to North Charleston, SC

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCA lot of people know that they want to relocate to South Carolina, but they don't know which city is the best fit. Charleston is one of the best places to live in South Carolina and a very popular area that folks choose!

Charleston, SC

Charleston needs little introduction to most people because it consistently ranks among the top places to visit and to live in the country. With more than 4.8 million tourists who visit Charleston annually, there is always something to do. Numerous festivals and annual events take place during the height of tourist season, but the most popular tend to be the Cooper River Bridge Run, Spoleto performing arts festival, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE), Wine + Food Festival, and the Volvo Car Open (formerly called the Family Circle Cup which is the longest running professional women’s tennis tournament in the United States). Charleston is also known as a foodie destination, and you’ll find write ups of its new, trendy restaurants along with the tried and true icons in just about any travel magazine’s current edition.

When people relocate to South Carolina and visit the state’s major cities, they often choose Charleston because it offers a lifestyle that is so unique. The port city’s history and architecture have a strong European influence, and its appreciation for the arts is integral in the many venues, art galleries, museums, and local advertising you’ll find. Folks looking for a city with charm and Southern hospitality tend to gravitate toward Charleston because there are few cities that embody these characteristics so well.

Residents can enjoy 6 of South Carolina’s best beaches, 22 public and private golf courses, some of the state’s best public and private schools, three colleges/universities, numerous parks, farmers’ markets, the South Carolina Aquarium, and many historic sites. If you enjoy the outdoors, you’ll find boat and kayak launches scattered throughout the Charleston marshes and waterways, many miles’ worth of hiking trails through the county park system, and SC’s largest climbing wall. Charleston has a little something for everyone, regardless of age or personal interests.

People also appreciate the fantastic healthcare associated with the Medical University of South Carolina, and residents from all over the state seek out MUSC for its highly ranked specialists. The biggest drawback to living in Charleston is that there are so many people wanting to live within close driving distance to Downtown and the beaches that this high demand makes it one of South Carolina’s most expensive cities to live. People moving from more expensive markets like New York or California think Charleston is comparatively affordable.

Best Place to Live in South Carolina

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCTropical beaches and sea islands, South Carolina lies in the southeast of the United States and has a whole host of darling towns and villages to explore.

Hilton Head Island, infamous Myrtle Beach and of course Charleston, home to Fort Sumter; the list of reasons to love little old SC goes on and on! This state once thrived on agriculture and natural resources but in more modern times there is a big industry for steel and machinery production, meaning jobs are in no short supply.

Talking about jobs, what other factors do we need to take into consideration when seeking a new place to live?

Some would say access to public schools, others would say cost of living, some would have a strong focus on seeking a town with the lowest crime rates. In reality, it is all these factors, and a few more, that we think about when searching for a new abode.

We appreciate that finding all that information in one place can be quite a challenge so we have risen to the occasion and created our list of the 15 best places to live in South Carolina, taking into account all the facts, figures and statistics that are important to you!

10. Charleston, SC

Back to South Carolina’s picture perfect coast, we go. This is a port city that was founded way back in 1670, making it one of the oldest in the country. Speaking of old there is a yesteryear charm to Charleston with its cobbled streets and antebellum houses painted pastel hues of yellow and grey.

This is an expensive place to play, but not Sullivan’s Island expensive. With 127,694 people living here earning roughly $55,500 a year there is affordability hidden behind the pricey exterior.

In terms of public schooling, Charleston is the place to be, 68 schools in the district and with several offering a Montessori style of learning, parents get offered a broad range of options for their youngsters.

The Best Places in the State of South Carolina? Charleston is in the Top Ten

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 08, 2018

The cream of the crop in the Palmetto State.

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCTo the untrained eye they are the places that have awesome economies. They’re the places in Palmetto State where people have the best jobs, residents are all above average, and the sun shines the most.

However, at HomeSnacks, we don’t trust the untrained eye and instead look to data to understand the best places to call home in South Carolina.

There might be some surprises on this list, but when you look at the unbiased data, it’s hard to argue against.

After analyzing 61 places in South Carolina, we came up with this list of the best places:

  1. Mount Pleasant
  2. Tega Cay
  3. Mauldin
  4. James Island
  5. Lexington
  6. Forest Acres
  7. Simpsonville
  8. Clemson
  9. Charleston
  10. Hanahan

Follow along as we provide more insight into how we reached our overall best places to live in South Carolina.

The Pressing Question: Size

Before we even started to collect data, we had to answer a tough question: Is it fair to pit Columbia with a population of 132,537 against places with a population of 18?

We firmly decided no, that just isn’t fair.

So to create our ranking, we broke places to live into three tiers:

  • Cities — Populations over 5,200
  • Towns — Populations between 1,000 and 5,200
  • Small Towns — Populations below 1,000

This left us with 61 cities, 143 towns, and 157 small towns.

We then decided, no matter how much anyone loves their town, the best places have more of everything and therefore you need to have over 5,200 people to truly be ‘the best’.

How We Calculated The Best Place To Live In South Carolina

Now that we had our set of cities, it was time to rank them.

We ranked each place in South Carolina across a number of criteria from one to 61, with one being the best.

We then took the average rank across all criteria, with the city posting the lowest overall score being crowned the winner of the title “Best Place To Live In South Carolina”.

The criteria we looked at were:

  • Median Home Values
  • Median Income
  • Population Density (Higher better)
  • Unemployment Rate
  • Commute Time
  • Crime
  • Education Levels
  • Health Insurance Coverage
  • Poverty rates

9. Charleston

  • Population: 129,888
  • Rank Last Year: 9 (No Change)
  • Home Values: $269,400 (4th best)
  • Unemployment Rate: 5.9% (13th best)

Charleston is one of the greatest places to be in South Carolina.

Being in the top 25% for unemployment, education, and crime index all help to keep Charleston from acquiring any kind of inferiority complex.

That, and the fact that Charleston is largest town in the top ten.

We wouldn’t be surprised if more and more publications start to call Charleston one of America’s gems for 2018.

Reasons to Move to Charleston, SC

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 01, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCWith its cobblestone walkways, incredible historic sites and miles of stunning beaches, hundreds of residents are moving to Charleston, SC—and for very good reason. Charleston was recently named Travel & Leisure’s top city in the entire U.S. for the fifth year running. You’ll soon find out why.

You’ll immediately be drawn to its charm, slow pace of life and welcoming locals. But before you pack your bags and hit the road, we put together everything you need to know about moving to the South’s favorite city.

1. It’s the friendliest city in the U.S.

Living in Charleston is something you have to experience to understand. And with some of the nicest neighbors in the country, why wait any longer to experience it?

It’s welcoming. Southern hospitality reigns supreme in Charleston—so much that it was recently been ranked the friendliest city in the U.S. If you’re moving to Charleston from other parts of the U.S., prepare for a change in pace. Don’t be surprised if strangers go out of their way to help you, smile at you or strike up some friendly conversation. It’s just a way of life.

It’s not just the locals that love it. People around the world have grown an appreciation for Charleston. It was recently voted the No. 2 city in the entire world—and it’s the first domestic destination to earn the No. 1 ranking the year prior!

2. Charleston is a historical haven.

As the oldest city in South Carolina, Charleston is a fascinating town stemming from the beginning of the Civil War. The nearly 350-year-old city is the cultural capital of the south and continues to honor its deep-rooted history today.

Welcome to the Holy City. Charleston gets its nickname as “The Holy City” because of the religious freedom that was founded on the peninsula several hundred years ago.

Travel back in time. In Charleston, everything from the churches and cobblestones to the iron gates has a story to tell. No matter how long you’ve lived in Charleston, you’ll never get sick of learning the history behind some of the city’s famous landmarks. Take a ferry to Fort Sumter and stand where the Civil War began, visit some of Charleston’s largest and oldest mansions, and check out America’s oldest preserved plantation house still open to the public.

Appreciate a preservation city. Charleston landed the top spot for 10 best cities for historic preservation. The city prides itself on having the oldest community-based historic preservation group, The Preservation Society of Charleston. In 1931, Charleston also became the first city in the U.S. to establish a board of architectural review.

3. The weather in Charleston is pretty much perfect.

When it comes to weather, Charleston hits the sweet spot by avoiding harsh winters and brutally hot summers. The average low temperature on the coldest day of the year is 38 degrees, and the summer month temperatures rarely climb above the 90s. You can still enjoy outdoor activities even in the middle of winter.

If you’re moving to Charleston, SC and you’d do anything to spend a day outside, you’re in luck. Located on the coast of the Atlantic, the area takes full advantage of its seaside location and offers every kind of land and water activity you can imagine.

Find your beach. Charleston is a peninsula, so you’ll soon get used to being surrounded by water. There are three beaches within a 20-minute drive from downtown, offering plenty of water activities and boat storage in Charleston. Charleston was also recently named to the top 10 best cities for water activities!

4. You can build a strong future in Charleston.

Between impressive schools, low cost of living and a great economy, Charleston is a great place to plant some roots and grow a career. Here’s what you need to know:

The Schools

Charleston County School District (CCSD) is the second largest school system in South Carolina, representing a unique blend of urban, suburban, and rural schools that span 1,000 square miles. There are great colleges and universities in the area, including The College of Charleston, Trident Technical College and The Citadel—one of the most prestigious military colleges in the nation. If you have young children, there are several great elementary schools in the district: Ashley River Creative Arts Elementary School, Orange Grove Elementary Charter School, Montessori Community School and more.

The Job Opportunities

Last year, the Charleston region’s economy grew at 3.1 percent, nearly double the national average. The largest industries in the Charleston region involve the medical field, military and the ports (Charleston harbor ranks as the fourth largest port in the entire U.S.). With companies like Boeing, Volvo and Medical University of South Carolina adding thousands of new jobs to the region, it’s no surprise that the area continues to grow.

Thriving Millennials

Because of a strong local economy, excellent job opportunities and city investments creating new businesses, Charleston has become a sought-after place to live–especially for millennials. NerdWallet crunched the numbers for 66 cities and towns in South Carolina to determine the best places for job seekers, and half of those places are within 30 minutes of Charleston. The city’s economy has been on the upswing and attracting the kind of tech startups that hire large numbers of Millennials.

The Military

The military employs over 27,000 people in Charleston. Aside from the renowned Citadel, there are a number of active bases in the Charleston area including the Coast Guard Sector Charleston and Joint Base Charleston—host to over 60 Department of Defense and Federal agencies.

5. There are endless things to do in Charleston, SC.

From rich history to arts and culture, to activities on the Atlantic coast, Charleston is full of things to do for anyone and everyone.

Try Out the Local Fare

Family-friendly city street houses and apartment complexes in Charleston SC

When it comes to raising a family, Charleston is one of the best cities to live in America. There’s a wonderful public school system, low crime rates and endless activities for kids and families.

7. Getting around Charleston, SC is a breeze.

Like any popular city, Charleston comes with some traffic. But for being such a popular moving destination, commutes are much more tolerable than cities of similar size.

Renting vs. Buying in Retirement

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 25, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCA white picket fence surrounding a house with 2.4 children, a dog, a cat, a station wagon. This is the American dream.

But owning your own home might not be so dreamy as you approach retirement. In fact, since 1990 homeownership has been decreasing among 55- to 64-year-olds, a trend which experts suggest is likely to continue in the coming years.

Owning a home in retirement does have benefits, but make sure you weigh up the pros and cons before you make a decision. Here are a few reasons to consider on both sides of the argument.

Benefits of renting

Even if you have long since paid off your mortgage, your twilight years could still be plagued by the cost of home maintenance.

As your property gets older, what were once reasonable maintenance costs could balloon into an expensive burden.

Sometimes your home isn’t somewhere that you want to be. Maybe you want to move to a state with warmer weather, or have the flexibility to up sticks and move closer to family. Some retirees migrate with the birds, taking up an abode abroad in a different, warmer climate during winter months.

As a renter, you always have the option to leave as soon as your lease ends, unlike selling a home which could take months and involve many expenses.

Selling your house prior to retirement might be a good move if you are looking for a for a location independent lifestyle in your golden years.

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCThe U.S. Declaration of Independence speaks about the “pursuit of happiness” as a universal right Everyone gets joy from different things, whether it’s family, friends, activities, entertainment or work.

WalletHub drew upon the various findings of positive-psychology research in order to determine which among more than 180 of the largest U.S. cities is home to the happiest people in America. We examined each city based on 28 key indicators of happiness, ranging from depression rate to income-growth rate to average leisure time spent per day.

Charleston, SC One of the Friendliest Cities in the South

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 27, 2018

Abberly Crossing Apartment, Ladson, SCWhen it comes to friendliness, hospitality, and warmth, cities often get a bad rap: The traffic, the crowds, the lack of manners! Southern cities, though, tell a different story: Despite the hustle-and-bustle, they still manage to exude the graciousness of small towns and radiate the warmth of a Sunday potluck after church.

While old-fashioned hospitality seems to color the entirety of our region, some cities still manage to distinguish themselves as the friendliest of all. So we asked, and y’all answered, supplying us with fifteen of the South’s friendliest cities. There may be crowds in these Southern destinations, but they’ll smile at you; and when there’s a long line outside of that crazy-popular barbecue spot, well, people will respect your place in it—no pushing or shoving.

That’s just how we city slickers do things in the South … New York and L.A., it’s time to take notes. And, number one on the list of Friendliest Cities in the South...

1. Charleston, South Carolina
