Asked by Samsumax, Mount Pleasant, SC Thu May 31, 2012

Hello, I having a hard time finding a custom home ~ 3000 sq on a large private lot at a price point of~450k. my realtor just cut me lose as she does not have the time as we need to buy soon. I travel a lot and have little time. If I can't find something that has value I will continue to lease another year. Any ideas?

I just had a meeting with the sales agent at Dunes West last week. I know it has been a while since you posted your question but the market has changed tremendously since then. Have you found something already?

Talk soon,

I'm also looking for a custom home, 3+ bedrooms, pretty kitchen, open family room, lots of windows, ~ 2800 sq ft in a area with lots of trees. Is there an area in Mount Pleasant with new homes that don't have all those stairs? We are retiring and want the master suite on the main level.

Hi Susan. Charleston National and Dunes West have lots of trees. I can pick you up and drive you around the neighborhoods to see if you like them. I will also find the perfect house for you without all those stairs. :)

You have received some great answers already from very good Realtors. How large of a lot are you looking for? As I'm sure you've seen, it is difficult to find anything over 0.30 acres at that price point. That said, there are a few out there. Have you explored Horlbeck Creek (a bit further south on Rt 41)? They are a few great homes in there and one in particular listed at $499,500 that is on a 0.40 acre lot. Please let me know if you would like more info, or if you would like to chat further. In any event good luck finding the right home! It's a great time to buy right now!
Thank you,

I don't see my post, so I hope I am not repeating my self! I live in the area of Rivertowne, and actually do have a custom home not yet on the market located in Park West, Wheatstone area - custom home on almost .5 acre - very lushly landscaped, gorgeous venetian granite, seperate garage with unfinished frog and connected to home by beautiful breezeway - if you would like to look at it please contact me and I can make arrangements !! Therese Jenkins, 843-568-9748, I would love to help you find a home, and have been a Broker/owner in real estate for over 15 years, I've seen it all! Either way, I wish you the best of luck, it is a great time to buy and in that price range, particularily in the Dunes West/ RT/ PW areas, you can find a lot of house with serious negotiability, but I do feel the winds of change beginning.

I hit the Internet every day petty hard, have seen some of the homes thru open house and some with the realtor, who released me from the standard agreement, so I can find a home as she is very busy. The problem is the homes in my price point we do not like and or offer little value, ie priced at current market. Open to park west, need cario, wondo, and not sure of the darrel creek area? as its long drive to the airport. If you have a seller that needs to sale, and has value to give up, which is few these days please let me know.
