It all depends on what bank processed the foreclosure. Some banks work faster than others. With your dates above I would of hoped it would of already been listed for auction. Keep an eye out at to see when it appears or email me the address and I can do some follow up for you as well from my database.

Thanks and Have a Great Day!

Aside from state housing most investors who have properties for rent don't advertise if they would accept section 8 or not. My only suggestion for you would be to check the post and courrier when you find a place call and ask if they would accept section 8 or not. ... more

Dear Lizzie,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you with your relocation to the Charleston area!

The Avondale area has become very popular. My daughter and son-in-law have been renting there for a number of years since he started school at MUSC. I am in the neighborhood a good bit and would be glad to investigate the available rentals for you.

Let me know how I can help!

Best regards,


Cheryll Woods-Flowers

Dear Amy,
I see that your home has been on the market for 122 days now. How have your showings been coming along? I'm sure things have slowed down due to the time of year. The fact that your home is on the marsh and has a nice fenced in yard and a 2 car garage are all great aspects to your home. Here is a marketing idea: You could consider offering a bonus to the buyer's agent if they get their buyer to put a contract on your home by a certain date...Nov. 30, let's say. Then have your real estate agent market this to other agents. It could breathe new life into your listing. Good luck!

Hi Kimberly,

First, congrats on completing the most important step - asking! Fear of the unknown and/or rejection probably keeps many people from owning their own home, simply because they are afraid to ask! What I suggest you do is start by talking to a reputable mortgage lender. If you have a good relationship with your bank or credit union, that's a great place to start. If you don't want to go that route, there are plenty of lenders who are more than willing to talk to you. I happen to know a couple excellent lenders in the Charleston/Mt. Pleasant area. (Shoot me a private email and I'll be glad to get you in touch with them). Talking to a lender doesn't cost a dime! What they'll do is ask you some questions about your income/outgo, credit history, work history, etc. They will probably pull your credit report. Don't be afraid! This is simply an information gathering meeting! After talking with you and discussing your goals, they can tell you if you qualify for a mortgage or not. If you qualify, make sure you undestand what the monthly payment will be (and make sure they understand what you're comfortable with). If not, no problem! You've already done more than most will do - ask! What they will do is give you a step-by-step plan that will get you to your goal - owning a home. At that point, you walk away with knowledge and a plan! That's way more than most people have! Good luck and contact me if you have any questions! ... more

You might even want to just consider adding on to your existing home. This isn't the best thing to do if you are already the nicest home your neighborhood, but it is a great option for some home owners that are happy where they live and the addition makes sense when considering future resale. Contractors are priced lower now, so the savings are still there.
