What should sell you on buying in Charleston is Charleston. Not a big deal until you said you had plans to possibly live in the unit yourself one day. Charleston is a tremendous city. One of the greatest cities in the world. We are going to lead the nation out of this real estate mess. We are doing great and our appreciation rate is always going to be higher than Columbia's. Charleston may have older houses and may have costs associated with flood insurance and hurricanes. But it's all worth it.
