You need to get linked into a Property Preservation company or a disaster repair company, BUT my question is: who has title to the property? The previous owner, the bank, or you?

Dear Steve,

Like many things in Real Estate, it depends.

I currently live in Old Village Landing in Mount Pleasant and we have an HOA. We have C&R's but they are not tightly enforced. Our neighbors keep up their properties and we don't worry about property values due to conditions of homes in the neighborhood. Our annual HOA dues are under $300 but we don't have any amenities.

On the other hand, if a neighborhood doesn't have an HOA and homeowners do not take care of their homes, it could negatively impact property values.

I think that the key is to stay active with the governance of the HOA if you have one so that you are happy with the rules and enforcement that are put into place and in either case to be willing to talk one on one with your neghbors when they are not maintaining their homes. Very often I have found that if someone is not taking care of things that there is something going on in their lives and they may need assistance.

I hope that this helps! Do not hesitate to contact me if I can help further.

Best regards,


Cheryll Woods-Flowers, Keller Williams

That's an easy one. Where I live for one Hanahan and Goose Creek area as well as Moncks Corner. Not only more house for the money BUT the lowest tax's insurance and utility costs in all Chas. Sc. Negative it's going to take an extra 10 min to down town and 15 to the beack. I just helped a young couple buy a 4br 3 bath 2 car garage NEW for under 200,000. Closing costs paid, builder gave a refrigerator and I gave them the Realtor Bonus I had earned of 1000 dollars which they used to pay for blinds and a garage door opener. My policy is that I don't pocket bonus money, it goes to my clients. Need more info

Thank you

Lake house? Like one of the large recreational lakes that are 60 miles inland? Not really near Charleston. I am not really sure what you are looking for. There is Lake Moultrie and Lake Marion. Lake Moultrie is closes to Charleston. Or there is a lake here in downtown Charleston called Colonial Lake. It is not suburban.

Best Regards, Dan

The Charleston Real Team answered:

That should be a fine spot for walking and exploring. As with any city be wise about walking on your own at night, etc but this location is a good one with easy access to restaurants, museums, and more.

Let me know if you interested in seeing any real estate while you are here. I would love to help you in any way I can.

-a great county park with lots of family events along with many smaller park areas
-if you are a boating fan, easy access public boat landings
-lots of opportunities to live in a home with water views, marsh views, etc
-lots of great area local restaurants
-fantastic grocery stores, we have 3 Piggly Wiggly stores, a new Super BI-LO along with a high end Publix & Harris Teeter

This is just a start of a list of why James Island is a great place to live.

Hi AJ,

I replied to your wife's posting on Trulia earlier this evening.

I'd love to chat directly with you and your wife to more closely address your questions, concerns and interest in relocating to the Charleston area.

My contact information:
Maureen Cody

I'd love to share information with you specific to your career interests with the air freight industry and your wife's career in HR.

I relocated to the Charleston area from the Northeast - I took a leap of faith to move here with my daughters just shy of 3 years ago -- we are originally from the Boston MA area. We just love it here and they are flourishing as college students at the College of Charleston and the Art Insititute of Charleston.

My girls and I traveled to Charleston for a week in April of 2005 to check out colleges, real estate and the area - we instantly feel in love with the friendly people and the history/charm of Charleston. I put my home up for sale as soon as I got back -- and was in Charleston later in the year!!

We live in the Old Village - as unique area of Mt Pleasant -- it has a special charm that will remind you of the Northeast!! Check out information about the Old Village/Old Mount Pleasant on my website:

Also feel free to research homes for sale on my site.

If you are considering renting prior to purchasing a home, I can assist you with that as well!

Philadelphia has alot of characteristics of Boston - so I think I understand your interests well - and you will be pleasantly surprised that Charleston has jhistoric aspects that will remind you of home.

I would love to help you and your wife with both your career and home pursuits.

I look forward to hearing from you!

This is a pretty common question that I get from clients that are moving to the Charleston area. While I don't believe that there have been any formal studies done, I believe that only about 25% of the people that live here either grew up here or are related to someone that did. ... more

Just had some friends move from New England to Myrtle Beach, SC area a couple of years ago and talk to them often. They love the area and the weather. RE prices have gone up quite a bit in the last 3 years on the coast but still very affordable. One of the complaints I've heard though is that most industry's don't pay very much in that area but if you're looking to start a business, that may not pertain to you. Good luck on whatever you decide. ... more
