In Charleston, school is out for the summer and traffic is starting to get heavy downtown and on the beach thoroughfares. Both are common to the start of another summer season in the low country.  People all across the US are counting the days when they will leave the normal rituals of their commonplace lives to vacation in an area worthy of being named the No. 1 tourist destination by Conde Nast Traveler magazine. They will travel here to enjoy the beaches, the plantations, waterways, museums, restaurants, cobblestone streets and the other sights, sounds and atmosphere of historic Charleston and surrounding areas. They will find as countless others before them, no matter the length of the vacation, there will not be a lack of things to do, see and experience.

With all of this going for it, it is easy to understand why so many people want to move the Charleston area. A wise person told me early in my work career, that when looking at places to work, try to live where others go to vacation. Whether looking for an area to work, retire or something in between, it was good advice then, and it is good advice now.

The Charleston area has much to offer everyone. So much that it can be a little overwhelming. To help you; 1) understand the aspects and attributes of the Charleston area, 2) identify your needs and wants, and 3) find the home that meets your budget, you need a real estate professional. A real estate professional can be critical in helping you make the “right” purchasing decision.
