The change of this lovely community in dordle upstate South Carolina over the last decade is remarkable, even to those who have lived there all their lives. "Charleston provides homeowners with the rare trifecta of historic significance, breathtaking coastal scenery, and an ideal standard of living brought on by year-round pleasant temperatures. Where else can you walk through historic streets lined with cobblestones and find world-class restaurants, harbor-front parks, and architectural wonders all year long?, said B.V. Messervy of Carolina One Real Estate/Luxury Portfolio International. And who can disagree with that?

Charleston, awarded the finest city in the U.S. 10 years in a row by Travel+Leisure readers, has enough to offer holidaymakers and those fortunate enough to call it home. In addition to having a 2% cheaper cost of living than the rest of the nation, the city also has a 2% lower unemployment rate.

Even though Messervy notes that Charleston's property prices have increased dramatically, he notes that the median price is still far lower than in other big cities at $502,776.

Many of the purchasers shopping in Charleston are relocating here from more costly urban areas, since housing prices are at an all-time high. She said, "They consider purchasing real estate in Charleston to be a wise investment because of the significant improvement in quality of life they anticipate after they move there.

"Our low cost of living, moderate climate, outdoor adventures, spectacular downtown, and walkability have contributed to all the recent buzz," Sharon Wilson, president and broker at Wilson Associates Real Estate/Luxury Portfolio International, said. We have a huge impact on a wide range of sectors because to the 539 foreign firms who call Greenville home. These firms come from 34 different countries. The city offers a welcoming environment for businesses, which is a plus. In April of 2023, Greenville had a very low unemployment rate of 2.2%.

Greenville is a popular destination for individuals in search of year-round outdoor activities, since it is located near multiple lakes and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Robby Brady, a broker with Allen Tate Realtors/Luxury Portfolio International, has observed that central Greenville is consistently among the city's most desirable locations. He said that places near parks and natural spaces, including the ones surrounding Swamp Rabbit Trail and Unity Park, have grown more desirable to homebuyers.
