Yeah, we live in Chesapeake now. No thanks. We'll figure this out. How about school opinions? Most importantly, high school. My sister in law will be about that age. We want good schools all around, but for our kids we may do private school. Not sure yet.

If school quality is an issue, look at the Summerville area in Dorchester 2 school district.

Chesapeake, Va. is a lot nicer than Summerville, Ladson, Goose Creek, and just as nice as James Island. You could move to Va. Beach and it would be nicer than Charleston.
If you must move here, like the realtors said James Island is a nice place from the characteristics you are looking for. Just stay away from Camp & Fort Johnson intersection and a few other areas if you care to know , ask.

Yes, as previous posters said, you'd be looking further away from Charleston's Peninsula/beaches. Are you opposed to something that needs a little work or updating?

The more I read, the more I am considering something that needs some work. I would most likely need to use a 203k loan because of (probable) lack of reno funds. We are also considering the attached apartment as long as it has a large enough living space for both the mother and sister in laws. It's just a matter of convincing them that it would be the way to go to get everything we need and want. *enter property brothers*

203K loans are great - you can get everything under one loan and interest rates are only about .5% higher than whatever rate you'd qualify for otherwise. Sounds like a good option for you!
