So why should I pick Winterville/Greenville versus South Carolina where property taxes are much less?

We just went to Winterville this past week and really like it. Seems like south of Greenville is really booming.

I can't come up with a good reason to leave North Charleston SC mainly because of the property taxes.

Thanks.

Only one. A closer drive to VA to visit family. But overall I can't think of the pros to move to NC. Property taxes are much higher than SC. So we will have less income and will be fully retired in two years. And because of my Social Security and the wife's pension, we will be over the threshold for the exemption.

You're most likely not going to get a better tax situation in NC versus SC, but couldn't you find a similar tax structure in VA?

If your #1 reason for moving is to get near family in VA, why not move to VA?

Yes, I just found out about the threshold; so this is a big con to me. The closer drive really would be nice however we would have less spending income because of higher taxes. Phewy!

We came from Virginia but wanted a warmer climate. VA taxes are not cheap either.
