I've been emailing with a couple realtors. I'd prefer a new build. There are 3 bdrm one stories. But, not really any large 4 bdrm or 5 bdrms, 2000 sq ft +. I looked online researching builders in the area and no luck...

I thought Lexington taxes were high. My 14 Ram was nearly $900 and my wife's 13 Highlander was $820 in Lexington. The Ram is $380 and the Highlander is $355 in Aiken County.

You should be able to find a nice home in your range in Lexington. We have a new construction ranch in Aiken County that is 2500 sq. feet. There was a 2-story with same sq. footage that was $10k cheaper and the realtor, indeed, said that it was because it's more to build out than up.

Good luck on your move!

I think it also depends on where in Lexington county you live. It's going to be much higher in district 1 or 5, but you get wonderful schools in exchange.

Most new builds are two story which allows 4-5 bedroom homes on a smaller piece of land. Several new build neighborhoods (Mungo and McGuinn) off of Leaphart Rd in West Columbia.

I would say for a good safe town, great schools (no matter the district), reasonable new home prices then one cannot go wrong in Lexington.
