Which area do you think is suffering more with jobs and housing market?

How about cost of living? I would guess Charleston has a higher cost of living?

I would think Charleston is a little higher but don't have exact numbers. My son lives there & it appears he thinks so too.

Thanks for the info. Charleston seems to be getting some new companies down there including Boeing and off shoots so I wasn't sure if job market improving.

I had lived in the Charleston area a good while in the past and I felt the cost of living was higher there but not sure if it were now closer to Greenville's.

I've heard that the housing market here in Greenville wasn't as affected by the economy as the Charleston area either. Just wondering what anyone else had heard.
