Sounds like a nice place, mellow and not that expensive for being so close to the coast.

Default I need your advice too!

I'm moving to St. Stephen, SC and I found a great deal on a home and some land...People are really laughing at me because of how small the town is and how there is nothing there...What is your opinion?

Who cares what other people think. Are you happy with your purchase? Are you ready to move?

Sorry if you took my reply as laughing. I was just wondering how you decided to move to St Stephen from Sacramento? When DH and I got married 22 yrs ago we moved about 20 miles from there and our doctor was in St Stephen so I am familiar with the area. My opinion, it's not an area I would want to be in after dark. There is lots of drug activity around in the area. Good luck with your move.

Default More about race relations?

My family is considering a move to SC this summer. We are upper-middle class African-Americans from the North. We are wondering how well we would fit in the communites surrounding Columbia. We lived in NC for a few years (about 5 years ago). We saw very few symbols of negative feelings toward minorities. Does anyone know about the state of race relations in SC? Are their towns or places that are stuck in the past?

I hope I am not offending anyone.

Thank you.

Default Thinking of relocationg from Detroit to South Carolina

Question? I am highly considering moving from Detroit to South Carolina and I have relatives in Columbia and Greenville and they each choose their city as the best to live. Which city would you choose between the two and why? I have a 21 year old in college and a 14 year in high school, I am a African American single female, associates degree, working on bachelors degree in sociology. Any feedback will greatly be appreciated

I haven't been to St. Stephen in years! The last time I was even remotely close to that area was when my father owned the little tire store in Jamestown.
Try not to let people discourage you from moving. Every little town in SC has it's negatives and positives.

Anyway, if anyone has a question about any of the cities in South Carolina, feel free to ask me and I'll try my best to answer.

Oh and ... I'm not a real estate agent or trying to make sales, just trying to help people out and share the information I know.

Hi, We're planning on purchasing a few acres of land within the next year, for retirement in about 10 yrs., in either SC foothills or NC foothills. In your opinion, which state would be a better place to retire to, as far as taxes, economy, low-crime, good healthcare, climate. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

Question Hoping to move to the Myrtle Beach area and need advice.

We will both be retired and are looking to move to the Myrtle Beach area. We are looking for a quiet, walk-able community, close to opportunities for personal growth, avoiding high traffic areas, and a short trip to the beach. Hoping to find a new home for less than $250,000, preferably less than $200,000. Need advice and comments about different areas that might be best suitable for our needs...away from rental areas. Different information you may know about the different home builders, etc. Feel free to comment to me directly. We would be very appreciative of local, knowledgeable advice. Not looking for a real estage agent.

Thanks.

Default Aiken Communities

Hi SC Native:

I appreciate you sharing your experiences...

My husband and I are thinking of semi-retiring to Aiken, SC. I say semi-retire as we will both be 58 when we move there (my youngest will be a freshman in college) and we would like to leave CT.

Aiken seems like a great town for our needs (smallish, transplants, golf, cultural events, etc).

However, I am confused by all of the communities Cedar Creek, Woodside Plantation, Grayloch, Houndslake.

Of course we will visit but I guess I am asking for some to give me a feel or an idea as to the differences.

Thanks so much
