Greetings:

My wife and I are coping with the dreaded "middle age." We still have plenty of productive years ahead. Unfortunately, 50 is already visible and the retirement is looming on the far horizon. Over the last few years, we have been considering various long term retirement options. We live in Georgia and often visit Charleston and the surrounding beaches. After our last trip, we decided to look at the area a bit closer

Our next visit (a brief shopping outing) is planned for Labor Day weekend. I'm looking for a patient, knowledgeable, local, non-pushy real estate agent from an established agency with verifiable references. We are mostly interested in the peninsula and close surroundings. I'm not looking for an immediate buy (though for the right price and at a perfect location I most certainly can.) At this point, I would like an overview of available options in our price range, introduction to various neighborhoods, and a visit to a few representative properties.

I would greatly appreciate any recommendation especially from other members contemplating retiring in Charleston

Sincerely,

Unfortunately, my original post failed to generate any interest. Therefore, I will clarify our needs. We would like to retire in Charleston. We are interested in buying property that can be rented for the next 10-15 years. Our budget is around 350K.

Your price range leaves you open to any area in Charleston. I specialize in Mount Pleasant, however, I have a team and many of my Realtors live in Summerville and other areas. There are several beautiful one story homes (perfect for retirement) in Mount Pleasant that are well in your price range and the need for rentals right now in this area make it a great investment. Because of Mount Pleasant's excellent schools, location (closeness to beach and downtown) and amenities it is a very desirable location.

Beachme: You have a PM.

I would also like to talk with an agent specializing in the peninsula.

Thanks!
