Ok guys, I thank all of you for your input so far, but we have decided to really research the area and the High School as we might be looking to do the move permanently a little bit sooner..We would rent 1st and get to the know Area as we have bought before renting before and honestly will never do that again...

With that being said, I am hearing such wonderful things about Mt Pleasant and we would like to drive around the area however not sure where to go?

Newer Neighborhoods/New Construction is there one area in Mt Pleasant over another?

Do they attend the same High School?

Thank You

So much has been posted about Mt. Pleasant on here. You might want to search "Mt. P" or "Mt. Pleasant" on this board to see previous posts on Mt. Pleasant neighborhoods and the high schools.

We are moving to Carolina Park.. I think that is newest development.... The High School is one of the top rated in the country..

Good Luck researching!

There is plenty of new construction in MTP. The only downside might be if you have to move on in a few years it can be tough selling when one can buy new in the same neighborhood. For this reason you might look at some of the developed neighborhoods that are not that old but no have more construction in them. The resale might be more stable/profitable.

Also get used to and read up on Home Owner Associations, HOA's.

You will love MTP.

Thank you we were originally looking for somewhere to plant roots when our daughter graduated HS however things might change..lol and we might decide to move a little earlier than we originally planned...we just want to get a feel for the area so to speak, Because we eventually want to do an adult 55 but we have 9 years left before we can do that and we will be 50 in 4 years when our daughter graduates HS, so we had a short term plan to rent for summers and breaks etc, and then when we were ready and got the feel of where we wanted to be since at that point our daughter might be attending College of Charleston we wouldn't need a family neighborhood so to speak since our oldest will be finished with College and onto his Masters Program at that point...

thank you and yes I wouldnt build in a development if I was planning on selling in 5 years as it would be hard to compete with the builder at that point..

Since I live near Town Centre, I like to take people down IOP connector, turn right on 703, go past breach inlet, keep going and you will go past Shem Creek, turn right on Houston Northcutt, go straight across rte 17 to Mathis Ferry (it changes from Houston Northcutt to Mathis Ferry when you cross 17), go a few miles and turn left on Whipple, go to the end and turn right on Longpoint, you go past Boone Hall and Charles Pinkney National Historical site, go to the end and go right on 17 to end up back at Town Centre.c

You get to drive past the water, over a few small bridges, and go down roads where the oaks create a canopy over the road. It is really pretty. You could stop in at Charles Pinckney National Historical site (it is free) and see the big beautiful magnolia tree.
