We are relocating to Fort Mill SC from Jacksonville FL. Can anyone give us some feedback on the best area to purchase a home in the $450,000 range?

We have noticed homes in the following areas within our price range. Please provide feel free to comment on each area. We don't have alot of time to look around and any information you can give us will be greatly appreciated.
  • Tega Cay
  • Hagan Farm Road
  • Regent Park
  • Fort Mill

Thanks

You will have many options in your price range...what is important to you in a home? For example, size of home, bedrooms, bathrooms, acreage, schools, community amenities...that would help to give you advice.

None of them are bad...some people don't like Regent Park because there are some old eyesores nearby. It also depends where you will be working too.

We found the Regent Park area to be a little creepy, with the old eyesores that Groove mentioned. Depending on what you are looking for there are tons of new neighborhoods in the Fort Mill area. Baxter Village is very nice but the lots are very small. We relocated this summer to one of the newer Lakeshore developments on Tega Cay and are very happy with the area so far. Good Luck! I am sure you will find a lot to chose from.

BV has some new larger lots...but they are nex to power lines. I'm not saying that those are harmful as the jury is still out, but I'm not taking any chances.

No groove, the jury is IN on the question of whether high-voltage electric transmission lines are harmful to nearby residents. previously, there had been concern that electrostatic radiation might pose a cancer threat to those nearby, however, a review of many extensive scientific medical studies has shown no increase in any type of cancer risk forsuch residents. Of course, I would not suggest trying to climb any of the towers! On the other hand, some people appreciate the added open space power line easements add to neighborhoods---they often mena larger backyards....

What are these "eyesores" in/near Regent Park? My husband and I are considering a move into Regent Park from Matthews, NC and are trying to get a feel for the area.

Schools are important since I have a boy that will be entering high school however I understand that any school in YORK COUNTY is good. We would like to have a study and bonus room plus a three (3) car garage. Does Baxter Village have homes with three car garages in the new section?

Thanks

Just drive in there and you will see. It was the headquarters for Jim Bakker's PTL before it fell and housed an amusement park. Since the buildings in and around there (for the most part) haven't been maintained in a long time, you will see some things tha will make you feel like you are in a Stephen King novel.
