The Impact of an Expired National Flood Insurance Program

The Charleston, South Carolina area is a great place to live or have a vacation home.  The weather is great, the beaches are fantastic, golf courses are abundant, there are many historical sites, the architecture is unbelievable, the dining is unbeatable, and the people are the friendliest in the country.  It is because of these reasons that I believe Charleston SC Real Estate is truly unique.  I look forward to helping you with any of your Charleston SC Real Estate needs in Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester counties. Today’s article is titled:

The Impact of an Expired National Flood Insurance Program

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) has run out of funding as of May 31, 2010.  As of today, Congress has not acted to extend the funding.

What this means for buyers trying to refinance an existing loan, or purchasing a home in a FEMA designated flood zone is that they cannot obtain flood insurance until the National Flood Insurance Program is again fully funded.  If a buyer is obtaining a mortgage the lender may not approve financing until flood insurance is obtained.  Thereby delaying the closing until flood insurance is obtained.  The inability to obtain flood insurance will put homebuyers across the nation in jeopardy of losing there homebuyer tax credit.  According to current guidelines you must close on, or before June 30, 2010 to qualify for the tax credit.  There has been some effort in congress to get the closing deadline extended but as of this date little progress has been made.  

For buyers who are currently purchasing or trying to refinance a loan located in a flood zone, you have the option to acquire private flood insurance, available through many insurance companies, but it is much more costly. 

As it stands now until Congress passes a bill to fund the National Flood Insurance Program, new policies cannot be written and existing policies cannot be renewed.  Homeowners are being encouraged to jup through the hoops to renew their policy because Congress approval of funding is inevitable.  When the National Flood Insurance Program is funded new policies and renewals will be go into effect retroactively.  If a flood strikes while an owner is waiting for a new policy, or and existing policy to be written a claim will be paid, but not until the National Flood Insurance Program is fully funded.  

I believe every citizen who is affected by a FEMA Designated Flood Zone should contact their Senators and Congressman immediately and urge them to resolve this issue. ACT NOW!!

H. R. Bill 5019, aka “Cash For Caulkers”

The Charleston, South Carolina area is a great place to live or have a vacation home.  The weather is great, the beaches are fantastic, golf courses are abundant, there are many historical sites, the architecture is unbelievable, the dining is unbeatable, and the people are the friendliest in the country.  It is because of these reasons that I believe Charleston SC Real Estate is truly unique.  I look forward to helping you with any of your Charleston SC Real Estate needs in Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester counties. Today’s article is titled:


H. R. Bill 5019, aka “Cash For Caulkers”


In May the House of Representatives passed H. R. 5019 officially titled as the Home Star Energy Retrofit Act of 2010 aka “Cash For Caulkers”.  The goal of  “Cash For Caulkers” is to create jobs, save energy, and lower families' energy bills. Home Star will restart the assembly lines at factories that manufacture energy efficiency technologies and will put construction workers back on the job installing these improvements in the homes of millions of American families.

This bill has not passed in the Senate but supporters believe it will do so this summer.  You can read the entire bill here.

This is great news for homeowners and contractors alike. The bill provisions $6 billion for energy-efficient or “green” retrofits. It is expected to fund renovations for 3 million families, create 168,000 new jobs and save consumers $9.2 billion on energy bills over the next 10 years.

In order to cash in on upcoming rebates, homeowners and contractors will need to do their homework. There are 13 types of retrofits eligible for funding. Each retrofit has unique eligibility requirements and set rebate amounts. You can read the full text here.

What is Home Star?

Home Star is designed to spur home energy retrofits by providing rebates to homeowners who install energy-saving products, such as insulation, windows, doors, and heating systems. Home Star includes two tracks to provide long and short-term benefits.

The Silver Star program will provide up-front rebates for the installation of specific energy-saving technologies, including insulation, duct sealing, windows and doors, air sealing, and water heaters. Homeowners will be able to receive up to $3,000 in rebates under Silver Star.

The Gold Star program rewards homeowners who conduct a comprehensive energy audit and implement a full complement of measures to reduce energy use throughout the home. Consumers will receive $3,000, or half the cost, for measures that reduce energy use by 20 percent, and can receive up to $8,000 when additional energy savings are achieved.

Why Home Star?

Home Star is expected to allow 3 million families to retrofit their homes to be more energy efficient. Consumers are predicted to save $9.2 billion on their energy bills over the next 10 years as a result of Home Star's energy efficiency investments. And, Home Star will create 168,000 new jobs here in the United States. Construction jobs cannot be outsourced and more than 90 percent of energy efficiency technologies are manufactured here in America.

Today’s article is titled:


Fort Moultrie Nature's Defense for Sullivan’s Island and Charleston


While now Fort Moultrie Monument is now a part of the National Park Service.  In 1776 it was Fort Moultrie was built as a first line of defense for Charleston Harbor and the city of Charleston as tensions against the British Fleet rose.

Fort Moultrie on sullivans Island, Charleston Homes For Sale

Daniel Cannon, a public servant and a carpenter by trade was charged with the responsibility to construct Fort Moultrie on Sullivan’s Island.  There was not enough time to import stone or make the thousands of bricks that would be needed so Cannon took advantage of the natural resources at hand and the material he was most familiar with wood, along with the abundant resource of sand.  The most common wood on the Island was the Palmetto tree which was long and straight with no limbs making them perfect for laying horizontally and stacking them vertically in rows.  The Palmetto tree’s wood is fibrous, absorbent, and spongy and would not shatter when struck with cannon balls as pine and oak wood will do.   The construction of Fort Moultrie was done in sections with each section being built as a box 16’ wide and 16” tall walls of Palmetto trees.  The box was filled with sand.  That depth of sand was impenetrable by any British artillery. 

While in reality the sand probably saved the day, the for the Palmetto Tree got all the credit as the South Carolina State Flag was born here, a flag that bore a crescent and a Palmetto Tree over Fort Moultrie.  This flag became known as a symbol for independence.

You can find additional information about Fort Moultrie here.

Charleston SC Beachfront-Oceanfront Communities: Wild Dunes

The Charleston, South Carolina area is a great place to live or have a vacation home.  The weather is great, the beaches are fantastic, golf courses are abundant, there are many historical sites, the architecture is unbelievable, the dining is unbeatable, and the people are the friendliest in the country.  It is because of these reasons that I believe Charleston SC Real Estate is truly unique.  I look forward to helping you with any of your Charleston SC Real Estate needs in Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester counties. Today’s article is titled:


Charleston SC Beachfront-Oceanfront Communities:  Wild Dunes

 

Charleston beachfront-oceanfront communities are a great place to visit on vacation or to make your permanent home.  I know, live on one.

Let’s begin by defining a Charleston SC beachfront-oceanfront community.  Charleston beachfront-oceanfront communities are both a home to Lowcountry residents and vacationing tourists.  Charleston SC beachfront-oceanfront communities have tourism or vacationing as a primary component of the local culture and economy.   Typically, the economy of a Charleston SC beachfront-oceanfront community is geared almost entirely towards catering to tourists.  The typical Charleston SC beachfront-oceanfront community has a combination of these feature; nice beaches, oceanfront luxury homes shops, luxury boutiques selling locally-themed souvenirs, motels, golf courses, tennis courts, and unique restaurants within their boundaries.   The Charleston SC beachfront-oceanfront series will include seven communities in the greater Charleston SC Real Estate area.  They are Edisto Beach, Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, Folly Beach, Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, and Wild Dunes.  We will look at the location relative to downtown Charleston, a brief history, and a current, but brief market analysis for each Charleston beachfront-oceanfront community. 

Wild Dunes

Wild Dunes is a 1,600 acre gated beachfront /oceanfront resort community on the northern end of the Isle of Palms Island.  Wild Dunes was Charleston’s first resort community and is situated about 25 minutes from downtown Charleston.  The area occupied by Wild Dunes Resort was originally the home of the Seewee Indians.  Once the European settlers drove the Seewee Indians away the area was largely uninhabited until the 19th century except for some Revolutionary War and Civil War skirmishes.  It was during the 19th century that this area became a summer haven for downtown Charleston residents trying to escape the heat.  Since that time the Isle of Palms and later Wild Dunes Resort has been desired vacation spot. 

Wild Dunes Resort’s development began in 1972 when Finch Properties purchased 1,600 acres on the north end of Isle of Palms and later that year sold it to the Sea Pines Company, which had designed and developed Hilton Head Island.  The initial phase focused on constructing a world class tennis facility and was initially named the Isle of Palms Beach and Racquet Club.  Soon after that Wild dunes constructed two world class golf courses.  The harbor Course, and the Wild Dunes Links Course are designed by Tom Fazio.  Shortly thereafter the name was changed to Wild Dunes Resort.   To this day Wild Dunes Resort has held world acclaim for both golf and tennis.  Wild Dunes Resort has been chosen as one of the top 500 hotels in the world by Travel and Leisure Magazine. 

During the past six months Wild Dunes has had 40 homes in MLS sold at an average price of $777,428.  See Charleston SC Real Estate for properties currently on the market in Wild Dunes.

Isle of Palms

The island's original inhabitants were the Seewee Native American tribe. Supposedly, they greeted the first English to arrive on the island by swimming out to their ships and escorting them back to the island.  During the American Civil War, the H.L. Hunley departed from Breach Inlet, between Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island.  In the late 19th century, local residents began using the island as a vacation spot. 

In 1898, visitors to Isle of Palms came by way of water or a single railroad bridge. Originally opened as a recreational area for privileged parties at beach homes, this semi-tropical retreat, bordered by beautiful beaches and a network of marsh creeks, has lost none of its original charm.

Large-scale residential development began when J.C. Long bought up most of the island and built low-cost housing for World War II veterans. In 1975, the Sea Pines Company (of Hilton Head Island fame) established the 900 acre development now known as The Wild Dunes Beach and Racquet Club.

The Isle of Palms offers every activity imaginable. Isle of Palms County Park offers beautiful ocean frontage with lifeguards on duty seasonally along a beachfront designated swimming area. There is also a beautiful family-oriented park located directly on the beach! The Isle of Palms is conveniently located just 12 miles from historic Charleston.

During the past six months Isle of Palms has had 82 homes in MLS sold at an average price of $904,952.  See Charleston SC Real Estate for properties currently on the market in Isle of Palms.

The Charleston, South Carolina area is a great place to live or have a vacation home.  The weather is great, the beaches are fantastic, golf courses are abundant, there are many historical sites, the architecture is unbelievable, the dining is unbeatable, and the people are the friendliest in the country.  It is because of these reasons that I believe Charleston SC Real Estate is truly unique.  I look forward to helping you with any of your Charleston SC Real Estate needs in Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester counties. Today’s article is titled:


Charleston SC Beachfront-Oceanfront Communities:  Sullivan’s Island


Charleston beachfront-oceanfront communities are a great place to visit on vacation or to make your permanent home.  I know, live on one.

Let’s begin by defining a Charleston SC beachfront-oceanfront community.  Charleston beachfront-oceanfront communities are both a home to Lowcountry residents and vacationing tourists.  Charleston SC beachfront-oceanfront communities have tourism or vacationing as a primary component of the local culture and economy.   Typically, the economy of a Charleston SC beachfront-oceanfront community is geared almost entirely towards catering to tourists.  The typical Charleston SC beachfront-oceanfront community has a combination of these feature; nice beaches, oceanfront luxury homes shops, luxury boutiques selling locally-themed souvenirs, motels, golf courses, tennis courts, and unique restaurants within their boundaries.   The Charleston SC beachfront-oceanfront series will include seven communities in the greater Charleston SC Real Estate area.  They are Edisto Beach, Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, Folly Beach, Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, and Wild Dunes.  We will look at the location relative to downtown Charleston, a brief history, and a current, but brief market analysis for each Charleston beachfront-oceanfront community. 

Sullivan’s Island

The island was first known as O'Sullivan's Island because of Captain Florence O'Sullivan, who was stationed here as a lighthouse keeper in the late seventeenth century. Sullivan's Island was the disembarkation port for over 40% of the slaves traded in the American Colonies, making it the largest slave port in North America. It is estimated that nearly half of all African Americans had ancestors that passed through Sullivan's Island.

On 28 June 1776, a makeshift log fort was held by colonial forces against an onslaught by the British under Cornwallis who attempted to enter Charleston harbor. The palmetto logs used in the construction of the fort proved to be remarkably spongy and deflected the cannon balls. The Battle of Fort Moultrie was commemorated by the addition of a white palmetto tree to the flag of South Carolina. The victory is celebrated and June 28 is known as Carolina Day.

The history of Sullivan’s Island has been dominated by Fort Moultrie, which, until its closure in the late 1940s, served as the base of command for the defense of the City of Charleston.

Today Sullivan’s Island is a thriving upscale casual beachfront community which prides itself in its laid-back style of living.  The beaches are wide and flat.  Surfing and wind-sailing are common on the island.  Sullivan’s Island is only a few minutes from Mount Pleasant and about 20 minutes from downtown Charleston making it easy to partake in all of the amenities and activities in the greater Charleston area. 

During the past six months Sullivan’s Island has had 8 homes in MLS sold at an average price of $1,424,561.  See Charleston SC Real Estate for properties currently on the market in Sullivan’s Island.

Folly Beach

The original inhabitants of Folly Beach were the Bohicket Indian tribe.  From the early 1600’s to the through the early 1800’s folly beach was a haven for Pirates and Outlaws.  Because of its remoteness it did not fall under the government of Charleston.  Folly Beach was an active Union site during the civil as the Union bombarded Fort Sumter and tried to capture Charleston. 

Folly Beach got its name from the first English settlers who first saw the Island dense mature tree line from the Atlantic Ocean when entering the Charleston Harbor.  “Folly” in an Old English word meaning a clump of trees or thicket”.

Today Folly Beach is a bustling 6.5 mile long island fronting the Atlantic Ocean and is known as the “Edge of America’.  Folly beach is home to Folly Beach County Park and the Folly Beach Fishing Pier.  There are nearly 6 miles of public beach and Folly Beach is known for the best surfing in the area.  Folly Beach is a well know vacationing destination.  Home styles include large elevated oceanfront homes, elevated single family homes, nice riverfront condos, and multi-family rental units.

Kiawah Island

Kiawah Island has ten miles of wide, flat, white sandy beaches.  But, the beach is only the beginning.  Kiawah Island has 10,000 acres which includes nearly 45 miles of waterfront highlands over looking lagoons, marshes, ponds, tidal creeks, and Kiawah River.  The centuries old maritime forest throughout Kiawah Island consists of tall pines, palm trees, magnolia trees, and ancient live oaks.  Although Kiawah Island has the feel of a secluded tropical island it is only 35 minutes from downtown Charleston. 

Kiawah Island has held true to its award winning master plan, which is based on a deep love of and commitment to the Island’s natural beauty and its wildlife.  This plan has allowed an extraordinary resort – residential community to develop which boasts 6 world class golf courses, a five star resort- The Sanctuary, excellent dining, and privately owned homes, cottages, and villas.  All of this is accomplished with minimal impact on the natural environment of Kiawah Island.

Seabrook Island

Seabrook Island is a barrier Island located southeast of Charleston about 35 minutes from downtown.  Seabrook Island’s original inhabitants were the Stono Indians.  British explorer Robert Stanford discovered Seabrook Island in 1684 and claimed if for the King of England, Charles II.  In 1816 William Seabrook of nearby Edisto Island bought the Island and it has been know as Seabrook Island since that time.  In the early 1900’s Seabrook Island was sold to a sportsman’s group for hunting, fishing, and recreation purposes.  Later the Episcopal Church rented land on Seabrook Island for a summer camp for underprivileged children.  The camp is still in operation and is know as Saint Christopher’s Camp and Conference Center.  In 1951 1,408 acres were given to the church.  In 1970 the Episcopal Church sold 1,100 acres to a private developer who planned and started Seabrook Island as we know it today.

Seabrook Island has 3.5 miles of beach on the Atlantic Ocean and another 1 mile of beach on the North Edisto River.  Seabrook is home to two golf courses, a new member’s clubhouse, a new fitness center, biking trails, an equestrian center, Bohicket Marina, the shops at Bohicket Marina, and fine dining such as Rosebank Farms CaféFreshfields Village, has many fine shops, restaurants, and events is adjacent to Seabrook Island.

Edisto Beach

Named after the Edisto Indian tribe, Edisto Beach is located on the southern tip of Edisto Island about 50 miles south of downtown Charleston.  Edisto Beach is one of the few beaches on the South Carolina coast that has escaped commercialization. As you follow scenic Hwy. 174 from Highway 17 South to Edisto Island, live oaks draped with spanish moss seem to create a tunnel over the road making first time visitors curious to see what awaits them. For many this moss draped road is where they begin to feel at home.

Edisto Beach today is a community small in both geography and population.  Most of homes in the community are the typical Lowcountry beach style homes.  Edisto Beach has many permanent residents and is well known as a favored vacation destination.  The beaches vary from rather flat to mildly sloped and frequently have many sea shells.  There is surfing, fishing, kayaking, and golf and camping at Edisto Beach.    

During the past six months Edisto Beach has had 22 homes sold at an average price of $359,268.   See Charleston SC Real Estate for properties currently on the market in Edisto Beach.

Radcliffeborough

Charleston’s Radcliffeborough neighborhood began as farmland purchased and surveyed by Thomas Radcliffe in 1786. Thomas’ estate and his widow, Lucretia continued to develop the borough after Thomas was lost at sea in 1806.  In 1811, the Third Episcopal Church was built on four lots donated by Mrs. Radcliffe for this purpose. St. Paul’s convenient local and grand appearance attracted rice planters from the neck to worship alongside homes built by merchants and mechanics, several free black families (from before the Civil War) as well as slaves living apart from their masters and after the war, newly freed slaves.

Today, Radcliffeborough is as racially and economically mixed as it was then but its boundaries have grown from its original eight blocks to span from King Street to Ashley Avenue and from Bee Street, to Calhoun. Its topography has changed as well and would seem incredibly different to Thomas Radcliffe. In his time and even up to 1846, Calhoun Street did not exist. The area that would eventually become Calhoun was a millpond and Comings Creek ran through the land where the Cathedral of St. Paul now stands.

During the past six months Charleston’s Radcliffeborough neighborhood had 8 homes sold at an average price of $512,038.  See Charleston SC Real Estate to search for homes.  View Radcliffeborough homes currently on the market here.

Radcliffeborough is bounded on the north side by the South side of Morris Street and one block to Bee Street, and on the south side by the North side of Calhoun Street.  The eastern boundary is the West side of King Street and the western boundary is the East side of Ashley Avenue.
