Charleston SC Real Estate Blog : Editisto Island, A Great Place to Live

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 that Charleston SC Homes are truly unique.  I look forward to helping you with any of your here at Charleston SC Homes For Sale we look forward to meeting all your real estate needs in Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester counties. Today’s article is titled:


Charleston SC Real Estate Blog :  Editisto Island, A Great Place to Live


Time after time, visitors come to Edisto Island and wonder what it would be like to actually live in South Carolina's best kept secret.

Not many people get the chance to call Edisto Island or the town of Edisto Beach home. Just less than 3,000 people live on the island. Some are retirees, some are families who run some of the local businesses, and some are descendants of the island's first residents.  Some live in beach cottages or simple places tucked away in the maritime forest; others live in gated communities or right off the one road that takes visitors and residents to and from the island. No matter where one lives on Edisto Island, it's never too far from all the island has to offer.

Any coastal town is almost surely to attract people who love the ocean. Whether it's boating, fishing, crabbing, swimming, or merely walking in the surf, Edisto's climate allows for almost year-round fun on the water.  There's nothing quite like coming home after a long day at work and going for a walk on the beach or relaxing out on the water. Edisto is an outdoorsy place that features walking trails in the forest, a bike path, driving range, golf course, and several areas for fishing, bird watching, and hunting.

While island life tends to be carried out with a slow and leisurely pace, it's not for those who are into the hustle and bustle of city life. To begin with, there is no hustle and bustle on Edisto. After all, there are no night clubs, no movie theaters, no bowling alleys – there isn't even a stop light anywhere on the island.
There's a grocery store, hardware store, general store, two service stations, handful of gift shops and galleries, restaurants, a video rental/ice cream store, two libraries, several churches, a museum, and a state park.

There is a strong sense of community on Edisto, which can be seen in the number of organizations that exist for those interested in the arts, caring for the environment, and giving back to the community.  Like any small town, Edisto locals are close-knit and tend to care for each other. This includes the youngest residents.
While much of the population is beyond school age, there are several children that call Edisto home. These children attend school at what is locally known as "The Beach School," which is the elementary school that is a part of the Colleton County school district or Jane Edwards Elementary School, which is a part of the Charleston County School District. Students in grades eight and up are bussed to school in Walterboro or are driven privately to schools in Charleston.

Sometimes the seclusion offered by Edisto can be somewhat of an inconvenience, although often times it is the seclusion that makes Edisto so appealing. After all, it's just a 45-minute drive from Charleston and a 90-minute drive to Savannah, Georgia. This provides residents and visitors with the benefits of living a simple life by the beach and proximity to all that a city like Charleston has to offer.

To really know what it is like to live on Edisto Island is to actually experience it. Once that happens, you'll know what it's like to live on the best place on Earth.

Are You Thinking of Living in Kiawah, SC?

Are You Thinking of Living in Kiawah, SC?

Dec 29 |00:00 

Realtor Thursday

A conversation with “Carolina Joe” Idleman, Realtor with AgentOwned Realty Charleston Group, Charleston South Carolina.
 
Kiawah Island is a barrier island along the southern Atlantic coast with ten miles of a wide, flat, sandy beach.  With an average of 207 sunny days, Kiawah Island has a semitropical climate in which the average January temperature is 48 degrees and the average July temperature is 88 degrees.  This island encompasses 10,000 acres, including nearly 45 miles of waterfront highlands overlooking lagoons, marshes, ponds, tidal creeks, the Kiawah River, and the Atlantic Ocean.  The centuries old maritime forest throughout Kiawah Island consists of pines, palms, magnolias, and ancient live oaks.

The People
The town of Kiawah Island was incorporated in 1989 and currently has approximately 1,129 full time residents.  The median age is 65 and nearly 75% of the property owners have a college degree.  The overwhelming majority of the homes on Kiawah Island are second homes.

Going Green
Kiawah Island has held true to the developer’s award winning master plan, which is based on a commitment to the island’s natural beauty and wildlife.  Kiawah Island has been thinking green from its inception and encourages all possible forms of recycling from its employees, residents, vendors, and home construction contractors.   This extraordinary resort/residential community boasts five world class golf courses, a five star resort–The Sanctuary, excellent dining, and privately owned homes, cottages, and villas.  The U.S. Open PGA Golf Tournament will be held at the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island in August 2012.

Our Town
Although Kiawah Island has the feel of a secluded tropical island, it is only 35 minutes from downtown Charleston, South Carolina, which is located in the heart of South Carolina’s lowcountry and has a population of approximately 250,000.  Charleston was one of the largest and wealthiest cities in colonial America due to the agricultural production of rice, cotton, tobacco and indigo.  Charleston, recently named #1 travel destination in Conde Nast Travel magazine, is famous for its historical attractions, arts and cultural events, and fine dining.

Economy and Prices
Homes sales on Kiawah Island have begun to increase this year after three years of decline and the number of homes on the market has significantly decreased.  While prices have continued to slowly decrease, it appears that that this price decline is stabilizing.  With interest rates at historical lows, this is an excellent time to purchase your primary or vacation home on Kiawah Island.

Bio
Visit Kiawah Island and you might make it your home–I did.  The 20+ miles of bike paths, wide sandy beaches, natural environment, and fishing on the surf and tidal creeks lured me to this lovely southern island.  Visit my websites to learn more about Kiawah Island, the process of buying a home, financing, and other helpful information about the Charleston, South Carolina area.  Please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to assist you in your real estate needs on Kiawah Island or the Charleston area.
