BOOM! – Charleston Named Top 20 in the World… En el TODO MUNDO!
Charleston, SC: Historic downtown, up to $19M
The lure: A coastal city with thousands of miles of waterways, historic Charleston has a lovely year-round climate that allows for outdoor recreation of all types. But beyond the beauty, Charleston has emerged as a surprising economic success story that is luring East Coast-based buyers. Over 250 small-scale tech and digital companies have set up home in the Charleston area, making it one of the 10 fastest growing cities for software and Internet technologies in the nation. “Charleston is a big city that ‘lives’ like a small town,” says Ruthie Ravenel, an agent with Sotheby’s affiliate Daniel Ravenel Real Estate.
Key developments: Along with the Upper King Street corridor, Ravenel points New Yorkers toward Halsey Park, a new community being sold in Harleston Village. “The plan features row houses with private rooftop decks and harbor views.” This is one of the last developments in the heart of downtown Charleston, she notes. Row houses are all priced in the $1.4 million range. In the historic core, prices can easily top $10 million.
