Charleston Real Estate & Homes for Sale in South Carolina

Steeped in history, Charleston is commonly called a "living museum." The Charleston metropolitan area is located in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties, stretching from central to southern South Carolina and approximately 50 miles inland, with 90 miles of coastline. The entire area is a never-ending feast for the senses, with history serving as the main course.

Church bells toll the hour as the past unfolds around each and every corner. In no other place are the past and present more intertwined. Formal gardens magnify the beauty of stately, centuries-old homes. World-famous plantations and gardens offer visitors a fascinating glimpse into life during the antebellum era. The city's stunning downtown district has long been considered the "Cultural Capital of the South." But Charleston is also a modern city with all the amenities of a 21st century metropolitan area.

Centrally located along the Atlantic Coast, Charleston boasts a multi-billion-dollar tourism industry, one of the Southeast's most impressive medical hubs, and a well-established base of national and international manufacturers, as well as a large "high tech" military presence. Arts, recreational and cultural opportunities are abundant, including museums, music, dance and theater, as well as water sports, golf, hunting, fishing, horseback riding and more. A number of excellent universities and colleges are nearby, including The Citadel, The College of Charleston, Charleston School of Law, Charleston Southern University and the Medical University of South Carolina. The Charleston real estate market is diverse. Condominiums, townhouses and single-family homes and historic properties are available at reasonable prices, some with desirable waterfront locations.
