With so many options for Downtown Charleston SC homes and also waterfront condos for salenew construction it is key to have the right agent before you purchase a new home. I have successfully helped homeowners in the Downtown Charleston SC area find homes of their dreams by meeting their every need. Downtown Charleston is one of the most historic and livable cities in the entire United States. Although most of downtown is considered “historic”, the most popular desired street with many historically significant homes for sale on Tradd St. The downtown Charleston real estate market consists primarily of 9 boroughs or neighborhoods with the three most expensive being French Quarter, South of Broad , Harleston Village and Harleston Green.

HOME SALES DATA & MORE INFO

Owning Historic HomesSales Data 29401Sales Data 29403
Not all properties in the downtown Charleston area are historic, but a large number are, probably 40%. Historic homes for sale in Charleston SC come with some must know rules prospective buyers should be aware of. Unlike in most cities where you can almost do what you want to your house after you buy it here in Charleston, downtown that is you may not. The city officials and preservation society of Charleston goes to great lengths to ensure the historic and architectural integrity remains intact because tourism is the largest driver of our economy and that’s why people come here. To enjoy the history. If you purchase in downtown and want to make changes or renovations you must get ARB (architectural review board) approval first, and I even mean for roof repairs in a lot of instances. Things like the color of the paint have historical significance so you can not even just paint your house without a permit.
