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’s downtown you have to be careful. 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.
