Berkeley County $198 million dollar school referendum passes and what does the mean for real estate values in the area?
Clements Ferry Road will receive a new high school and middle. Students from Daniel Island, Beresford Hall, St. Thomas Point, Martins Creek, and surrounding neighborhoods students will no longer have to be bused across the Don Holt Bridge for school. They will be able to stay close to home. For many home buyers this will open up the possibility of moving to this area. Real estate agents have faced this obstacle with buyers and I for one am very excited for this change. Where else can you buy a home on deep water on the Wando River, floating dock, half an acre for under $600,000.00. Lots with access to the Wando for as low as $30,000.00. Mini mansions galore in the beautiful Beresford Hall upon entering the gate you feel like you are a world away but the reality is fifteen minutes to downtown Charleston or to the beach. I think this area is definitely one to watch. We are already seeing homes go under contract that have been on the market for a while. Three bank owned lots that once sold for $250,000 have gone under contract in the last thirty days. Berkeley county taxes are known to be considerably less than Charleston or Dorchester County and they are only expected to rise $40.00 per $100,000 starting 2014. Give me a call or shoot me an email to learn more about the possibilities this area affords.
