Charleston Placed on "11 Most Endangered Historic Places" - 06/16/11 04:06 PM
The National Trust for Historic Preservation has recently released its annual list of America’s 11 most endangered historic places and sadly Charleston has made the list. Charleston was placed on the list due to the “expanding cruise ship tourism could jeopardize the historic character of the city”. The increasing popularity of the “Fantasy” cruise has caused members of Charleston’s old quarter to file suit against Carnival Cruise lines. They cited how the 1,026 cabin has affected their community and how the local government has not enforced any rules mandating the behavior of visitors. The good news is that the city is (0 comments)

Charleston Real Estate Market vs. The Nation's - 06/15/11 02:12 PM
It’s no secret that right now the real estate market nation wide is at a low point, but what does the future hold for the market. Currently prices are at an all time low so why aren’t more people purchasing homes? With these prices you would think more buyers would be taking advantage of this but the harsh reality is that while they are cheap, so are paychecks. In 2011 it shows that 1st quarter prices have been the lowest since the market has taken a downward turn. Data shows that the U.S. National Home Price Index is down 4.2%, and (0 comments)

Dear Reader, Prices have still been dropping and the sales figures for the first half of this year show a 4.3% increase over the same period in 2010. On average we’re down about 25% in value since the peak of the market in 2006. Of course this percentage varies from neighborhood to neighborhood but it is a fairly accurate assessment of the Charleston market as a whole. I feel like we will be “bumping on the bottom” for the foreseeable future and you really have to keep a sharp eye on the market because if something good hits the market for (1 comments)
