Condos in Charleston: A Low-Maintenance Alternative

Buying a single-family home in historic downtown Charleston may be beyond your means, but buying a condo in a converted heritage building may not be – and may appreciate above and beyond its initial value because of its prime location.  There are significant advantages of owning a Charleston condo that is close to work, recreational opportunities, and/or amenities.  You can save on gas and get more exercise by walking/cycling where you need to go.

If you’re looking for a place to call home that doesn’t require much in the way of maintenance, a Charleston condo or townhouse is usually the way to go, as most complexes take care of maintenance and repair through the building fund set aside for such things.  A well-run complex will have specific monies allocated for repair/replacement of the various parts of the building and maintenance of the building and any amenities featured in the complex.

Condo amenities can range from a group meeting room or clubhouse to tennis courts, swimming pools and fitness facilities.  Well-maintained facilities can save you hundreds of dollars a year in gym and pool membership fees.  There are also advantages to having them right outside your door, eliminating the time you would spend in commuting.

Buying a Charleston condo isn’t the same as buying a Charleston single-family home.  A condo is shared ownership among the people investing in the complex.  You should carefully inspect the complex’s CC&Rs (covenants, conditions and restrictions) to make sure that you can abide by the rules.  A thorough inspection of the building and your prospective home is another important step.  Ask to see the budget for the complex and sit in on a meeting or two of the condo board.  Chat up some of the residents and ask their opinion about living there.


Finding the Right Condo in Charleston

Fortunately, we have an abundance of condos in Charleston due to the limited space to continue to build single family homes close to downtown Charleston. So when thinking of buying a condo in Charleston, the main thought I have is: what is your purpose? Is location the first thought that comes to mind, or is it lifestyle? If you're retiring in Charleston, then you want to consider lifestyle as well as other folks that you will be surrounded by.


Retiring and Looking for a Condo

Do you want to live in The Tides, which are high-end condos in Mount Pleasant, just off the Ravenel Bridge to Downtown? Or are you a beach-goer and want to live along the Atlantic Ocean on Isle of Palms or Folly Beach? Others just want to avoid having to drive altogether and walk to anywhere they want to be, downtown. Wherever your spot, please ask me about the pros and cons of each location. Which area has the most traffic? What vibe does each island have? What are the 'safest' areas downtown?


MUSC or College of Charleston Condos

Planning to take up residency in Charleston for MUSC? Parents or students- how about a condo close enough to the College of Charleston, that is safe, where you can walk to anywhere you want to be? How is Rutledge Avenue? What about King Street or Calhoun? All of these areas have little pockets of differences to what exactly you're looking for. Finding the right condo is key! Fortunately, you need for me to run the numbers and show you how buying a condo for 2 years, 4 years, can be quite the profitable circumstance after you sell. Why not purchase a place for 4 years, have 1 or a few other roommates help pay the mortgage every month, and then sell for a profit by the time you sell.I've had parents and students do this time and time again- and it truly is the best investment advice.
