The Charleston are's population has been burgeoning. Everyone knows it. It's partly due to the fact that our little city is so livable, but it is also due to the heavy influx of industry that we're currently seeing. I think new industry should be welcomed with open arms to strengthen our local communities. However, when you experience an influx of new residents, you will certainly see an affordable housing shortage. That has been the case here in Charleston recently. Unfortunately, house prices have skyrocketed and that has made many millennials unable to buy.

I know it isn't easy to buy a home, so we will follow the previous statements up with some information on how you CAN buy a home more easily than you think you can.

You've got to deal with fielding offers and negotiating contracts with the help of your Realtor. You've got to worry about inspections and appraisals. While all this is going on, you're preparing to move, as well. And that's not all! Luckily, there are a number of things you can do to increase the likelihood that you will sell your home quickly. Some of the most stressful moments are when the property is on the market with no offers coming in. This post explains 8 things that you can do as a seller to help sell your property quicker and with more success.
