The Allure of Coastal Living Therapy
Do you dream of a lifestyle that finds you? Have you visited the coastal south and asked yourself ‘why not’ as you travel home to the north or west? Do you find the quintessential southern charm of a wrap-around porch and views of moss-covered ancient oaks captivating? Have a preference to live in an area rich in history, culture, and diversity rather than read about it? Southern Coastal Living means something different to everyone and Living Down South Realty can help.
Warmed by a subtropical climate, the Coastal South with its miles of pristine beaches, expansive and navigable marshes, maritime forests, and historic towns lined with oaks and palmettos are exactly as depicted in books, magazines and the movies. Boasting lush landscapes, natural attractions, and diverse culture, the Coastal South and Lowcountry also calls out to beach lovers, history buffs, outdoor enthusiasts, bird watchers, fishermen, golfers, artists & authors and those just retiring. Because the Coastal South offers so many options, living a coastal or lowcountry lifestyle can be attained at almost every price point, whether you are looking for a weekend escape, investment property, or a full-time residence.
Buying Coastal or Lowcountry Property
Purchasing coastal or lowcountry property is much different than purchasing an inland residential home. Other factors we’ll explore include primary residence, weekend getaway, or vacation rental? Proximity to ‘town?’ Work from home or retiring? Do you own or plan to purchase a boat? Will walking or jogging on the beach become a daily routine?
The elements of lifestyle have always been present in purchase decisions, but rarely discussed and cataloged with traditional coastal buying criteria such as home features, price, location, and community offerings. Thus, we begin by understanding your lifestyle elements and then explore possibilities. Our team will consult with you on your Lifestyle Essentials to help find the very best options in Coastal Living tailored specifically for you. So stop rehearsing. It’s time to live out the STORY.
