Beaufort, SC, One of the Best Places To Retire In South Carolina

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 27, 2017

Ashton Pointe, Beaufort, SCWhen it’s time to put away your work shoes for good, there are no better places in the Palmetto State to spend your golden years than these.

South Carolina: land of beaches, lazy days, warm weather, golf, and, of course, the home state of jazz musician Dizzy Gillespie, the epitome of smooth, relaxing music. In short, South Carolina is a retiree’s dream. Obviously, some places in the state are going to be better for retiring than others.

How We Created This Ranking

We know you’ve worked hard, perhaps for most of your life; so now that it’s coming time to (finally!) retire, we’re taking the work out of it for you. We came up with five measurable criteria to pinpoint precisely which places in South Carolina would be the best for your every retirement need:

  • Cost of living (high)
  • Crime rate (low)
  • Weather (average summer temperature and air quality)• Ease of travel (distance to nearest international airport)
  • Retiree amenities per capita (healthcare, adult education, dining, shopping, libraries, arts & entertainment)

#7 Beaufort

After Charleston, Beaufort is the oldest city in South Carolina, permeating every part of life in this city with a feeling of charm, tradition, and historic character with its antebellum architecture. Apart from being just a treasure to behold, this city is a wonderful place to live in, particularly for retirees.

In fact, out of all of the places we looked at, Beaufort ranked third for its number of retiree amenities per capita, like the public library, the Habersham Marketplace, and so many delicious restaurants you’ll have dinner plans for weeks. Beaufort also ranked third for its warm summer temperatures and clean air score of 41, and ranked sixth for a cost of living score of 96.

Best States to Find a Job – Beaufort, SC

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 20, 2017

Ashton Pointe apartments, Beaufort, SCSome states are adding jobs much faster than others. CNBC knows, because we've been measuring job creation in all 50 states for 10 years in our annual America's Top States for Business study.

Job growth is a key metric in our Economy category, measuring employment increases over the previous 12 months based on seasonally adjusted nonfarm payroll numbers from the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. That means we've been measuring job growth since June of 2006. Past performance is no guarantee of future results, but these 10 states have been the best places to find a job over the last 10 years.

South Carolina didn't experience the overbuilding that many of its neighbors did during the housing boom, But the overall economic crisis still hit hard-and it hit the state earlier than most. That has made for easier comparisons as the recovery rumbled along, bit SC has also benefited from a surging health-care sector that continues to add jobs.

#10 South Carolina

2006-2016 Job Growth 8.28%
Net jobs added: 156.200
Key industries: Healthcare, manufacturing
10-year Tops States Economy Rank: No. 40

Ask These Questions Before You Buy – Beaufort, SC

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 13, 2017

Ashton Pointe, Beaufort, SCLandlady ruling your life? No pets allowed? Maybe it’s finally time to take the plunge and call the shots in your own space. But, there are important questions to ask before taking the leap into homeownership.

How long do you stay in one place? If you don't plan on living in the same home for at least five years, then owning is probably not the best choice. You’ll probably lose money in the long run.

And then, of course, there’s always money. How much do you make? Do you have job security? Have you built up savings for a down payment?

Maybe you’re thinking, "Hey! I can totally pay a mortgage. I pay less than that in rent!" But owning a home comes with a lot more than just a monthly payment and some utilities.

Property taxes alone are sure to hit the wallet hard. You calculate this annual cost by multiplying the assessed value of your home by the tax rate in your area. And don’t forget homeowners insurance and maintenance.

And this is AFTER you’ve paid your down payment and closing costs.

Renting may feel like throwing money away on something that’s not yours, but you’re not tied down. Once that lease is up, the sky's the limit. The world is your oyster... you know... something like that. So if the time and money are right, it may be just the moment for you to finally buy the house of your dreams - and have all the cats you want.

OR:

Are you looking to get out of the renting life and jump into homeownership? Sounds like a great idea - and would certainly impress your friends and family. But there are a slew of things any first-time homebuyer should know upfront. There are essential things to consider when you're looking to buying a home, from property taxes to closing costs.
