Beaufort, SC is a Surprisingly Romantic City

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 28, 2018

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCBeaufort, SC is famed for its stately mansions and cobblestone streets, as well as its fabulous lodging, cuisine and classic Southern charm, Charleston is clearly one of the world’s most romantic cities. But further south lies another historic city that in many ways, can be just as romantic yet with a remarkably slower pace than its larger and far more famous destination.

Second only to Charleston as the oldest city in South Carolina, Beaufort is also well known for its wealth of antebellum homes, along with so many other historical sites that its entire 304-acre central Historic District is both a National Historic Landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places. Contributing to the immeasurable charm of this Low Country destination are some of the most romantic bed and breakfasts in the country, such as Anchorage 1770, Cuthbert House Inn, the Rhett House Inn and the elegant Beaufort Inn.

In addition to romantic dining at such places as Saltus River Grill and Breakwater Restaurant and Bar, couples can enjoy activities like boat tours from the Downtown Marina and entertaining carriage ride across many important points of interest. Lastly, you may also be interested to know that many famous movies were partly filmed in Beaufort and its surrounding area and the impressive list includes “The Big Chill”, “The Great Santini”, “The Prince of Tides” and the most famous of all, “Forrest Gump”.

Reasons to Rent in Retirement

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 09, 2018

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCFor years, the standard plan for retirement was to pay off your mortgage and continue living in your family home, or perhaps sell that home and pay cash for a smaller home, possibly in a retirement community.

But that plan has changed in recent years, as some retirees have joined their millennial children and grandchildren in choosing to rent rather than buy. While their reasons vary, the trend indicates that renting is losing its stigma and that, for some older people, renting makes good economic sense.

Here are seven reasons to rent in retirement.

You want to try out a new area. Many people fantasize about moving to warm climates when they retire. But those places are big lifestyle changes for many, and some people discover that the land of mosquitoes and endless summer is not for them. Plus, it's hard to choose a neighborhood when you don't know the city. Renting gives you an opportunity to try on a new lifestyle and check out neighborhoods without committing.

You expect to move soon. If you sell the family house and expect to need assisted living within a few years, buying a home to live in for a short time may not make sense. Or perhaps you're planning to move closer to children in a few years, but you want to stay in your hometown a little longer. Renting makes it easier to move quickly.

You can't afford to own a home. The cost of the mortgage is just part of the cost of homeownership. Real estate taxes, condo or HOA fees and homeowners insurance are somewhat predictable, but the cost of repairs is a looming unknown. Those types of expenses require you to keep some cash in reserve. Houses are so expensive, and the expenses are unpredictable sometimes.

You want more freedom. You don't want to spend the rest of your life in one place, and you want to be free for adventure. That might mean long-term travel, living a few years near one child and then a few years near another, or maybe you would like to test out various cities where you could settle. In any of these scenarios, renting makes more sense. When you're renting, it gives you a lot of flexibility.

You want to tap the equity in your home. If your home is worth a lot of money but you have no access to cash for living expenses, selling the home and renting can be a good option for some, though you'll need to do the math and weigh this option versus a reverse mortgage.

You want to move into senior housing. Some older people, especially if they are single, may not like living alone but they may not need assisted living. One option is to rent an apartment in an independent living community, which provides meals, activities and maintenance. Buy-in communities also have these amenities, but a rental community is less of a commitment and may make more financial sense for some.

You can't get a mortgage. Since the foreclosure crisis, lenders have become much stricter about documenting income. Retirement income counts, but you may not have enough money for the home you want, especially if you don't have a lot of cash for a down payment. Buying becomes more difficult when you retire because lending standards are stricter.

South Carolina: Make Living Easy

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 01, 2018

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCThere's a place for everyone in the Palmetto State, and plenty to pique any area of interest

Living in South Carolina comes with dozens of advantages – a mild climate, an affordable cost of living and plenty of job opportunities, just to name a few. Residents enjoy an unparalleled quality of life that makes putting down roots in the Palmetto State an easy choice.

In addition, the state is filled with diverse cities and communities that cater to nearly every interest, which means there’s a perfect place for just about everyone.

Top Spots for All Ages and Stages of Life

Charleston is a favorite destination for millennials, thanks to its technology-driven, entrepreneurial economy, as well as its wide variety of nightlife and cuisine options. Also drawing millennials are Greenville and Rock Hill; formerly dominated by the textile industry, both cities now offer thriving downtowns and are within easy reach of many of the state’s top employers.

Finally, South Carolina is also a top choice for retirees, as it lays claim to places like Bluffton, Hilton Head Island and Myrtle Beach, each known for fun in the sun, excellent golf courses and plenty of natural beauty. Another great retirement destination is Beaufort, a charming town in the Lowcountry with a 304-acre National Historic District.

Always Something Fun to Do

The Palmetto State is known for its can’t-miss culinary scene, which includes an array of barbecue joints. Known to many as the birthplace of American barbecue, South Carolina is the only state in the U.S. that has four official barbecue sauces, including a mustard-based sauce that is unique to the state. A free South Carolina BBQ Trail Map with more than 220 family-friendly restaurants is available for those who wish to try every 'cue variety the state has to offer.

Additionally, South Carolina is home to several craft breweries, wineries and other beverage-makers, creating drinks like sweet tea and Blenheim Ginger Ale. As a result, the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism – also known as Discover South Carolina – recently created the free South Carolina Satisfy Your Thirst Tour Guide that maps out a beverage-centric excursion across the state and is available via a smartphone app and a downloadable map.

Eager to enjoy the great outdoors? You’re in luck. South Carolina has a seemingly endless range of outdoor opportunities, including challenging golf courses, pristine beaches, mountains and state parks.

One of the best attributes of South Carolina is the size of the state. One can experience the Lowcountry and in the same day travel to the Upstate and have a very different experience. From our numerous outdoor activities and offerings to our unique art scene, diverse culture, delicious cuisine and rich history, the state truly has something for everyone.
