Metcalf Land Company helps buyers find land and more for sale in South Carolina. Why are people moving to South Carolina? Why do they choose (and like) this particular state?
There’s a good meme going around the Internet and it says, “Nobody moves North for retirement.” If you have ever lived in the Midwest or the Northeast, then you know how harsh winters can be there– cold, snowy, icy and endless gray days for months on end is not an ideal living situation, even for the hardiest people. The weather is perhaps the main reason northerners and midwesterners decide to find some land and move to South Carolina, which is known for its sunny, warm climate! You don’t have to shovel snow all winter in SC!
South Carolina is a pretty state with lots of natural beauty. There are parts of the state with some mountains, and there are parts where you’re living by the sea. With beautiful trees and lakes, SC is the kind of place where you can spend time outdoors much of the year and not have to wear a coat. People love that aspect of the state.
City-wise, South Carolina has cities with good universities, strong economies and affordable stores and restaurants. Charleston and Columbia are two popular SC cities for people of all ages. People especially like the state’s lower cost of living, with home prices cheaper than the national average.
South Carolina has amenities people need and want, like world-class hospitals, golf courses and beaches. Furthermore, there’s the whole “southern hospitality” thing, whereas people move and talk a little slower, enjoying everyday life rather than being obsessed with work. In South Carolina, it’s likely that new neighbors will welcome you with a pie and a chat. Friendliness is a good thing!
