There’s a lot of buzz going around about how much and how fast Charleston and the surrounding area are growing. It is true that we are growing at a rapid rate. The question is, however, are you ready?
There are a lot of numbers floating around about the number of people moving to the Tri-County area, which includes Charleston, Dorchester and Berkeley counties. Some will tell you 42 or 45 people per day are moving to our beautiful area.
According to the Charleston Regional Development Alliance, that number is actually 34 people a day. Some of the other numbers are probably based on the average number of daily births in the area, which is 11, plus the 34 that are actually moving here.
Regardless of the “actual” number the Charleston area is now the 24th fastest growing Metro Area in the United States. As of 2016, the population of the Charleston area metro was 761,155.
The area is booming. Those people that are moving here are looking for homes to buy. If you have lived here for a while you might be considering selling you house. If you are in either of those two situations, choosing a knowledgeable real estate professional is crucial, especially is this current market environment.
