For this series, I am just going to take a look at what is available on the Charleston Peninsula. Yes, I know you can do a search on your own but wouldn’t you agree that sometimes it helps to have the inside perspective? While at first glance, $200,000 seems expensive for what you get, consider the significant savings over time in transportation costs. As a matter of fact, did you know Wagener Terrace is one of the entire metro area’s most affordable neighborhoods when you factor that in?
So here’s what $200,000 gets you in Charleston:
A teeny one-bedroom or studio apartment below the Crosstown.
