A Place to Call Home Tour… Charleston’s Open House Weekend
This weekend the Post and Courier is sponsoring an Open House Tour featuring over 140 homes in the Lowcountry that range in price from $89,900 to $3.2 million. Every area of the Charleston Coast is represented with homes on the peninsula, the beaches, as far out as Moncks Corner and Hollywood and everywhere in between. The Post and Courier is even offering the opportunity to win $2500 toward a down payment simply by registering for a drawing at any home on the tour.
Several Dunes Properties agents are participating in the Tour this weekend. Kristin and Randy Walker are offering 61 Ashley Ave. (circa 1803), a beautiful 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath downtown home on one of the peninsula’s largest lots. This property even features a separate 2 bedroom, 1 bath Carriage house added in 1853. Significant updates have been made to this property, but many of the original, historic features remain. It is truly one of the finest homes currently for sale in Charleston, so stop in to check it out.
Jack Hurley’s home on tour is at 4124 Egret’s Pointe in Mt. Pleasant’s Charleston National golf community. This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath is built in the classic Charleston Single style in a secluded, but convenient neighborhood. Jack is offering an extra incentive for folks to come out and tour this home. If the winner of the Post and Courier’s giveaway is from his property, he’ll not only match the $2500 prize but he’ll throw in new carpeting and deduct one point from the purchase price. Way to go, Jack!
To view homes before driving out and touring, visit the newspaper’s Web site, www.postandcourier.com/hometour. There are videos of all the homes on the tour, and you can search by area, new, resale, condo/townhouse or luxury properties of $500,000 or higher. This is great way to see what’s out there, whether you are currently looking to buy or just thinking about it. With the new tax credit, the lowest mortgage rates in decades, conservative prices, and bountiful selection, there really is no better time to buy.
So stop by the website to browse the options and get out there today 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and 1-5 p.m. on Sunday. Don’t forget to drop in an entry form for the $2,500 down payment drawing. Official rules and regulations apply and will be posted at all houses. Register at any of the homes this weekend, but if you want a little something extra, register at Jack’s!
