Travel Back in Time with These Lowcountry Film Locations from The Notebook

Mon, May 17th 2021 12:15 pm by Gracen Tilton Charleston SC Real Estate

From pastel-colored homes and hidden cobble stone streets to the picturesque landscapes along the natural marsh beds and flora and fauna of the sea islands, the Charleston region evokes romance around every corner. 

So, it’s no wonder that one of the most iconic love stories of all time was filmed here. Primarily shot in the Charleston area, the film adaptation of the best-selling novel “The Notebook” by Nicholas Sparks follows two young lovers, Allie and Noah, in the fictional town of Seabrook, South Carolina, in the 1940s.

Scattered throughout Charleston and the sea islands, these four filming locations from The Notebook offer an idyllic sampling of Lowcountry romance.

Why Waiting to Buy a Home Could Cost You a Small Fortune

Mon, May 10th 2021 5:07 pm by Gracen Tilton 1998 03 13 SC Real Estate

Many people are sitting on the fence trying to decide if now’s the time to buy a home. Some are renters who have a strong desire to become homeowners but are unsure if buying right now makes sense. Others may be homeowners who are realizing that their current home no longer fits their changing needs.

To determine if they should buy now or wait another year, they both need to ask two simple questions: Do I think home values will be higher a year from now? Do I think mortgage rates will be higher a year from now?
