Hanahan, SC Homes for Sale
Just north of North Charleston lies a quaint, vibrant town called Hanahan. This community of just north of 18,000 people features many of the conveniences that you would expect living closer to the downtown area, in a much more laid-back environment. Additionally, Hanahan has quite a few perks for families that make it an ideal place to live, work, and raise children.
Hanahan is so appealing to families for a variety of reasons - one of which is housing affordability. It's not uncommon to see decent-sized homes (1,500 square feet and above) between the $250k to $500k range. These homes fit within the conforming loan limits for conventional mortgages, and many cost less than the FHA limits. This fact means that finding a mortgage will be much more straightforward than in some of Charleston's other parts. If you currently own a place in a state like California or New York, you might find that you can buy one of these homes cash!
However, inexpensive properties aren't the only reason to pick a place. Hanahan has quality schools. Hanahan Middle School, for example, receives a 7/10 rating on Great Schools. Additionally, people feel safe in Hanahan, with crime rates that are approximately 40% less than the national average. Being close to North Charleston means that you're basically near all the action, too. Families can enjoy a fun day of skating at the Carolina Ice Palace, or the kids can burn off energy at the Flight Fit and Fun trampoline park.
After a day of fun, you'll likely be hungry. When it comes to restaurants, Hanahan has you covered. Eat at fantastic places like Dashi, a unique fusion of Asian and Latin cuisine that receives rave reviews. Or, if you're feeling more of a sports bar vibe, head to LG's By The Creek. The food there goes perfectly with any game!
