The Hammocks at Cane Bay: Best Places to Live in Summerville, SC

Finding the Best Place to Live in Summerville
When searching for a new place to call home, there are several key factors to consider. You want to find the best option but it can be hard to decide when there are more than just a couple choices. In an area like Summerville, SC, you will find a wide range of housing options and narrowing it down can be difficult. Here are some questions to ask to help narrow it down: 

1.  What is my budget?
This is one of the most important factors in choosing a new home. You may fall in love with a home you can’t afford and it is a terrible feeling to settle for something less expensive but with which you don’t feel that strong connection. Stick with a price range that will allow you some flexibility in case your life situation changes. You don’t want to be overwhelmed with a house payment but you should have enough space to enjoy life. When you find a price range, you’ll have more options. 

2.  What are my ‘must haves?’
Before you begin to house-hunt, jot down a few things that you feel are crucial to your housing needs. It could be something like at least 3 bedrooms, a large kitchen or a certain amount of square footage. Keep this list with you and try to be flexible on other things. Crescent Homes provides a great deal of choices with their semi-customizable homes in The Hammocks at Cane Bay so you may not even have to compromise on the small things. 

3.  What is my time frame?
Do you need to sell another house before moving? When will the new house be ready? These are serious questions that probably have little leeway and you need to have definite answers to find the perfect home. If you can’t move until your house sells, the house you look at today may be sold tomorrow. Plan according to what is happening in your life. 

4. Where do I need to be located?
From schools to your work commute, you need to decide which area of Summerville will be best suited to your needs. You may not mind a longer commute to be within the boundaries for a certain elementary school such as Cane Bay Elementary or Cane Bay Middle School.  A commute to downtown from The Hammocks at Cane Bay will range from 30-45 minutes depending on traffic but with so many employers in North Charleston, you may find a job much closer to home.

Try to stick to a list of what you must have in a new home and visit The Hammocks at Cane Bay when you decide to call Summerville home. You can choose from new homes in Charleston, SC that are move-in ready to start your life quickly in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.
