Foxbank: Locating The Perfect Home in Moncks Corner

Before you begin the search for your new home in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, you may want to gather your thoughts and make a list of what is important to you and what you can do to make the process smoother in the long run. Here are 7 tips to steer you in the right direction:


  • Like your location. You can change a lot about the interior and exterior of the house but you can’t change the location. Don’t just think about the city address but think also about the spot in the neighborhood. Do you want to be on a corner, cul-de-sac or at the back end of the main road? These are variables that cannot be changed. 


  • Plan ahead.  Even if you decided to stop growing your family, there are situations where you may need more space. What if your children come home to stay for a while after college graduation to find a great job? What if your elderly parents need care in the future? You want your house to be available in those situations. 


  • Don’t overspend. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of buying a new home but remember your budget and stick to it.  Working with the sales team at Crescent Homes will guarantee you stay within your budget yet get the most house possible. 


  • Stick with it. Stay in your new home for at least several years. Ideally, you should plan on living in the house for 5-7 years, at least. Moving is a hassle and expense so it shouldn’t be something you do on a whim. 


  • Get what you like. Potential homeowners compromise on layouts, finishes and even home sizes when they really don’t have to. The homes in Foxbank Plantation come standard with many things other builders consider upgrades. Don’t settle for a home you sort of like but get the home you really like and can see yourself happy in for years to come. 


  • Know the area. Homes in the Lowcountry are holding their value and some are even seeing an increase in value but knowing the area is an important factor when buying a new home. The homes in a community like Foxbank Plantation have held steady and remain a strong market for buyers and resellers. While you may like a particular area, don’t forget the fact that you may need to sell the home down the road and you don’t need it to be a burden. 


  • Imagine your life in the home. Can you see yourself being happy in that home? Don’t look at it as merely an investment for only money reasons. By picturing yourself and your family living in harmony in that home, you are giving it value. Homeowners can get wrapped up in the resale value and the investment purposes but there is more to a new home than just money.


A new home can bring you and your family a great deal of joy and security for a lifetime.
