As a trusted home builder in the Charleston, SC area, Crescent Homes wanted you know how to be properly prepared for your impending move to the area with these tips:


Get a Lay of the Land
Doing a little preliminary research before making the final move to any destination, let alone Summerville, will help you acclimate to your new neighborhood. Do quick Google searches of popular thoroughfares, grocery stores, schools and even entertainment and nightlife spots to get a snapshot of the surrounding area.


Find Your Happy Place
The biggest mistake people make when moving to a new town or city is trying to bite off more than they can chew. Instead, try becoming an expert in your respective part of the city as opposed to becoming the town know-it-all. 


This allows you to really become intimate with your neck of the woods and truly appreciate whichever Summerville neighborhood you decided to move to. 


Do as The Romans Do
If you’re moving into an area that already has a network of well-established neighborhoods, instead of immediately trying to go against the grain as the “new neighbor”, get acquainted with what locals and long-time residents are doing. 


Become part of the HOA or local Rotary Club. Volunteer at a museum or help organize the next Flowertown Festival. The sooner you immerse yourself in the local ways of doing things, the better your overall experience will be. 


Summerville, SC is unique in that it accommodates a diverse combination of residents, across several demographics, who want a quiet, safe area to live away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
