There are three floor plans available from the 60-unit condo community. Set back from the thirteenth and fourteenth greens at Shadowmoss Golf Course, the community provides easy access to the course. It’s also surrounded by generous walking trails, which will invite neighbors out into the gorgeous Lowcountry setting.

Amenities include a swimming pool, fitness classes and workout facilities, a community garden shed, and an entertainment space. Canine residents will love their own dedicated dog park, complete with washing stations. The amenity center is planned for Phase 2.

South Carolina ranked ninth as best state to start home-staging business

Staging a home to appeal to a large pool of buyers is critical when it comes to getting the best sales price. Elizabeth Baker of ReMax of Charleston, who offers free staging for her clients, staged this home with a seaside-theme in mind. Photo/Elizabeth Baker.

According to a recent Fit Small Business report, South Carolina is among the top ten best states to start a real estate home staging company. Though virtual staging companies are on the rise, those virtual staging seem to fare better in large metro areas. South Carolina, coming in at No. 9 on their list, the report cites one of the reasons as the state having “one of the largest gains in homeownership rates in the country.”

Due to the influx of out-of-state buyers, low interest rates and what Fit Small Businesses' report cited as “South Carolina’s affordable housing,” we are experiencing low vacancy rates. That is most certainly the norm in the Lowcountry as inventory remains low. Their prediction is that establishing a staging company within a broker’s or agent’s real estate company will be well-positioned to serve those here and those flocking to the Lowcountry and the Upstate.

The top ten include:

1. North Carolina

2. Florida

3. Alabama

4. Illinois

5. Pennsylvania

6. Georgia

7. Missouri

8. Arizona

9. South Carolina

10. Kentucky
