Whether newcomers are attracted to the beauty of our Southern countryside or our thriving economy and opportunities, the fact is Berkeley County has rapidly become the place many are choosing to call home.  In fact over 50% of the population who lives here also works here.

Land and water combined, Berkeley County is the largest county in South Carolina.  With over 1,200 square miles of beautiful landscape, a variety of both rural and suburban home options, year-round beautiful weather and friendly locals, it’s very easy for newcomers to find everything they are looking for in a quaint but progressive place to call home.

Employment opportunities in Berkeley remain plentiful, thanks to the many worldwide companies such as Google, DuPont and Alcoa. Homes are reasonably priced and the market is strong.  The 2010 median price of a house was $177,990, reflecting a 19% increase in sales and a 3% increase in prices compared to August 2009.
