Ridgewalk Cottages

If it’s within your plan to buy a home, one of the most difficult decisions is the location. While many people choose to buy a home in areas where they’ve lived for years and made friends and family, there is that time when you just want to buy a home in the most ideal place for your personal preferences.

Ridgewalk Cottages is one of Rosewood Communities newest locations that is currently attracting many home buyers. For some people, such a high demand in a given location is nothing but a new phenomenon triggered by good quality and low prices.  Even though that’s true about Ridgewalk Cottages, there is a lot more.  Why would one say so? The area is a charming location that has grown over time to host a vibrant community of people and a constantly improving inventory of homes that fit almost every group of people. Think of a family person, and that's taken care of. Whether single, a retiree, a professional or just a take it easy individual looking for a regular getaway, Ridgewalk Cottages fit the bill. 

The homes in Ridgewalk Cottages start at $299,900, which is quite affordable, considering the value that comes with it. These cottages will sit on a meadow surrounded by mature, beautiful trees that demonstrate, and of course deliver, tranquility and life. Their proximity to Five Forks on Anderson Ridge Road near Batesville Rd. is over the more the reason why you should “grab” yourself a home in this area. Why would one even think of mentioning Five Forks? The reasons are pretty obvious, with one of them being the variety of home designs and the beautiful community that define it. The area boasts of an attractive downtown, a very strong economy and an amazing inventory of arts and culture.

Buy a home in Ridgewalk Cottages and you’ll live to cherish your decision.

Butler Parc - Mauldin, SC

Butler Parc, a new community for Rosewood, is located in Mauldin on Pinecrest Drive. We know that when you are looking to buy a home it is going to be the most exciting moment for you and probably the most serious financial commitment you are going to make.

One of the first things to consider is the location of the home. It’s important to a have a home in an area that’s not quite developed now, but, at least, one that has potential for future development based on plans for major projects that would open up the area in later years or because of their proximity to a developing area. There are many advantages for making such a choice, including cutting down on costs.

One such area can be found in Mauldin, South Carolina. There’s multimillion-dollar development off Interstate 385 in Mauldin that already secured a tenant, and as the project continues to take shape, there is likely to be another major project on the way. Additionally, this is an area that boasts of huge development potential and one that would soon be attracting big investors.

Jackson Marketing will be moving into the space that was formerly occupied by Coca-Cola Bottling Co. The space is in a building off Holland Road, behind the Samsung Electronics America office. Currently there are renovations going on there to create new offices.

Going by the proposals by Van Broad, the Mauldin Community Development Director, the population of the city could increase by up to 25 percent, from the current 25,000 residents to nearly 30,000 in the near future.

The city has already annexed 89 acres around Forrester Drive to the north of town for a residential development and is planning to annex another 140 acres to the west on West Butler/Mauldin Road for the same purpose.

Many residential developers are moving towards Mauldin because the Land Development Regulations recently passed by Greenville County have added 3 to 4 months to the process of development which leads to delays that are not cost effective.

In Mauldin, homes and stores would exist in a shared building or side by side, and the storefronts would extend right up to sidewalks. Developers will have an incentive to build structures with articulated facades and peaked roofs; so, be on the lookout, Mauldin will attract a lot of private investors!

Greenville, SC - A True Gem

Choosing a place to buy a home is a decision you’re most probably going to critically think through before dropping the hammer. A lot of information is out there about why you should buy a home here or there, making it more confusing for potential home-owners.

Take, for example, the high traffic heading to Greenville, South Carolina. Right out of the box, you’re most probably in a position to name a few reasons why this is so, and why home-owners are also not left out.

But how do you separate facts from fiction? A direct answer is, of course, to get an insider’s view.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at some of the most fascinating things about Greenville, from an insider’s view, and the reason why it’s one of the best places to buy a home.

Well, most of us, hopefully, you too, want to have a home in a place where one can dine outside once in a while without having to pay too much to enjoy a delicious meal. Greenville has that and more. Greenville’s Lazy Goat is one such eatery. This is a Mediterranean-themed restaurant offering global cuisines, and it’s one of the most recommended restaurants by the locals. In addition to this, you’re spoilt for choice with over 100 restaurants off the main street.

Besides the amazing places to eat, Greenville also boasts of some picturesque locations. Consider the breathe-taking Reedy River Falls that attract thousands from different locations every year. Gazing upon the falls while crossing the Liberty Bridge isn’t one of those experiences you take for granted, literally; even the locals still find it satisfying. If you’re someone who enjoys taking a walk during those slow days or when you want to enjoy a time with your family, taking a family stroll down to Falls Park, a favorite of almost every person in Greenville, can prove to be a perfect pass-time.

When you’re talking about a home, you’re talking about comfort, right? If you’re a family person, you’ll love Greenville for family gathering spots such as the Swamp Rabbit Café and Grocery. This is where you get the super fresh foods and a playground that children can’t get enough of.

You can talk about food, parks and all, but when you mention mice in Greenville then you’ll see smiles of people’s faces. Along the celebrated Main Street, there are nine bronze mice that fascinate everybody. These permanent residents of the Main Street were part of a high school project by Jim Ryan, but sculptor Zan Wells is celebrated for bringing them to life. What makes them so interesting is the fun kids of all ages get from having to use clues to hunt for them.

There is so much to explore, discover and enjoy in Greenville – an excellent place to proudly call home.

Why rent when you can own?

Whether it’s cheaper to buy or rent a home is a debate that has been ongoing for years. Many people are into rentals because this option requires low upfront investment, at least in most cases. Comparatively, however, it’s much better to own a home than rent one.

Besides the fear of huge initial investment, some have the desire to own a home but lack the much-needed information about home-ownership. This lot still believes that one needs to raise a huge amount of money before even thinking of owning a home.

But things have changed. Now you can own a home through a process that, more or less, works like a rental. The beauty of this is, unlike in rentals, the amount you pay in installments gives you some right to the home.

Surely, why simply pay rent (some say throw away money) when you can “pay rent” and eventually own the home?

Below are more reasons why you should consider owning a home:

1. Freedom to Modify Your Home

If you’re living in your own home, you have the freedom to modify its looks to give you the desired feel without worrying about a landlord giving you trouble. You can repaint the color of the roof, plant a Cherry Blossom tree, own a dog, and more.

2. Appreciation in Value

Those who own a home have the benefit of the value of their home appreciating. In rentals, however, if the value appreciates, most landlords would adjust the rates so that you pay a higher rental rate.

3. Mortgage Rate Remains Flat As Rent Rises

If you choose to pay for your home through a mortgage, you’re assured that the agreed mortgage would remain the same regardless of the market dynamics. On the other hand, however, rent can be adjusted over a period of time, something that can be quite inconveniencing.

4. Owning a Home Gives You Peace of Mind

One of the main challenges that come with renting a home is the fear of a landlord kicking you out when you’re undergoing financial uncertainty and you’re, therefore, not able to keep up with timely rent payments.

There is no better time to own a home than now when landlords are raising rental rates to alarming levels.
