1. Save, Save, Save
Buying a home is one of the best purchases you can ever make. Make sure you have saved enough money for the costs involved.

All of the rumors you hear about mild seasons, low taxes, easy cost of living, and an active lifestyle are alive and well in the South. Especially in Aiken, SC!
I'm originally from Miami, FL aka South Jersey. I moved to Aiken just about 10 years ago and wouldn't dream of living anywhere else. After the culture shock, and I won't lie, I went through some painful learning curves, it became clear how one can really enjoy the day-to-day. My commute is short and sweet. People here are nice. The small city is quaint with cobblestone alleys, streetlamps, round-abouts, fountains, and gracious oaks. We have a ballet, a symphony, a playhouse, more restaurants than we should have, and the usual suspects for shopping.
Our economy is strong. While we naturally are graced with some pretty affluent people from around the world, we also have large national and international manufacturing companies hiring chemists, engineers ...
