Charleston – South Carolina Low Country Travel Guide

Real Estate Tips:
One way to diversify your investment portfolio is through real estate. Although real estate might not have the glitz stock market investing, it is usually a solid core investment part of a portfolio. Often, real estate will hold its value when the market takes a downward turn, thereby; buffering any market loss. Investing in real estate is one way to earn a return on your money as long as you choose your property wisely and purchase at a fair price. You can purchase a home and sell it when it increases in value. You can also purchase rental properties that provide you with an income, although you must deal with the headaches of being a landlord. Investing in real estate investment trusts (REITs) is another way to invest in real estate without having to actually own a physical property.

    10 thoughts on “Charleston – South Carolina Low Country Travel Guide

    1. You didn't mention one of the most important facts. Charleston is where the Ashley and Cooper rivers merge to form the Atlantic Ocean. Local joke poking fun at how proud the residents are.

    2. This was excellent, feels like Rorschach is narrating it, but very well done.

    3. Great informative video! One of the best travel guide videos I've seen on Youtube. Keep up the great work!
