Rock Hill is the best place to raise kids in South Carolina for the second straight year according to Business Week magazine. Rock Hill is only 20 miles south of Charlotte, and has warm weather and some of the best public schools in the state. Rock Hill is also home to Winthrop University, a four-year liberal arts college that was ranked the eighth-best public university in the Southeast by U.S. News & World Report in 2006. Affordable, safe, and family-friendly are the key words to describe the criteria that was used to select Business Weeks’ picks for top cities in this year's report. The selections were limited to towns that have at least 45,000 residents and a median income of between $40,000 and $125,000. The data that were used included school performance, number of schools, house...

Hard to believe that we are in the holiday season, but ready or not here it is.  People are  decorating their homes, putting up the Christmas tree and thinking about all the gift giving they plan to do.  During this time of year shopping can quickly become a frustrating task, but make it fun and special to find the perfect gift for the people you are blessed to have in your life.  As I start thinking about the shopping I will do I plan this year to try and stay away from the hectic pace of a big city and enjoy the many local shopping opportunities that our area has to offer.  A couple of favorite places that will be part of my shopping destinations include the Millwood area, Baxter Village, Manchester, the Galleria and downtown Rock Hill.  Great shops that are unique and quaint and off...

When potential homeowners are looking to buy a property one factor that has been embedded in them is location, location, location. This is key and certainly an important factor that should be consider when purchasing a home or property. One of the reasons we chose Rock Hill, SC as our home is the close proximity to Charlotte, North Carolina  and all the amenities that come with a large city. If we drive to Uptown Charlotte it takes less than 30 minutes depending on traffic. Since the lightrail has opened we use this form of transportation more that driving all the way into Uptown. For just $3 for a roundtrip we park at I485 and South Boulevard and take the lightrail if we are going to a Carolina Panthers game, a Charlotte Bobcats game, the Blumenthal Theater for a show or even to some o...

Alright all you Winthrop Eagle fans get ready because basketball season is cranking up.  November 14 at 4:00pm will be the opening game for the men's basketball team at Winthrop University.  If you are looking for a great family activity that is extremely affordable then you have to experience the thrill of Winthrop basketball.  The games are always exciting and there is something for everyone.  Put on your Eagle wear and join the best fans in the world to cheer on this outstanding team of players.  I have to send a special Good Luck to George Valentine who is from Fayetteville, NC so you know we will pulling hard for him this year and hopefully he will have a great season and stay healthy.  Nothing like Winthrop basketball so if you haven't experienced it yet do so soon and for the di...

What a treat we experienced tonight.  We attended the fall concert of the Winthrop University Jazz Ensemble and what a tremendous group of talented individuals who will blow you away with their skill and passion for music.  The music selections were great and really showcased all of the musicians that made up the jazz ensemble.  It was evident that every musician in the group has a love for music and they enjoy the whole jazz experience.  The recital hall was packed and it was great to see so many students from the Northwestern Marching Band in attendance.  York County should be proud of the number of students from our area performing in this ensemble.  The concert was free and the caliber and quality of music performed tonight was absolutely incredible.  We can't wait for the spring c...

In today's economy it is important to know the market value of your home and this is a question we get almost every week.  Many of us would like to believe that we know what our home is "worth" and many potential sellers know what they want to sell their home for, but in most cases the perception of what a home is worth to the seller is not reality with today's market.  Investing in real estate is still a solid long term investment strategy, however, owners need accurate and reliable information at their fingertips to really understand and weather today's market conditions.   There are a number of outstanding websites that are free to people to go and receive this type of information.  Information truly is power so utilize these tools that are right at your fingertips.  If you have que...

In our current market, now is a good time to be looking at Rock Hill homes for sale.  Because buying a home will be one of your biggest financial decisions, seek the advise of others.  Many folks are in the market for a number of reasons.  There are a lot of factors to consider if you are buying a house for investment purposes.  Rental property can be a great long term investment strategy. Investors make up a small fraction of the market and most people buy a home to live in. There are many websites where you can learn about the areas. Most people want to have easy access to their job.  Short commute times and distance to work, play an important roll in the location for your new home.  Mileage to work is an important factor if transportation cost is important.  The Rock Hill area has g...

Recently we have listed three gorgeous patio homes in Augusta Place which is a community within the Laurel Creek subdivision. These new construction homes were built by O'Connell Signature Homes who is one of the premier builders in York County. Each of these homes has a unique floor-plan, however, they all share in the quality and beauty of the many features found throughout these homes such as granite counter-tops, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances and moldings throughout. The homes are spacious with an abundance of storage and quality construction throughout. As you walk in you can immediately tell that care, quality materials and experience went into each of these homes. One really unique feature of Augusta Place is that the HOA maintains the lawn and exterior of these ho...
