First of all, if you’re not already familiar with the term lowcountry, you’re probably wondering what the heck it is. It’s the region along South Carolina's coast, originally known for its slave based agricultural wealth and subtropical climate. Today the Lowcountry is known for its historic cities, rich heritage and natural beauty.
The term lowcountry was coined as a way to differentiate the portion of the state below the fall line (Sandhills). The area above was names the Up Country. Each area is home to distinct cultural differences.
The popularity of Lowcountry real estate has steadily grown over the years. People from all over the country have gravitated toward the lowcountry, making it one of the most attractive real estate markets in America. In the last few years, Coastal South Carolina saw some of the fastest population growth in the nation.
