Why sell real estate In Beaufort?

Beautiful Beaufort is situated in the southeasternmost area of South Carolina on picture-perfect Port Royal Island. A jewel of the Palmetto state, Beaufort is one of only a few U.S. towns selected to be designated a historic district by the National Trust For Historic Preservation. Its history is rooted in the antebellum south, with magnificent mansions, a distinguished cultural district, fantastic outdoor activities, and exquisite beaches. The city is a popular vacation destination and maintains its small-town appeal while offering a range of activities and attractions for everyone from singles to families to retirees. As a result, opulent Beaufort real estate is rich in cultural heritage and southern antiquity, from elegant waterfront properties to delightful dream homes close to downtown, and is always in demand.

A proud military tradition

Located close to Parris Island, Beaufort has a thriving military community with growing military bases, including the Marine Corps Airstation Beaufort and the Marine Corp Recruit Depot Parris Island. The U.S. Naval Hospital Beaufort is also located there. In addition, Beaufort is home to the Marine Corps Atlantic Coast fixed-wing fighter attack assets and is one of the U.S. military's most critical historical installations. With more than 700 Marines and over 600 civilians who are part of the 3,400 personnel that make up Marine Air Corp 31, the area is known as "Fightertown." Ready to deploy at a moment's notice, these brave individuals carry on Beaufort's proud military tradition that reaches far back into the depths of history. With many servicemen and women reaching retirement age or having families, the options for real estate buyers are always on the rise.

Tourism is flourishing

In addition to the fabulous boutiques and galleries that line the historic downtown, such as Bay Street Jewelers and the Beaufort Belle Co., avid shoppers flock to Lady's Island, just north of Beaufort. At Lady's Island, a set of beautiful bridges connect you to upscale shopping, antiques, and eclectic dining experiences. Back in Beaufort, once the sun goes down, there's a lively nightlife with sports bars and everything from one-of-a-kind burger joints like Fat Patties to unique eateries like Blacksheep to authentic Italian fine dining at Miramare.
