Describe your ideal neighborhood or community. Where do you want to live and why? Are you relocating to the Upstate for your career? Are you a first-time homeowner? Are you downsizing or do you need more space? Do you want to live within walking distance to the downtown area or do you want to have a home in a gated community? How many bedrooms and bathrooms will you need? Is the school district a relevant factor? What style of home are you looking to purchase or build: ranch, colonial, modern industrial, etc.?
