Relocating to South Carolina

April 30, 2021

Spring is in the air, and depending on where you live, you might have just made it out of another brutal winter season. If you’re tired of shoveling snow, salting your sidewalks and braving the bitter temperatures for months on end—South Carolina’s blue skies, year-round warm climate and southern hospitality are beckoning you! 

South Carolina has so many unique characteristics to enjoy. Whether you’re moving from the big city or a small town, you’ll find there’s so much to love about living in The Palmetto State. Here’s what to expect when moving to a Mungo Homes community for a new job, retirement or a simple change of scenery. 

More home for your money

Depending on where you’re moving from, you may find that you’ll get a lot more house for your money in South Carolina. Once you have an idea for your budget, we encourage you to browse the available homes in Mungo communities. Our advanced home search allows users to filter their journey by market, price range, square footage and availability. With a steady inventory of readily available homes, it won’t take long to find a large, spacious home on a well-maintained lot for an extremely fair price. 

Additionally, if you have a little more time to make the move and aren’t in a hurry, Mungo Homes offers the option to select a functional floor plan in your desired community and watch it be built from the ground up. 

No shortage of activities

While we want you to love the home you spend time in, we also want you to enjoy the unique activities, events and attractions that surround your new community. South Carolina has plenty of appealing ways to spend your time, no matter your age or activity level. 

Live a few miles from the beach in Charleston, Beaufort or Myrtle Beach. Be surrounded by lush forests in the foothills in Greenville, with mountains less than an hour away. Columbia provides the best of both worlds, with a sub-two-hour drive to both the beach and the mountains. Enjoy acclaimed art galleries, restaurants of every cuisine and any price point, historic museums and breathtaking, regional architecture in the cities we build in and the areas that surround them. If part of your retirement dream includes playing a round of golf at some of the country’s most acclaimed courses, you’ll be within driving distance of many of them—and with our warm and sunny climate, residents are able to play year-round. 

Mungo Homes builds in so many areas, each with its own unique experiences to offer residents. If you know what type of city you’re looking to move to, or need a little bit more information to make a decision, our New Home Advisors are happy to help you find the right place for you and your family. 

A change of pace

No matter what part of the country you’re moving from, South Carolina’s many towns and regions offer a variety of lifestyles that can fit the change of pace you’re seeking. And while Mungo neighborhoods will feel close-knit and friendly, you’re never far from big-city amenities or things to do. Whatever your reason for relocating, know that you’ll feel right at home in the towns we build in. 

Building a home with the best  

Finding the best place to retire can be hard—but you know what’s best for you and the details that matter in helping you live your best life. If you’re looking to make the move to South Carolina, let Mungo Homes guide you through the process. We’re here to answer any questions you might have and help you start off on the right foot in a new city, new state and new home. 


Jason was a great builder. If I ever build a house again, I would want him to be my builder. He is extremely detail oriented, always honest, and always willing to answer questions/help. When tropical hurricane/storm Irma was approaching (this was a few weeks after I moved in), he reached out to make sure I knew how to install my storm shutters and offered to stop by if I had questions.
