Review of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

Expensive to live here
Star Rating - 9/30/2013
Wages are low especially for professionals. Employers know you want to live near the beach so they don't pay well. You'll do better in Atlanta or Charlotte. You may hear about companies like Blackbaud but they have a very high turnover. Electricity is super high & it is super hot here so you will use a lot.
Housing is expensive plus you will pay much more for flood & homeowners insurances here because of our coastal area. Rentals are in short supply and are expensive. Want to be close to downtown or beaches, expect to pay a whole lot more.
New car prices are high. You will need to go to Charlotte to get a competitive price. Flying to and from Charleston airport is high.
When you look up cost of living, it generally brings up North Charleston area which is a whole lot less than Mount Pleasant. Don't be fooled!
