As commercial property prices begin to buoy and interest rates remain low, many may be wondering what's next.

South Carolina bank-owned home sales buck national trend

As the summer months roll on, many people in the Charleston area may be looking to purchase a new home. Traditionally, summertime is the most active time for the residential property market. As buyers weigh their choices, they may take a look at a variety of types of home sales, including purchasing a bank- or real estate-owned property.
