Americans are Moving to South Carolina

Americans are Moving to South Carolina

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 12, 2018

Auston Chase Apartments, Ridgeland, SCAmericans are moving.

And they're ditching their homes largely in the Northeast and Midwestern regions of the U.S. to head to states in the Mountain, South, and Pacific West, according to United Van Lines' 2017 National Movers Study, which tracks state-to-state migration patterns annually.

In 2017, Illinois and New Jersey residents left at the highest rates, while Vermont and Oregon had the highest percentages of inbound moves. Idaho, which was the fastest-growing state from 2016 to 2017, also had a high percentage of inbound migration, with about 63 percent of its interstate moves being inbound.

The movement reflects larger trends in Americans' living situations.

This year's data reflects longer-term trends of movement to the western and southern states, especially to those where housing costs are relatively lower, climates are more temperate and job growth has been at or above the national average, among other factors. We're also seeing continued migration to the Pacific Northwest and Mountain West as young professionals and retirees leave California.

South Carolina is a state where people are moving to, with an inbound rank of 7. In fact, 56.9% of those moving in South Carolina are inbound moves.

The state is most known for its family-friendly and affordable beaches, warm weather and hundreds of golf courses.

Give A Free Holiday Gift in 30-Seconds or Less

Give A Free Holiday Gift in 30-Seconds or Less

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Auston Chase Apartments, Ridgeland, SCIf a friend, relative, or valued service provider has a website, give them the gift of a business Facebook “like” this Holiday season. This act is free and will literally take you 30 seconds or less. By doing so, you help your friend or relative further establish business credibility and trust from an online standpoint.

Why do this? The reason is simple. Facebook “likes” is something that business owners can refer to promote their business popularity and interaction with their clients. It is also a widely accepted conclusion that Facebook “likes” play some role in how a website converts visitors into customers.

So if you know anyone with a website and wish them well in business, take 30-seconds and “like” their business Facebook page. Look for the Facebook logo usually located at the top or bottom of the website’s home page. Then shoot them a quick note saying, “Happy Holidays. I recently “liked” your business Facebook page and wish you continued business success in 2018 and beyond”. It would be a kind gesture and one that cost you nothing other than 30 seconds of your time.

To all our regular readers of this blog, we wish you all Happy Holidays and only the best for 2018 and beyond.

Renting Now Looks Better Than Before

Renting Now Looks Better Than Before

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, December 14, 2017

Auston Chase Apartments, Ridgeland, SCMillennials locked out of the housing market have this consolation: House prices have shot up so quickly that the financial advantage of being a homeowner is fast eroding in many cities.

While it’s still a better deal to buy in some cities, the economic benefit has narrowed to the point that in some places, for some households, the decision to rent or buy a home may be too close to call.

The shift has come because home prices and interest rates have risen recently, while rents have largely stagnated.

To be sure, owning remains at least a bit cheaper than renting in all 100 of the major cities on Trulia’s list.

Yet that difference has narrowed sharply from last year, when owners were paying roughly 41% less than renters. Add in that many apartment communities have additional amenities that you would pay for if you owned a home as well as eliminating the time spent on home maintenance.

In some popular cities, moreover, the homeowner advantage is close to being erased.

And it wouldn’t take that much to erase those homeowner price advantages altogether, the Trulia data shows. Even a 22% difference could be eliminated if home prices continue to outpace rents — or if interest rates rise.

For instance, Trulia’s calculations are based on a 30-year mortgage rate of 4.1%. If rates climbed 2.7 percentage points to 6.8%, the current homeowner advantage in many cities would disappear completely.

That’s not necessarily an outlandish scenario. While mortgage rates have remained low since the 2008 financial crisis, rates around 7% are much closer to the historical norm. Federal Reserve officials, whose control of short-term interest rates gives them some sway over mortgage prices, expect those short-term rates to rise roughly two to three percentage points over the next few years.

Trulia’s rent vs. buy calculations are based on median homes value and rental prices for April 2017. Trulia also assumed homeowners took out a 30-year mortgage covering 80% of a property’s value and lived in the property for seven years.

That seven-year assumption is key, because there is one scenario where it’s often cheaper to rent than buy: when you plan to stay in a home for just a couple of years.

In that case, one-time costs like the real estate agent’s commission and closing costs loom larger — and you benefit less from your home’s appreciation.

Happy Thanksgiving from Auston Chase Apartments

Happy Thanksgiving from Auston Chase Apartments

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Auston Chase Apartments, Ridgeland, SCIt’s Thanksgiving week and a time each year when we reflect upon the blessing within our lives. Today, our warmest Thanksgiving wishes go out to all of you, our residents, friends, and neighbors. Along with this note of thanks to you, this week we offer a special Thanksgiving “shout-out” to one of the more unsung Thanksgiving heroes, Sarah Hale. Historians credit Sara Hale as the originator of the Thanksgiving federal holiday.

Sara Hale undertook a 17-year letter writing campaign to make Thanksgiving a national holiday observed in all states. Before Hale, Thanksgiving was not a fixed holiday but rather an informal tradition. Presidents would select a day and make it known that it would be a day of thanksgiving and community. Hale lobbied five separate presidents for a set date until finally her request was granted by president Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln congratulated her tenacity and immortalized the holiday as part of American culture.

So thanks, Sara, for your 17 years of letter writing, for securing our Day of Thanks on Thursday, and for your part in creating one of the most warm and celebrated day within our American culture!

Honorably Discharged Veterans will Soon Shop Tax-Free in Bluffton, SC

Honorably Discharged Veterans will Soon Shop Tax-Free in Bluffton, SC

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, November 09, 2017

Auston Chase Apartments, Ridgeland, SCHey veterans, you can soon shop tax free.

Starting later this year, all honorably discharged veterans, no matter their branch of service, will be eligible to shop tax-free online at the Army & Air Force Exchange Service with the same discounts they enjoyed on base while in the military. It’s the latest way in which the organization is trying to keep its customers as the armed forces shrink and airmen and soldiers buy more for delivery.

Adding 13 million potential new customers will give extra ammunition to the group that runs the stores on U.S. Army and Air Force bases worldwide as it fights Amazon and other retailers for veterans’ online shopping dollars.

Since hiring its first civilian CEO five years ago, the Exchange has upgraded the brands at base stores to include items like Disney toys, Michael Kors fashions and other top names. Like private stores, it’s also imposed tighter cost controls, reduced the number of employees and improved people’s experience on the website.

“The intent is to really beat Amazon at their game because we have locations literally on the installations,” said CEO Tom Shull. “We’re leaning toward not just ship-from-store but pick-up-from-store and eventually deliver-from-store.”

The Exchange is adding shipping centers within its stores to allow it to send products directly from those locations more cheaply and quickly. Twenty-six stores now ship orders, and that will expand to 55 by the end of the year.

Within the next three years, Shull said the goal is to deliver something on base within two hours of when it is ordered. That’s possible partly because the Exchanges are already on base, cleared by security.

The Exchange delivers most orders on the second day now. Shull said shipping from stores will make a big difference in regions around bases, which are often in more rural areas.

Expanding online shopping to all honorably discharged veterans is expected to add about $200 million annually within three years to the $8.3 billion in sales the Exchanges generated last year.

Adding those shoppers, what Shull called “the foundation of our growth,” is critical to help offset the 13 percent decline in the number of active-duty Army and Air Force soldiers since 2011 when the Exchange generated $10.3 billion revenue.

“It’s a modest benefit, but it can save you thousands of dollars a year,” said Shull, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy who served in the Army for a decade before starting a retail career at chains including Macy’s.

Former Marine Forrest Cornelius was among the first to sign up at the verification website when it launched in June, and got a chance to start shopping early to test it out. The 51-year-old was impressed by the site and a deal he found on Ray-Ban sunglasses.

“The biggest thing is price. They’re always going to be a little bit cheaper,” said Cornelius, who lives in Dallas.

But competing on price in today’s retail environment is increasingly difficult, said Edward Jones analyst Brian Yarbrough. Just look at how much trouble Walmart has competing with Amazon, he said, because Walmart has the fixed costs associated with its stores.

“To think you’re going to compete on price, you’re going to have a hard time there,” he said.

Under Shull’s leadership, the Exchange stores have traded their industrial feel and reliance on off-brand merchandise for a more modern look featuring well-known labels.

Two-thirds of the main Exchange store at Offutt Air Force Base resembles any department store, with prominent displays of name-brand makeup, Nike fitness gear and Carter’s clothes for kids. The rest is filled with the kind of electronics, appliances, housewares and toys found at Walmart or Sears, with major brands in every section.

The Exchanges don’t pay rent for their military base locations, and the government transports some of their supplies and goods to far-flung locations, but otherwise they operate mostly like an independent retailer. Roughly two-thirds of the employees are family members of soldiers or airmen.

The Exchange, which is part of the Defense Department, reported earnings of $384 million last year. That’s a sharp contrast from five years ago when Shull arrived to projections of $180 million in losses.

Of last year’s profit, $225 million was returned to the defense department to help pay for quality-of-life programs on bases like child development and fitness centers. Besides the main stores, the Exchanges also operate more than 70 movie theaters and bring in franchise restaurants and other vendors for the shopping malls it operates on bases.

Shull feels those are good reasons for the new online shopping privileges to draw veterans to do their shopping there.

“Veterans value the cost savings and what they can do to support the military,” he said.
