Florida and Arizona aren’t the only retirement destinations in America. Frequently, the Central Savannah River Area of Georgia and South Carolina has been nationally recognized as a hot spot for retirees. US News & World Report called Augusta, GA “one of the best places to retire for under $40,000” and Aiken was heralded as one of the 21 “best boomer towns” based on data from U.S. Census Bureau and other news sources. We have a lot to offer prospective buyers. How does a tranquil setting, a moderate climate, and a low cost of living sound for starters? When you combine this with all the local opportunities for recreation, family-friendly activities and supply of brand new, classic homes, there should be no doubt that the following neighborhoods will be on your retirement checklist…
