Tax Benefits For Senior Citizens in South Carolina

I found an interesting document online that explains TAX BENEFITS (and more) AVAILABLE TO SENIOR CITIZENS IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

South Carolina is a GREAT place to call home and live in retirement.  One benefit is especially for homeowners in South Carolina:
At AGE 65,
Homestead Tax Exemption – first $50,000 of the fair market value of a house or mobile home owned by a state resident of at least one year is exempt from municipal, county, school, and special assessment real property taxes. Exemptions provided to surviving spouses who are 50 or older and anyone who is legally blind or has a permanent disability, regardless of age. Apply at county auditor’s office on or before July 16. (Code 12-37-250)

Back From Vacation in Mexico (again)

We're back from our 13 night vacation in Mexico - 7 nights in Cancun and 6 nights in
Playa del Carmen.  We had a wonderful time.  But, it's time to get back to selling real estate and blogging again.  Some interesting articles will follow soon.

Here is a link to some pictures from the fun in Mexico:
