City Guide
Mount Pleasant
Moving to Mount Pleasant

The Old Village is the oldest neighborhood in Mount Pleasant, and in it is the historic Hibben House, built in 1775. Explore it and the Pitt Street Shops featured on television programs about Southern Cuisine and ingredients. Mount Pleasant was originally mostly populated by Charleston residents able to afford summer homes across the river from the Charleston peninsula in the Old Village neighborhood. But Mount Pleasant is no longer "old." Today, Mount Pleasant extends considerably beyond the Old Village, with planned, newer neighborhoods spreading out to the Francis Marion National Forest. Along tree lined streets, with back yard creeks and wooded privacy, youll find upscale neighborhoods, marshlands prime for bird watching, and enough golf courses to keep any duffer happy for years. The Wando and Cooper rivers slip through this part of town, and along them are more paths for walking and biking.

A large suburban community, Mount Pleasant has grown rapidly in the last twenty years, with a current population of around 68,000. Its residents embrace the relaxed and genteel Southern beachfront lifestyle.

Neighborhoods

Throughout this community youll find top notch recreational facilities, and beach access. Whether your apartment search has you looking for an historic property in the center of town or newly built condos, Mount Pleasant offers the apartment homes, three bedroom houses for rent, or condominiums of your dreams. Apartment complexes and cozy bungalows for rent dot the older neighborhoods in the town center.

Belle Hall: Community located near the Wando River with prime marsh views. Nearby Long Point Shopping Center houses shops and restaurants. Although a nice area, the price tags on the homes just might make you faint.

Hobcaw Point: Here youll find modern, upscale homes on half-acres of land, elegant oak trees, and waterfront property along Hobcaw Creek. Living here you may find yourself applying for membership in the Hobcaw Yacht Club...or at least watching their summer regatta. Again, the rental prices here are high enough to make you turn away.

Town Center: In this coastal enclave your rental search will uncover single family homes and apartment complexes of all sizes--at moderate prices too. Historic homes alternate with properties built after 1970. Highly walkable, all the downtown shops and cafes are within easy reach. Commuters here spend less than 15 minutes getting to work.

Snowden: No relation to the former CIA and NSA employee; this suburban community offers medium sized single family homes as well as apartment complexes. Many of the apartments are newer, having been built after 2000. While this neighborhood appeals to those with an executive lifestyle, it is also among the most diverse in the area, with Italian and Jamaican heritage a part of some residents ancestory.

Nearby is the Boone Hall Plantation, which houses the annual Taste of Charleston and The Lowcountry Oyster Festival Memorial Waterfront Park is a point of pride for the city, situated near Ravenal Bridge. Kids will enjoy a maritime themed playground, and there’s a caf serving up casual treats if you can’t be bothered to pack your own picnic. View of the bridge and the water are stunning, but more lively past-times are offered too - live music weekly in the summer, movie nights on a giant screen outdoors, and Splash Day. Bet you can’t get what happens on Splash Day. That’s right, you get wet, with enormous water slides set up for the day.

If you're more into acquiring things than spending times in the outdoors, Upscale Mount Pleasant Towne Centre houses over 65 national and local retail shops near the Isle of Palms. Every summer, the mall hosts a Fashion Camp for the young and fashion forward to learn about designing and clothing.Going to the market? The Mount Pleasant Farmers Market serves up a veritable afternoon buffet of veggies, fruits, local baked goods, flowers and full meals. Kid’s activities, and live music are part of the weekly event. Sure you could go to the local grocery store, but wouldnt you rather groove to some music and taste some rum cake while you shop?

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
