The Blue Porch Ceiling Mystery Solved!

When touring homes, one can’t help but notice this “uniquely Charleston” trend- the light blue porch ceiling!  Many assume it is meant to represent the color of the sky, but there is more to the tradition than meets the eye.

It’s no coincidence. You can find “haint blue” all over Charleston, whether on some of the most historic houses on the Battery, or new construction communities in Mt. Pleasant…  So, what’s it all about?

According to Charleston FYI:

Now mimicked by paint companies, the first-ever “haint blue” is said to have originated in Gullah Culture in the Carolinas hundreds of years ago. The Gullah Geechee people painted their doors, window frames, shutters, and their porch ceilings as a means of protection. The light blue is believed to have the power to protect homeowners by chasing away evil spirits or ghosts. While many hear this and are quick to judge, no one should be so certain in a city known for its historic, haunted streets.

Even for those that don’t believe in the spirits, the light blue also brings a charming touch to any porch. It is also said that blue paint is believed to keep bugs and birds from nesting. The blue resembles the color of the sky, a place bugs and birds wouldn’t naturally settle or nest.

Whether or not you believe in the evil spirits that may be roaming around the cobble-stone streets of Charleston, the shade known as “haint blue” can add a charming and peaceful accent to any porch, even outside of the Lowcountry. The next time you’re wandering around Downtown Charleston, remember to look up at the porch ceilings to witness true Lowcountry culture.

3 Reasons to Hire an Experienced Realtor

Before you hire a friend of the family to help you buy or sell your home, you should give this some thought….

*A savvy REALTOR® can properly advise on market value.  As a seller, over pricing will cause you to sit on the market longer than anticipated, and miss potential buyers who will move on to another home.

*Negotiation Skills are key!  Many times getting a deal done is a result of knowing what to say, when to say and how to say it.  Your REALTOR® should be well versed and skilled when acting as the buffer between you and your buyer, in addition to providing you with a fiduciary relationship and confidentiality.

*Avoid the pitfalls!  And there are many…every deal provides a new set of challenges and learning experiences. Closing more deals results in an educated agent who can help you maneuver through to settlement.
