Is flooding a common problem in SC and should elevation be considered when looking for property to buy or rent? Thanks!

i wouldn't say it is a common problem, only because of the annual average rain fall!
flood "plain" is no a consideration here many homes are built on the flood "way", this causes change in the water flow! which cause problems for those down stream!


use google maps!! you'll see the flood way and flood plain! these will be washes coming off the mountains! make your judgement from that!


then you have the problems of the sea shore! sands bags can help and are cheap to buy and make!


so there are 2 flooding considerations "drainage" "sea surge"!

Congratulations, you are the only person I have seen to ask about this... Occasionally, like Phoenix, there are heavy downpours. When looking at a property look about for drainage areas. Many Arroyos were filled in by Developers. So, when there is heavy rain these areas are flooded out. One area is in the low part of the Bahia area. 
You might also look on Google Earth...You can get an overview of the drainage.
Some of the waterfront dwellings are battered by huge wave action during the Hurricane/tropical storm season...
