The Million Dollar Market in Downtown Charleston is Hot Hot Hot

The Million Dollar Market in Downtown Charleston is Hot Hot Hot

I am not just saying this because I am an agent insisting that ‘Now is a good time to buy!“(Cue eye roll)  I am saying this because the statistics are sorta blowing me away.  I called it when I said Wagener Terrace fixer-uppers were hot about 7 months back, and I mentioned this topic briefly in my February newsletter, but here are the numbers.  You tell me what YOU think!

I looked at all homes (2BR+) south of Calhoun St between $850,000 and $1,150,000 on the MLS.

In 2008 – a total of 9 sold.

In 2009 – a total of 6 sold.

Thus far in 2010, 5 have already sold (4 in the past 30 days), and another 7 are under contract.

And there are only 18 available (see the list below).

Using the standard inventory calculation (# active listings/# sold in prior month) which gives you a good idea about the health of a market (6 months is normal) – we come up with 4.5 months of inventory.

So what do you think?  Does that qualify as hot?  My advice to sellers is if you want to get your average-sized, nice-condition house sold and not just listed, price it at or under $1,000,000.  My advice to you if you are looking to buy?  If you find one you like at that price, make an offer that you are comfortable with, but by all means don’t dilly dally.  There might be a few currently priced over $1,150,000 that you could get for less than that, so don’t be afraid to look a bit higher since the selection is thinning every day.
