Charleston Area Market Statistics Through June 2016

Market Stats graphic June

Halfway through 2016, residential real estate markets are performing as predicted at the beginning of the year. Sales and prices have been going up in most areas, while the number of homes for sale and total months’ supply of inventory have been going down. Meanwhile, many sellers have been getting a higher percentage of their asking price, and supply continues to struggle to meet demand. The message may be repetitive, but it is largely positive.
New Listings – up 1.3%. Pending Sales – up 17.9%.  Inventory – down 22.2% Median Sales Price – up 4.2%. Days on Market -down 5.2%. Months Supply of Inventory – down 32.7%.

With an interest rate increase still in the cards this year, combined with the American political landscape and global economic events, a cooldown could occur by winter. Presently, however, summery growth prevails as many locales are reaching near-record prices not seen in more than a decade.- According to Charleston Trident Association of Realtors

Charleston Area Market Statistics through April 2015

As we wrap up the second quarter of 2015, most markets are expected to see a rapid increase in new listings. Spring is usually the time of the year that we see the most activity in the real estate market, as we see a huge increase in some of the most desirable homes being polished up and placed on the market. We’re ready for what summer will bring.
National home ownership percentage is actually the lowest since 1993.  Rental prices continue to grow which causes people to think twice about committing to a 12 month lease. The number of homeowners this year will also be determined by mortgage rates and lending practices.

Charleston City Council Approved 4,500 Residential Development

Last night, City Council members deliberated on the proposal of a 4,500 residential development in the Bees Ferry area of West Ashley. According to William Joy of WCSC, The Long Savannah Project was approved and will cover 3,000 acres, 1,200 of which will be used for homes and 400,000 square feet will be used for retail and office space. Long Savannah Project

The approval of this major residential project is great news for the people who live in West Ashley, myself being one of them. The community is really hoping this area is going to be revamped and this project should show everyone that West Ashley is on track to developing for people that are moving to the area.

Traffic studies done on this project show that the entire area will be gridlocked, along Bees Ferry and Glenn McConnell (didn’t the Bees Ferry construction just end?!), but this should be a small price to pay for the major development.The project was originally approved in 2007, but was foreclosed on. We should expect to see around 500 homes in the next two years and the entire project to be complete in the next 20.

Charleston Area Market Statistics Through December 2014

Charleston area market statistics december 2014

In December 1,270 homes sold at a median price of $202,870. 2015 CTAR President, Matt DeAntonio, gave a great outlook for 2015, stating that “we expect to see sales volume and prices continue to grow.” While inventory remained low, 12% lower than in 2013, some notable changes in the market from 2013 to 2014 included a 17% increase in single-family home sales and that distressed sales continued to decline significantly.

Charleston Area Market Statistics through July 2014

These Charleston area market statistics were recently released by the Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS®.  “Our housing market continues to be where the economy experts thought it would be – steady, sustainable growth in both closed transactions and median price,” said 2014 CTAR President, Corwyn Melette. “With five straight months of inventory growth – albeit small, single digit percentage growth – some prospective buyers, who may not have found what they were looking for in the spring, should take another look and see if they find something that fits their needs now,” he added.
