Charleston Area Market Stats thru August (and other news)

“The booming U.S. housing market has spilled over to the rental market, which has seen demand for apartment and single-family rentals skyrocket this year, as high sales prices and an inadequate supply of available housing have forced many prospective buyers to rent for the foreseeable future. Increased demand for housing, along with an improving economy, has competition for rental units soaring, and landlords are taking note, with the national median rent increasing 11.4% in 2021 so far, according to Apartment List. In new construction, home builders continue to struggle to meet buyer demand, as housing starts nationwide dropped 7% last month, according to the Commerce Department. Single-family home construction declined 4.5%, and multi-family home construction, which includes condos and apartment buildings, was also down, falling by 13%. Labor shortages, rising material costs, and supply-chain setbacks continue to challenge builders, with some projects temporarily paused due to availability and cost of materials.” ~ Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS® (CTAR)

Charleston Area Market Stats through March (and other news)

Normal spring increases in sales activity, coupled with relaxing COVID-19 policies, created a very busy March real estate market as buyer demand continued largely unabated in the face of rising home prices and mortgage rates. Existing home seller and new construction activity continue to remain below levels necessary to bring the market back into balance, pointing to a busy and competitive buyer market in the coming months.

Charleston Area Market Stats Through January (and other news)

CHS Market Stats thru January 2021

January started off strong for the housing market, with healthy buyer demand and strong market fundamentals. A robust increase in housing starts in December points to an active year for new construction, but higher material costs, especially lumber, and a limited supply of buildable lots will temper the number of new units.

Charleston Area Market Stats through December (and other news)

Charleston Area Stats thru December 2020

What a strange year! It was certainly weird for all of us at dunes properties and I’m sure you and yours also! So many vacation reservations had to be canceled or rescheduled while our Charleston islands were closed to the public this past spring. Our agents, already set up with home offices, were joined by our employees, who like so many in the country successfully adapted to working from home. We continue to do so, alternating days to limit our office personnel numbers.

On the bright side, I am simply amazed by our 2020 real estate record year, having closed over $415 Million in sales; a 31 year company record and over 30% above our previous best year, 2017 at $320 Million. In fact, of the over 6,000 Charleston area REALTORS®, FIVE of our dunes agents landed in the top 50.

Demand (mostly from big cities) is off the charts, and with home inventory at record lows, I expect pickings to be slim this year. So, with 30 year fixed mortgage rates STILL BELOW 4%, we encourage you to come get your piece of paradise! We do hope you and your family managed through this past year all healthy as ever, and we look forward to seeing you on the Charleston Coast soon!

Charleston Area Market Stats through November (and other news)

Charleston Market Stats through November 2020

“November saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average top 30,000 for the first time, while mortgage rates reached new record lows again. These new records have provided encouragement for buyers to move forward on home purchases, which continued to remain strong overall for the month. Showing activity remains higher than the same period a year ago across most of the country, suggesting that strong buyer demand is likely to continue into what is typically the slowest time of year. With inventory remaining constrained in most market segments, sellers continue to benefit from the tight market conditions.”

January brought out a new crop of buyers with a renewed enthusiasm in a new calendar year.

Despite home affordability continuing to be an issue, early signs suggest the market is beginning to improve, with more homes coming on the market just in time for the summer months.
