As we move into fall, buyers are encouraged to keep and eye on the market, and remained poised to act when the time is right.

Charleston Area Market Stats Through July 2019 (and other news)

In a much anticipated move, The Federal Reserve cut interest rates for the first time in more than a decade at the close of its July meeting . While it was stated this will not be an ongoing trend, it is seen as a precaution for what the future holds. Regardless of further cuts, the U.S. market remains favorable with a strong labor market, solid consumer spending and relatively high stock valuations.

Charleston Area Market Stats Through May 2019

As we hit the mid-year mark, we are starting to notice a reoccurring trend – low inventory and steadily increasing home sales. In addition to this, we are currently seeing a slight rise in days on market (up 8.5% from this time last year), which is most likely due to schools being out for the summer causing buyers to wait to make those large purchase. That being said, markets across the country are starting to level off, meaning more wiggle room for buyers which is always a good sign. As long as the weather works in our favor, we anticipate a healthy real estate market for the Charleston area.
