Charleston Area Market Stats Through May 2019

As we hit the mid-year mark, we are starting to notice a reoccurring trend Рlow 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.

Closed Sales +3.0% | Median Sales Price +4.0% | Months Supply -2.6%

Located on the north side of the Isle of Palms and between the ICW (Intracoastal Waterway) and Hamlin Creek, 0 Little Goat Island is a developer’s dream!

Charleston Area Market Stats Through January 2019

January brought out a new crop of buyers with a renewed enthusiasm in a new calendar year. Sales totals may still inevitably start slow in the first half of the year due to ongoing inventory concerns. 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.

2018 Real Estate Market Stats

Charleston Real Estate Market Stats

The facts of residential real estate have remained consistent in 2018. In year-over year comparisons, inventory is lower in most locales, and yet homes sales continue to rise. Although the Federal Reserve’s latest rate hike deterred some buyers at the end of 2018, 2019 looks a little more promising with the Fed Reserve indicating half the amount of hikes, thus in theory creating a more balanced market. With unemployment rates low and wages starting to increase, we are hopeful inventory will increase, although, the biggest concern continues to be affordability.

2017 vs. 2018 Quick Stats:  Closed Sales -4.8% |  Median Sales Price +5.1% | Days On Market -6.8%

Beating the Heat on Charleston’s Waterways

10 Ways to Get on the Water in the Holy City, Part One

There are so many ways to take advantage of Charleston’s waterways, and the end of August is a good time. From cruising to Bulls Island via ferry to paddling to a remote island via kayak, the adventures are many. We’ve compiled a list so good we‚Äôre breaking it up into two posts, so check back next month for the next installment and start planning your next adventure.

Tall Ship Sunset Cruise
Mingle with dolphins, pelicans, and gulls aboard the only three-sail tall ship in Charleston! Schooner Pride sails during the day, daily, but we recommend the sunset cruise to really beat the Holy City heat and take in the view of downtown with a magnificent backdrop of the multi-colored skies. Board at the Aquarium Wharf and float past the Battery, Fort Sumter, the USS Yorktown and Castle Pinckney.

Charleston Waterways, Coastal Expeditions

Bulls Island Ferry
Boarding on the Isle of Palms, the Bulls Island Ferry is a naturalist-guided tour through the estuary to Bulls Island, where you have a chance to explore some 16 miles of trails and seven miles of undeveloped shoreline to discover bald eagles, dolphins, alligators, bobcats, otters, and more across the 66,000-acre Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. Sound like your cup of tea? Check out coastalexpeditions.com for more info and to book your tickets. PS: Coastal Expeditions was named Best Coastal Detour by Southern Living.

Overnight Expedition
Kayak Charleston SC takes the kayaking tour of the Lowcountry a step further by leading overnight black water and saltwater expeditions. For the black water expedition, for example, kayakers work their way down the Santee River, exploring canals, black water creeks, brackish water marshes, and fresh water islands along the way and camp out on an island or riverbank. Expect to see bald eagles, sallow-tailed kites, hawks, wetland birds, alligators, river otter, deer, wild boar, and more while absorbing the surreal history of waters once paddled by the Santee Indians.

Jam on the Water
There are plenty of great harbor tours out there, but this one‘s a little more rock ‘n’ roll than most. Jam on the Water features local bands taking on the catalogs of legendary acts, like Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, and the Rolling Stones. It runs on various Friday evenings throughout the summer and fall, with the final show with 54 Bicycles performing songs by Widespread Panic, happening on Fri. Nov. 17, 2017. Board the Carolina Queen at the City Marina on Lockwood Drive at 6:30, grab a Sweetwater brew, and sail from 7 until 9 p.m.

Charleston Waterways, Charleston SUP Safaris

Paddleboarding
No matter how you slice it, paddleboarding is one of the coolest ways to explore Charleston’s waterways. There are several places that do tours, and you can rent out paddleboards should you want to be the master of your own destiny. Charleston SUP Safaris lets you rent a board for a few hours or several days if needed, or they’ll lead you on a two-hour marsh tour through remote creeks, marsh fields, and saltwater wilderness behind Folly Beach, where they’ll point out local ecosystems, wildlife, and flora. Charleston SUP Safaris was voted #1 Stand Up Paddle Co. by the Charleston City Paper

Charleston has no shortage of amazing waterways, and there is just as much variety in the ways you can enjoy them. Next week we’ll bring you part two, but in the meantime, get on the water this weekend and cool off!
