The Neighborhood

This walkable community puts an emphasis on neighborly.  With a number of Nexton-sponsored events and clubs, there are tons of opportunities for you to meet your fellow neighbors!  Nexton is designed to live like a small town with homes, schools, shops, parks, restaurants, and businesses all close enough to walk or bike to anywhere you need to be.  Almost half of the community is dedicated to parks, natural open space, and paved paths/trails. The pool at Nexton’s Brighton Park Village is much more than just a 25-meter competition pool! There is also an interactive splash pad for young kids, a huge deck with shady areas, a covered pavilion, and green space that can accommodate a volleyball game, a family picnic or just spending time with a good book.  The Swim Club is designed for year-round fun, complete with a cozy fire-pit for chilly evenings. The highly praised Nexton Elementary opened back in 2015 and is the area’s only Common Sense Digital Leadership School. Walking your kids to school has never been easier!

Charleston Area Market Statistics through September 2017

Market Statistics for blog (5)

August tends to mark the waning of housing activity ahead of the school year. Not all buyers and sellers have children, but there are enough parents that do not want to uproot their children during the school year to historically create a natural market cool down before any actual temperature change. Competition is expected to remain fierce for available listings. Savvy sellers and buyers know that deals can be made well into the school months, as household formations take on many shapes and sizes.

Closed Sales  -3.3% |  Median Sales Price  +1.2% | Months Supply  -22.7%

Charleston Market Statistics Through August 2017

Market Statistics

How long can the residential real estate market go on like this? We are about two years into a national trend of dropping housing supply and increasing median sales prices. There are some regional variations to the story, but the shift to a predominantly seller’s market is mostly complete. Multiple-offer situations over asking price are commonplace in many communities, and good homes are routinely off the market after a single day. It is evident that a favorable economy keeps hungry buyers in the chase.

Charleston Market Statistics through April 2017

Charleston Market Statistics through April 2017

The employment landscape and wages have both improved over the last few years, allowing for more people to participate in the home-buying process. When the economy is in good working order, as it is now, it creates opportunities in residential real estate, and right now is a potentially lucrative time to sell a home. Houses that show well and are priced correctly have been selling quickly, often at higher prices than asking. New listings were down 2.6% and inventory shrank 16.8% while median sales price was up 3.1%.

 Although there is a mounting amount of buyer competition during the annual spring market cycle, buyer demand has not abated, nor is it expected to in the immediate future unless something unpredictable occurs. While strong demand is generally considered a good problem to have, it creates an affordability issue for some buyers, especially first-time buyers. And yet, prices will continue to rise amidst strong demand.

Charleston Market Statistics through March 2017

Charleston Market Statistics through February2017

We can comfortably consider the first quarter to have been a good start for residential real estate in 2017. There was certainly plenty to worry over when the year began. Aside from new national leadership in Washington, DC, and the policy shifts that can occur during such transitions, there was also the matter of continuous low housing supply, steadily rising mortgage rates and ever-increasing home prices. Nevertheless, sales have held their own in year-over-year comparisons and should improve during the busiest months of the real estate sales cycle.

The U.S. economy has improved for several quarters in a row, which has helped wage growth and retail consumption increase in year-over-year comparisons. Couple that with an unemployment rate that has been holding steady or dropping both nationally and in many localities, and consumer confidence is on the rise. As the economy improves, home sales tend to go up. It isn’t much more complex than that right now. Rising mortgage rates could slow growth eventually, but rate increases should be thought of as little more than a byproduct of a stronger economy and stronger demand.

Charleston Market Statistics Through February 2017

Market Stats blog image
The start of the year ushered in a wave of good news about a hot stock market, higher wages and an active home sales environment. At the same time, housing prices have continued to rise, and the low inventory situation and affordability crunch has been particularly hard on first-time buyers struggling to get into the market. Nevertheless, buyer activity is easily outpacing seller activity in much of the country, culminating in relatively quick sales and low supply. Demand definitely remained strong this month.
Closed Sales + 14.9% |  Med. Sales Price + 1.8% | Months Supply – 27.9%

Charleston Market Statistics Show January Home Sales Exceed 1k For The First Time in A Decade!  
January brings out a rejuvenated 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. Continued declines in the number of homes available for sale may push out potential buyers who simply cannot compete for homes selling at higher price points in a low number of days, especially if mortgage rates continue to increase.
Wages are on the uptick for many Americans, while unemployment rates have remained stable and relatively unchanged for several months. The system is ripe for more home purchasing if there are more homes available to sell.
Closed Sales + 5.9% |  Median Sales Price + 9.9% | Months Supply – 27.9%
