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.

Charleston Area Market Stats Through April 2019

Spring has SPRUNG and eager buyers are out in full force this season. With beautiful weather and new listings up 4.2%, it’s no wonder competition is fierce for well-priced homes in the Charleston area. Although inventory is still a factor, sellers are poised to make quite a profit in the coming months. With the the national unemployment rate dropping to 3.6% during April 2019 (the lowest level since 1969) we anticipate a positive affect on the real estate market.

Charleston Area Market Stats Through March 2019

Despite mixed weather patterns across much of the U.S. in the first quarter, prices in the Charleston,SC market moved higher as the Median Sales Price was up 5.8 percent. Many home buyers and sellers are sighing in relief as the Federal Reserve announced there will be no further interest rate hikes planned for 2019. This is great news for the area and we anticipate increasing numbers reflected not only in home sales, but in terms of mortgage rates as well, which typically follow suit.

Despite early predictions of a housing market slump, February numbers indicate a resilient market, even with inclement weather in other parts of the country deterring some buyers.

Sullivan’s House, a historic renovation of Sullivan’s Island

Originally constructed in 1924 as a schoolhouse known as the Sullivan’s Island Graded School, the building now known as Sullivan’s House was built in the Craftsman architectural style. By 1938, two wings were added to the east and west, and a portico was constructed at the west wing’s façade. Over the years, this building served as a church and a gathering place and the 1938 footprint remains intact today.

A recent restoration blends historic details mingled with artfully selected modern finishes to create the four luxury residences of Sullivan’s House. The project was developed by a group led by Patrick W. Marr, Steven G. Kleiman, and David C. Stern. Laura Middleton was the lead architect of The Middleton Group, an award-winning firm that has completed many historic renovation projects in Charleston. With interiors by designer Carol Lund, and timeless landscaping by Kelly D. Messier, Sullivan’s House is as beautiful as it is historic.

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%
