Charleston Area Market Stats through February (and other news)

Mortgage interest rates ticked a bit higher in February, but remain below their February 2020 levels. Interest rates may rise a bit further in coming weeks, but according to Freddie Mac chief economist Sam Khater, “while there are multiple temporary factors driving up rates, the underlying economic fundamentals point to rates remaining in the low 3 percent range for the year.” With rates still at historically low levels, home sales are unlikely to be significantly impacted, though higher rates do impact affordability.

Agent Spotlight: Joy Millar

“I don’t think I have ever met a REALTOR® that is
more dedicated, responsive, and pleasant to deal with than Joy Millar. In an intensely competitive and skyrocketing market, Joy was the difference between us getting a truly special house, and being priced out of the market. Her knowledge of Seabrook Island combined with her contacts made the impossible happen. She is an absolutely delightful person, and I cannot recommend her services highly enough.”  ~ Paul M.

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.”

“While buyer activity continues to be robust, seller activity continues to be a bit softer, with fewer homes being listed for sale than a year ago. Many housing experts believe sellers remain reluctant to list their homes due to continued concerns over COVID-19, which was beginning to see a resurgence in June. Until sellers regain confidence, housing inventory will continue to be constrained during what is expected to be an active summer selling season.”
