The Charleston Coast From Our View...

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%

Our #dunes30for30 donations, Jan 2019

This year, dunes properties is 30 years old and to celebrate, we’ve pledged to donate to a list of 30 charities, compiled from suggestions by our staff and agents. We’re very pleased to announce the organizations we are supporting this month for our year-long “30 for 30” anniversary celebration!

Dunes 30 for 30

Begin With Books is the Charleston County affiliate of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which encourages literacy for underprivileged preschool children by providing monthly deliveries of free books. With our donation, we will be providing 180 books for 15 kids – that is a full year of monthly deliveries thanks to dunes properties!  If you’d like to learn more about this great organization and perhaps join us in donating, visit the Begin With Books website. They also offer volunteer opportunities, so check them out!. Thanks to dunes agents Jack Hurley and Priscilla Shumway for nominating this great organization.

 

Dunes 30 for 30Dewees Island Conservancy is a 501c3 corporation which focuses on habitat restoration on Dewees. Their mission is to help nature thrive by protecting and restoring the natural environment within conservation areas on Dewees. Our donation will help support projects like the restoration and re-engineering of Lake Timicau or the protection of the island as an important stopover for migratory shorebirds. Dewees Island is very important to us, as the exclusive vacation rental management company for the island and the brokerage home of the island’s top real estate agent, Judy Fairchild. In fact, we have Judy and Reggie Fairchild to thank for suggesting the Conservancy for our 30 for 30 celebration.

 

We’ve also challenged our entire dunes family to volunteer 30 hours this year to deserving groups making a difference. Over the past 30 days, members of our group have been involved in a charitable clothing drive, volunteered at the Lowcountry Food Bank, and registered for the Head for the Cure 5k, while raising donations for the race. We’d love to invite you to donate more this year too! Follow us on social media using #dunes30for30.

Happy 30th Anniversary to Us!

Today marks 30 years of dunes properties!

We began with a single office and three employees on January 1989. We are still locally owned and operated, but now our reach is a bit wider.  Today, we represent the Lowcountry with over 100 exclusive beach vacation rental properties, more than 95 real estate agents and employees, and five full-service offices. 30 years in the making!

Rather than throwing ourselves a big party, we’ve decided to mark this milestone by giving back to the people and communities of the Charleston Coast that have been so good to us through the years. We’ll be donating to a varied list of 30 worthy charities and non-profit organizations, 2-3 per month throughout 2019. Check back each month for information on these organizations and more details about the good they are doing. In addition, we’re challenging the entire dunes family to donate at least 30 hours to charitable pursuits in 2019. We’re calling it our “30 for 30 Challenge.” Won’t you join us?
