Terry & Tim's Insight on the Real Estate Market

May 2021 Update

The spring market has been on fire! Home values continue to do remarkably well and the median sales price is about 15% higher than this time last year.
However, supply continues to be an issue and opportunities are hard to come by. There are now less than 1,200 properties available in all of the Charleston tri-county area. If you’re looking to buy a home, it’s important to be financing and mentally prepared to make a big decision on a moment’s notice to beat the competition.

We are ready, with inside information on “off market” deals and the negotiating tactics to help you win! We are grateful for your business.⁠

March 2021 Update

The Charleston real estate market is roaring! January and February transactions were up almost 24% compared to last year, and Daniel Island’s transactions alone were up 53%! Currently there are only about 1,600 properties available in the Charleston region, and half of those MLS areas have a 1 month supply or less. The median number of days for a property on the market is just 4 days, which is UNREAL. Historically, more properties come on the market in the spring, so will there be enough properties on the market next month to meet the high demand? Tune in to find out!⁠

February 2021 Update

The rainy weather has not slowed down the real estate market in Charleston! January sales were up almost 22% compared to last January and each week we’re already seeing well over 400 properties going under contract. These are numbers that we wouldn’t normally see until the Spring. Interest rates and inventory remain incredibly low.  As a buyer, you need to be prepared so you can act quickly in this competitive market!

January 2021 Update

Happy 2021! Quick recap of last year… With almost 9% in annual appreciation and 17% more transactions than the previous year, 2020 was the best year on record since 1998.

As a buyer, even though it’s a seller’s market, the market is not overpriced and we’re right in line with where we’re supposed to be. The biggest constraint that we’ll see in 2021 is inventory. When a well-priced property comes on the market, it sells quickly, which can be frustrating to buyers. This is why it’s important to be prepared, and that’s something that we can help you with.

December 2020 Update

We are getting so close to wrapping up 2020 and it has been been a record-setting year for the Charleston real estate market. There were 15% more sales this year than last year and values have increased an average of 8.4% throughout the area. The number of available properties for sale continues to decline to record lows so it remains to be a very competitive market.

It has been a GREAT year for the real estate market. If you’re interested in knowing what your home value is, just give us a call! We would love to talk to you.

November 2020 Update

While the temperatures may be down a little, the real estate market continues to rise! The number of closings in October were up over 50% compared to October last year.

As inventory continues to dwindle we are now at less than 2,800 properties available in the area, whereas a few months ago we were well over 3000. We also continue to see high demand, which is helping to drive sales prices up. Many submarkets are now seeing double digit increases for the year, including Daniel Island which is at 10.6%! Don’t wait until the new year to put your home on the market, if the timing works for you… Now is the time!

October 13, 2020 Update

September was another incredible month in the Charleston real estate market!

We were up 47% in the total number of transactions compared to September 2019 and the average sales price was up by almost 10%. The best advice that we can give for buyers to compete in this market is to BE PREPARED!  Properties are going so fast and getting pre-qualified before making an offer is an easy step that can help give a seller that extra confidence to pick your offer over another.
