October Market Update For The Charleston Tri County Region

October Market Update For The Charleston Tri County Region

CHARLESTON, SC—(October 11, 2017) According to preliminary data released today by the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors® (CTAR) 1,422 homes sold in September in the region at a median price of $256,335, reflective of a 13% decline in sales and 6% growth in median sales price as compared to last September, when 1,627 homes sold at a median price of $242,878.

The year-to-date pace of growth in sales and median price tightened slightly again but still show healthy levels of increases over last year. 14,142 homes have sold in the region at a median price of $250,000 thus far in 2017. Sales volume has increased about 3% compared to 2016, with homes selling for about 4% more than they did at this point last year.

“While the beginning of Fall typically marks a slower pace of market activity, we may also be seeing the initial shift of the market. However, it’s important to focus on the larger data provided in the year-to-date figures. 3% growth in sales volume and 4% growth in median price is actually right where we’d like to see gains—those are very sustainable levels of growth” said 2017 CTAR President Dave Sansom. “Over the past two years, we’ve seen monumental growth in our market as both our population and job markets have increased rapidly. We knew that wouldn’t continue forever, and that at some point the market would begin to level out” said Sansom.

5,267 homes were listed as “active” for sale in the Charleston Trident Multiple Listing Service (CTMLS) at the end of the month, down 17% from 2016 levels.

Preliminary data showed 1,694 homes sold in August in the region at a median price of $244,867.  Adjusted numbers now show 1,706 sales at a median price $245,000.
