Median Price Has Increased 6 In The Region YTD

CHARLESTON, SC—(August 10, 2018) 1,685 homes sold in July in the Charleston region at a median price of $268,583 according to preliminary data released today by the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors® (CTAR). Last July, 1,693 homes sold at a median price of $258,935.

Year-to-date, sales have increased less than half a percent, with 11,052 sales thus far in 2018 compared to 11,018 at this time last year. Median price has increased 6% in the region, landing at $265,000 in comparison to last year’s $250,000.

Inventory data shows about 13% fewer homes for sale over the last 12-month period, with 5,275 homes listed as “active” for sale in the Charleston Trident Multiple Listing Service (CTMLS) at the end of July.

“Without an increase in inventory, it was not surprising that the typically busy summer season sales have been pretty even. We also continue to be challenged by affordability issues in our region, which is making our market inaccessible for many buyers” said 2018 CTAR President.  “Nationally, there is conversation among economists about a housing bubble, with this summer’s sales slowdown being the first indicator. However, in our market, I think it is more likely that we are moving towards a market balancing—sales growth and price growth will continue to even out, as we’ve seen over the last few months, and the result will be a more balanced market” said Lease.  “Lending practices are sound, our local economy is strong, as is demand for housing here, so I don’t believe an evening of the market will have negative consequences for us in Charleston” she concluded.
