October Market Update Median Sales Price Up 6 Percent

YTD, median sales price is up a whopping 7.1% in the Tri-County MLS Areas.

Many MLS areas are up even more than that.

Buying activity was very good for this time of year.


CHARLESTON, SC—(October 10, 2018) 1,236 homes sold in September in the Charleston region at a median price of $276,500 according to preliminary data released today by the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors® (CTAR). Last September, 1,430 homes sold at a median price of $255,620.

Year-to-date sales (number of transactions) data shows an increase of less than 1%, with 14,180 sales thus far in 2018 compared to 14,157 at this time last year.  Not bad, considering last year was a record breaking year for that number.  Median price has increased by 6.4% in the region, at $266,000 in comparison to last year’s $250,000.

Inventory data shows about 9% fewer homes for sale over the last 12-month period, with 5,441 homes listed as “active” for sale in the Charleston Trident Multiple Listing Service (CTMLS) at the end of September.

“Hurricane Florence shut down the Charleston region for nearly a week, which had a tremendous impact on our regional real estate market” said the 2018 CTAR President. “The showing data confirms, we had 12% fewer showings in September, likely a result of the mandatory evacuation. I expect that many September closings transferred over to October and we will see an increase in sales next month” she said.
