It's time once again for a brief update on where the Charleston Tri-County market is heading and what it means for you!

We've seen a huge improvement in the market when comparing January-July 2014 to the same time period this year. Right now, the amount of transactions is up 17%, while the amount of transaction volume is up 23%. The great news is that, while there are a lot more sales this year, there has also been a spike in listings, as we've seen 11% more new listings this year in comparison to last year.



As the summer continues, more and more sellers are gaining equity in their homes and they are able to sell them for what they are actually worth. The great thing is we'll continue to see a lot of listings come on the market throughout the year before tapering off around November. Additionally, we've seen a modest appreciation of home values this year, around 5%, which is indicative of a stable, healthy market.
If you're a seller, it's still a great time to put your home on the market, as inventory is very limited, so homes are selling quickly and for about 97% of the asking price on average. If you're buying, working with a real estate professional will give you the best shot at locking in the home of your dreams in this competitive market.
 If you have any questions, or if you need real estate assistance of any kind, don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're always available to be your Charleston Tri-County real estate resource.
