5-Year Snapshot- Old Village Market Review of January and February

*This data represents single family homes sold during the months of Jan and Feb in The Old Village and Old Mt. Pleasant over the past 5 years.

Prices are holding steady, especially in certain local markets and the Old Village/ Old Mt. Pleasant neighborhood is no exception. Buyers are plenty and inventory is still low, with only 20 homes on the market, visit to see what’s currently for sale.

Prices are up slightly from this time last year, with the AVERAGE SALES PRICE (during Jan and Feb) inching from approximately $1.4 million to $1.5 million, up significantly from 2019’s average sales price of $1 million.

THE NUMBER OF HOMES SOLD (during Jan and Feb) however, were down from 42 in 2019 to only 9 homes sold in 2023.

Another interesting market shift is The AVERAGE DAYS ON MARKET (during Jan and Feb) was approximately 60 days in 2019 vs. an 14 days in 2023.

Spring Market- Inventory is Still Low

Nationwide, the number of homes available for sale is up from the past two years, however, inventory is still very low when compared to the inventory levels leading up to 2020. And our local market still needs more homes for sale to meet the demand of today’s buyers. If you are considering selling, now is the time to reach out to a professional for guidance.

Charleston Acupuncture

If you know me, you know I have two speeds… I am either “running” or “injured.” So I recently started acupuncture as a drug-free approach to wellness, and I must say that I really like it! True, needles are involved (I close my eyes) but it’s very relaxing and my tight back feels great afterwards!

If you have been considering acupuncture treatment, please meet Sarah Stowers and Treayor Smith with Charleston Acupuncture! Specializing in pain management and sports medicine (a good fit for athletes), they have both dedicated their lives to serving the Charleston area by not only providing acupuncture, but other natural solutions such as herbal medicine, physical therapy, exercise/breathing therapy and more.

Market Review- Lower Mt. Pleasant

The 2023 January stats for Lower Mt. Pleasant show a decrease in the amount of homes sold, but an increase in pricing over this time last year (Average sales price of $887,799 in 2022 vs. 1,076,941 in January, 2023) Homes are taking a bit longer to go under contract, with an average of 21 days on the market vs. 16 days in 2022. But really… 21 days? That doesn’t sound too bad!

Local experts agree that the market will continue to normalize in 2023, however, January stats for Lower Mt. Pleasant emphasize that the market is still strong with low inventory, which allows pricing to continue to rise.
