28th Annual Reindeer Run

This year marks the 28th annual Reindeer Run. The 2018 Reindeer Run starts at 9:00am on Saturday, December 8th near the corner of East Bay and Queen Street.

Presented by Half-Moon Outfitters, the Reindeer Run is a family-oriented, pet-friendly 5k run/walk through the lower peninsula of downtown Charleston, SC.

Proceeds from the Reindeer Run are split between the campaign for the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital and the Charitable Society of Charleston. 80% of the funds go to MUSC and 20% go to the Charitable Society of Charleston’s endowment. This endowment provides grants and donations to local non-profit organizations which benefit both children and elderly residents of the Lowcountry.

Such a fun part of this Run is the costume contest! For more information on the Reindeer Run, check out their site here.

L’ABEYE- Lifestyle Fashion Brand

I am loving this new site, launched by our neighbor, Naomie Olindo, who has combined her eye for fashion, personal style and sharp business acumen to bring us something special!

L’ABEYE /luh-bei/, is a lifestyle brand specializing in privately labeled apparel for fresh, motivated women. A unique fashion movement with a twist.

And here is something I love about Naomie’s creative process…. she uses local models, local marketing interns, and more.  And speaking of keeping it local?  Check out her photos taken at our own Pitt Street Pharmacy!  Simply stunning!  And be sure to follow them on Instagram!

Mt. Pleasant Real Estate Market update

The National Associate Of Realtors has released the sales numbers for the first half of 2018, and they paint a picture of a healthy and consistent market when compared to the same time frame in 2017 and 2016.

Here is a quick snapshot to compare sales from Jan 1 to July 31, 2016-2018, for single family homes, located in Mt. Pleasant, South of the Isle of Palms Connector:

Although the number of homes sold is down slightly (from 757 sold in 2016 to 723 in 2018), the average sales price continues to be on the rise (from $602,000 in 2016 to $674,000 in 2018).

In 2018, homes are averaging 51 Days on the Market, which is relatively a short time frame.  But beware… homes that are sitting on the market over the average may need to reassess their strategy, whether it be by making changes to the home’s condition or reviewing price.  This is where a trusted professional can come in handy.

If you are thinking about buying or selling, it always makes sense to connect with a Realtor who specializes in your target market.  I have been selling homes in the area for years, and happy to help you achieve success.  Please feel free to contact me at Jackie@TheCassinaGroup.com for a consultation today.

Living in the Old Village/ Old Mt.
