The 2015 Real Estate Market was strong, and I am appreciative to have been part of it! Thanks to my clients, I was able to achieve the 2015 Realtor Of Distinction Award, and could not be more proud! I sincerely thank you for your support and here’s to continued success in 2016, which is off to a great start!
Now back to biz… I wanted to take a moment to provide you with a brief recap of 2015 for the greater Charleston market. If you are curious about a specific area let me know and I will send you a re-cap, and thanks again for your support! I love what I do!
Once again, the real estate market in The Old Village looks healthy with a steady increase over the past three years. The AVERAGE PRICE PER SQUARE FOOT is up from $322 in 2013 to $452 in 2015. The AVERAGEDAYS ON MARKET are down significantly, from 314 days in 2012 to 21 days In 2015.
If you are thinking of selling your home, I urge you to work with a professional who knows your market and can help you come up with a marketing plan and price point for success. I advocate working with someone who will tell you the TRUTH about what price your home can fetch. Don’t end up being one of those sellers on the market for more than the 21 day average, only to have to readjust price down the road. If I can help, contact me at Jackie@TheCassinaGroup.com. I am happy to give you a complimentary home valuation, specific to your property. Thanks for stopping by my blog and to see all homes for sale in the neighborhood, check out www.SearchOldVillage.com
In this month’s episode of Cassina TV, we chat with Stephanie Hunt and Tom Bradford of Charleston Moves. Their organization is a local non-profit that believes a bike-friendly region is a healthy, active and fun place to live, work and visit. They advocate mobility by bicycle and on foot for the improved health and well-being of greater Charleston — our people, neighborhoods, business districts and overall economic competitiveness. The group works to create a community connection, making it easier for people who chose to bike or walk to do so safely throughout the City of Charleston. They have had several major successes including the pedestrian lane on the Ravenel Bridge and more recently, a dedicated lane on the Ashley River Bridge. In short, Charleston Moves preaches the bike-friendly gospel in and around the Lowcountry.
