Median Home Price Continues to Climb, Sales Slowed by Lack of Inventory

1,398 homes sold in January in the Charleston region at a median price of $360,000 according to preliminary data released today by the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors® (CTAR).

Sales volume declined slightly, by 3% when compared to last January’s sales of 1,447 homes. Median price increased by 14% from the January 2021 figure of 315,000.

Inventory data shows 53% fewer homes, with 1,203 homes listed as “active” for sale in the CHS Regional MLS database at the end of the month—representing just under one month’s worth of available inventory.

Charleston Housing Market Review

MEDIAN SALES PRICE UP SIGNIFICANTLY SINCE 2012

I recently attended the Charleston Trident Association of Realtor’s Housing Market Review and would like to share a few take-aways. Overall the Charleston Market is still humming along, inventory is still low and buyers are still looking for homes.

Charleston’s Median Sales Price is up, with the most significant jump taking place from 2020 to 2021. The Average Days On Market were at an all-time low in 2020, and although the average days on market were up slightly in 2021, the Charleston trend mirrors the nation wide stats.

So what is the forecast for 2022? Industry experts agree that the pace of sales growth may soften, but home prices will likely continue to remain elevated. And, housing demand will likely remain steady while employment rates are on the rise. The challenging factors will relate to supply constraints and consumers spending being down due the end of the stimulus money program. The other factor to watch will be rising interest rates. These factors may work together to slow the growth rate seen in 2021, but again, may not necessarily impact prices.
