2-Story Penthouse- 18 Broad Street- Available for $12,500,000

18 Broad Street, 8000 sq feet, located on the top two floors of The People’s Building.   Click here to view entire listing. 

1 - Copy6-18BroadStreet-KeenEyeMarketing-63 - CopyCharleston is home to some of the most stunning properties in the world, but there’s really nothing that compares to the stature and location of 18 Broad Street, also known as the Peoples Building. Nestled near the corner of historic Broad and East Bay Streets, find yourself immersed in all of the historic charm of the city and steps away from the best in southern cuisine, entertainment, and the unmatched scenery of the Holy City–Conde Nast’s Top City in the US for nine years. Unparalleled in prominence, and certainly in panoramic views, the penthouse at 18 Broad comprises the top two floors of the historic People’s Building, originally built in 1911.  For more details, contact me at Jackie@TheCassinaGroup.com

Charleston-area Home Showings Drop for 11th Straight Month

jk sold

Interesting information from the Post and Courier, and while I must agree with the stats, I will say that working with a seasoned Realtor, who knows your market, is the key to going under contract quickly.  As an example, my most recent Old Village Listing 209 Greenwich Street, went under contract in 7 days. 

From Warren L. Wise, Post and Courier

While Charleston-area home sales are just slightly off last year’s pace through the first half of the year, home showings continue to lag.

For the 11th consecutive month, the number of people walking through doors to check out a house dipped across the Lowcountry in June.

The ShowingTime Showing Index for the Charleston region reported the number of doors being opened for prospective buyers dropped 6 percent in June. Showings have been down every month since last August and are off an average 9.4 percent over 12 months through June.

The good news is the negative showing rate has moderated in recent months from the double digits last fall and earlier this winter.

Sales are down for the year through July a scant 0.6 percent, but if more homes were available at price points people could afford, sales would be higher, according to Wil Riley of the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors.

“The rise in home prices is outpacing income growth,” he said. “In our region, the $53,000 median household income does not align with a median home price that’s climbing toward $300,000.”

Nationally, showings dipped 1.8 percent, and an official with the Showing Index said declines have moderated across much of the nation.

“Activity in the South and Midwest remains slightly slower than in 2018, though there is more buyer activity in the lower price quartiles of the market,” said ShowingTime Chief Analytics Officer Daniil Cherkasskiy. “Pricier homes continue to see less traffic compared to the same time last year.”

It has never been more important to work with a full time, professional Realtor who knows your market.  If I can help, please contact me at Jackie@TheCassinaGroup.com
