202PittStreet-KeenEyeMarketing-2 (1)

HOME IS AVAILABLE FOR $2,150,000

Circa 1892, this home has withstood the test of time and is now available for purchase for the first time in over 50 years!  Known as the Hale-Seabrook house, 202 Pitt Street in one of the Old Village’s most recognizable homes.  The dignified 4400 square foot estate is a blend of old and new, and is located just steps from the Pitt Street Shopping district.  No historical feature has been removed.

Built by lumberman Harry Hale in 1892 the home was later sold to John G. Seabrook, who recognized its superior quality and vast potential.  Mr. Seabrook hired a master carpenter and contractor to renovate the home, which was lifted and repositioned to face Pitt Street.  Creating the home’s grand style, he also added the beautiful brick-lined walkway and portico, flanked by four dramatic two-story columns (which were reclaimed from a mill in Marion, SC) topped with a stunning entryway door with curved transom and sidelights.  The home has been lovingly maintained and was renovated in 2005 (kitchen/ den, etc) to reflect a modern feel while maintaining the architectural history.

The traditional floor plan features a formal living room, formal dining room, updated kitchen, adjoining den, and guest bedroom on the first floor.  The remaining 3 bedrooms are located upstairs, including the master suite and deck overlooking Pitt Street.  There is also a finished basement with a second kitchen, built in bar plus garage doors leading to an outdoor kitchen- perfect for entertaining.  You will love the traditional antique heart pine flooring, original clear cypress walls, classic crown molding, 10 foot ceilings and more!

202 PItt Street is listed for $2,150,000 by Jackie Kelly, REALTOR® with The Cassina Group.  For more details, contact Jackie@TheCassinaGroup.com or visit www.SearchOldVillage.com.

Charleston Market To Outpace Averages

Economists Expect the Charleston Real Estate Market to Outpace National Averages Through 2025

CHARLESTON, SC—(December 11, 2019) The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) identified 10 markets expected to outperform over the next three to five years. In alphabetical order, the markets are:
• Charleston, South Carolina
• Charlotte, North Carolina
• Colorado Springs, Colorado
• Columbus, Ohio
• Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas
• Fort Collins, Colorado
• Las Vegas, Nevada
• Ogden, Utah
• Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, North Carolina
• Tampa-St. Petersburg, Florida
“Some markets are clearly positioned for exceptional longer term performance due to their relative housing affordability combined with solid local economic expansion,” said NAR’s Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. “Drawing new residents from other states will also further stimulate housing demand in these markets, but this will create upward price pressures as well, especially if demand is not met by increasing supply.”
NAR identified the top 10 metro areas based on domestic migration, housing affordability for new residents, consistent job growth relative to the national average, population age structure, attractiveness for retirees and home price appreciation, among other variables. As an indicator of strong housing demand in these markets in the past three years, home prices in these 10 metro areas have increased annually by at least 7%.
1,332 homes sold in November in the Charleston region at a median price of $268,000 according to preliminary data released today by the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors® (CTAR). Last November, 1,301 homes sold at a median price of $268,453.
This year’s 17,010 closings show transactions up almost 1% and median price up 5%, to $277,900 for the region.

There are 17% fewer homes for sale than at this point last year, with 5,265 homes listed as “active” for sale in the CHS Regional MLS database at the end of November.

Newly installed 2020 CTAR President Bobette Fisher said, “The economists’ expectation for Charleston to continue outperforming other markets is a tremendous recognition for our region—we have been enjoying many years of economic expansion and growth, with new people moving to our area every day and keeping Charleston a growing, vibrant community. However, affordability and sustainability remain the chief concerns for our growing market”

“We check all the boxes that make Charleston a top performer—but we have to keep market sustainability top of mind” said CTAR CEO Wil Riley. “We’re well positioned for more growth on many fronts—jobs, population and our economy is strong—but if we do not focus on developing smart growth strategies, we’ll price those who are coming here for those jobs out of the market” he said.

“Meeting the demands of the future will be a challenge” said Fisher. “This is why as an Association we are committed to creating and maintaining partnerships with municipalities to help craft smart growth strategies and place development where it makes sense and where it contributes to increasing the quality of life for all residents” she said.

January 2017 Home Sales On The Rise

The 2017 market starts off strong, as home sales in the Charleston Region continue to rise.  In a market of low interest rates, a surplus of buyers and low inventory, sales prices continue to rise as well as the number of homes sold.  Here is the latest Market Update, provided by the Charleston Trident Association Of Realtors®. 

CHARLESTON, SC—(February 10, 2017) According to preliminary data released today by the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors® (CTAR) 1,029 homes sold in January in the region at a median price of $238,900. Last January, 972 homes sold at a median price of $218,020.  This marks the twelfth consecutive month that sales in the region have surpassed 1,000 homes and the first time in a decade that January sales have exceeded that benchmark.

Comparing the first month of 2017 to last year, sales volume has increased 6% and buyers are paying 9.5% more for homes in the region than they did last year.

Inventory has declined about 20% over the last 12-month period, with 4,746 homes listed as “active” for sale in the Charleston Trident Multiple Listing Service (CTMLS) as of January 31.  We expect that inventory will begin increasing slightly in the coming months.

“We are pleased to see the residential market starting on such solid ground in 2017” said 2017 CTAR President Dave Sansom.  “Last year was a strong year of growth in our market and starting the year with such substantial increases bodes well for both buyers and sellers. We’re poised to see another year of consistent growth in our market, supported by the flourishing local economy” he concluded.

Charleston County
500 homes sold at a median price of $308,750 in January in Charleston County. There are currently 2,545 residential properties for sale in Charleston County—1,920 single-family homes and 625 condos/townhomes.
