Just Sold – 813 Pitt Street

Happy Fall!  So happy to close 813 Pitt Street!  The sellers were a dream to work with and I am so grateful to have met them and to be a part of this time in their lives.  Happy sellers, indeed.  Oh, and happy buyers too!

A kind note from the sellers:  Our experience with Jackie Kelly and the Cassina Group could not have been better.  Our home was an older home in a market that was filled with competition from new homes and fresh renovations.  Jackie sensed the love we had for our home and knew that we wanted another family to have the experience we did in raising our children there.  She represented the home as if it were hers.  Through a lot of ups and downs, she guided us to the unique buyer we hoped we’d find.  She was always available and extremely prompt with everything and anything we needed.  She is a professional and full-time realtor who knows what she is doing.  We highly recommend her to anyone needing a realtor.  We loved our experience with her, her assistant, Melissa, and the entire Cassina Group.

813 Pitt Street closed on October 29 for $1,258,250.

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!

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.
