Is The Market Stabilizing?
Interesting article by Warren Wise with The Post & Courier. In short he states that the median price for a house in the Charleston area is about $400,000, which is up $50,000 over the past year, and $120,000 since the start of the pandemic.
The article goes on to reference my (extremely knowledgeable) Broker-In- Charge, Owen Tyler, who indicates that the market appears to be stabilizing. And by that, he is referring to less multiple offers, more days on market, and less overall transactions. Prices have not leveled off and according to the data, that s not expected to happen in the near future.
The single most important thing to remember when it comes to understanding the market, is that all real estate is local, down to your neighborhood… down to your street. I specialize in this local market, so if I can help answer any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at Jackie@TheCassinaGroup.com.
Sold! 110 Freeman Street- Old Village, Mt. Pleasant
I am so happy for my buyers who found the perfect place to call home!
Below is a recap of the Charleston Real Estate Market, information provided by the South Carolina Association of Realtors and reflects July 2022.
The U.S. housing market has continued to cool, as rising mortgage rates and record high sales prices have stifled affordability, weakening demand and pricing out a multitude of buyers. Nationally, median household income has failed to keep pace with increasing mortgage payments, with the costs of buying a home about 80% more expensive now than they were just three summers ago, according to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).
As more and more prospective buyers find their home purchase plans delayed, many are turning to the rental market, where competition has intensified due to increased demand.
- New Listings were down 7.9 percent to 11,981
- Pending Sales decreased 22.0 percent to 8,014
- Inventory grew 36.3 percent to 18,377 units
- Prices moved higher as Median Sales Price was up 17.6 percent to $323,272
- Days on Market decreased 2.4 percent to 40 days
- Months Supply of Inventory was up 46.2 percent to 1.9 months
At a time of year when home buying activity is typically very strong, soaring homeownership costs have caused home sales to decline nationwide for the fifth consecutive month, with existing-home sales falling 5.4% month-to-month and14.2% year-over-year as of last measure, according to NAR.
But there is a bright spot. Inventory of existing homes has continued to climb this summer, with 1.26 million homes available at the beginning of July, equivalent to a 3 months’ supply. And despite the summer slowdown, homes are still selling quickly, with the typical home staying on market an average of 14 days.
