Charleston Real Estate- Rent or Buy?

Buyer Info

Rent Increases Expected to Continue through 2015 | Keeping Current Matters

 Wondering whether you should keep renting or go ahead and buy some Charleston SC real estate?

CNBC’s Diana Olick recently reported that rents in the residential housing sector continued to rise in 2014. She interviewed Jed Kolko, Chief Economist at Trulia, who revealed:

"Rents are rising because of strong demand that supply hasn't kept up with. Nearly all the new households are renters, and young people moving out of their parents' homes will keep fueling rental demand."

Where are rents headed in 2015?

The question now is where rents will be heading over the next twelve months. In a press release last week, Zillow chief economist Dr. Stan Humphries predicted residential rental ...

Worried About Flood Insurance? Would You Really Need it?

Buyer Info

Do I need Flood Insurance?

Everyday we hear buyers and sellers talking about flood insurance on their Charleston real estate. But what's the big deal? We all know lenders require flood insurance when their money is on the line... but do you really need flood insurance? What if your new Charleston Real Estate isn't on Folly or IOP? What if you're not even in a flood zone and you live in Summerville?

Well NOAA has just let the ink dry on their new Storm Surge Inundation website with an interactive map! That's right, you can find your house on the map and see what would happen if a hurricane of varying degrees hit Charleston at high tide.

Charleston Real Estate Trends YTD September 2014

Buyer Info
So.... How's the Charleston Real Estate market fairing in 2014?
 
With some help from our neighborhood statistician, Doug Holmes, we have posted a chart below outlining what's going on. Mt Pleasant and West Ashley have been VERY strong!
Overall, we are up 5.9% in terms of number of transactions over this same period from 2013.  
We look to be on a pace to sell over 13k homes this year.
A few areas are actually down in number of sales, but this sometimes has more to do with lack of inventory to sell.
The median sales price is at $222k, which is up 6.5% over the same period from 2013.
While median sales prices are now higher than they were at the peak of the market in 2007, ther...

Still a Great Time to Buy a Home…but HURRY!!

Still a Great Time to Buy a Home…but HURRY!! | Keeping Current Matters

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kevin Kelly, Chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), recently explained that:

“With interest rates near historically low levels and strengthening job growth, now continues to be a great opportunity to buy a home.”


We couldn’t agree more. However, we must realize that, with prices and interest rates both projected to increase, waiting could cost us.

There are two organizations that look at the affordability of purchasing and actually measure it over time. The National Association of Home Builders has their Housing Opportunity Index (HOI) and the National Association of Realtors’ has the...

A New Starbucks in West Ashley- Good Karma for ChuckTown Homes Real Estate?

Buyer Info

We here at ChuckTown Homes take a lot of pride in our quasi Avondale location and spend a lot of time patronizing the local bars and restaurants close to our World Headquarters on Savannah Highway. Sometimes that patronage takes on the form of lunch at Andolini's- although admittedly it's never our first choice. The convenience of walking right across the street trumps our better judgement of eating at a restaurant with facilities that are falling apart. Overlooking the crumbling facade, the employees are always nice and the pizza is great!

With such a killer location and a great product we have wondered why it looks like no one at Andolini's is fixing up the building- and now we have ...

Buying Charleston Real Estate? What is the Cost of Waiting?

Buyer Info

Whether you are a first time buyer or a move-up buyer, you should look at the projections housing experts are making in two major areas: home prices and mortgage rates.

PRICES

Over 100 economists, real estate experts and investment & market strategists were recently surveyed. They were asked to project where home prices were headed. The average value appreciation projected over the next twelve month period was approximately 4%.

MORTGAGE INTEREST RATES

In their last Economic & Housing Market Outlook, Freddie Mac predicted that 30 year fixed mortgage rates would be 4.8% by this time next year. As of last week, the Freddie Mac rate was 4.14%.

What does this mean to you?
