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 Charleston Real Estate... but Hurry!!

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 ...

Mount Pleasant 2014 Real Estate Update

Buyer Info

Wondering what's happening in Mt Pleasant Real Estate so far this year?

CTAR has just released some new reports that show the market is doing quite well. South of the IOP connector, inventory levels are extremely low right now. If you have been thinking of selling- now is the time. If you want to buy a house in Old Mount Pleasant be prepared to wait, make a quick offer, and make it for full asking price or higher!

Check out this 2014 Lower Mount Pleasant Real Estate Chart:

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?

If you are a f...

5 Reasons to Sell Your Charleston Home Right Now!

Buyer Info

5 Reasons to Sell Now | The KCM Crew

Many Charleston SC real estate sellers are still hesitant about putting their house up for sale. Where are prices headed? Where are interest rates headed? Can buyers qualify for a mortgage?  These are all valid questions. However, there are several reasons to sell your home sooner rather than later. Here are five of those reasons.

1. Demand is Strong

There is currently a pent-up demand of purchasers as many home buyers pushed off their search this past winter & early spring because of extreme weather. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the number of buyers in the market, which feel off dramatically in December, January and February, has begun to increase ag...

Create Wealth- Invest in Charleston Real Estate and Move Up Now!

Buyer Info

Create Wealth: Move Up Now!! | ChuckTown Homes Real Estate

Many experts are currently discussing a variety of topics such as real estate as an investment, the movement on mortgage interest rates and reasons to buy now instead of waiting. It is important that we realize that this does not apply solely to the first time home buyer.

The opportunity that exists in real estate today is there for everyone.

However, the family that already owns a home might be thinking that, if they wait, their home could be worth more next year than it is now. And that may cause them to delay moving up to the home of their dreams thinking it makes good financial sense. Actually, the opposite is true. This is the best chance a family has to buy up into the home that...
