Charleston Home Prices: It’s About Supply & Demand

Buyer Info

Charleston buyer's agent Shawn Pillion

The Charleston real estate market continues to heat up as we head into the summer.

Will this increase in demand equate to an increase in home prices? That depends.

Remember, the price of any item is determined by the supply of and demand for that item at any point in time.

Russell would corner the suspect -– a homeless man who allegedly had entered a car wielding a pocket knife and demanded a ride from a woman driver.

Both Wilson and Russell acknowledge that this was out of the ordinary. Bu...
