Drop in Charleston Real Estate Fueling Price Increases in 2018

Fri, May 25th 2018 11:01 am by Shawn Pillion Buyer Info
On the real estate front, the number of transactions year to date is almost the exact same as last year. However, the median sales price is up 7.2% over the same period to an all time high of $265k. That’s a pretty heady number. The last couple of years have seen more modest gains of around 4%. Many people are asking if this is the warning of another bubble. But remember, real estate doesn’t ever really go down.

Charleston Real Estate Inventory 2018

Well it did once, in 2008. But that was an anomaly. There was a good reason for that and it was nationwide. Don’t expect prices to go down again. Economies go into recession and this causes real estate to go flat. Sometimes you may see your real estate value stay co...

Thu, Mar 15th 2018 12:50 pm by Shawn Pillion Buyer Info

Moving up Is MORE Affordable Now Than Almost Any Other Time in 40 Years

Charleston Real Estate Affordability
If you are considering selling your current home, to either move up to a larger home or into a home in an area in Charleston SC that better suits your current family needs, great news was just revealed.

Last week, Trulia posted a blog, Not Your Father’s Housing Market, which examined home affordability over the last 40+ years (1975-2016). Their research revealed that:

“Nationally, homes are just about the most affordable they’ve been in the last 40 years… the median household could afford a home 1.5 times more expensive than the median home price. In 1980, the median household could only afford about 3/4 of the med...

The Real Reason Charleston Home Prices are Increasing

Thu, Nov 30th 2017 10:31 am by Shawn Pillion Buyer Info
The Real Reason Charleston SC Home Prices are Increasing

There are many unsubstantiated theories as to why Charleston and Summerville home values are continuing to increase. From those who are worried that lending standards are again becoming too lenient (data shows this is untrue), to those who are concerned that prices are again approaching boom peaks because of “irrational exuberance” (this is also untrue as prices are not at peak levels when they are adjusted for inflation), there seems to be no shortage of opinion.

However, the increase in prices is easily explained by the theory of supply & demand. Whenever there is a limited supply of an item that is in high demand, prices increase.

It is that simple. In real estate, it takes a six-m...

Be Careful Not to Get Caught in The Charleston Rental Trap!

Tue, Aug 1st 2017 10:53 am by Shawn Pillion Buyer Info

Be careful not to get caught in the Cahrleston SC rental trap!

There are many benefits to homeownership in Charleston SC. One of the top benefits is being able to protect yourself from rising rents by locking in your housing cost for the life of your mortgage.

Don’t Become Trapped 

A recent article by ConsumerAffairs addressed the continuous rise in rents, stating:

“The cost of putting a roof over your head continues to go up. Not only are home prices still rising, but the cost of rent rose 0.5% in June.”

Additionally, in the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University’s 2017 State of the Nation’s Housing Report, it was revealed that,

“Despite a slight improvement from 2014, fully one-third of US households paid more than 3...

High End Charleston Real Estate in a Buyer's Market??

Wed, Jun 28th 2017 11:47 am by Shawn Pillion Buyer Info

Buyer's Market Helps Premium Home Sales Soar | Keeping Current Matters

We previously reported how a shortage of inventory in the starter and trade-up home markets is driving prices up and causing bidding wars, creating a true seller’s market. At the same time, in the premium home market, an over-abundance of inventory has started to see prices come down and put buyers in the driver’s seat, creating the beginning of a buyer’s market.

Last week, the National Association of Realtors released their Existing Home Sales Report which shed some additional light on the impact of inventory levels on sales in each price range.

The chart below shows the year-over-year difference in sales at each price range.
