Rising Rates Could Get Buyers Moving

The Charleston, South Carolina area is a great place to live or have a vacation home.  The weather is great, the beaches are fantastic,golf courses are abundant, there are many historical sites, the architecture is unbelievable, the dining is unbeatable, and the people are the friendliest in the country.  It is because of these reasons that I believe Charleston SC Real Estate is truly unique.  I look forward to helping you with any of your Charleston SC Real Estate needs in Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester counties. Today’s article is titled:

Rising Rates Could Get Buyers Moving

Ironically, it could be rising interest rates that finally push home buyers off the fence and into the market.

While Congress is debating the tax-cut compromise, the financial markets have interpreted the proposal as a development that will likely push mortgage interest rates higher than they have been for months.

Analysts are predicting that buyers will move quickly when it looks like rates are going up and are unlikely to come down. "Once people see this might actually be the bottom, they’ll go for it," says Paul Dales of Capital Economics.

The average rate for a 30-year fixed loan increased to 4.61 percent in the week ended Thursday, Dec. 9, from 4.46 percent the previous week. The average 15-year rate rose to 3.96 percent from 3.81 percent.

Current owner would use the buy-in to make improvements to the property to increase cash flow, including a tie in the a new sewage system being brought into the area. Commercial lot on Hwy 17 may be used for other purposes. Thousands of cars per day pass this site and seller feels a restaurant or other business may be lucrative.

Market Indicators for November 2010

The Charleston, South Carolina area is a great place to live or have a vacation home.  The weather is great, the beaches are fantastic,golf courses are abundant, there are many historical sites, the architecture is unbelievable, the dining is unbeatable, and the people are the friendliest in the country.  It is because of these reasons that I believe Charleston SC Real Estate is truly unique.  I look forward to helping you with any of your Charleston SC Real Estate needs in Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester counties. Today’s article is titled:

Market Indicators for November 2010

There are billions of dollars in capital parked against the wall, skates on, patiently waiting for just the right song to dance pairs to. Job growth figures already an uplifting tune for November skaters.  With interest rates maintaining at record lows and the 2010 tax credit now yesterday's fashion, let's look at what’s happening in our local market.

The 667 Pending Sales in the Charleston represented a 15.0 percent increase over last November, and Median Sales Price was up as well, by 10.9 percent to $193,000.

The number of New Listings fell 10.7 percent to 1,087. The mix of buyer and seller activity pushed the Total Active Listings for Sale to 8,802 at months end, a decrease of 12.4 percent from last year. This also helped to bring down Months’ Supply of Inventory – which should ideally fall between five and six – to 11.5 months, down 18.6 percent.

The national housing market continued to stabilize on the heels of some of the most positive economic news since the Great Recession began in December 2007. As foreclosures continue to unlace and exit the arena, the increased share of traditional sales coupled with greater consumer purchasing power should lift home prices and foster a balanced marketplace

Residential Real Estate Sales Volume Decreases, Median Price Remains Stable In November

The Charleston, South Carolina area is a great place to live or have a vacation home.  The weather is great, the beaches are fantastic, golf courses are abundant, there are many historical sites, the architecture is unbelievable, the dining is unbeatable, and the people are the friendliest in the country.  It is because of these reasons that I believe Charleston SC Real Estate is truly unique.  I look forward to helping you with any of yourCharleston SC Real Estate needs in Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester counties.

Residential Real Estate Sales Volume Decreases, Median Price Remains Stable In November


According to preliminary data from the Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS® (CTAR) 588 homes sold at a median price of $189,700 during the month of November.

Sales volume is 25% lower than November of 2009, when the original tax credit deadline of November 30 spurred an unprecedented number of sales (783).

Median price remained stable at $189,700—a slight variation (3%) from October’s median price of $194,785 and a healthy 10% higher than November 2009’s median price of $173,000, when buyer activity was heavily concentrated in the typically lower first-time buyer price range.

“We expected to see sales volume down in this quarter compared to last year.  Sales are no longer being supported by the appeal of the tax credit, so it’s not surprising that sales decreased.   Looking at the big picture, year-to-date sales are higher this year than last, and prices have shown stability over the last several months, which is encouraging for the market’s continued recovery,” said Rob Woodul, 2011 President of the Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS®.

Year-to-date, sales are 6% ahead of this point last year and median prices have fluctuated very little over the last 11 months—from a peak of $199,055 in August to a low of $179,900 in February.  The year-to-date median price is 4% higher than it was at the end of November 2009.

At the end of November, the number of homes listed as actively for sale with the Charleston Trident Multiple Listing Service (MLS) was 8,802.

BERKELEY COUNTY

138 homes sold at a median price of $169,187 in November.  The median home price for 196 sales in November 2009 was $154,700.

CHARLESTON COUNTY

In Charleston County, median price jumped to $236,175 for the 318 homes that sold in November.  Last year, 361 homes changed hands at a median price of $225,000.

DORCHESTER COUNTY

Dorchester County data showed a median price of $152,136 from 112 sales.  Last November, 199 properties sold at a median price of $150,000.

OCTOBER 2010 ADJUSTMENT

Preliminary numbers reported for October 2010 indicated 630 homes sold at a median price of $194,887. Adjusted numbers now show 657 sales at a median price of $194,785.
