Are You Thinking of Living in Kiawah, SC?

Are You Thinking of Living in Kiawah, SC?

Dec 29 |00:00 

Realtor Thursday

A conversation with “Carolina Joe” Idleman, Realtor with AgentOwned Realty Charleston Group, Charleston South Carolina.
 
Kiawah Island is a barrier island along the southern Atlantic coast with ten miles of a wide, flat, sandy beach.  With an average of 207 sunny days, Kiawah Island has a semitropical climate in which the average January temperature is 48 degrees and the average July temperature is 88 degrees.  This island encompasses 10,000 acres, including nearly 45 miles of waterfront highlands overlooking lagoons, marshes, ponds, tidal creeks, the Kiawah River, and the Atlantic Ocean.  The centuries old maritime forest throughout Kiawah Island consists of pines, palms, magnolias, and ancient live oaks.

The People
The town of Kiawah Island was incorporated in 1989 and currently has approximately 1,129 full time residents.  The median age is 65 and nearly 75% of the property owners have a college degree.  The overwhelming majority of the homes on Kiawah Island are second homes.

Going Green
Kiawah Island has held true to the developer’s award winning master plan, which is based on a commitment to the island’s natural beauty and wildlife.  Kiawah Island has been thinking green from its inception and encourages all possible forms of recycling from its employees, residents, vendors, and home construction contractors.   This extraordinary resort/residential community boasts five world class golf courses, a five star resort–The Sanctuary, excellent dining, and privately owned homes, cottages, and villas.  The U.S. Open PGA Golf Tournament will be held at the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island in August 2012.

Our Town
Although Kiawah Island has the feel of a secluded tropical island, it is only 35 minutes from downtown Charleston, South Carolina, which is located in the heart of South Carolina’s lowcountry and has a population of approximately 250,000.  Charleston was one of the largest and wealthiest cities in colonial America due to the agricultural production of rice, cotton, tobacco and indigo.  Charleston, recently named #1 travel destination in Conde Nast Travel magazine, is famous for its historical attractions, arts and cultural events, and fine dining.

Economy and Prices
Homes sales on Kiawah Island have begun to increase this year after three years of decline and the number of homes on the market has significantly decreased.  While prices have continued to slowly decrease, it appears that that this price decline is stabilizing.  With interest rates at historical lows, this is an excellent time to purchase your primary or vacation home on Kiawah Island.

Bio
Visit Kiawah Island and you might make it your home–I did.  The 20+ miles of bike paths, wide sandy beaches, natural environment, and fishing on the surf and tidal creeks lured me to this lovely southern island.  Visit my websites to learn more about Kiawah Island, the process of buying a home, financing, and other helpful information about the Charleston, South Carolina area.  Please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to assist you in your real estate needs on Kiawah Island or the Charleston area.

Charleston SC Real Estate Blog: Charleston Real Estate Market Shows Strength and Stability in 2011

Today’s article is titled:

Charleston SC Real Estate Blog:  Charleston Real Estate Market Shows Strength and Stability in 2011

Sales Volume Up, Stability in Median Price, Inventory moves to new 5-year Low.

According to preliminary figures released by The Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS® (CTAR) 648 homes sold at a median price of $191,500 in November, while inventory declined again to reach a new low of 7,258 homes listed as actively for sale.

Last November, 588 homes sold at a median price of $189,700 as inventory stood nearly 20% higher than the current level.  “The continued decline of inventory is an important factor in maintaining the stability and health of our local market, as we anticipate the addition of bank-owned inventory in the early stages of 2012” said Rob Woodul, 2011 President of CTAR. 

Compared to last November, sales volume is up by 10% and the median home price is a slight 1% higher.
Charleston Real Estate Market Shows Strength and Stability in 2011

“2011 has been a pivotal year for the Charleston real estate market.  Without the support of a tax credit or other incentives, our market had to stand on its own and it did so considerably well.  We’ve had 11 months of relatively stable activity and are beginning to close the gap on prices—which will likely be affected by additional foreclosed inventory next year.  However, continued job growth and economic development in our region should help soften the potential negative effects of that bank-owned inventory” said Woodul.

“This year, local REALTORS® have helped nearly 8,500 individuals or families make an investment in the Charleston area.  Whether the market is up or down, helping people and families find a place to call home only adds to our region’s stability and strengthens our sense of community” said Woodul.

Year-to-date, 8,453 homes have sold at a median price of $180,796, which indicates nearly 5% sales growth and a 3% decline in prices compared to this point in 2010, when just over 8,000 homes had sold at a median price of $187,00.

October Adjustment

Preliminary numbers reported for October 2011 indicated 670 homes sold at a median price of $190,000.  Adjusted numbers now show 677 sales at the same median price. 

BERKELEY COUNTY REAL ESTATE

168 homes sold at a median price of $175,312 in Berkeley County in November—a considerable improvement from last November, when 138 sales resulted in a median price of $169,187. 

The most active area of the county was Goose Creek/Monck’s Corner from Highway 52 to the Cooper River, where 45 homes changed hands at a median price of $164,590.  The most expensive homes in the County can be found on Daniel Island, where the median home price last month was $387,000.  The most affordable homes in Berkeley County are in the area of St. Stephen/Bonneau, where the median home price was $57,900.

CHARLESTON COUNTY REAL ESTATE

335 homes sold at a median price of $225,848 in November in Charleston County; compared to 318 sales at a median price of $236,175 last November. 

Outside of the county’s largest geographic area of Mount Pleasant, where 94 homes sold at a median price of $318,125, the most active area of the county was again, in West Ashley (outside I-526) where 51 homes sold at a significantly increased median price of $198,250.  The most expensive homes in the County sold in the resort community of Wild Dunes, where 9 sales resulted in a median price of $827,900.  The most affordable homes sold in North Charleston (inside I-526) where 16 homes changed hands at a median price of $55,000.

DORCHESTER COUNTY REAL ESTATE

125 homes sold at a median price of $176,000 during November in Dorchester County, which shows a healthy increase in sales volume and notable increase in price, compared to last November’s 112 sales at a median price of $152,136.

The most active area was Summerville/Ridgeville, where 68 homes sold at a median price of $186,400; also making it the most expensive area in November.  The most affordable homes sold in the St. George/Harleyville area, where 4 homes sold at a median price of $112,500.

Charleston SC Real Estate Blog: Choosing a Fixed Rate Loan

Today’s article is titled:

Charleston SC Real Estate Blog:  Choosing a Fixed Rate Loan

Fixed rate loans generally come with one of two options; the 30-Year Fixed and the 15-Year Fixed. If a borrower is planning on being in the same home for a long period of time, a 30-Year Fixed may be more attractive because it offers stability. The monthly payment will remain consistent over the life of the loan. If interest rates are at historic lows at the time the borrower is seeking to obtain financing, this is a good program to consider.

A 15-Year Fixed loan program offers the same stability, but the accelerated amortization schedule makes the monthly payment substantially higher. While the interest rate may be lower on this type of loan, the borrower must be willing to commit to a higher monthly payment. If the borrower wishes to retire in 15 years and be debt-free at that time, this loan program may be more suitable to the borrower's long-term needs.

It is also possible to make pre-payments on a 30-Year loan and reduce the life of the loan, as well as the overall interest payment, without committing to the higher monthly payment of a 15-Year program. As long as there is no pre-payment penalty associated with the 30-Year mortgage, pre-payment offers the borrower the latitude to make additional payments when it is affordable. If cash flow becomes difficult, this arrangement will not put the borrower in a compromising position.

Charleston Real Estate: Avenues of House Hunting

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.

Charleston SC Real Estate: Avenues of House Hunting

With 2012 upon us, the avenues of exploring many industries are continuing to evolve and move forward. The real estate industry is no different, as many agents look to gain more exposure of listings through different ways. While driving around town to look for a property is still done by some, much of the painstaking searching time has now given way to convenience through the internet and mobile technology.

In the Charleston real estate market, which is larger than your normal small town, the convenience of online listings is extremely crucial in 2011. Most real estate agents have access to hundreds of listings at their own site, making it easy and simply to find what you’re looking for in a certain location. Price range fields, location fields and other features allow each search to be specialized for a given location.

An interesting aspect of comes in when reviewing the forms of internet searches. In an area such as Charleston, area realtors will each have access to the MLS on an IDX search. Many also use sites like Trulia or Zillow, which show both Charleston apartments and homes. One aspect is that some real estate searches require a registration process online; however they are certain to get less traffic because of the time that it takes.

Recently, the real estate industry has started to put a lot of resources into the mobile marketing industry. One big aspect of this is the use of text messages in a non spamming manner. Many agents have invested into messaging campaigns, then following leads with personal phone calls. One thing text messages and calls do is generating leads that are usually quality and longer term than your average e-mail.

One of the important aspects for today’s search avenues is that listings are clear and not hiding anything. This means high quality pictures that show a big portion of the property, as well as concise information for each real estate listing.  Because prospective buyers divert their search to the internet, they don’t want to be misled in anyway. This means good information, descriptions and images of each potential home.

Mobile avenues of search and connection with potential buyers also allow real estate agents to have better reporting during the process. Reporting in mobile marketing is successful when it covers certain characteristics such as dates, property info, times and some other information that is beneficial in post observations.

Compared to last November, sales volume is up by 10% and the median home price is a slight 1% higher

Compared to last November, sales volume is up by 10% and the median home price is a slight 1% higher.

“2011 has been a pivotal year for the Charleston real estate market.  Without the support of a tax credit or other incentives, our market had to stand on its own and it did so considerably well.  We’ve had 11 months of relatively stable activity and are beginning to close the gap on prices—which will likely be affected by additional foreclosed inventory next year.  However, continued job growth and economic development in our region should help soften the potential negative effects of that bank-owned inventory” said Woodul.

“This year, local REALTORS® have helped nearly 8,500 individuals or families make an investment in the Charleston area.  Whether the market is up or down, helping people and families find a place to call home only adds to our region’s stability and strengthens our sense of community” said Woodul.

Year-to-date, 8,453 homes have sold at a median price of $180,796, which indicates nearly 5% sales growth and a 3% decline in prices compared to this point in 2010, when just over 8,000 homes had sold at a median price of $187,00.
