Review of the July 2016 Charleston Real Estate Market

Monday, August 1, 2016

Blog, Buying a Home, News, Real Estate Guide, Selling a Home


It’s hard to believe that it’s already August and the summer is going to be winding down shortly. As the beginning of the school year approaches, we are continuing to see a heavy push of closings and homes going under contract.

Inventory

Like we said last month, it should not come as any surprise at this point that the number of homes for sale (inventory) is continuing to decline. July saw the absolute lowest point of inventory since January of 2006 (!!). The number of homes available in July 2016 was 5,139. In comparison, in January of 2006 there were 5,739 homes available on the MLS and just last month, June 2016, there were 5,546 homes available.

Average Sales Price

In addition to the inventory decreasing, we also saw the average sales price take a downturn from June of 2016. June’s average sales price for the Charleston tri-county area was $347,494, and in July 2016 that number dropped to $312,655. It is important to note though, that July 2016’s average sales price is very comparable to July 2015’s average sales price, which was $312,421. Our MLS data allows us to track back to January of 2004, and June 2016’s average sales price was the highest it has been in the Charleston tri-county MLS for all data available to us.

Closed Sales

In real estate, in typically takes between 30-60 days for a home to actually close. There are some factors that can change this though, including: short sales, cash sales, and other types of financing, however, if a buyer is obtaining a mortgage you can expect a 30-45 day close, and in some cases 60 days. When we look at the closed sales, it’s important to note that the sales that are actually accounted for as “closed” this month, actually went under contract anywhere from 30-60 days ago (more than likely they went under contract in June 2016). There were a total of 1,543 closed sales during July 2016, a decrease from the 1,932 closed sales in June. We can expect to see “closed sales” dropping in number as we get closer to the time school goes back.

Days on Market and % of List Price Sold

There are two other numbers we’d like to take a look at this month, those include: the average number of days on the market for a home and the percent of list price in which the home sold.

For July 2016 a home in the Charleston tri-county area was on the market for an average of 54 days. In June of 2016 that number was 55 days, and at its highest point this year was 72 days in February of 2016. When inventory decreases and there is less product for buyers to buy, we will see the number of days on market reach all time lows due to that lack of inventory. July’s number of 54 days was the lowest number of days on the market so far in 2016. Just to compare, like we did above for inventory, in January of 2006 the average days on market for a home was 52. The lowest number of days on market from January of 2006 to now, was August of 2015 where the average days on market was 50.

Number of Days on Market Charleston SC Real Estate

In addition to the number of days on market, we also wanted to share the average percent of the original list price that a home will sell for in the Charleston tri-county area. You can typically expect that with low inventory, homes will sell as close to their original list price as possible. However, what that doesn’t take into consideration is if a home was overpriced and then reduced in price in order to sell, this number will still only tell us the percent of the original list price in which the home sold. In July of 2016, homes closed at 96.8% of list price, in June of 2016 homes closed for 97% of the original list price. June’s number was the highest percent of list price for 2016.

Review of the June 2016 Charleston Real Estate Market

Monday, July 18, 2016

Blog, Buying a Home, News, Real Estate Guide, Selling a Home


We’re reviewing the June 2016 Charleston real estate market. Below is a look at the declining inventory, increasing sales price, and increase in the number of closed sales over May 2016.

Inventory

It shouldn’t be any surprise at this point that inventory is steadily declining. The number of homes available for sale on the MLS declines each month, and in June of 2016 the total number of homes available for sale was 5,377. In May of 2016 there were 5,630, so that is a decrease of 253 homes in 30 days.

June 2016 Inventory of Homes

Closed Sales

From May 2016 to June 2016 there was an increase in the number of homes closed. In June there were a total of 1,929 closed sales, an increase of 222 closed sales from May of 2016. The increase in the number of closed sales also correlates to the declining inventory numbers.

June 2016 Closed Home Sales

Sales Price

In May 2016 the average sales price in the Charleston Trident MLS was $327,084. In June, that number rose to an average sales price of $347,447. In just 30 days this was an average sales price increase of $20,363! With the decreasing inventory, the average sales price also continues to rise because of the lack of available supply.

Lorelei Development on Upper Charleston Peninsula

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Blog, Current Events, Explore Charleston


Lorelei Charleston South Carolina Development

Monday night we had the pleasure of attending the first of many developer town hall-style events for the new Lorelei development located in the heart of downtown Charleston’s Upper Peninsula. The event was hosted and held at Edmund’s Oast and coordinated by Lou Hammond & Associates and Fuzzco.

During the hour and a half long event, discussion was led by Mark Toro, Jeff Speck and Andres Duany, all key players in the development of  Lorelei. The purpose of this meeting was to introduce Charlestonian’s to the Lorelei project, give insight to the people in the community of how the leaders of the project thought about urban planning, and serve as a platform for community members to voice their opinions of the project.

Lorelei Development in Charleston South Carolina

The proposed project, Lorelei, is a 160-acre undeveloped tract of land on Laurel Island. The site sits on the banks of the Cooper River, at the end of Romney Street. The site offers stunning and highly coveted views of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. bridge and an unbeatable location on the Upper Peninsula, but the location also provides a quick commute to other areas of Charleston.

The project is to be developed by North American Properties, who plans to put $1 billion towards the new development. The development will be a mix-use community including residential, retail, restaurants, multi-family, hotel, biking and walking paths, a possible ferry-like system, and office space. The developers are aiming for a community that will encompass restaurants with outdoor patios and hopefully outdoor recreation and event venues such as an amphitheater. Developers were unable to answer questions regarding the cost of housing in Lorelei at this time. Toro did however state that he would expect the cost to purchase a home at Lorelei being a small fraction of the homes South of Broad.

Lorelei Development Chat in Charleston, South Carolina

Project leaders Toro, Duany and Speck, all armed with impressive careers and an ongong list of accomplishments and notable projects, talked in-depth of their vision for Lorelei. Mark Toro spoke about how Lorelei would be the opportunity of a lifetime for those involved. They also spoke of the additional 300,000 people that Charleston, SC could see in the next 11 years, and how the Lorelei project could accommodate 3-4% of this increase. The developers concept really comes down to the sidewalks though. All 3 project leaders talked about the concept of open air patios and amphitheaters, hoping that Lorelei would resemble something from Europe with sidewalk cafes and people spending more time outside than they do inside. Toro, Duany and Speck also talked about how they would hope that Lorelei would become more of a walking community, instead of one that relies on cars.

Lorelei Development in Charleston South Carolina Event

Overall, Lorelei and the developers first event was a success and it ended up being standing room only.  The project is currently in its beginning stages, and developers are planning on holding more forums like this one as they hope to actively engage the Charleston community Charlestonian’s seemed to be in support of the development and were very receptive to the fact that Toro, Duany and Speck wanted to hold events such as this one to gather input from the community and rid the idea of “big bad developers”. We are expecting another event from the developers some time in October.

Everyone is encouraged to interact with Lorelei on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and use the hashtag #imagineCHS to join in the conversation.
