Charleston Real Estate Market Update

While 2016 was our 2nd busiest year ever for Charleston Real Estate, 2017 has really started off with a bang. January was the busiest January we ever had. Inventory is on the low side and demand is very high. This could lead to prices going up even more. Currently, we are still below the trend line back to 1991, but that may change soon if the inventory stays this low.

Fortunately, they are building lots of new construction all over the area. No one wants to leave and lots of people want to move to our great economy and lifestyle. They are finishing construction on the new I-26 exit near Jedburg for the new Volvo plant. Volvo has started taking applications. Employees at Boeing just voted down the union and President Trump made a planned visit the next day.

The remodeling of the airport is finished and it’s fantastic. The airport has a Caviar and Bananas, Golden Bear Grill, Charleston Beer Works, Harvest and Grounds and others. Top Chef finally had its season in Charleston and it was a huge success. The culinary life is thriving here. At this rate, we may soon be BBQ capital of the US. I’ve never seen so many BBQ places and they are all exceptional.
