It is hard to believe that we’re already one month into the new year! February is here with cooler temps and the Southeastern Wildlife Expo (SEWE). Of course, cooler for Charleston means we might have 2 or 3 days where it doesn’t make it over 50. It is the perfect season for a Low Country oyster roast!

2019 was an incredible year for Charleston’s real estate market. We set a record for transactions by barely surpassing 2017. We had just under 18k transactions with a median sales price of $280k. That median sales price was also a record high for any year and a 3.3% increase over 2018. The median sales price of only single-family detached homes reached a record of $300k. Our sales prices are still below the trend line going back to 1991. That shows that we are still somewhat undervalued and still have room to appreciate.
The Washington Post did a piece on Charleston called Detours with the Locals. SC is 6th in population growth. About 89% of this growth came from folks moving here from other states rather than birth rate increases. Conde Nast’s Travel and Leisure Magazine ranked Charleston as one of top 12 best places to be in winter. Realtor.com forecasted Columbia and Charleston to be 2 of the top 10 housing markets in the US for 2020.
