The Charleston real estate market is still raging on with incredibly low inventory and multiple offers. Many properties are selling for much more than their list price. Through April, our market is up 32.2% in number of transactions over the same period last year (March and April of 2020 were slowed by the scare of the pandemic). This past summer, real estate sales in Charleston started going crazy! It will be difficult for us to keep up with those numbers this year simply due to our current lack of inventory. The overall median sales price ($337k) is up 14.9% year from last year. This crazy seller’s market is due in large part to the continued low mortgage rates. Those rates have led to high demand which evolved into to extremely low inventory. These dynamics are true in most American cities right now and some economists are anticipating inflation. That would lead to an increase in mortgage rates which may eventually stabilize buying activity and the housing market.
