Real estate sales in Charleston continue to slow mostly due to the rise in mortgage rates. However, it was our third busiest year in history, only exceeded by the last two years of insanity. In terms of number of transactions, 2022 was down almost 20% compared to 2021. We had a little less than 19k transactions in 2022 compared to a little over 23k in 2021. December 2022 was down 37% compared to December 2021. Our median sales price however was up 14% in 2022. In fact, over the last two years, Charleston saw its median sales price rise from $305k to $405k. That’s a 33% increase in two years!
