Charleston Real Estate Market Update for February 2017

 By Jeff Cook | March 10th, 2017



According to the data released today, the Charleston real estate market is holding steady in the beginning of 2017. Other than the change of another month and year, little else is changed in residential real estate both nationally and locally. Here at Jeff Cook Real Estate we plan to sell 1,080 homes in 2017 while still being able to earn 98% of asking price on average for our clients. Let's take a look at the real estate statistics for February 2017 to see how we are able to accomplish this. 


Bottom Line


In February we had 11.7% more sales pending than this time last year. That's a good growth. There has also been a 3.2% increase of listings on the market than this time last year. Median sales prices are up 11.7% from last year indicating that we are still in a seller's market..
