Charleston Real Estate Market Update for January 2016

Charleston Real Estate Market Update for January 2016

 By Jeff Cook | February 12, 2016



According to the data released this week, the Charleston real estate market is still going strong as we enter 2016. 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 will sell over 700 homes this year 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 December 2015 to see how we are able to accomplish this. 


Bottom Line


In January we had 30.4% more sales pending than this time last year. That's a HUGE growth. There are also 20.8% fewer listings on the market than this time last year. Median sales prices are up 3.3% from last year showing that we are staying in a SELLER'S MARKET in 2016.
