Here at Jeff Cook Real Estate we will sell over 500 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 September 2015 to see how we are able to accomplish this.

September was yet again another busy month for Charleston real estate sales. We had increased sales numbers, with decreased available inventory. We saw an increase in the total number of properties under contract from last month as well as a 9% rise from 2014's numbers. The overall days on the market is lower, due to decreased inventory.  Overall, the numbers indicate that it is still a great time to be a home seller in Charleston
