Charleston, SC January Residential Real Estate Sales Approach 2008 Levels

Charleston, SC January Residential Real Estate Sales Approach 2008 Levels
Charleston Trident Association of Realtors reports that increased market interest and consumer confidence help to fuel strong sales increases and sustainable price growth.

Charleston-area January sales see 5 year high

Charleston-area January sales see 5 year high

634 homes sold at a median price of $181,750 in the Charleston region in January, according to data released by the Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS® (CTAR). These figures represent the highest rate of January sales activity in the region since January 2008, when 648 homes sold. Activity and buyer interest were notably higher during the typically slow first month of the year as many REALTORS® reported a significant increase in calls from prospective buyers.

As sales volume continues to make consistent, sustainable progress, prices remain stable, approaching the $200,000 range, where local REALTORS® and expert economists looking at our region expect them to stay for the short-term future. “As was the case in 2012, we expect to see nominal, but sustainable, growth in prices this year”. “2012 closed out with a 4.4% increase in median price, which is an excellent rate of growth in a recovering market. It’s all about sustainability” said 2013 CTAR President Owen Tyler.
Comparing the beginning of 2012 to 2013, sales volume is up 16% and median price reflects 3% growth thus far in 2013. As the uptick of buyer interest in our market seems to be an enduring trend, inventory may become an issue in some areas. The number of available properties has consistently remained at a lower level than we’ve seen in the past five years, but will likely increase as the spring buying season draws closer. There were 5,520 homes actively for sale in the Charleston Trident Multiple Listing Service (CTMLS) as of January 31, 2013.
During the 2012 Year-In-Review residential market update hosted by CTAR in late January, expert economists Steve Slifer and Joey Von Nessen praised the real estate market activity in our region in 2012, but warned that uncertainty based on what’s going on in the government and Washington DC may have an effect on consumer confidence in 2013.

Builders Tweak Floor Plans for Growing Segment of Buyers

Builders Tweak Floor Plans for Growing Segment of Buyers

Will your next custom home be built for “bounce-backs”? Click on the photo to search Charleston, SC communities real estate for sale

Home builders are changing their floor plans to accommodate more people living under one roof. As adult children and aging parents move in, home owners are finding the need for more defined, separate housing corridors within their homes.  For example, home builder Lennar is expanding the offerings of what it calls the “Next Gen” house. Introduced in western states like California, Arizona, and Texas, Lennar is now taking its “Next Gen” floor plan to North Carolina. The single-family home features a second door, separate from the main entrance, that leads to a 500-square-foot suite for a private residence. There’s also a door inside the main house to access the suite.  “We market it as two homes, one payment,” says Trish Hanchette, Lennar’s Raleigh division president.

Home builders also are finding flexible first-floor space is in high demand. The spaces can be used as a mother-in-law suite or changed into a nursery, extra bedroom, or home office.  Some in the housing industry are also calling some flex rooms “bounce back” rooms — so named for adult children who have moved back in with their parents because they’re struggling to make it on their own.

“The number of 22- to 30-year-olds that are still living at home is at a record high right now,” says Hampton Pitts, an executive vice president with Ashton Woods Homes. “So you have that college graduate that’s back at home looking for a job and maybe got their first job but not ready to be in an ownership or rent situation.”
