CHARLESTON, SC—(August 10, 2016) 1,643 homes sold during July in the region at a median price of $240,000 according to preliminary data released today by the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors® (CTAR). In July 2015, 1,691 homes sold at a median price of $237,269. This data reflects a 2.8% decrease in sales volume and 1.5% growth in median price, comparing last July to this July.
Year-to-date figures show 10,303 homes sold in 2016 at a median price of $239,000 in the region. Comparing 2015 figures to 2016 thus far, year-to-date sales volume has increased 7% and median price has grown by 8.1%.
Inventory has declined by 22% over the last 12-month period, with 5,335 homes listed as “active” for sale in the Charleston Trident Multiple Listing Service (CTMLS) as of July 31.
“The sales dip can be attributed to several factors. The current lack of inventory is certainly a major reason. Over the last 3 years, sales have peaked in June and this year is no exception,” said 2016 CTAR President Michael Sally. “The year-to-date numbers are strong, and a sign of steady growth. We should see similar, sustainable numbers over the next few months.”
