Spring is here and there are lots of outdoor activities. The Cooper River Bridge Run, the Volvo Women's Tennis Tournament, and the Blessing of the Fleet are the highlights of a busy April. The azaleas will be in bloom and the Summerville Flowertown Festival is always a favorite. Our real estate market got off to a rocky start in January. Jan of 2019 was 16% less busy than Jan of 2018. However, we correctly suspected that may have been due to the government shutdown. We bounced back with a strong February and now we are only down about 3% in terms of transactions year to date compared with the same 2018 time period. Feb 2019 was up 32% over Jan 2019 in terms of transactions. Feb 2019 was up 10% over Feb 2018. The median sales price is up 3.8% to $272k YTD. The economy is booming here. Tourism, Boeing, Volvo, Mercedes Sprint Vans, breweries and distilleries and great restaurants are driving the economy and the real estate market. The weather is pleasant most of the year and we are getting a lot of recognition. We are regularly voted #1 City in the US by Travel and Leisure Magazine. It’s a great time to be in Charleston.
