The dog days of August are upon us. It’s getting very warm out there! Charleston was named the Top City in the US by Conde Nast Travel and Leisure Magazine for the 8th consecutive year. Charleston came in at 18 for the best cities in the World. Our real estate market has been extremely busy. Our previous record for buying activity was in the spring of 2018 when 458 residential properties went under contract in one week. It has usually been about 400-425 each week in the spring over the past few years. However, each of the last 12 weeks has surpassed that record from 2018. And we’ve gone over 500 several times. In the middle of a pandemic, that’s pretty amazing. We think that many people from the northeast have decided it’s time to get out of there and move to the best city in the US. Many are buying without actually coming to see the home. They are relying simply on the 3D visual tour because of the travel restrictions. 2019 was a record year for Charleston real estate sales, but 2020 seems on a pace now to surpass that. But who knows what tomorrow brings in this crazy world. We are starting to see a few events pop up here and there. Here is your August calendar:
