The Charleston real estate market continues to have one of its best years ever. It’s quite possible that 2019 will break the records set in 2017. We’re about even with 2017 and 2018 year to date in terms of transactions, but the fall of 2018 was somewhat weak. We anticipate a better finish to the year in 2019. Median sales price is up to a record high of $282k and up 4.4% YTD over the same 2018 period. The economy continues to be robust. The building of the Volvo plant in the Jedburg area near Moncks Corner has led to a huge boom there. North Charleston outside of Hwy 526 and Mt Pleasant outside of the IOP connector have also seen a 10% growth in sales YTD over the same 2018 period. All areas of the economy seem to be doing well. Internet software and technology companies continue to be a huge hit here in Silicon Harbor. Of course, tourism and the craft beer industry marches on at a steady beat. October is here and the fall weather is going to be incredible. Weather good enough for the IOP and James Island Connector Runs as well as the Kiawah Marathon. Chris Stapleton, Chicago, George Thorogood and many others will be in town to serenade us. And oyster season begins!! Boone Hall has their Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze all month. Here is a calendar of October events:
