March is here and we should be seeing better weather and some more outdoor activities.  The Wine and Food event is the big March happening.  Charleston has become many things to many people over the last 10-15 years, but food has been a big part of everything.  Of course, Savannah is well known for its St Patrick’s Day celebrations, but Charleston will have plenty of that as well.

The Charleston real estate market has gotten off to its fastest start ever in 2020.  2019 was a record-setting year in terms of the number of transactions and the median sales price.  January of 2019 was fantastic; however, January 2020 was up 22.3% over Jan 2019 in terms of transactions!!  And the median sales price was up 7.8% to an all-time high of $291k.  If January and February are any indications, 2020 is likely to be a record-breaking year as well.  But don’t be concerned that we are overvalued.  Our regression analysis of median sales prices back to 1991 shows that our current prices are right where they should be.  While the prices in 2008 were certainly inflated, we suffered through the correction that put us back on the right path.
