A look at Charleston’s economy:

The Charleston economy is doing great.  Breeze Airways announced they were adding flights from Charleston to San Francisco, Las Vegas, Syracuse, and Fort Myers.  Bintelli LLC announced they are expanding operations in Charleston County.  The manufacturer and distributor of mopeds, scooters, and electric vehicles will create 72 new jobs here.  A study says that SC ranked number 2 in US for inbound moves in 2021.  SC is 1 of 13 states with more people moving in than out. Kempton of Charleston, peninsular Charleston’s first new senior care facility in several years, is ready to take in residents near the city’s hospital district.  A new 250 unit apartment development is in the works for the Cainhoy area of Berkeley County off Clements Ferry Road near I-526.

Of course, our real estate market is doing fantastic.  2021 was a record year but 2022 sales are being slowed by even lower active inventory.  We ended 2021 with a 10.1% increase in transactions over the record set in 2020. But inventory continues to drop. We now have around 1000 active listings. That’s well less than 1 month of inventory.  It’s very difficult to keep up the sales numbers with inventory so low.  Potential home sellers are anxious about their ability to purchase a new home.  Of course, builders are having supply chain and labor issues.  This discussion is similar to most real estate markets around the US.  Through February, we are down 9.5% in terms of transactions compared to the same period in 2021.  February 2022 was down 14.9% in transactions compared to February 2021.  Median sales price is now at $375k and has risen 14% year to date compared with the same 2021 period.
