The Mount Pleasant real estate market has been booming in 2013. Through the first 6 months of the year, the number of homes sold is up over 34% from the same period last year!
Mount Pleasant Homes Sales Return to 2006 Levels…
The chart below reflects the trend for the 1st half of the year for each year since 2006. As you can see, we have sold as many homes this year as we did in 2006 when we were in the midst of the real estate bull market!!
Home Sales in Mt. Pleasant Above $400K are Surging…
There has been a very significant jump in sales activity for Mt. Pleasant home sales above $400,000 this year. When home sales above the median price (currently at $315,000) are outpacing the lower priced homes, it is a very healthy sign for the overall Mt. Pleasant real estate market. Mt. Pleasant home sellers in the more expensive price ranges have been waiting several years for this to happen!
The chart below shows the percentage increase in units sold by price range in 2013 through the first 6 months.
Mt. Pleasant Home Pricing “Inching” Up…
So what does all this increased sales activity mean for pricing? When sales activity surges, there is an increase in pricing that ultimately follows. Sometimes it can be a year or so before there is a noticeable increase as it takes time to work through the existing inventory. We are starting to see that now as reflected in the chart below.
As you can see, the median selling price is up slightly this year in Mt. Pleasant and I expect this number to rise if we continue the current sales momentum, particularly in the higher price ranges.
So stay tuned as we will be watching the pricing trends very closely and reporting back to you in the coming months!
