I’On Real Estate Update

The I’On Real Estate Market Holds Steady

The I’On real estate market continues to show favorable real estate numbers in 2015!  With an average sales price getting closer to $1 million and the average selling price per square foot increasing slightly from 2014, I’On continues to be one of Charleston’s premier neighborhoods. Below are the details:

2015 Activity Through November 12:

  • I’On homes sold – 64
  • Average Selling Price/Square foot – $306
  • Median Selling Price – $887,500
  • Average Selling Price – $977,368
  • Average Days on Market – 83

I’On Home Pricing outpaces Daniel Island

Charleston’s strong real estate market means that established neighborhoods are now competing with newer developments for buyers.  Fortunately, for I’On residents the statistics show that their neighborhood is still producing strong average sales when compared to Daniel Island. While homes on Daniel Island sell faster, I’On homes sell at a higher price per square foot. This implies that buyers are seeking what I’On has to offer and are willing to pay more to be in an established and wonderful neighborhood.

I’On Real Estate Update

The I’On real estate market continues to be very strong in 2015.  Prices are still creeping up which is still very good news if you are thinking of selling your I’On home!  While the number of homes that have sold this year has decreased from last year, the average sales price has increased from 2014. Sold homes are also receiving on average 95% of their asking price. Here are some key data points from this year so far:

2015 YTD:

  • I’On Homes Sold – 40
  • Median Price for Homes Sold – $996,806
  • Average Selling Price/Square Foot – $307
  • Average Days on Market – 110Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 2.26.09 PM

I’On’s selling price per square foot has always outpaced North and South Mt. Pleasant and it continues to do so! This trend shows the continued desirability of owning and living in the I’On community. In addition, there are currently 10 I’On homes that are under contract or pending closing that range in price from $549,000 to $1,749,000.  If you would like additional information on I’On home sales so far this year, please click here.

Current Inventory

Today, there are 26 homes for sale in I’On.  This is fairly consistent with the number of homes that were on the market last August.  Inventory usually climbs during the summer months, so this number of homes for sale is not unusual.  With an average of only 5 months worth of supply for the I’On market, we remain in a strong seller’s market. However, homes priced above $1M tend to have closer to 7 months of supply which does not favor the buyer or the seller in a significant way. Below are some details on the I’On homes for sale:
  • Homes for sale – 26
  • Median Asking Price – $1,270,000
  • Asking Price/Square Foot – $332
  • Average Days on Market – 138

The I’On Real Estate Market Continues to Strengthen…

The I’On real estate market continues to be strong in 2014!  So far this year, the number of I’On homes sold is up 22% over the same period in 2013.  Below are the details:

2014 Activity Through May 21:

I’On Home Pricing Continues Upward Trend…

I’On home pricing continues to strengthen as well.  YTD, the median price of all homes sold in I’On is $847,500.  This is a 19% increase from the same period last year.  In addition, the average selling price/square foot is up over 6% from the same period last year.  The big jump in median price is due to a 38% increase in the number of $1M+ I’On homes sold YTD.

As selling price/square foot is always a popular measure for I’On homeowners and buyers, I am including a chart showing the trends for this metric for the last several years:

Price Per SQFT

I’On is a Sellers Market, For the Most Part…

With just 20 I’On homes currently on the market, we have only 4 months supply of inventory available in the neighborhood.  This is based on the last 6 months of sales history.  This indicates a strong sellers market, but this number does vary by price range.

Months of Inventory in I’On by Price Range:

  • Below $750K – 1.8 months
  • $750K to $1M – 3.3 months
  • Above $1M – 7.3 months

While demand for homes above $1M in I’On has improved dramatically in the last couple of years, we still have over 7 months supply of inventory available.  This represents a very stable market, but not one that favors the buyer or seller in any significant way.

Mt. Pleasant Real Estate Update – 2/11/14

The Mt. Pleasant real estate market is off to a blistering start to the new year!!  All measurable categories are outpacing the start we had during the same period last year such, including the most important one…PRICING!!  Here are some highlights:

2014 – January 1st Thru February 11th:

  • Median Price – $350,717 – up 18.9%
  • Homes Sold – 156 – Up 10.6%
  • Selling Price per Square Foot – $183 – up 10.9%

Mt. Pleasant Condo/Townhome Sales Surging…

While the numbers above represent the overall Mt. Pleasant real estate market, there are some significant stories to highlight in various segments of our market.  For example, the number of multi-family units sold (condos and townhomes) is up 39% over the same period last year, but the median price has remained relatively flat.  In contrast, the median price of single family homes sold YTD is up 21.3%, yet the number of homes sold is only up 2.7%.

Demand for Mt. Pleasant homes is Catching Up With Supply…

Pricing for single family homes is up because demand has caught up with supply.  And in some cases, the demand is exceeding the supply.  The Mt. Pleasant condo/townhome market has been playing a bit of “catch up” with demand over the last year and a half, but that market is now primed to see some significant price growth if the current sales trend continues.

MTP MOI Feb 2014The chart above shows the months of available inventory by price range for the Mt. Pleasant real estate market.  As you can see, virtually every price range is in a rather strong “seller’s market” (below 6 months of inventory).  Once you go above $750K in asking price, the market is still favoring the buyers.  But it is trending in the right direction (if you’re a seller!!) and I expect the inventory in that price range to continue coming down this spring.

If you are a buyer looking for a home above $750,000….HURRY!!  Now is the time!!  Prices have yet to take off and interest rates continue to be low!!
