Market Summary Thru November 30, 2014
 
 
If you compare the Sumter SC Real Estate Market in November 2014 to October 2014, you may be very disappointed.  However, looking back at prior years, the decrease in sales from October to November is normal.  2008 and 2009 have been benchmarks years to compare 2014 to and the sales for November 2008 were 59 properties sold while November 2014 ended with 61.  The year to day properties sold for 2014 at the end of November was 882, which is higher than both 2008 and 2009.  I expect the year will finish … (1 comments)

December 2013 wrapped up an intertesting year in the Sumter SC real estate market.  For the year, 2013 ended up only 8 properties less sold than in 2009.  Most of the 2013 sales outpaced the 2009 levels and while the sales in Sumter stayed fairly smooth, the last three months of 2009 experienced a larger amount of sales every month thus putting the Year end numbers higher than 2013.  2013 ended with a 21.4% increase in the number of sales over 2012!  This is good news for the Sumter Real … (1 comments)

October 2013 was a cooling month in the Sumter SC Real Estate Market.  The number of homes sold in Sumter SC was down to 70 after having 87 homes sell in September 2013.  The total of homes sold year to date in 2013 is 803 is still above prior year back to 2008.  I fully expect the sales for 2013 to remain above the prior years through the end of December.  The number of homes under contract at the end of … (0 comments)

sumter sc real estate market: Sumter County, SC Market update for September 27, 2013 - 09/28/13 03:39 AM
 
 
The Sumter, SC market has seen 65 homes sold in September 2013 and 52 homes put under contract.  The solds are still outpacing the pendings (or under contract) homes so I expect to see fewer closing in October 2013.  This is normal for the Sumter SC real estate market cycle.  Numbers may be lower until after the holidays, but every year things change up slightly to keep us on our toes.

Sumter County, SC Market update for August 30, 2013. 
 
The last full week of the August was quite busy at the closing attorneys’ offices.  Sumter, SC is continuing to see houses being listed and many new listings were put into the Multiple Listing Service during the week ending August 30, 2013.  The median home price spiked up to $175,000 for the week, but the month to date shows the more real picture of $142,500.  Month to date had 92 homes placed under contract for sale, leading indicators to believe that September will be a strong month for the Sumter, … (0 comments)

The beginning of August continued to be a very busy month for Sumter, SC real estate.  Sorry, no video this week as I am catching up with the weeks I have missed.  And this Friday I was off spending some time with my daughter before she started Kindergarten.  (But I took plenty of pictures and will post later about some great day trips from Sumter!)

Market Summary Thru June 30, 2013
 
    
 
June 2013 proved that a slight decrease in the number of homes under contract doesn’t mean less homes are sold.   The number of pending homes at the end of May 2013 was down to 198 from April’s 214.  I thought this would possibly translate into less closings or solds in June 2013, but this wasn’t the case.  June 2013 saw an increase in closed sales over May by 8 homes.  This is good news as the last time we saw 93 homes sold in June was 2010.  To get to … (0 comments)

sumter sc real estate market: Buyer's Fall? - 09/02/10 05:50 AM
Fall is just about upon us in Sumter, South Carolina.  As the temperatures drop from sweltering summer to a cooler fall, the enjoyment of shopping for a new home increases.  As a buyer, if you are still in the market to purchase a home, fall brings more opportunities.  The Sumter Market has traditionally tended to have slower home sales in the last quarter of the year.  For a buyer, this means less competition in purchasing your new home. Many positives result for home buyers:
Buyers can take a little more time to decide if a home is right for them Buyers … (2 comments)

  As I stated back in June, my report is under transition.  I have been working on it over the summer and what a summer this has proven to be.  The number of units sold in Sumter County has increased and many Realtors®, including myself, have been very busy.  My report is still in transition and I am open to any suggestions you might have.  You can email me at kim@agentowned.com.  I am trying to provide you the consumer with information to make an informed decision about the real estate market in the Sumter, SC area.   Summary of the Market … (2 comments)

sumter sc real estate market: Sumter, SC Real Estate Market Update November 2008 - 12/08/08 05:10 AM
November was a slower month for the Sumter Real Estate Market.  This follows most Novembers in the past several years when the market slows in November and December due to the holidays.  Buyers are still out looking, but the activity is not very steady.

The number of units sold in November was considerably lower than the units sold in October (59 vs.80).  When looking at the units sold per month history, November is lower than October since 2004.  December is a strange month in some years prior closings in December have increased over November closings, some years have stayed the … (1 comments)

sumter sc real estate market: Sumter, SC Real Estate Market Update October 2008 - 11/06/08 05:34 AM
October was an up and down month in Sumter county real estate.  Some agents were busy with buyers and sellers, while others were trying to find the elusive buyer.  There are buyers out there, but it seems the closer to elections we were, the more they were waiting to see what happens.
 
The number of units sold in October was slightly lower than the units sold in September (80 vs.86).  October in prior years has been consistent on the August and September levels.  While our numbers are lower than September, they are not drastically off.  Wile factoring in the election, … (1 comments)

sumter sc real estate market: Sumter, SC Real Estate Market Update September 2008 - 10/11/08 02:55 AM
Another busy month in the Sumter County real estate market.  Lots of buyers were out looking, but not necessarily buying.  I am noticing that agents are more creative with their buyers' offers.  Several of my buyers had homes to sell prior to being able to close or they were still in a lease and wanted to have a home waiting for them when the lease was over.  There are legal ways to handle these situations so make sure your Realtor is knowledgeable in how to help you the buyer or the seller.
 
The number of units sold in September was … (3 comments)

sumter sc real estate market: Sumter, SC Real Estate Market Update August 2008 - 09/22/08 02:29 AM
Ok, so my predictions for the market holding steady did not exactly happen in August.  To be honest though, I was shocked when I researched the numbers and saw that only 87 units closed in Sumter County during the month of August.  This was a true surprise because we were having a lot of buyer activity....  With that being said, I still think my predictions will hold true from my July Market Update.
The units sold decreased to 87 in August vs. 103 in July, with the pending decreasing from 172 in July to 166 in August.  The number of pending … (0 comments)

sumter sc real estate market: Sumter, SC Real Estate Market Update July 2008 - 08/05/08 02:43 AM
In June, I wrote about how consistency has been key the past several months in the Sumter, SC real estate market.  July continued with that trend having 103 units closed vs the 106 in June.  I expect to see these numbers for closing continue through October at least based on prior years.
 
Listings to the month of July were up slightly vs. June with an increase of 5 units. 
 
Overall in 2008, we have seen a total of 1285 units listed in Sumter County.  We have seen a total of 656 units sold leaving us with a large inventory. … (0 comments)

sumter sc real estate market: Sumter, SC Real Estate Market Update May 2008 - 06/10/08 07:02 AM

With 95 properties sold in Sumter County during May 2008, the number of properties sold during May is holding consistent with prior months.  With the exception of January 2008, the number of units sold in Sumter County has been between 87 and 105 units since September 2007.  I do expect to see the numbers increase slightly during June and July as we have the PCS (transfer) season upon us for Shaw Air Force Base. 
 
The monthly listings for Sumter, SC also remained near previous levels with 185 properties listed for sale during the month.  The numbers are still showing … (3 comments)
