Fort Mill, SC Housing Market Update: January 2021

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty


Latest news on the Fort Mill real estate market in January 2021 and what it means for you...  


Fort Mill's housing market (29715 and 29708 zip codes) remained a seller's market in January with much lower inventory, lower months supply of housing, a decrease in new listings, higher average home sale prices, and higher pending and closed sales.


Pending sales increased 1.5% and closed sales increased 86.2% year-over-year in January. 


New listings decreased 22.5% in Fort Mill year-over-year.  Housing inventory dropped 65.1% year-over-year. The months supply of homes decreased 63.2% to just 0.7 months from 1.9 months in the same month one year ago.


Average days on market decreased 39 days to 15 days versus the same month one year ago. Median days on market were 3, decreasing 35 days versus the same month one year ago.  


Sellers received a median 100% of list price, up 2.2% year-over-year. Home buyers clearly had minimal negotiating room for Fort Mill homes.


Average home sale prices increased 3.1% in January 2021 versus January 2020, while median home sale prices increased 4.3%. Average sale price was $350,033 and median sale price was $315,900.

Good morning, Nina Hollander 
How thin can thinventory get?  I hope it starts bulking up soon. Maybe in the Spring?

Days are the market is absolutely wild right now.  We are getting contracts from people who have not even seen the property and just include a contingency of looking at the home in person.  Thanks for the info and hope that you have a wonderful day!

Thank you for the update for your area.  Closed sales up 86% year over year...Wow! I am with Carol Williams, I hope we start getting more supply soon.  We can really use more here in Elk Grove too.  One of the areas I specialize in and lived in for over 20 does not even have one home available to purchase.  That is truly remarkable.  Thanks again!

Carol Williams hi Carol... thinventory is totally anorexic right now and soon to be on life support. We've been waiting for more spring inventory for 5+ years... rather than getting more of it, each year it diminishes.

Norma J. Elkins hi Norma... we are also seeing offers for properties sight unseen... my experience with my sellers is that 99% of the time they won't accept an offer like that... with multiple offers on the table why take a chance buyers will walk once they see the home.

Raymond Henson, SRES, GRI hi Ray... we have so many neighborhoods where nothing has been up for sale in several years. Inventory is at critical stages.

Rocky Dickerson hi Rocky... as a financial executive in Fortune 500 companie who made presentations to boards of directors, I learned a long time ago that different people process numbers in different ways... so you need a mix of ways to say the same thing.

I am late to commenting this morning, even though I was up early.  Your market continues to be crazy given the fueled demand.  We wish you a more stable marketplace with lots of inventory.  Happy Thursday.  A
