Tega Cay, SC Real Estate Sales Update For December 2021


Tega Cay, South Carolina housing market remained very much a home seller's market in December 2021, evidenced by key indicators such as lower months supply of homes, less housing inventory, and fewer days on market in December 2021 compared with December 2020.


Tega Cay's months of  housing inventory was 0.7 months, down 41.7% year-over-year from 1.2 months in December 2020 and 2.5 months in December 2019.  Housing inventory was down 39.5% year-over-year. New listings increased 25% year-over-year and sold as quickly as they came on market.


Pending sales increased 28% in Tega Cay in December 2021 compared with one year ago, most likely due to the uptick in new listings during the month. Tega Cay's closed sales decreased 43.2% year-over-year. Lack of inventory in previous months, no doubt, contributed to the lower sales.


On average, homes sold in 17 days, down 5 days compared with the same month one year ago and down 5 days month-over-month. In December 2019, average days on market were 71.  Median days on market  decreased 4 days to just 3 days in December 2021 and down 2 days month-over-month. In December 2019 median days on market were 68.


Pent-up demand for Tega Cay homes was also evident in the number of average showings per listing in December 2021. On average, listed homes had 15.1 showings, up 51% from 10 showings in December 2020 and from 7.4 showings in December 2019. Clearly, it's a matter of more buyers "chasing" after fewer homes.


Average price of sold homes increased 6.9% to $459,651, while the median sale price dropped slightly by 0.5% to $403,065 compared with the same month one year ago. The slight drop in median home sales is less an indicator of home values dropping in Tega Cay than that of the price mix of homes sold in the month.


Price per square foot was $194, up 18.3% per square foot versus the same month one year ago. 


Sellers received a median 101.1% of listing price (up 1.1% year-over year) in final sale price, showing virtually no window of opportunity for Tega Cay home buyers to negotiate.

Tega Cay on Lake Wylie is All About Location, Location, Location and Lifestyle, Lifestyle, Lifestyle!


In Polynesian, "tega cay" means beautiful peninsula... which is exactly what Tega Cay, South Carolina is... a beautiful 1600 acre peninsula on Lake Wylie just 20 miles south of Charlotte, North Carolina. The Tega Cay community began developing in the 1970's and was originally modeled after a Polynesia resort. It includes the Tega Cay Golf Club, a 27-hole golf course, a marina, the Tega Cay Beach & Swim Center, tennis courts at the Tega Cay Tennis Club, walking trails, waterfront parks and ball fields, and so much more. The town also has its own Police Department, Fire Department and Emergency Services Squad.
Tega Cay's motto is "Bonae Vitae/The Good Life" and once you visit and take a look around, you know exactly why that's so.
An upscale, lake-side community, Tega Cay provides a high quality of life, reasonable cost of living, and top-rated public schools. Its small-town feeling provides security and comfort, and sitting on Lake Wylie, it also provides virtually year-round recreation, including boating, golf, tennis, and more. Tega Cay's Park and Recreation Department is home to more than 4,500 participants annually and features youth baseball, flag football, soccer and softball. But adults are not left out with adult softball, kickball and senior games. And where else would you find both youth and adult croquet games?

Hi Nina- excellent market report on Tega Cay. And it looks as if they are proof again at the out-of-sight housing market in the Charlotte area.

Those numbers are quite crazy and it is even crazier that it has been this way for so long.

Ed Silva hi Ed... I don't expect rising home prices in Tega Cay (or anywhere else, for that matter) to diminish without more inventory coming on the market.

Kathy Streib good morning, Kathy... our market is not really cooling off as yet, unless you count the snow we got overnight and the low temperatures this morning! :) I believe Texas is experiencing some very cold temperatures, as welll.

Good Saturday morning, Nina.

Have a very special weekend. We have a sunny day in Maryland and are thankful that the snow storm did not reach our area. Our family members in Norfolk have lots of snow.

Roy Kelley good morning, Roy... sunny here too, but just 24 degrees and two inches of snow on the ground! More than they were predicting a day ago. Wishing you and Dolores a lovely weekend.

Hello Nina.  No inventory and incredibly enhanced prices from just one year ago make it difficult putting market reports into proper perspective.  Good work on yours.  M

Nina, think I missed this market update for Tega Cay, and looks very similar to the rest of Charlotte - low on inventory, higher home values.

Joan Cox hi Joan... sometimes I think I should just write one report and for all subsequent reports just say "refer to my post of whatever date." :)
