2008 South Carolina Housing Market Statistics

Real Estate Agent with Carolina One Real Estate


Below is a general look at all the local areas in South Carolina. Please remember this is a broad view point and real estate is very localized so the numbers may not be truly accurate for your individual home. The key point I see here is that across the board, sales were down but the average price of the homes was just down a little. This shows that overall South Carolina has held up well so far during this economic period.

Randall, no surprise in the stats, still sobering to view. The days on the market for Columbia and Green ville didn't seem too bad.

Encouragement is on the way.

thanks Jay - I think if a lot of agents leave the business in 09, we will be fine with similar sales numbers this year but I do think it is going to get better by the end of the year
