Hilton Head Island, SC Real Estate Professional: MARKET Studies Bluffton, SC January 2014

MARKET Studies Bluffton, SC January 2014

MARKET Studies Bluffton, SC 2014

As with most real estate messages, it takes a tremendous amount of research and analysis to determine exactly where we are. The good news is that there are fewer and fewer properties coming onto the market in our area every month.

A brief explanation of the local definition of "Bluffton, Off-Plantation". We have many gated communities in the area but our local Multiple Listing Service separates those developments that are accessible without gates or guards. These are the enclaves about which the information and charts refer.

The following shows the number of listings that were placed on the market in January for the years beginning in 2003 to the present as well as the average list prices.

The difficult part of the equation is that pricing still remains a very critical aspect for sellers. Though there is upward pressure, the prices are still dictated by recent sales. Various neighborhoods are showing signs of increases of more than 5% since the end of 2013; other communities are still languishing. The most active price point is in the low $100,000's. Availability of homes or townhomes, or condos below $100,000 is virtually non-existent.

 

There are 201 Homes on the Market in Bluffton, Off-Plantation

AVERAGE LIST PRICE $197,697

There are 102 PENDING Homes

156 Homes CLOSED in the last 90 days

AVERAGE SALE PRICE $224,944

It's exciting to see that as the days on the market decreases, the number of new listings declines, the price pressure will gradually increase.
