James Island Weekly Real Estate News: Home sales decline, but... As the prime spring home-buying season came to a close, Charleston's real estate market began to show some encouraging signs. Homes sold throughout the region totaled 732 in June, a 12% drop from the same month last year. James Island Real Estate buyers were just about dead even with the region's numbers. For the entire spring season, sales were off roughly 20% over 2008, or more than 40% compared to 2007. Some industry experts noted that more sellers have readjusted their expectation of their home value, which has brought prices down considerably.

James Island Weekly Real Estate News: Existing Home Sales Rise Sales of previously occupied homes rose modestly from April to May, but signs of recovery are fragile at best. James Island Real Estate sales show the same modest boost that the national numbers reflect. The National Association of Realtors said that home sales rose 2.4%, missing analyst expectations and sending the stock market lower. The key statement coming from this news came from Paul Dales, US economist with Capital Economics who wrote, "While activity has stabilized, a meaningful recovery has yet to begin."

James Island Real Estate News: Homes Sales Dip Again New data from the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors show that 518 homes sold last month, a 26% decline over April 2008 and 50 fewer than the total from March. It is unclear what this drop means for the local residential housing market, especially the James Island Real Estate Market. April is historically a busy month for homes sales and the drop comes at a time when interest rates are near an all time low and the federal government is tempting first time buyers with an $8,000 tax credit. The median price of a home sold last month slipped to $181,303 - down from $205,000 for April 2008. To read the full article from the The Post and Courier.

James Island Real Estate News: Are Short Sales Always a Great Deal? Reading classifieds, driving by homes, checking the internet, home shoppers have seen the term "short sale." If you have been looking for James Island Real Estate, you will find a large inventory of short sales available to you right now. Short Sales can be great deals, but in some cases can be a flop. What is a short sale? "A Short Sale is a transaction in which any Lien Holder releases its lien against the Property and accepts an amount less than the full amount." Each transaction is different. Yet two things are clear: The short sale is rarely short and it's no guarantee of a sale. The National Association of Realtors found that 45% of all home sales nationwide in the 4th quarter of 2008 were foreclosures or short sa...
