James Island & Folly Beach April Real Estate Update The market seems to be picking up a bit with an increase in showings over the last few months. The combination of lots of homes to choose from, low interest rates and the $8000 tax credit for first time home buyers seems to be getting people to finally jump off that fence.   Actual closed sales are down from 4th quarter 08 to 1st quarter 09 in the James Island and Folly Beach areas. When you factor in houses under contract, James Island seems to be picking up.   In 4th quarter 2008, a total of 87 properties sold with 77 sold on James Island and 10 sold on Folly Beach. In 1st quarter 2009, a total of 62 properties sold with 56 being sold on James Island and 6 sold on Folly Beach. However, there are currently 62 homes under contract on J...

James Island Real Estate Local News: In the Market  The shaky economy has scared many homebuyers into hiding, but don't be fooled. Many potential James Island real estate buyers have found some terrific deals. Over 1,000 homes have sold in the Charleston area so far this year, many of those on James Island. Given the difficult job market and some folks paralyzed with the thought of lost income. Buyers have been slow to move on potential great buys. Stricter lending standards and fear that a purchase today could lose value almost overnight, have added fear factors to the already fading sales figures. So, why would anyone buy a home right now?

I was showing property earlier today in the Bayview Farms subdivision of James Island, SC.  I had some clients with me in the car...you know, from "out of town".  And as we drove through the entrance of the neighborhood, things go quiet.  Now mind you, this isn't normally out of the ordinary but these folks were from New York!  They usually have a hard time keeping quiet (my NY friends can laugh and attest to this).  So the entire morning, we all had coffee and were talking back and forth about life, yapping away.  And like I said, when we get to Bayview Farms the car became completely silent.  I froze like a deer in headlights, wondering what I had said, or what I had done.  Do they not like the neighborhood?  Are they scared of this area?  Are they going to jump from the car? Then I r...

  James Island Real Estate News:  Rescue Plan May Be a Little Too Late     It's coming, but will it help? The long awaited federal plan to get up to $1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) in loans flowing in to consumers hands is ready to be launched. Will the TALF really help?  Will the TALF really help James Island Real Estate Sales?  The Term Asset Backed Securities Loan Facility or TALF is aimed at providing money for loans for cars, college, credit cards and small business. With people losing jobs or fearing they might lose them many may be reluctant to borrow for big purchases.  Are consumers so weakened that the TALF will end up looking like a solution to the last years problem? Maybe the situation has moved from a credit crises to an economy disabled by the aftereffects of that crisi...

James Island Real Estate News - Charleston Market Slides; James Island Numbers Far Ahead of Local Median Real Estate Results Homes in Charleston during January fetched a median price of $176,000, a steep drop from the December level of $191,000. But James Island Real Estate prices held with a median number just over $256,000. The last time the Charleston area experienced a median number this low was 2004. Ufortunately the number of transactions in the Charleston/James Island Real Estate market dropped an astounding 35% to 372 transactions. Since data has been kept, there hasn't been a lower monthly sales number. The most interesting number to take from the current available statistics is that for the first time in nearly 2 years, the number of available properties for sale fell below 1...
