South Carolina REALTORS® Release September Market Numbers


COLUMBIA, S.C. (October 15, 2014) — South Carolina REALTORS® (SCR) today released its statewide housing market reports. The reports indicate that consumers are now finding more listings in their search results than they have in years, as higher prices have motivated more sellers to list their homes.

New Listings in the state of South Carolina increased 1.2 percent to 8,445. Pending Sales were up 11.6 percent to 5,416 and Inventory levels fell 3.2 percent to 47,054 units. Prices continued to gain traction as the Median Sales Price increased 3.6 percent to $164,699. Days on Market was down 4.3 percent to 110 days. Sellers were encouraged as Months Supply of Inventory was down 7.6 percent to 8.5 months.

The departure of investors from the scene should benefit first-time homebuyers, but student debt and sluggish wage growth have slowed the transition. The economy is growing, albeit slowly. Contrary to the forecasts of most economists, inflation remains tame, partly enabling the Federal Reserve to keep rates low for longer.
