February 2019 Market Reports

It is worthwhile to mention the weather when discussing residential real estate for large portions of the U.S. for February 2019, because this month has turned in some impressively cold, rainy and snowy days that have stalled some buying and selling actions. Nevertheless, housing markets have proven to be resilient despite predictions of a tougher year for the industry. It is still too early to say how the entire year will play out, but economic fundamentals remain positive.

New Listings were up 2.3 percent to 665. Pending Sales increased 26.2 percent to 515. Inventory grew 5.5 percent to 2,298 units.  Prices were still soft as Median Sales Price was down 2.3 percent to $299,150. Days on Market decreased 8.3 percent to 132 days. Months Supply of

HBC Heritage at Seapines Resort, Hilton Head Island, SC

A Bit of Background

Following the completion of the Sea Marsh course (now Heron Point) in 1964 and Harbour Town Golf Links in 1969, Hilton Head, by way of Sea Pines, launched an experiment that turned out to be one of the most prestigious and famous annual golf tournaments on the globe.

Today, Hilton Head Island golf courses are known around the world for challenging play and outstanding resort amenities.

January 2019 Market Reports

Despite a strong U.S. economy, historically low unemployment and steady wage growth, home sales began to slow across the nation late last year. Blame was given to a combination of high prices and a steady stream of interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve. This month, the Fed responded to the growing affordability conundrum. In a move described as a patient approach to further rate changes, the Fed did not increase rates during January 2019.

New Listings were up 23.9 percent to 611. Pending Sales increased 16.5 percent to 430. Inventory grew 10.0 percent to 2,262 units.

Prices were stable as Median Sales Price decreased slightly to $327,993. Days on Market decreased 8.5 percent to 140 days. Months Supply of Inventory remained flat at 5.1

When Del Webb dubbed the nearly ten-thousand-acre development nestled between the borders of Beaufort and Jasper Counties in the South Carolina Lowcountry Sun City, he was right on.

To summarize an amalgamation of resources into a simple definition, a ‘city is distinguished from other human settlements by its relatively great size, but also by its functions and activities’.

Inside the borders of this unique development there is so much going on that it would take several posts to this blog to do justice in describing them all. Just to enumerate the larger amenities creates an impressive list:

  • Three golf courses (two full-length, one executive):
    • Argent Lakes
    • Hidden Cypress
    • Okatie Creek
  • A twenty-acre lake (Lake Somerset)
