Bluffton Real Estate

Found 29 blog entries about Bluffton Real Estate.

For much of the country, the first quarter of 2019 provided several disruptive weather patterns that contributed to less foot traffic toward potential home sales. Coupled with low affordability, higher prices and an inventory situation in its infancy of recovering from record lows – not to mention several more days of wintry weather in April – slower sales persisted across most residential real estate markets.

It all began in 2005 to focus the inhabitants of Bluffton, South Carolina; the young and old, rich and poor, locals and transplants, as a community, to benefit the citizens, the local area merchants and artists through tourism.

Those who experience the uniqueness of the Town of Bluffton had and continue to express the need to protect and maintain the pristine quality of the May River and the historic Bluffton Oyster Company, as they are both fundamental to the very essence of the community.

In the words of Dan Wood, Festival Founder:

As Bluffton continues to grow, it is paramount that we continue to introduce our citizens, old and new, to these precious Bluffton gems. Festivals are like magnets; they attract all to celebrate their…

March 2019 Market Reports

In addition to the quandary of ongoing housing price increases and affordability concerns in many U.S. markets, the first quarter of 2019 saw a fair share of adverse weather as well. Sales totals were mixed across the nation and sometimes dependent on what was a persistent wintry mix, especially in the Great Plains, Midwest and Northeast. Meanwhile, new listings and total homes for sale have been trending lower in year-over-year comparisons in many areas, and last year's marks were already quite low.

New Listings were down 3.4 percent to 748. Pending Sales decreased 2.3 percent to 553. Inventory grew 7.4 percent to 2,433 units.

Prices moved higher as Median Sales Price was up 8.7 percent to $325,000. Days on Market increased 0.7 percent to 139

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

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

Home prices were consistently up again in most markets in 2018 but at reduced levels compared to recent years. High demand for few homes for sale fueled price increases, but evidence is mounting that inventory will finally improve in 2019. This may apply some downward pressure on prices for beleaguered home buyers. A fourth interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve in 2018 spooked the stock market to close out the year. The Fed has indicated that the number of rate increases in 2019 will be halved, which may be of little comfort to an already compressed consumer.

There is little risk in verbalizing the obvious and stating that Colleton River is not only one of the more beautiful communities in the South Carolina Lowcountry but competes positively for that title from coast to coast.

One of the more unique features of Colleton River is a gift of nature and the evolution of the landscape of the South Carolina Lowcountry.

The Colleton River community is located on a peninsula and therefore is surrounded on three sides by water.

With the Colleton and Chechessee Rivers to the north and west, and the historically-significant Port Royal Sound that flows to the Atlantic to the east, its natural topography gives the community a rare foundation of beauty and features on which it developed a truly
