Real estate here is doing quite well. The number of sales so far in 2018 is nearly identical YTD as 2017, which was a record year. We will likely sell 18k residential units again this year. The median price is up 6.7% to a record of $270k... and many areas are up more than that. It is practically impossible to get a home under $300k in Mt Pleasant or James Island. Both of those areas are over $200/sqft. The median in Summerville, Goose Creek, and North Charleston is usually above $115/sqft. Vacant land is being gobbled up to build new homes. New construction is abundant in all areas of Charleston. It is rampant on Johns Island and near the Volvo Plant in Summerville. The Volvo Plant is coming along and there will be a new exit off I-26.
