Market update

Dave Sansom, CFO / CFO of Carolina One Real Estate Services, provided an overview of the Lowcountry real estate market as of October 31.

An extreme imbalance between supply and demand exists in all key sectors of the market. For prices to stabilize, 5 to 7 months of inventory are needed in a market area. Below this range, prices will increase.

“We have 0.8 months of inventory on the market and the 14 MLS areas with the most activity all have a very large imbalance with many areas where inventory is best measured in days or weeks instead of our usual use of months to measure absorption rate, “Sansom says.

Absorption rate.png

The term absorption rate refers to a measure used in the real estate market to assess the rate at which available housing is sold in a specific market during a given period. It is calculated by dividing the number of homes sold in the allocated period by the total number of homes available.

Of the fourteen most active MLS areas in the tri-county region, 12 have inventory levels of one month or less.

Given that pricing is a function of supply and demand and that supply and demand are so imbalanced in these key areas of MLS, it seems very likely that house prices will continue to rise in the short and long term. middle term.
