2017 Year in Review

Posted by on Monday, February 5th, 2018 at 1:18pm.

2017 was a great year for real estate sales in Beaufort County. If you are looking to sell a home in 2018, the market looks to be in your favor. After years of a "Buyers’ Market", it seems that we are making a shift back to a "Sellers’ Market". When real estate professionals refer to a market as a sellers’ market, it's due to the lack of inventory (homes) vs. the number of buyers. Typically, in a sellers’ market, homes sell faster and for a higher price. 

2017 Stats: Sales on residential homes rose by 9% on Hilton Head Island and 19% for condo's and villas. In Bluffton, sales rose nearly 6% over last year. Homes priced between $220,000 - $675,000 saw the largest increase in activity. 

In 2017 the median sales price on HHI was $535,000 and in Bluffton $227,500. Less than 5% of units sold on HHI were under $100,000. If you are thinking about selling, this may be the right time.
