It’s a wrap! Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island & Wild Dunes 1st Quarter Closings Report

photo-12With the end of the first quarter of the year, let’s look at how homes sales shaped up on the following islands.

Isle of Palms

There were a total of 17 closed single-family homes sold on the Isle of Palms in the first 3 months of 2013, totaling $17,914,000 in volume. The median price per sale was $923,500 with an average price per square foot of $317. Owners received 91.42% of asking price.

This is a slight increase from the first quarter of 2012 where a total of 14 single-family homes sold for a total of $16,296,799.

In summary, I have to admit I was a bit surprised to see the numbers for the first quarter of 2013 similar to those of 2012 (could it be less inventory???).  I was expecting more of an increase.  With that being said, there is no doubt the real estate market is heating up, and my bet is it will show when I do my second quarter report.  Stay tuned!
