Analysis for 3rd Quarter Home Values The Average Sold Price decreased by 11.3% Median Price Increased by 3.3% Average Days on Market Decreased by 6.8% Median Days on Market Increased by 6.1% In essence, the market is adjusting to recent changes in the market by decreasing sales prices, but stabilizing in inventory - the average days on the market has decreased along with the average median price and days increasing. In my opinion, this tells me that market prices are going to continue to stabilize as long as the inventory stays around current or remains below a 5% change, and the median will continue to rise as long as there are no drastic changes to the market. Despite slowly increasing interest rates, consumers are gaining confidence in the market, thus stabilizing with continued increase in the prices.

A healthy market for 2 bedrooms as an increase by 9.04% was seen and decrease in the days on the market by 13.7%. If you have a 2 bedroom to sell, it might be a good time to look into listing.

Although 15.3% more 3 bedroom homes sold and the average sold price increase by 1.84%, the average median and days on market have increased by 8.26%, and 9.27%. If you are looking to sell, pay close attention to the sold statistics, as the market for the 3rd quarter seemed to captivate the attention of the consumer at 3rd quarter prices. List Price is going to play a significant role in negotiation. Another indicator that 3 bedrooms are moving in the wrong direction are the days on market sold. It also had and increase by 8.26%

The 4 bedroom market is also looking healthy, with a 10% increase in amount sold and a slight (0.5%) increase in the sold price. The median price is rising at a similar pace, 10.9% in list price. The median days on the market for the 4 bedroom has really changed by an average of 29% decrease, equal to 60 day decrease! The average days on the market remained unchanged. Inventory seems to be moving in the right direction, as long as the listing price does not change, this may be a good time to list. Again the sold prices and days on market will play a significant role in the 4 bedroom category.

The 5 bedroom homes sold decreased by almost 57%, and the average sold price has also dropped by about 12.2% The 5 bedroom median sold price has also decreased by 25.5%. The good news is that the average days on the market decreased by 15.7%. But again, the median is increasing. Pricing the home correctly if you have a 5 bedroom is of dire importance as the average pricing is falling and median days are increasing. In other words, don't price yourself out of the market. Current list prices may place a significant role along with sold comparable, if you are thinking about listing your 5 bedroom home.

Nationally the housing market increased by 12.4%, but the Pawleys Island market fell by 11.3%. It is very important that you choose an agent who not only knows the area, but can understand and have a true knowledge of the current local market.
