Want to Sell your Upstate SC Home?

The single most important element you will need is a fair asking price. There are plenty of agents who will list your home for anything you say, but if the price is not in line with what the market will support, you are wasting your time and exposing your home to "shop wear" - (once your home is seen by other agents as overpriced, it tends to get ignored and just sits on the market and stales). Let us give you a real figure - we don't tell folks what they want to hear; we give them a real range based on facts and experience.
We don't just put your property in the MLS and hope for the best. We aggressively market your property through the Mega Listing Sites and Social Media. We know the internet sites that drive traffic, and your home will have unparalleled exposure to thousands of potential buyers. We harness the power of such sites as Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, YouTube and Google Maps. As well as facebook, Twitter, Craigslist, Hotpads, Oodle and many others. We have an experienced marketing department, and it shows!

September 2014 Market Reports are Out
Housing Supply Outlook
As recovery returns to most local markets after a brief soft patch, the Commerce Department released data showing new home sales surging to a six-year high. For the 12-month period spanning October 2013 through September 2014, Pending Sales in the Western Upstate region were up 4.1 percent overall. The price range with the largest gain in sales was the $200,001 to $350,000 range, where they increased 14.7 percent.
The overall Median Sales Price was up 4.2 percent to $138,000. The property type with the largest price gain was the Condo segment, where prices increased 15.7 percent to $105,000. The price range that tended to sell the quickest was the $100,001 to $150,000 range at 92 days; the price range that tended to sell the slowest was the $350,001 and Above range at 152 days.
Market-wide, inventory levels were up 2.4 percent. The property type that gained the most inventory was the Single-Family segment, where it increased 3.4 percent. That amounts to 13.0 months supply for Single-Family homes and 10.0 months supply for Condos.
Markets across the nation seem to be back on the recovery track after a brief pause. One of the more encouraging aspects of this renewed recovery is that new construction of single-family homes reached six-year highs in August, according to the U.S. Commerce Department. Consumers are also finding more listings in their search results than they have in years. Inventory is rising in many neighborhoods as higher prices have motivated more sellers to list.
New Listings in the Western Upstate region decreased 1.9 percent to 558. Pending Sales were down 36.8 percent to 160. Inventory levels rose 2.4 percent to 3,767 units.
Prices continued to gain traction. The Median Sales Price increased 2.3 percent to $135,000. Days on Market was up 8.8 percent to 107 days. Sellers were encouraged as Months Supply of Inventory was down 1.6 percent to 12.8 months.
The departure of investors from the scene should benefit first-time homebuyers, but student debt and sluggish wage growth have slowed that transition. The economy is growing, but it’s growing at a slower pace than desired. Thankfully, inflation remains tame, partly enabling the Federal Reserve to keep rates low for longer, contrary to the forecasts of most economists.
