On 11/26/08, the SC Business Journal published this article. It's no secret in Charleston, but many do not realize that real estate is local. While numbers have dropped a little in Charleston, it has not followed extreme drops in many other markets. The statistics came from the US Federal Housing Finance Agency based on sales and refinancing information available on existing single family homes. "The Charleston-North Charleston-Summerville metro area came in at number 65 with 1.27% appreciation over the last year." Not only has SC weathered the storm well, but specifically Charleston, SC has endured the housing crisis well. Values have dropped slightly when you consider where prices were in 2005. Inventory peaked in 2007 at 16,000 active listings and it currently sits at 10,800 in the Tri-County area.
