And guess whose among them? My beloved, Charleston, SC!! Charleston, SC is #8 among America's 25 Strongest Housing Markets!
The Forbes article stated that it "requested Moody's Economy.com to compile a list of the country's real estate markets that are on the road to recovery. Moody's used the country's Census-defined metro areas--including metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas--with populations over 500,000, and prepared forecasts through 2011. They then compared them to prices in the second quarter of 2008, which are the latest figures available, to calculate how far prices will likely fall before reaching bottom."
Charleston Metro, SC area is esimated to have a popular of 666,900. Moody's predicts the bottom of the market to be expected in 4th quarter of 2009. The forecast for the bottom is only a -1.1% change from 2nd quarter 2008 prices. Can you say, "WOWOWOW!?" It's time to go ahead and get an additional 1.1% of the price now to match the bottom and take advantage of the low interest rates.
