Charleston New Homes
Snapshot
­­Volume SIX | Issue ONE | March 2014
Observations & Trends
Welcome to the first issue of the Charleston New Homes Snapshot for 2014. I hope
everyone is off to a great start in the new year!
Our local real estate market experienced the best year since 2007 in several
categories ranging from over 12,000 closings in the overall market to over 2800 new
home closings and over 3700 permits pulled by area builders. As we enter 2014,
we will be challenged by the shortage of finished lots, however, the development
activity has returned to 2006 - 07 levels with many parcels in all three counties going
through this tedious process. Below we will take a look at how we end 2013 regarding
permits, closings, and the ranking of the top 10 builders in our market. If you have
any questions, feel free to contact me anytime.

Above you will find a graph from Real Estate Information Service, Inc that shows the
single family permit activity in the Tri County area for the last four years. Overall, permit
activity is up almost 50% since 2011 and is the highest since 2007. Typically, strong
permit activity is a good sign that builder confidence is increasing in the market. This is
always a strong indicator of the future and it seems positive by this graph.
