sumter home sales: September 2010 Sumter SC Market Report - 10/07/10 02:51 PM
  Market Summary Thru September 30, 2010    
September had 74 residential properties close. An increase of 12 units over August 2010.  Looking at the Monthly Units Closed chart, one might expect to see a peak in November as we did last year, but I would feel confident in saying we won't see that peak this year.  That peak was generated with the end of the 2009 First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit at the end of November and then that was extended with a newer version that ended in having a house under contract in April 2010.  There are … (1 comments)

Pricing Your HomeSo you are ready to consider selling your home or you have to put it on the market?  Maybe you have an idea about what your house is worth or you know what you want for it.  Either way, what you are able to sell your home for is what the market will bear.When I met with sellers, I always tell them in order to sell your home you need to price it according to the market.  Granted we all might think our home is worth $1 million, but what is a buyer willing to pay.

sumter home sales: Cooler Weather... Cooler Sales... - 08/31/10 12:21 PM
Everyone breathe a collective sigh of relief.  Cooler weather seems to be around the corner, but with that historically the best selling season of the year is over in Sumter South Carlina. The Sumter market has historically been most active during the summer months and from the end of September through the start of the New Year, the closing of residential real estate tends to slow.   This doesn’t mean that if your home is on the market, you take it off.  (Unless of course you truly feel you need a break.)  It simply means that there are less buyers out … (2 comments)

sumter home sales: April 2010 Real Estate Market Update Sumter, SC - 05/17/10 01:57 PM
Market Summary Thru April 30, 2010  
 
April brought a flurry of buyer activity into the Sumter Market.  The good news is for many potential home buyers the tax credit may not have ended on April 30th!  If a buyer is military or a Federal Government employee who was out of the country for part of 2008 or 2009, they have up to April 2011 to use the tax credit!!!!  Since many Air Force and Army personnel fit this category, they may still be able to use the tax credit to purchase a home!   In April Sumter county had … (1 comments)

sumter home sales: December 2009 Sumter, SC Market Report - 01/13/10 03:36 PM
    Market Summary Thru December 31, 2009    
Sumter county in December 2009 had 64 units closed.  This is down from November and December, but considering the time of year and holidays, this is not unusual.  There was a lot of buyer activity though with many buyers moving into the area.  The question that only time will tell is if we see an increase January and February.  We are currently a week and half into January and we are seeing closings.  This might not seem significant, but most home buyers close at the end of the month not near … (4 comments)

sumter home sales: Sumter, SC Real Estate Market Update November 2008 - 12/08/08 01:10 PM
November was a slower month for the Sumter Real Estate Market.  This follows most Novembers in the past several years when the market slows in November and December due to the holidays.  Buyers are still out looking, but the activity is not very steady.

The number of units sold in November was considerably lower than the units sold in October (59 vs.80).  When looking at the units sold per month history, November is lower than October since 2004.  December is a strange month in some years prior closings in December have increased over November closings, some years have stayed the … (1 comments)

sumter home sales: Sumter, SC Real Estate Market Update October 2008 - 11/06/08 01:34 PM
October was an up and down month in Sumter county real estate.  Some agents were busy with buyers and sellers, while others were trying to find the elusive buyer.  There are buyers out there, but it seems the closer to elections we were, the more they were waiting to see what happens.
 
The number of units sold in October was slightly lower than the units sold in September (80 vs.86).  October in prior years has been consistent on the August and September levels.  While our numbers are lower than September, they are not drastically off.  Wile factoring in the election, … (1 comments)

sumter home sales: Sumter, SC Real Estate Market Update August 2008 - 09/22/08 09:29 AM
Ok, so my predictions for the market holding steady did not exactly happen in August.  To be honest though, I was shocked when I researched the numbers and saw that only 87 units closed in Sumter County during the month of August.  This was a true surprise because we were having a lot of buyer activity....  With that being said, I still think my predictions will hold true from my July Market Update.
The units sold decreased to 87 in August vs. 103 in July, with the pending decreasing from 172 in July to 166 in August.  The number of pending … (0 comments)
