This is different depending on location. Our avg. price for homes actually increased last year from 2006. It definitely is a buyers market as there are lots of homes on the market. I think the key if you are selling is to get involved with a proactive company who is leading the way in technology and market awareness . They will know better how to price and position your home to get the best and most exposure. If you are a buyer, you will have lots of inventory to choose from. The smart buyer will choose an agent that is familiar with an area the buyer likes and help negotiate the best deal. Call me if I can help. John Smith 803-315-2899

I might agree with David on this one ... Columbia, like Greenville and a few other area's have taken more of a gentle approach in home prices ...

Unlike homes in California or Florida that went screaming from $180,000 to $340,000 in 18 months (and now praying for $210,000) ... they've traveled more on the last 25 year pace, 3% here, 5% over there, maybe a little 7% down the street etc, etc ...

Good luck and happy hunting.!

If you visit my blog ( http://thepattersonfiles.info/ ), I just wrote an article on March 17 about Northeast Columbia home prices. Hopefully, this will be helpful in answering your question(s).
