The value of a home is determined by the current market. The current market can change in 12 months. Appraisers typically use sales in the last 6 months. Trulia is not always accurate in their values. I suggest getting a realtor to send you recent sold homes in your neighborhood to get an idea of the current value. ... more

Yes. The Realtor for my out-of-state investment property provides me with neighborhood activity along with reports from various websites on property views, showings scheduled and showing feedback reports, and recommendations from the Realtor's co-workers as to what would help sell my home. ... more

Teresa Cooper answered:
Dear Homeowner - I agree, it's a pretty complicated situation, and right now, there is still a lot of "volatility" - meaning prices and inventory change rapidly. To give you a one or two reason answer would be oversimplifying the situation. There are many factors at play in this "micro-market", including the economy with rising foreclosures that puts more houses on the market with a "fire sale" mentality, tighter credit which is keeping many buyers out of the market, speculators/investors pulling homes off the market and renting rather than trying to sell, the variety and uniqueness of the different Charleston neighborhoods, to name a few. I think in Sea Island and coastal communities, the neighborhoods are more homogenous, and so the effect of one factor - such as decrease in the number of listings - shows a more direct correlation to the average list/selling price of homes.

In short, no simple answer! and don't let anyone tell you there is!

Very best of success to you, Homeowner!

It's obvious real estate professionals are resorting to other means of "putting food on the table" regardless of the location.

As far as exactly what they are doing during the day, you appear to have all the information, what's your guess? ... more

Jackie Stewart answered:
If they are renting then they will stop paying someone else mortgage for them and start building equity in their own home. Even though prices are going down people usually buy homes for the long term so by the time they are ready to sell, equity will be there. ... more

As far as I know, there is no law like that in South Carolina. Certain provisions exist for members of the military but I don't think that will apply for the general public.

That being said, you can check your particular lease for loopholes. You may be able to get our for some other reason that your lease may allow for.

Also, check you lease to see if sublets are allowed. Worst case scenario, you can just find someone to take over your lease.

Good luck!

82 current listings between 325k - 1.5m, 10 homes currently under contract between 329k -1.8m, and 18 homes have recently SOLD! I'd love to add you to the SOLD category! I'm right next door to Rivertowne and I'm ready to help you. If you'd like to see all the comparables for square feet and days on market - please email me so I can send you the MLS information.

Dear Maxwell,
SC and specially Charleston has faired better than a lot of the country and compared to FL, SC is carrying her own weight. We have a client looking right now and they are hoping to spend under 400K and they have many choices. The big key to Charleston and most of all coastal property is access to water. The closer to the ocean or inter/intra coastal, the more expensive.

Hi Bob,

I would Love to send you my Market analysis on Seabrook Island. It should provide you with a complete picture of the Island. Please visit my website and register and I’ll either Email or UPS it to you Monday Morning. I think Seabrook is a wonderful place to have a second home. Have you looked on the other side of Charleston at Wild Dunes? It might be a good option for you as well (lots of amenities). I'll be happy to send you some good information on that area as well.

Have a Great day,
Dave Creaturo
