This Week: Mount Pleasant's Busiest Neighborhood

Mon, Jun 26th 2017 9:00 am by Cathy Hunnicutt Market Stats

Another great week in Mount Pleasant Real Estate, and across Charleston! We saw 40 homes go under contract in Mount Pleasant.  As we get ready to head into a holiday week, that is fantastic! The median list price was $224 per sq. ft.  

The most popular neighborhood this week? Dunes West! The golf community had 5 homes go under contract in one week.  

Across the Lowcountry, 358 homes were sold. It may not be the 400+ we saw last week, but it is still awesome.  James Island was also hot this week with 22 homes under contract. 

We are seeing homes go under contract within just a few days of hitting the market, so if you are staring to look, you want to get real time updates.  Call Ed Hunn...

Summertime in the Lowcountry

Fri, Jun 23rd 2017 3:00 pm by Cathy Hunnicutt Mount Pleasant Events

It's officially Summer! Sure, we've been in shorts and flip-flops for a few months now, but June 21st made our vacation-like-lifestyle more acceptable to the outside world. As visitors pop into town, staycations begin, and Summer Fridays take effect at most businesses, we thought we'd give you a round-up of some of this Summer's hottest happenings.

In Mount Pleasant, Party at the Point continues to draw crowds for awesome music in the most beautiful, laid-back setting.  There are few places as relaxing as Patriot's Point on the Charleston Harbor to unwind on a Friday evening. 

If Patriot's Point is a favorite spot, start making plans for the 4th of July.  Tickets are on sale now for the...

No Summer Slow-down Here!

Mon, Jun 19th 2017 8:53 am by Cathy Hunnicutt Market Stats

In Mount Pleasant and across Charleston, the real estate market remained busy last week.  Over 400 properties went under contract! 

39 Mount Pleasant homes went under contract, with a median price of $215 per sq. ft! 

100 of the homes under contract were in Hanahan/Goose Creek.  10% were new construction. 37 were in West Ashley, and 88 of 412 homes under contract were townhouses or condos.

2017 Set to be Record Breaking Year

Tue, Jun 13th 2017 10:51 am by Cathy Hunnicutt Market Stats

If you have been watching the Real Estate market in Mount Pleasant, and across Charleston, you shouldn't be surprised to learn that sales are up, prices are up, and 2017 is looking like it will be the busiest year in Charleston history.

Prices in North Mount Pleasant are increasing at a slightly higher rate than South of the Isle of Palms Connector. That can be attributed to the new construction in the area.  1,093 homes have already sold in Mount Pleasant this year!

Still waiting for mortgage rates to rise, as they hit low for the year!

Thu, Jun 1st 2017 10:05 pm by Cathy Hunnicutt Market Stats

We keep waiting for mortgage rates to increase, but Freddie Mac's weekly survey shows rates at their lowest point yet this year. With the average at 3.94% this week, buyers' purchasing power remains strong. 

According to TheMortgageReports.com, rates were expected to hit 4.3% this year, but are now headed in the opposite direction, despite a stronger economy. 

Of course, rates change daily, and many factors go into your interest rate, so the best resource is a lender you trust. If you think now may be the right time to take advantage of these rates and buy, call Ed Hunnicutt! We'd love to guide you through the process and help make your dreams of home ownership a reality!

Mount Pleasant Moms

Sun, May 14th 2017 4:00 pm by Cathy Hunnicutt Things to Do

Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas out there! In honor of Mother's Day, we want to share some of the best parts about being a Mom in Mount Pleasant. 

Things to do:

Thanks largely in part to our amazing weather, there is so much to do here! As a Mount Pleasant mom, it is hard to imagine how our friends in the North survive months inside, debilitated by the cold weather. We are so fortunate to have mild winters, and a climate that allows us to be outdoors the majority of the year. We have parks galore, and no mater where you live, the beach is just a quick drive away. Just think, for most people, the beach is a week long vacation they plan for all year. For Mount Pleasant moms, it's a wa...

Lowcountry Landscape: Mulch or Pine Straw?

Wed, May 3rd 2017 4:15 pm by Cathy Hunnicutt Home Improvements

As Realtors, we tend to know a little bit of everything when it comes to home improvements. From which kitchen countertops are best for red wine, to the most durable flowers for hot Charleston Summers, we are asked just about every question related to homes, home maintenance and home improvement. 

Today's debate: Mulch or Pine Straw for your landscaping needs.  Its a topic that is foreign to many of our Northern transplants, but pine straw is the most common flowerbed filler in the Lowcountry.  It is natural, inexpensive, and hides weeds better than mulch.  It is also low maintenance and easy to install.  Pine straw typically needs refreshed twice a year.  The downside? Its natural compo...
