Residential Real Estate Trends in The Midlands

In understanding whether it is the right time to buy or sell in the real estate market, people tend to look at “generalities” when it is more helpful to look at specifics. As an example, you might read that sales are either “up” or “down”, when in fact certain price ranges may be up and others down. To help you understand the market for your home, or the one you want to buy, the information below shows the number of sales in every price range, the average days on market, and the percent of the overall market sales at that price range represents. Find the price range of your home, and then you can see what is happening to homes in that price range over the past month. We update this section every four weeks.

With all the current tax incentives, I decided it was time to buy my first home. I knew nothing about the housing market or the process of buying a home so it was very important that I chose an above average REALTOR. I went with Zack Wheeler as my REALTOR, and I can say with conviction that I am thankful that I did. I ended up with my dream home that would have never happened if Zack would not been so tenacious. The house had just hit the market and was definitely priced to sell. We put a contract on it that day and beat out several other serious buyers. Zack was not the oldest REALTOR in Columbia which proved best. His endurance and passion for the job gave me a leg up on the competition. I also felt like his only client obtaining his full attention at all times. I was ALWAYS kept in the loop and was notified with every decision. With all the communication I now feel like an expert myself. If you are a reader of this testimony and searching for a home, choosing Zack as a REALTOR is a decision you will thank yourself for!
