Charleston, SC (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
“The market stabilized nicely throughout 2012, and since January of this year, consumer confidence and buying activity have surpassed most experts’ predictions,” said Josephine Traina, Broker Associate with Carolina One Real Estate.
It’s no secret now that the Charleston-area housing market will remain upbeat as demand quickens and consumers are more confident. “We’re half way through 2013 and one thing is abundantly clear: The bottom of the Charleston real estate market has come and gone,” said Traina. As a result of the strengthening market, Carolina One Real Estate has become the Number One Real Estate Company in the Charleston area.
Traina, The Number One Broker on the Peninsula for 2012, reveals her findings after studying real estate numbers for the first half of 2013 and comparing them with previous years:
Likewise, metro Charleston’s reinvigorated real estate market has triggered a “revival” in new construction. “The builders, small and large, who did survive the downturn, are now thriving, including a number who are new to the region.” Builders scour for available lots and many frame houses “as fast as they can to keep up with this new overnight demand.”
Traina also cited another accolade for the Charleston area this summer. Readers voted Charleston as the “Top City in the U.S. and Canada” in the Travel + Leisure 2013 World’s Best Awards. The readers picked six local hotels among the top lodging spots: Charleston Place, Market Pavilion, Wentworth Mansion, Planters Inn, French Quarter Inn and The Sanctuary hotel on Kiawah Island. “For those of us lucky to live here, we can just sit back and enjoy this world-famous city we call home,” said Traina.
