I'm tossing around the idea of putting my townhouse (Fort Mill/Tega Cay) on the market. I've noticed less For Sale signs in my neighborhood, but I'm not sure if that's due to units selling or people deciding to stay (or rent). Just wondering if anyone has any insight on this area. Thanks!!

I am buying a home that has been on the market since last September. My agent told me to 180 days is normal in this market. It appears to me tht houses are still declining slightly, but I don't think they can get much lower.

What I'd do is hook up with an Allen Tate Agent or get on their website. They have these neat, customizable reports by neighborhood that they will send you monthly which shows:

What's for sale
What Sold (and how long it took)
Average sale price and average days to sold

It then has links to each property so you can drill down for more info. It completely answers your question about how the market / inventory is turning (or not) in your area. There's no obligation and easy for them to e-mail it to you.

Great info!

It sucks. I have an all brick house that was built as spec home that we can sell. Located in the Medical corridor of Rock Hill.

I think the market is starting to pick up some in the Fort Mill area. Definitely a big uptick in building. But I would say it is still very much a buyer's market

We just met with real estate agents here in Fort Mill. We were considering a move to south Charlotte. Ultimately we decided we wanted to stay in Fort Mill. ( been here 20 months). But, we did look at houses and spoke to several agents. Bottom line was... we are at the start of an uptick.....but it will last about 6 months until the next wave of backed- up foreclosures hits the market again. We still saw distressed homes in the Ballantyne area- short sales and foreclosures. People were still taking a price hit- just to move and get on with their lives. There were deals to be had! I'd definitely say its still a buyers market.
