I understand that it is a sellers market is that still true? More people moving there than houses available?

Specifically Rock Hill, just wondering about the area--thanks.

People aren't really flocking to RH like they are to Fort Mill. When we were looking, we looked around RH as well as Fort Mill, and there is no shortage of homes for sale in RH. Some had been on the market for a while too.

I didn't think it was quite a seller's market but I thought that the real estate hasn't been affected as negatively as the rest of the country. I do believe it is taking houses longer to sell, even here in Fort Mill.

I think the price point might have a bit to do with it, too.

What do you mean by price point?

Price point has a few meanings, but in this case I was referring to the price ranges that homes are broken down by, typically based affordability levels. When someone says "I am looking for a home in the $175K to $200K range", they are describing their price point.

To clarify what I meant further... based on my unscientific observation, I would bet that homes selling in the price ranges considered affordable to the more statistically typical RH buyer are probably moving faster than homes built to a higher price point. This is probably especially true of new construction.

Thanks, now I understand. We are looking to buy, fix up, then re-sell in the Rock Hill area and were told that homes move rather quickly there. This is an investment adventure & we decided to try the Rock Hill area for that very purpose. Wish us luck!!

This is a low to moderate price range that we want to start with.

From my non-scientific observation, I think the lower priced and upper priced houses have taken a downturn, but your average, middle class homes are still moving relatively quickly. So in this area, i am thinking that the houses that are still moving well are in the $150s-300s (give or take some). I am not seeing many people snatching up the $50-100,000 fixer uppers.
