As you know the residential market went through a low until about 2010 and it has been recovering ever since. And we have had a pretty good year in the last 12 months in Mount Pleasant, SC with inventory going down substantially and demand rising and prices are actually going up (with only 3 and a half months inventory in terms of absorption). However, there are a couple of things that may slow down our market growth. One is the unusual growth in inventory - normally after June/July inventory starts decreasing until the end of the year. This year it was a little bit unusual it started increasing again in the past 2 months (as of the end of September). The other thing that might put a little damper on our explosive HOT market is the re-pricing of flood insurance by FEMA. FEMA has decided not to subsidize flood insurance nationwide and as a consequence our flood insurance prices will go up all over the coastal areas. However, there are a lot of opportunities out there - a lot of new construction projects being built, prices are going up, and people are finding that if they price their home right it will sell in a matter of a few days for a good price.

First Time Home Buyer! New Testimonial!

"Buying a house for the first time can be an exciting yet frightening process.  There are so many options out there and so many variables that come into play. It is not an easy decision but one that you make with your head as well as your heart.
A Lopez Closing, Daniel Island SC Home Sale
I have been in this country for 13 years now and I knew it was time for me to buy a piece of land to call home.  I happened to know a realtor, Alan Donald.  He helped my family buy property on Daniel Island.  I have to say, he made the experience and process a really practical and smooth one. He helped me figure out what I was really looking for without ever pushing me to buy anything I didn’t want. He gave me the time to think things through and helped me find all the information I needed it to make appropriate decisions.  He showed me all the places I wanted to see even if they were not what I had initially planned for.
Looking for my house was a growing and evolving process that Alan guided me through.  We made a team and I felt safe all the way through to the final purchase. You have to have a connection with the home you are buying and see yourself living there. I can happily say that I have bought my first home, on Daniel Island.  I am very excited about my new place and very grateful for having Alan Donald, such a knowledgeable, honest and trusting realtor working with me along the way. I highly recommend his services and I would certainly work with him again for future purchases."
