Tega Cay Homes Sales Report Comparing 2009 to 2008

Since we are coming to the close of the 2009 year, I prepared an analysis of home sales in Tega Cay SC comparing total home sales in 2009 to home sales in 2008. Although there are a couple weeks left in 2009, there will not be many closings occurring before the new year to significantly impact the 2009 sales numbers.

I have split Tega Cay homes sales into two categories. The first split is homes sales under $400,000. The second split is home sales over $400,000. I split the analysis in these two groups because the majority of the activity in Tega Cay and in the Fort Mill area is occurring with home sale transactions below $400,000.

    Seems like the market has hit bottom there. Great news since the only way to go now is up. Prices are staying fairly steady all things considered.

    This year, i’m sure home sales will increase if you will go forward on the trends. Improvements will come along the way and be sure to grip developments by 2010. I am looking forward to your market updates.
