March 2017 CharlestonByDay Newsletter
March is here, but it felt like spring all through February. The azaleas are already in bloom along with the tulips and camellias. Temperatures were in the 70's all month and we loved it. March features the Wine and Food Festival, Fashion Week, and the beginning of Flowertown Festival in Summerville. Also, the 70th Festival of House and Gardens begins on the 16th and runs until April 22, and don't forget the Cooper River Bridge Run on April 1.

While 2016 was our 2nd busiest year ever for Charleston Real Estate, 2017 has really started off with a bang. January was the busiest January we ever had. Inventory is on the low side and demand is very high. This could lead to prices going up even more. Currently, we are still below the trend line back to 1991, but that may change soon if the inventory stays this low. Fortunately, they are building lots of new construction all over the area. No one wants to leave and lots of people want to move to our great economy and lifestyle.
They are finishing construction on the new I-26 exit near Jedburg for the new Volvo plant. Volvo has started taking applications and the Volvo staff has begun to arrive.
Employees at Boeing just voted down the union and President Trump made a planned visit the next day. The remodeling of the airport is finished and was a little over budget, costing about 200 million dollars! BUT, it's fantastic. The have a Caviar and Bananas, Golden Bear Grill, Charleston Beer Works, Harvest and Grounds and others. Top Chef finally had its season in Charleston and it was a huge success. The culinary life is thriving here. At this rate, we may soon be BBQ capital of the US. I've never seen so many BBQ places and they are all exceptional.
