Did you know that Berkeley County is #35 on the US Census Bureau’s list of fastest-growing counties in the US? It’s also the fastest growing county in South Carolina. Other counties in South Carolina that made the list include Horry County at #73 and Dorchester County at #97.
As of July 2012, the population was 189,781, up almost 12,000 people since 2010. We look forward to seeing continued growth in the area and in our community.

The Charleston-area residential market is continuing to grow with sales in 2013 outpacing last year by 18.7%.
In February, 722 homes sold at a median price of $181,334 in the region, according to data released by the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors. Sales activity hasn’t been this high in February since 2008 when 733 homes sold.
Year-to-date, 1,367 homes have sold at a median price of $181,917. Available inventory has also decreased by about 1,000 homes when compared with this time last year. Currently, 5,632 homes are available on the Charleston Multiple Listing Service.
“When you look at the last decade of market activity, you can see how well our market is performing following the economic downturn,” said Owen Tyler, 2013 CTAR president. “More importantly, you can clearly see that the activity in 2004 and 2006, particularly the sales activity, was abnormal and the sales and pricing activity we’re seeing now is indicative of a more balanced and sustainable market.”
Association members and multiple listing service executives expect sales and pricing to continue to trend upward in 2013, but say that low inventory may lead to more pricing growth than anticipated. Year-to-date, prices are 4% higher than where they were last year.
“Many areas of our region are squarely in seller’s market territory,” said Dave Sansom, 2013 Charleston MLS president . “That doesn’t mean that sellers can start overpricing their homes and expect them to sell, but it does mean that they have a bit more room to negotiate for the price they want than they have in recent years.”
Across the tri-county region, Berkeley County saw 171 homes sell in February at a median price of $160,000. In Charleston County, 371 homes sold at a median price of $239,500, while 154 homes sold in Dorchester County at a median price of $154,250.
If only we had been there to see this…

A flash mob broke out Wednesday at Publix at Cane Bay, but about all you’ll get is this lousy story.
Store management — at a level higher than the local folks — got a little skittish about having media there to record the event, so even though local photographers were ready to shoot, all they could do was watch as nearly 30 seniors box-stepped, ball-changed and boogied between the Easter candy and ice cream cake displays.
A grand total of one photo captured the event.
Retirement community Del Webb’s Come Dance With Me Line Dance Club planned and executed the spontaneous dances for the store’s busiest time, noon on Senior Day, the day those 60 and older get 5 percent off.
“We’ve been working on this for a month,” said J.R. Van Vechten, who with his wife, Judy, leads the dance club.
As shoppers streamed into the store before the event, many greeted each other and stopped to catch up, some in the know, but many unaware of what was about to happen.
As the strands of “Mama Maria” started playing over a boom box, the Van Vechtens began strutting their stuff as others joined in.
They finished their seven-minute performance with the “Florida Boogie.”
Some spectators captured the event on cellphones, and all had big smiles on their faces as the crowd disbursed.
“That really was a sight to see,” shopper Jennifer Roberts said.
