November is here and we didn’t have any hurricanes!!
We did have a tornado and a lot of rain though.
But Charleston has weathered the storm nicely, as always.
The weather is incredible right now.
The humidity has gone and we’re in the 70’s during the day and the 50’s at night.
Having said that, the Coastal Carolina Fair starts this weekend and lasts through Nov 8.
That is usually the locals’ sign for a cold snap.
We didn’t have one last year.
Disney on Ice will be at the N Chas PAC from the 19-22. The Charleston International Film Festival is also going on at the Charleston Music Hall Downtown until Nov 8.

With all that this city has to offer, you might imagine that the real estate market is doing well.
And you’d be right.
We’re setting records for this time of year.
This will be the 3rd busiest year ever for Charleston real estate and median sales price is about $235k.
While that’s the highest it’s ever been, it’s still below where we should be.
We’re catching up to the trend line though.
I expect the median sales price to be over $250k next year.
We won’t remain undervalued for long.
Conde Naste no longer allows us to compete with big cities for the best tourist city in the world.
They’ve created some new categories and they just voted us #1 small city in the world.
I just hope we remain a small city.
Seems like half the population of Ohio is moving here!!
