The Resurrection of the Handy Man Special in Charleston – Wagener Terrace and North Central

Update 9/15 – Since I wrote this blog, two more handy man specials in Wagener Terrace and North Central have gone under contract at 144 Hester St and 9 Laurel, and the price has been reduced on a few others.

Back in May, I noticed what I thought could become a trend in handy man specials* and created this blog post about it.  Rather than publish my thoughts immediately, I decided to wait on the market a bit because I was afraid my theory might be wrong.  (Doesn’t everyone prefer to be right??)  At the beginning of this week, I took a client to see some fixer-upper homes in the Charleston Peninsula neighborhoods of Wagener Terrace and North Central, and less than four days later, two of the five we considered went under contract.  I thought this kind of action warranted further investigation…could my May hypothesis be coming true?

Hypothesis: I believe there is a resurrection of the Handy Man Special in Wagener Terrace and North Central.  Let’s look at the numbers to show you why.  (Click here for a map if you are unfamiliar with the Charleston Peninsula neighborhoods.)

7 homes sold in the past six months, and only 4 sold in the prior six months.    But – an additional 10 homes are currently under contract with only 17 more available (only 4 of which are in Wagener Terrace).  In an area of 2000+ homes, that looks like some serious action to me folks.  Wagener Terrace and North Central are hot, hot, hot.
So check out the lists after the jump for what is available and what is under contract.  Is there a little gem in there for you?

*A handy man special is any home which needs significant renovation
