According to the numbers at a macro level, Charleston’s median home price is generally sited to be somewhere between $180,000 and $250,000. However, as those of us who live here know, the median home price can vary significantly, neighborhood to neighborhood and block to block. The reality is that the median home prices for the various areas, range from $92,000-$1,762,500. That’s a huge difference!!
So here’s the real deal. Please note, these are median ASKING prices of homes currently on the market, and I only included areas within half-an-hour drive from Downtown Charleston – what most of us consider to be the ‘metro area’. The general rule is, the closer you are to the ocean or waterways the higher prices are – though you can find pockets of affordability in those areas.
