September 2017 Monthly Indicators Hilton-Head_MMI_2017-09
Every market is unique, yet the national sentiment has given rise to the notion that
housing markets are stalling. Although desirous buyers are out on an increasing
number of showings, there remains a limited number of desirable listings. And
although mortgage rates have remained enticingly low, home prices have reached
unaffordable levels for many new entrants into the housing pool at exactly the same
time that established owners are proving to be less interested in moving.
New Listings were down 16.9 percent to 434. Pending Sales decreased 11.0
percent to 292. Inventory shrank 12.9 percent to 2,169 units.
Prices moved higher as Median Sales Price was up 1.7 percent to $295,000. Days
on Market increased 18.2 percent to 156 days. Months Supply of Inventory was
down 17.4 percent to 5.7 months, indicating that demand increased relative to

employment outlooks, disparate incomes, varying new construction expectations
and potential housing policy shifts, regional differences are becoming more
prevalent and pronounced.
