In Sumter, South Carolina real estate we saw home sales fall from 88 properties in July to 76 in August 2011.  The number of properties pending in Sumter was lower at the end of July vs June and the decrease in closings was expected based upon those numbers.  The number of homes under contract or pending at the end of August was down from the July numbers, so I would expect to see the number of closed units for September to be less than August.

As I recommend every month, please consult a local Realtor® about the local market.  Even though the Sumter Board of Realtors provides data, this data is very specific to Sumter County and residential home sales only.  I do not include other counties in our Board of Realtors nor do I include lots or land.
I hope you find this real estate market report for Sumter County, SC informative.  If you have any suggestions or questions, please email me at and I will help you in any way possible.
