Listings per month decreased from 106 in November to 95 in December.  These new listings indicate fewer homes going on the market during the months of November and December.  I would expect to see these numbers increase as spring bring more PCS moving with the Air Force.

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 kim@agentownedrealty.com and I will help you in any way possible.
