#ColumbiaAgenda: Home Sales Prices, Mardi Gras Parade, NAI Columbia, Most Influential: Roslyn Clark Artis, Nuking the Moon

Here's a Story About Median Home Sales Prices And Five Metropolitan Areas: Home prices in the Charleston-North Charleston metro are not only the highest in the state, they beat out two nearby big-city markets, Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell and Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia, according to a report by the house-hunting site RealtyHop.

Based on December median home sale prices for one- to five-bedroom homes, Charleston bests Columbia and Greenville-Anderson-Mauldin in each category, while costing more than Atlanta in all but one-bedroom homes and Charlotte in all but four-bedroom homes. 

Overall, the Columbia market was the lowest, while Greenville actually witnessed price declines from one-bedroom to two bedrooms, a fact that could be attributable to the sale of one-bedroom luxury condos.

Some perspective matters: the median home sales price of a one-bedroom home in New York-Newark-Jersey City was $549,000; again, conventional wisdom would suggest the sale of luxury condos plays a role in that price.

The median sales prices are as follows:

One-Bedroom
Atlanta, $210,000
Charlotte, $155,000
Charleston,  $179,000
Columbia, $72,000
Greenville, $139,500

Two-Bedroom
Atlanta, $210,000
Charlotte, $165,000
Charleston, $200,000
Columbia, $110,000
Greenville, $129,500

Three-Bedroom
Atlanta, $215,000
Charlotte, $235,000
Charleston, $245,000
Columbia, $149,900
Greenville, $196,591

Four-Bedroom
Atlanta, $299,900
Charlotte, $359,000
Charleston, $335,000
Columbia, $219,000
Greenville, $284,250
