A recent article in the Morning News reports that area real estate is in a “sellers market” according to the Pee Dee Realtor Association. By definition a “sellers market” occurs when demand to purchase homes increases over the supply of homes for sale, thus pushing prices higher.
The Florence area may not meet the definition of a “hot market,” like others around the country where buyers enter into bidding wars for existing properties, but the statistics do show that prices have increased by 7.5% from 2018 to 2019.
