In mid March, 2020, the state of South Carolina shut down. Schools closed, restaurants and bars moved to take out or curbside delivery. Non-essential stores were shuttered. There’s been a lot of speculation as to how these changes would impact the local market and Aiken real estate sales.
We’ve compared the data from the shutdown period of March 15th-May 20, 2020 with the same time period last year. The results may surprise you, and if buying or selling is in your future, you might be very pleased!
