The Hilton Head area real estate market gets a lot of attention, but by the numbers so should the northern part of the county.
Those sold through the Beaufort-Jasper County Realtors were up 8.5% from $360,170 in October of last year to $390,940 in October of this year. Those sold through the Hilton Head Area Realtors were still up but by 2.6 fewer percentage points, at 5.9% higher.
Condos saw the largest median price gain from the same period. Prices increased 17.6% from $272,000 to $320,000. Properties that cost $150,000 and below sold the quickest and were on the market for 58 days on average. Homes $750,000 to $1 million sold the slowest and were on the market for 120 days on average.
Beaufort County Realtors still broker some sales in Hilton Head and north of the Broad River, which is why their most expensive median home sales show a Hilton Head zip code as the most expensive.
Their market reports include the most comprehensive data for northern Beaufort County and Jasper County. The data is broken down by ZIP code.
The zipcodes with the most expensive median home sale prices and their identifying areas were:
29928 (South-side of Hilton Head) — $1,050,000
29920 (Saint Helena Island, Fripp Island, Dataw Island, Fort Fremont, Frogmore) — $660,000
