Tega Cay, South Carolina housing market remained very much a home seller’s market in December 2021 evidenced by key indicators such as lower months supply of homes, less housing inventory, and fewer days on market in December 2021 compared with December 2020.
Tega Cay’s months of housing inventory was 0.7 months, down 41.7% year-over-year from 1.2 months in December 2020 and 2.5 months in December 2019. Housing inventory was down 39.5% year-over-year. New listings increased 25% year-over-year and sold as quickly as they came on market.
Pending sales increased 28% in Tega Cay in December 2021 compared with one year ago, most likely due to the uptick in new listings during the month. Tega Cay’s closed sales decreased 43.2% year-over-year. Lack of inventory in previous months, no doubt, contributed to the lower sales.
On average, homes sold in 17 days, down 5 days compared with the same month one year ago and down 5 days month-over-month. In December 2019, average days on market were 71. Median days on market decreased 4 days to just 3 days in December 2021 and down 2 days month-over-month. In December 2019 median days on market were 68.

On average, listed homes had 15.1 showings, up 51% from 10 showings in December 2020 and from 7.4 showings in December 2019. Clearly, it’s a matter of more buyers “chasing” after fewer homes.
Average price of sold homes increased 6.9% to $459,651, while the median sale price dropped slightly by 0.5% to $403,065 compared with the same month one year ago.
