Charleston area home sales were up 14 percent this year though November, extending the housing industry’s steady recovery from the real estate downturn, a trade group said today.

The Charleston Trident Association of Realtors said 845 homes changed hands last month at a median price of $192,500, an increase of about 200 sales compared with the same period last year.

This year to date, 9,662 homes have sold at a median price of $190,081, a 14 percent increase in sales volume and a 5.6 percent increase in median price.

The figures are preliminary and are based on all homes sold through the Charleston Trident Multiple Listing Service.
