We wanted to let you know the real estate market for the first quarter of this year, both on and off the island, shows great results when compared to this time last year. And if you'll remember, last year was a excellent year for us. Please see the links below for all the data that's provided by the Multiple Listing Service of Hilton Head Island and the Hilton Head Area Association of REALTORS®.
For the island as a whole, home sales were up 20.7 percent and the median price increased 4.6 percent to $530,000. All this activity has encouraged more homes to come to the market increasing our inventory by 18.8 percent. Villa sales were up 16.0 percentand the median price rose by 17.9 percent to $237,500. New inventory of villas on Hilton Head Island up-ticked by 4.4 percent.
Home sales in Sea Pines increased by 9.5 percent and the median price rose 7.3 percent to $657,500. It's encouraging to see new inventory increasing by 15.2 percent to give home buyers a few more good options to consider. Villa sales in Sea Pines were even, year-over-year, but the median price increased by 18.4 percent as our inventory of villas dropped by 14.4 percent.
