South Carolina’s coastal real estate market is gaining back some of the ground it lost during a massive downturn that started in 2007.

But Columbia’s market – where the setback was much less severe than the coast – is still off from 2009 and lingering around 2002 levels, according to a new report from the S.C. Realtors trade group.

“You look at a law firm, a doctor’s office, a publicly traded company, they lose 40 percent of their business, they’re gone,” said longtime Columbia real estate agent Jay Graham. “That’s how far we’ve fallen (from the peak). Every deal I have, I just look up at the sky and say, ‘Thank you.’ “
