Charlotte Region real estate market in April 2021 saw continued strengthening. Charlotte’s housing market has essentially bounced back after the pandemic-related lockdowns one year ago that put real estate activity on pause. Home prices continued to increase. Days on market, inventory, and months supply of homes were substantially lower than in April 2020. With so little inventory, one could say that it’s on “life support” these days. Mecklenburg, Union, Lancaster, York and Gaston Counties in the Charlotte region essentially mirrored the overall housing market activity.

Charlotte Region’s Home Sales Activity Strengthened In April 2021

 

Latest news on the greater Charlotte region’s real estate market in April and what it means for you…

 

Charlotte Region Housing Market Overview April 2021April 2021 saw the continuation of the strong housing market in the greater Charlotte region in 2020 and could be considered as having bounced back from the effects of the pandemic-related lockdowns in April 2020. Pending contract and closed sales activity shows buyer interest and demand returning to and exceeding pre-pandemic levels and straining inventory. Historically low interest rates continue to fuel much of the buyer demand, as do the years of steady population growth in the Greater Charlotte area.

 

With Realtor.com recently ranking Charlotte third in the top 10 Metros for 2021, the Greater Charlotte market will most likely continue to heat up this year to due to razor-thin inventory and the number of buyers in the market.

 

Housing inventory remained at critically low levels with new listings not keeping up with demand, despite a year-over-year increase. With just over one-half of a month’s of supply of homes, we continue to see some of the lowest levels of inventory on record in the Charlotte region. This presents a unique opportunity for sellers who are ready to list, as new listings receive high visibility and spend less time on market.

 

Averaging 20 days on market, homes are selling nearly as fast as they are listed. Multiple offers on homes are again a staple of the Charlotte region real estate market. Both median and average home sale prices were up by double digits across the region year-over-year. The critically low levels of inventory will continue to impact home prices in the coming months. Lack of adequate inventory to satisfy buyer demand is what will hold the market back in terms of sales momentum.
