Charlotte Region Housing Update For September 2020September 2020 continued to see solid strengthening in the housing market in the greater Charlotte region, despite the ongoing pandemic. Pending contract and closed sales activity shows buyer interest with demand returning to pre-pandemic levels and higher due to historically low interest rates fueling much of the buyer demand

 

Housing inventory remained at record lows and new listings are not keeping up with demand despite an increase in new listings in September. At 1.1 months of supply, it is the lowest level 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 34 cumulative days on market and 29 days on market until sale, homes are selling nearly as fast as they are listed. Multiple offers on homes have once again returned to the Charlotte region real estate market. Both median and average home sale prices were up across the region.
