Matthews Housing Market Update: December 2021
Latest news on the Matthews (28105 zip code) real estate market in December 2021 and what it means for you…
Matthews housing market continues to see low inventory with the months supply of inventory just barely over one-half month at 0.6 months (down 25% year-over-year from 0.8 months in December 2020 and down from 1.8 months in December 2019). The months supply of inventory also dropped month-over-month. However you “slice it,” Matthews has been a home seller’s market for at least three years now. Inventory of homes was down 30.5% year-over-year, despite an increase in new listings of homes of 34.5% year-over-year.
Average sale prices of homes increased 21.9% year-over-year to $412,415. Median home sale prices increased 22.5% to $395,000 year-over-year. Average home prices have increased about $77,000 as compared with December 2019. Median home prices have increased almost $107,000 compared with December 2019. Price per square foot increased 22.4% year-over-year to $191/square foot.
Average days on market were 9 days, down 47.1% from 17 days in the same time period one year ago and from 41 days in December 2019. Average days on market were also down 2 days month-over-month. Median days on market were just 4 days, down 20% year-over-year and down 10 days compared with December 2019.
Closed sales decreased 5.3% year-over-year. Pending sales increased 23.5% year-over-year. No doubt the increase in new listings helped pending sales increase. With the ongoing lack of inventory, however, it’s no surprise that closed sales were down. There is also the question of how many prospective buyers are now priced out of the Matthews housing market due to home prices that have continued to increase by double digits.
With a median selling price of 100% of asking price, Matthews home buyers should expect minimal to no room to negotiate.
