Despite the ongoing pandemic and attendant home showing restrictions from late March into May, Mecklenburg County remained a home seller’s market as evidenced by higher home prices, lower inventory, and fewer days on market.
Latest news on the Mecklenburg County real estate market and what it means for you…
Second Quarter 2020 Mecklenburg County, North Carolina home sales kept the County a seller’s market with just 1.2 months of inventory despite the pandemic. Mecklenburg County includes the seven cities and towns of Charlotte, Pineville, Matthews, Mint Hill, Davidson, Huntersville, Cornelius.
During the second quarter of 2020, Mecklenburg County saw both housing inventory and the months supply of homes decrease substantially compared with the second quarter of 2019. Both median and average sale prices increased during the first quarter of 2020 compared with the same time period in 2019. These price increases can be attributed to the razor-thin inventory. Days on market were 32 — down 7.2% versus the same period one year ago and down 9 days from the first quarter 2020.
Mecklenburg County homes continued to sell quickly, however closed sales in the second quarter of 2020 decreased 19.8% compared to the same quarter one year ago. The home showing restrictions during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, no doubt, were a primary reason for the drop in closed sales.
