Charlotte Region’s Luxury Home Market Improves In August 2021
Latest news on Charlotte Region’s luxury housing market in August and what it means for you…
Charlotte Region’s single family luxury homes real estate market improved in August despite a 35.7% decline in inventory. This low level of inventory has not been seen in well over a decade. Days on market, both average and median, also were down significantly year-over-year, as was the months supply of inventory. Luxury home sellers continued to see a higher sale price as a percent of listing price. Both median and average sales prices decreased somewhat year-over-year. It’s hard to say if the decrease reflects a reduction in home values versus the price mix of homes sold in August 2021.
Earlier this year there was concern that luxury home buyers might “give in” to buyer fatigue and take a “wait and see” position due to frustrations caused by multiple offers, declines in inventory, and the lack of inventory. Thus far this does not appear to be the case and the luxury market remains a seller’s market.
