Southwest Charlotte/Steele Creek housing update for January 2019. Charlotte, North Carolina’s southwest/Steele Creek area (28273 and 28278 zip codes) continued trends we’ve seen all year. Home prices increased in January 2019 (both by double digits). In spite of an increase in new listings, inventory remained low, especially in affordable homes, and particularly in the 28273 zip code, which had less than a one month supply of homes for sale. Homes continue to sell quickly, as well.
