Housing Market Overview Charlotte Region December 2020

December 2020 continued to see a strong housing market in the greater Charlotte region, despite the ongoing pandemic and the holiday season. Pending contract and closed sales activity shows buyer interest with demand returning to and exceeding pre-pandemic levels. Historically low interest rates continue to fuel much of the buyer demand.

 

With Realtor.com recently ranking Charlotte third in the top 10 Metros for 2021, the market will most likely continue to heat up this year to due to razor-thin inventory and the number of buyers in the market.

 

Housing inventory remained at record lows with new listings not keeping up with demand, despite an increase in new listings in December. With less than a one month of supply of homes, we continue to see some of the lowest levels 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 25 days on market, 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 year-over-year.
