Charlotte Region’s Luxury Home Market Overview: December 2021
Latest news on Charlotte Region’s luxury housing market in December and what it means for you…
Charlotte Region’s single family luxury homes real estate market remained solid despite a 36.7% year-over-year 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. Median home sale prices were down slightly at 3.4%, while average sales prices increased 0.4% year-over-year.
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. December’s increase in closed and pending sales year-over-year can be attributed to the increase in new listings and continued demand for luxury homes.
