That’s right the January Charlotte MLS residential real estate statistics are in and they are stunning. In a good way for a change!

  • Charlotte Area Home sales up 40%
  • Home for Sale inventory down 30% to five months – historic lows for some neighborhoods (Montibello and Ardrey)
  • Buyer discount to list price down (92.6% of list price paid)
  • Days to sell 155 down from 165.

What are the numbers telling us?Home sales paper053

  • There is a lot of pent up home buyer demand in Charlotte – especially in selected south Charlotte neighborhoods
  • The supply/inventory of homes for sale in desirable neighborhoods like Montibello (1.5), Ardrery (1.1) and
    Mountainbrook (2.5) are well below the Charlotte average 5 months and near historic lows (see charts below). Yes Ardrey has only a 33 day supply and Montibello has 45 days before all homes are sold*. *Of course this is unlikely to happen as more homes come on the market.
  • The Charlotte residential real estate market is very healthy and for the first time in years Charlotte is closer to a sellers market than the protracted buyers market we’ve experienced.
