Charlotte Real Estate Market Reports

 

* Pending Sales Report (Over $500k) for May 2018 – Lake Norman/Davidson, Charlotte, Union County & Buncombe County:

* Showing Trends Report (Over $500k) for May 2018 – Lake Norman/Davidson, Charlotte, Union County & Buncombe County:

Following suit, Showing Trends for May 2018 compared to this same time in 2017 were also up across all areas except Charlotte, which was down albeit by only 1%. This indicates a pretty tight inventory with showings about flat and pending sales down for the area as buyers struggle to find homes they like enough to go see much less buy. Lake Norman showings were up by 20% as were both Union and Buncombe Counties by 26%-27%, right in line with their upward pending sales trends.
