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%.

Charlotte Market Snapshot: Luxury Property in SouthPark, Myers Park & Eastover

Market Snapshot: Myers Park & Eastover

First Quarter in  Myers Park and Eastover Trails 2017 But Rallies in March

The first quarter sold activity in Myers Park and Eastover trailed last year’s sold results by a significant margin of over 50%, which by itself might indicate a serious slowdown. However, showing activity in the area had been running at last year’s levels. It appears that as March comes to a close, pending activity, particularly in the $1 million plus category, trended upward significantly with 25 homes pending to close in that price range, including 2 above $3 million in value. The sub $1 million range continues to lag early 2017 and will warrant watching in the second quarter.

 

Market Snapshot: SouthPark, Carmel CC, & Quail Hollow

SouthPark Area Matches Q1 2017, $1 Million+ Market Surges

The SouthPark area, which stretches from Foxcroft and Barclay Downs southward down Carmel, Park, and Colony Roads to the Quail Hollow area, saw a solid start to 2018. 48 homes closed in the $500K – $999K range, while 12 closed over $1 million (including a Charlotte high-bar sale at $5.3 million in Seven Eagles). With showings in both ranges running at or above 2017 levels for the first quarter, buyers in the 1 million plus range got serious and put 31 homes under contract, including an impressive 13 over $2 million, one of the strongest performances in any luxury price segment in the entire regional MLS. Foxcroft, Old Foxcroft, Pellyn Wood, and the Carmel Country Club area all saw action at the high end of the market.

 

 


Charlotte Agents in the Community – DUMC Guatemala

Clean air to breathe and water to drink, excellent medical & dental care, a good education, these are just a few of the things we take for granted living in America, but in countries like Guatemala, one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere life isn’t easy for most of the population.

A Home in Guatemala

For 6 years Ivester Jackson agent Melinda Meade-White has answered the call to help the people of Guatemala gain access to these items and more by traveling to their country with Davidson United Methodist Church.

Melinda says “It’s such a wonderful week we get to spend with the people of Guatemala, building special relationships while offering much-needed assistance.” Many times Melinda’s group travels into very remote villages in the highlands where they build stoves that vent to the outside. Traditional stoves in the homes are non-vented trapping smoke inside leading to respiratory problems.

Salud y Paz School

The team works on many other projects as well, including building churches, teaching children Vacation Bible School, medical exams, and seeds and nutrition training. Education is important for economic development and in this area, missionaries offer scholarships, basic computer training, and Micro-finance loans. They also help provide clean water by supplying water filters to families which help clean the dirty water that they get from community wells.

Melinda says “we work with locals as our interpreters since we have to translate from English to Spanish to local dialect Chi-Chi.”

The group’s mission is to work with the people, not for them so the community will be involved and benefit while working together for greater goals.
