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.
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.
The Lake Norman area luxury market got off to a solid start for 2018 although, in several communities, the range below $1 million took until March to crank into high gear. Most areas lagged last year’s first quarter in that range but have also seen a large surge in pending contracts in recent weeks, which portends a very good second quarter. In the luxury range over $1 million, Cornelius saw a strong start to the year, particularly in the $1 million to $1.99 million range.
Cornelius also currently has 7 homes pending above $2 million. Mooresville has seen an upswing in the million-plus market in pending contracts heading into April, as has the West Shore area.
Cornelius Reports Mixed First Quarter
Despite active showing trends, luxury price segments in Cornelius produced mixed first-quarter results. The range under $1 million saw a slight downturn from last year’s first quarter, yet enjoyed a huge burst of pending contracts (33) as we move into the 2nd quarter.
The luxury range over $1 million saw a solid uptick from last year, with 10 houses closing vs 6 previously, and a jump in pendings with 13, including a very strong 7 homes pending over $2 million. The first quarter also saw the first resale over $4 million in Cornelius in several years, an Ivester Jackson listing on Connor Quay. The Peninsula currently reports 27 active homes for sale.
Davidson’s luxury market tends to follow the more traditional spring upturn pattern, and this year appears to be no exception. While sales in the sub-million dollar range dropped slightly in Q1 vs last year’s totals (15 vs 17), pending contracts surged to 24 heading into April.
The million dollar plus market declined slightly with 3 closings vs 4 last year in the same period, while currently, 2 homes are pending in Davidson over 1 million, including this year’s high water mark, a 1.55 million dollar Ivester Jackson listing in Westmoreland Farm. River Run currently reports 20 homes for sale.
Mooresville’s luxury segment started slowly but, like its adjacent communities, has now picked up steam. The sub-million dollar range saw a visible downturn in closings from 2017 (36 vs 46 sold), yet also saw 52 homes in that range go pending.
The million dollar plus segment roughly matched last year’s first quarter, with 13 homes trading vs 14 last year, and 19 homes currently pending over $1 million. The first quarter’s high bar closing was a 3 million dollar Ivester Jackson listing at Mariner Pointe. The Point has also seen inventory come down to 45 homes active, which should point to more balanced conditions for buyers and sellers with 11 homes now pending.
The West Shore
The West Shore communities of Denver, Terrell, and Sherrills Ford saw a solid start to 2018. First quarter sales in the sub-million dollar range nearly matched last year’s first quarter with 20 deals closing vs 22 last year, and 24 more pending as we head into April. The million dollar plus range saw similar action to last year, with 3 homes trading in both this year and last year’s first quarter. There are currently 5 homes pending on the West Shore listed at over $1 million.
Ivester Jackson Named “Christie’s International Affiliate of the Year.”
Last month, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Christie’s International Real Estate convened its prestigious annual owner’s conference, comprised of leaders from Christie’s flagship luxury network of 145 of the world’s leading real estate brokerages.
The conference annually recognizes the pinnacle of marketing for its network by awarding an Overall International Affiliate of The Year.
Ivester Jackson Distinctive Properties was honored as Christie’s “Best of the Best” Overall International Affiliate of The Year for excellence in innovation, marketing, and growth. “Since joining Christie’s 4 years ago, Ivester Jackson
has grown by more than 200%, the company is now the top seller of homes valued at over $2 million in the Charlotte region,” said Christie’s CEO, Dan Conn. “It excelled in every category.”
Overall, Lake Norman’s luxury market looks as though it will slightly outperform 2017’s very solid performance. Heading into April, most price ranges are either in line with 2017’s totals or trending ahead. Looking forward, overall showings in the luxury price ranges are running 3% ahead of last year through the first quarter which provides an indication that second quarter closings should meet or exceed last year’s same period. In particular, the ultra-luxury range above $2 million appears to be headed for one of its better years, as lower inventories and showing activity currently running 8% ahead of last year’s first quarter pointing to very solid activity in the $2 million range.
Last year, the Lake saw 30 resales above $2 million, this year, with 17 either sold or currently under contract, the area seems headed for a total beyond 30 transactions, which should further bring inventory in that range down into a more balanced buyer/seller market, after several years of high inventory levels.
When hiring a real estate agent do your research, read online reviews, ask friends for references, and make sure they have certain traits; such as honesty and integrity, knowledge of your local housing market, and focus.
Ivester Jackson | Christie’s has more than 50 highly successful agents in the Charlotte market ready to help you today.
Two of our agents, Kim Raymond & Lisa McCrossan, were just named “Rising Stars” in Charlotte real estate by The Charlotte Observer.
Here’s a sample of just a few positive reviews you will find online.
“Lisa is a true professional. We had our house listed with 2 other agents who like most real estate agents come in tell you all about their marketing programs “that will sell your home quickly”. They both fell short of expectations. Lisa however came in with a solid plan, brought in a interior designer to help stage the house. She made several suggestions on painting and removing wallpaper that made all the difference in the world. After 9+ months on the market with other realtors. Lisa had an offer within 30 days!
It is amazing what a little extra work will accomplish.
Lisa is the best realtor I have worked with in 25 years.”
“If we had to do it all again I would not hesitate to list our home with Christy Chaffe, Ivester Jackson. We were well represented from start to finish: our agent’s expertise, the amazing marketing materials created for our home to a smooth closing with no unexpected surprises. Thanks again, Christy Chaffee!” twoangelsrus
“We worked with Leslie to purchase our first home about a year after we moved to Charlotte. She spent several months with us, driving around and just looking at houses and very quickly helped us figure out what we wanted. Over this time, we developed a great relationship with her. She was open and honest with us about all of the houses we looked at, and at no point in time did we feel any pressure to make offers or speed up our buying process. Once we decided to make an offer, Leslie’s key strengths kicked in– she is VERY organized and a tough negotiator.”
“Jackie was great from start to finish! From both the seller and buyer aspect she listened to our wants and needs and left very little work on our end. We always new she had our best interest in mind. When issues arose, she calmed our fears and guided us through it with ease. She comes highly recommended by us!” Kaitlyn Richer
“The epitome of professionalism and personalized service. Dee was great and so vital to us finding the house that was a perfect fit. We truly cannot say enough great things about all that Dee did to make finding and buying a house easy and painless. A+++ with everything.” Jay S.
