Housing remains bullish. According to the Home Purchase Index, Fannie Mae found that 58% of Americans say it’s a good time to buy a home, and maybe as importantly 65% say it’s a good time to sell one! These sentiments likely have a lot to do with interest rates that, even though they have been bouncing around a bit, are 1% lower year over year and close to historical lows.
Additionally, rents have reached a national average of $1,465/ month in June, up $45 bucks from this time last year. Charlotte comes in at $1,243 up 5% since last year. Throw in rising consumer credit scores, and it really is a good time to call Wood-Williams Realty, LLC.!

That said, we wanted to share neighborhoods across Charlotte where we are active and provide some single-family activity data from the last 90 days:
|Neighborhood||Active Properties||Under Contract||Closed/Sold||Average Price||Cost Per Sq Ft|
This information was compiled from CMLS on 9/20/2019 at 11 AM. All single-family properties that identified themselves as being in those neighborhoods were used.
This is just a broad look at these neighborhoods. For an expert opinion give us a call. Next month look for a similar survey of condo activity.
Here’s a snapshot of our latest listings. We look forward to hearing from you!
