UNDER CONTRACT IN BIRKDALE IN HUNTERSVILLE, NC8948 Devonshire Drive Charlotte region's housing market still has less than one month of inventory  and is still seeing homes sell quickly and with multiple offers... especially in communities like Birkdale where the months supply of homes is just 0.3 months. In the case of my clients, who are relocating from Colorado this summer, the third time was the charm in securing a home in Birkdale after losing out in two prior multiple offer situations. My clients had quickly focused in on Birkdale as their preferred neighborhood for a two major reasons. First, they are avid golfers. Birkdale is a master-planned community built around an 18-hole Arnold Palmer-designed golf course. Second, Birkdale is just five minutes from their children's new schoo...

A Shrinking Pool Of BuyersPotential homebuyers can’t help but notice that the number of their competitors for Charlotte homes  is shrinking. This is evident in a number of trends, including fewer Google searches for homes for sale, a decreasing number of requests for home tours, a drop in the number of new mortgage applications, and the Redfin Homebuyer Demand Index, which tracks the number of requests for home-buying services from Redfin agents, fell by 7%.The result is a gradual cooling down of buying activity, which in the long term is expected to exert a moderating pressure on home prices. With mortgage rates in the Charlotte area at their highest level since 2011, it’s no surprise the number of mortgage applications has fallen by 70% from last year. However, it’s unrealistic to exp...

Latest news on the Greater Charlotte Region's real estate market in April 2022...What you need to know... What it means for you...  With median home prices reaching record highs in April 2022, we saw the continuation of the strong housing market in the 16 county greater Charlotte region. Buyer demand continued to exceed pre-pandemic levels straining inventory and sales momentum. Sales were down for a fourth consecutive month as was new listing activity in 2022. A fast-paced market, which it clearly is with homes seeing 16 average days on market, means buyers have less time to make decisions and negotiate, as multiple offers in high-demand areas cause homes to sell and close quickly. MARKET OVERVIEW FOR CHARLOTTE REGION: APRIL 2022 Pent-up demand from the days of the pandemic continued t...

 Do I REALLY NEED A Mortgage Pre-Approval To Make An Offer On A Home?A mortgage pre-approval is the first step in your journey to purchasing a home, giving you a competitive edge when you make an offer on a house. Being intentional and competitive are musts when buying a home.  That's why pre-approval is so important today. Pre-approval from a lender is the only way to know your true price range and how much money you can borrow for your loan.     Why Does A Mortgage Pre-approval Matter So Much Today? Today, there are many more buyers looking for homes today than there are homes available for sale. That's creating some serious competition. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average home is getting 4.8 offers per sale. As a result, bidding wars are still common....
