Latest news on the Greater Charlotte Region's real estate market in October 2022...What you need to know... What it means for you...  October 2022 home sales were down year-over-year for a 10th consecutive month. Pending sales were also down year-over-year for a 10th consecutive month.

Furthermore, the fact that we also see fewer new listings coming on the market indicates Cha...

Myers Park Charlotte Real Estate Market Report NOV 2022Daily, we are asked, "So, how's the real estate market doing in Charlotte?"Quite often, we are asked specifically about our well-known, popular historic communities, including Myers Park.   Myers Park is one of Charlotte's communities that continuously stands the test of time when it comes to housing appreciation. Even as the city endured the days, weeks, months, years of The Great Recession, Myers Park was one of the neighborhoods that didn't feel the depth of depreciation/devaluation that many of the Charlotte neighborhoods experienced.  In 2022, the Myers Park real estate market is in demand to both relocation buyers and to those moving within the area. Below is the current market snapshot of the Myers Park neighborhood.  Year-to...
