July is coming to a close! We are seeing the end of the summer real estate market approaching, with a new school year starting soon and the fall season just around the corner.

The Hard Facts
- The current median sold price for a home is up 7.3% from this time last year, with a jump from $247K to $265K

- A home’s average days on market is up by 1.1% from this time last month, staying constant at 45 days
What Does This Mean For You?
Sellers, median sold prices are up! Limited inventory coupled with high buyer demand means the market is hot! In addition, the average profit margins for homeowners who sold in the second quarter have increased by nearly 34%. This is an increase from 31% in the first quarter, according to ATTOM Data Solutions. Home owners wanting to sell, this is great news for you in terms of equity and owner accumulation! There’s time left to sell before school starts back, so make the move and start the season fresh in your new home.
Buyers, supply is down across the Carolinas for several reasons. Charlotte is going through many changes such as new construction challenges, regulatory measures, cost of materials, as well as land costs, zoning, and government fees. With homeowners staying put for longer periods of time, not to mention the influx of new residents searching for places to live, this is the time for buyers to wait to purchase their dream home until the fall real estate market is here. The autumn transition is coming soon, so get ready!
