New Listings

The latest data for the Charlotte area reveals intriguing insights into the dynamics of new home listings over the past few years. In June 2022, the number of new listings for single-family homes, condominiums, and townhouses was 51,096. This figure dropped significantly to 40,802 by June 2023, indicating a substantial decline in inventory.

However, the market appears to be showing signs of recovery. By June 2024, the number of new listings increased slightly to 41,387. While this figure is still below the levels seen in 2022, the uptick from 2023 suggests that the market may be stabilizing and heading towards a more balanced state.

Pending Sales

The pending sales data for single-family homes, condominiums, and townhouses in the Charlotte area provides valuable insights into the market’s trajectory over recent years. In June 2021, pending sales reached 48,560, reflecting a robust period for the housing market. However, by June 2022, this figure had declined to 45,379, indicating a slowing trend.

The decline continued into June 2023, with pending sales dropping to 34,727. This significant decrease highlights the challenges the market faced, including potential issues with affordability and inventory shortages. Despite these challenges, there are signs of stabilization. While June 2024 pending sales were still decreased at 32,806, this number is higher than we have seen for the previous three months, suggesting that the market may be finding its footing and beginning to stabilize.

Sales Price

The median sales price for single-family homes, condominiums, and townhouses in the Charlotte area has shown a consistent upward trend over the past three years. In June 2022, the median sales price was $368,333. By June 2023, this figure had increased to $393,045, reflecting a notable rise in property values. The upward trajectory continued into June 2024, with the median sales price reaching $399,900.

This steady increase in median sales prices indicates a strong demand for housing in the Charlotte area, likely driven by factors such as economic growth, population influx, and limited housing supply. The trend suggests a favorable environment for sellers, as property values continue to appreciate. Buyers, on the other hand, may face higher costs and should consider acting sooner rather than later to avoid further price increases.

Days on Market

The median days on market for single-family homes, condominiums, and townhouses in the Charlotte area showed significant changes from 2021 to 2024. In January 2021, the median was 7 days, dropping to 4 days by June 2021, and remaining at this low level throughout most of 2022, reflecting a highly competitive market.

However, from late 2022 into 2023, the median days on market began to rise, reaching 10 days by June 2023 and peaking at 12 days in the fall of 2023. In 2024, the median stabilized at around 11 days from January to June, indicating a shift from the competitive conditions of the previous years to a slower market where properties take longer to sell.

The data for June 2024 paints a nuanced picture of the Charlotte area’s real estate landscape. While median home sale prices continue to appreciate, reaching $399,900, there’s a decrease in both new listings and pending sales compared to previous years. New listings were 41,387, slightly up from 40,802 in June 2023 but well below 51,096 in June 2022. Pending sales dropped to 32,806, down from 34,727 in June 2023 and 45,379 in June 2022. Additionally, properties are taking longer to sell, with median days on market rising to 11 from 10 in June 2023 and 4 in June 2022. These trends underscore the importance of staying attuned to market fluctuations and adapting strategies accordingly in the evolving Charlotte MSA real estate market.
