If you've been planning on buying a home this spring, getting pre-approved for a mortgage is the first and most important step.

Is The Charlotte Region A Home Buyer's Market Or A Home Seller's Market?
 
 
 
With just 2.1 months of housing inventory overall as of October 2019, Charlotte could well be considered a "true" home seller's market. However, the answer to that question is not as straightforward as it would seem based on that low overall average of 2.1 months. The Charlotte region is actually a seller's market, a buyer's market, and even a neutral market. It depends on the price range of a home whether it's a home buyer's or home seller's market in Charlotte.
