Charlotte, NC Housing News--MORE Good News!

Our favorite writer, Allen Norwood, brought to our attention today in theCharlotte Observer, that our housing market continues to show steady growth.  Check out Zillow's Quarterly Report and the National Association of Homebuilders and Wells Fargo Housing Opportunity Index.  The HOI shows that the national index is 42 and Charlotte is out-performing with a 59.5 Housing Opportunity Index. 

I know that Zillow isn't a Realtor's favorite site but, positive news is positive news--especially in the public's eyes!

Not too concerned with Charlotte Real Estate, but I have learned something nonetheless.  How long have you been using the HOI and how has it helped in your business?

Looks like good news is coming back.  It will be awhile, but it is a good start.

Hi Bill,

I'm sure that living in NH you're not too concerned with our market here--but, I absolutely LOVE Charlotte and am an eternal optimist and just love to tell the world that our market is doing just fine!!  Sorry to bore you with more statistics on the Charlotte market!

I don't use it to 'market' in general but, the Observer posts the results each quarter and I go out to the HBA site to check out more local information.  It's just more data to keep me informed--that's all!

Thanks for the post!

Debe, you didnt bore me.  Actually I put a lot of statistical info into my Blog so it is interesting to see how others are relresenting their market and what tools they use.  Thanks again for a new tool and keep that optimism going.  Optimism may not sell newspapers but it sure can do a lot for Real Estate.

Debe:

It was great to read you post. The market here in Gloucester Mass is doing rather well. The media here loves to beat real estate (and realtors) up. It is a hobby. They forget the years of runaway appreciation and focus on this "rough patch."  

How does the media do in Charlotte regarding real estate matters?

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your feedback!  If it's negative/doom & gloom, then it's in our papers too!  You're right, it IS a hobby for them and I truly believe that they think that negative/bad news is what sells their paper.  It is unfortunate for us because the general public tends to focus on what the papers say and we're constantly 'putting out their fires!'  One of these days, they'll come to their senses--I hope it's in my lifetime!

Hello Debe,
I continue to hear how Charlotte's market is fairing so well.  Can't believe the newspaper actually reported good news.  What a concept!

Cynthia, I share your media sentiments!  I did hear a read a survey from Harvard released recently that asked who (out of a list of about 15) you trust the most--the media was the least trusted entity!  Imagine that!  Thanks for the comment.

On some of the TV media the other day Charlotte was ranked the 5th fastest growing area in the country. Hopefully for you, that is true.

Don- That is true and we're doing just fine (thankfully) here in Charlotte!  We continue to sprawl as we bring more Fortune 500 companies to the area.  Charlotte is a great place to live!

Don:  I hope your great December carries into and through 2008!  I had a great December as well and was just a bit skeptical after all of the negative publicity.  The Buyers that I have are not really affected by the sub-prime issues so, that bodes well for the Charlotte market!  Happy New Year!
