Charlotte NC Real Estate - Charlotte Home Buyers Deal with Short Supply

SOLD in Providence Springs by Debe MaxwellYou don’t have to listen too intently to hear the echo that many South Charlotte home buyers are hearing these days!  South Charlotte inventory is down, down, down!  We have had an influx of new businesses coming to the area, therefore, relocation clients are feverishly searching for that perfect home in their favorite neighborhoods. 

We are welcoming employees from companies such as

•  Jabian Consulting (100 new job positions available)
•  Huber + Suhner (50 new jobs)
•  Rotech Healthcare (200 new jobs)
•  Octapharma Plasma (undisclosed number of positions)
•  XPO Logistics (approximately 200 new positions)
•  MetLife (1,300 new positions)

With only 536 homes actively on the market (in every price range) in the South Charlotte zip codes of 28226, 28270 & 28277), there just aren’t enough to go around for JUST these new companies.  There are also many buyers who wish to relocate before the second half of the school year begins in January.  There are many first time home buyers out now, searching for their perfect home to buy before the first of the year.  There are also many buyers who have sold their Charlotte homes to relocate to the South Charlotte area, unable to find housing.

We haven’t seen this ‘boom’ since 2006 - 2007 and are a bit caught off guard as we had an abundance of inventory just 18 short months ago!  Homes are moving quickly if they’re price right, in excellent condition and in great neighborhoods. 

At this point in the year, many homeowners have no desire to list their home, believing that spring market is the best time to list.  I can tell you right now, if you have a home in a desirable neighborhood, in great condition and price it right...AND are ready to move, we can sell your home!

If you’re thinking of selling your home in the spring, so is everyone else!  Why not get a jump on the market and get your home listed and sold NOW?  We have Charlotte home buyers desperately seeking a new home!

Debe, you really have low inventory in Charlotte!    Nice to have an influx of companies relocating their corporate offices, but sure hope you see more listings soon!

Hannah, yes and we are nothing short of thrilled - until we begin a mad search for a buyer who needs to purchase a home immediately!  :-)

Fred, This too shall pass!  It did for us - and it will for you as well!

Joan, Charlotte economy is looking up and we are consistently bringing new business to the area.  We knew we were bound to hit this point again - and are very thankful for it!  :-)

Rich & Beth, it will!  You guys weren't far behind us when we fell!

Gabe, thank you so much!  Yes, looking desperately for listings for our buyers - in fact, I don't even always see them going on the market - just let my buyers take a look!

Debe - That is a great situation for sellers in the area... not so much the buyers & buyers agents.  This shows that employment growth is critical to a growing / appreciating housing market.  Hopefully, you have this "problem" of new jobs for a long time.

Michelle, it's been a bit crazy here!  Sellers are loving life, buyers, well, not until they've WON in a bidding war!

AJ, Thanks and I do agree.  We are very fortunate so, it's difficult to call it a 'problem' too!

Carla, You're absolutely right!  Renters are in position to pounce on that next perfect home that hits the market!
