One Minute National Housing Market Video Update From RE/MAX: Jan 2018

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty 179530

 

One minute national housing market video update from RE/MAX for January 2018 using December 2017 housing data based on 54 metro areas around the country.

 

  • Home sales down 3.3% versus December 2016
  • Median price of homes sold up 8.1% year-over-year to $232,500
  • Average days on market were down by 5 days to 57 days as compared with one year ago
  • Number of homes for sale down 14.6% 



 

No doubt that home buyer demand remains strong and that in many areas it's a seller's market, pure and simple. There just are not enough sellers listing their homes, despite rising prices. But keep in mind that real estate is very local, if not hyper-local... so be sure to have a discussion about your specific market conditions with your real estate professional.

 

So, is now the right time to sell your Charlotte metro area home? That depends on your motivation. If you'd like to have a quick conversation about that, please contact Carolinas Realty Partners with RE/MAX Executive. We'd be delighted to explore the pros and cons of listing your home now versus waiting.

Smart length for the videos. Is Remax providing these, or do you produce them Nina? Would love to see some branding with your name attached. Even a photo of you, as I  know you won't appear on-camera. :)

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD ~ hi Debb... the RE/MAX National Housing Video is produced by RE/MAX. The others, I produce. I'm still thinking of posting a photo, but mostly I just push my Great Homes In Charlotte site. We'll see... the quick local market reports are posted to my website as a blog and they have my picture there, as well.

Honestly, if they're working for you and getting views and calls - maybe just leave it alone. Why fix it if it isn't broken, right?
