What Happened In Charlotte Area's Waxhaw Housing Market In Jan 2018?

Waxhaw, North Carolina


January 2018 home sales in the Waxhaw area of the Charlotte, North Carolina  metro area (the 28173 zip code--encompassing the three towns of Waxhaw, Marvin and Weddington)--began the new year on a strong note with closed and pending sales up, and days on market down. New construction sales remain a driving force in the Waxhaw area market.


The average sale price of Waxhaw area homes remained flat in January 2018 at just under $439,000 versus January 2017. 


Average days on market for property listings dropped by 3 days to 64 days, a 4.5% improvement over the same period last year. 


Average price per square foot increased by 0.8% to $128/square foot during January 2018 versus January 2017.


Closed sales in Waxhaw/Weddington/Marvin areas increased 6.1% in January 2018 as compared with January 2017.  Closed sales of new construction increased by 6.3% versus a 6.1% increase in resale homes in January 2018 compared with January 2017. Pending sales were up 8.9% versus January 2017 compared with resale homes at 6.4%. Clearly, new construction remains very much a driving force in Waxhaw area home sales.


The average percent of original list price that sellers received for their homes was 96.2%, showing relatively little negotiating room for Waxhaw area homes for a third year in a row. 


The Waxhaw area's months supply of homes was down 3.8% to 5 months with new listings up 4.4% versus January 2017. Factoring out new construction, the month's supply of homes is only 3.6 months, up 2.9% versus January 2017.


Average sale prices for new construction were just under $483,000 in January 2018. The average sale price of a new construction home was about $37,978 higher than that of a resale home in January 2018.  Average price of a resale home was up 3.1% in January 2018 as compared with one year ago.... a testament to the shortage of resale homes for sale. By the same token, with more inventory available, in general, home prices remained flat in January 2018.

Seems like Waxhaw has a strong market to me, of course I believe the market is always strong, people's perceptions seem to influence things way too much.
