Indian Trail (28079 Zip Code) Housing Market Update/Video: April 2018

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty 179530


April 2018 home sales in the Indian Trail, North Carolina area (28079 zip code), which also includes the Towns of Stallings, Hemby, and Lake Park in Union County, continued the trends we saw throughout 2017 and the first quarter of 2018 with sale prices increasing, days on market decreasing, available inventory and new listings decreasing, causing a decrease in both pending and closed sales.





The average sale price of Indian Trail area homes increased by 4.3% to just over $259,000 as compared with the same period one year ago. 


Average days on market for property listings dropped by 9 days to 35 days from 44 days just one year ago--a 20.5% improvement over the same period last year. Median days on market also dropped by 33.3% to 10 days in April 2018. 


Average price per square foot increased by 6.6% to $113/square foot in April 2018 versus the same period in 2017. Pending sales increased slightly by 0.5% in April versus the same month last year, while April closed sales  decreased by 11.4%. This is the fourth month in a row with closed sales down by double digits. No doubt the lack of inventory, which was only 2.3 months, contributed to the lackluster pending and closed sales in April 2018.


During April 2018, the number of showings until pending contract per listing averaged 16 showings (down 11.1% versus April 2017) and the number of showings per listing averaged 7.7 showings.  Given the reduced number of available homes for sale, it's not surprising that homes for sale receive less "foot traffic" prior to going under contract, as homes are selling so much more quickly.


The median percent of original list price that sellers received for their homes was  98.5%, showing minimal negotiating room for Indian Trail/Stallings area homes.


New listings decreased 1.4% versus April 2017 adding additional strain to a high demand market hungry for more inventory. Indian Trail area's months supply of homes stood at 2.3 months (down 8.0% versus April 2017). Overall, housing inventory was down 10.2% in April 2018 compared with the same month one year ago.


It continues to be very much a seller's market in the 28079 zip code and a very competitive environment for home buyers in the Indian Trail area. And this would not appear poised for change as we enter the height of our spring selling season.

Debbie Reynolds ~ thanks, Debbie... the market here is indeed moving quickly and too many buyers don't take that to heart until they've lost a home they love.
