4 Top Reasons To Sell Your Charlotte Area Home This Fall And Not Wait

4 Top Reasons To Sell Your Charlotte Area Home This Fall

 

Fall 2019 officially arrives in just a few days. Here are 4 top reasons why it makes sense to sell your Charlotte area home this fall and not wait until spring.

  1. Strong Buyer Demand: buyer demand continues to outpace the supply of homes available for sale, especially for affordable homes. In the Charlotte region, as of end of August, we had only 2.3 months supply of homes for sale (down 17.9% compared with August 2018) and a decrease in overall inventory of 17.5% compared with one year ago. For homes priced under $300,000 in the Charlotte region, the months supply of homes is even lower at under two months. It's clearly still a seller's market in the Charlotte area and it only makes sense to take advantage of current buyer interest.


  2. There Is Less Competition: with inventory so low, you'd be competing with fewer homes for sale, which also generates higher sale prices.

    Additionally, as home values continue to appreciate and as homeowners increase their equity, the pent-up desire of home owners to sell, which was stalled for a number of years, will increase competition and provide home buyers more choices. It only makes sense to take advantage of less competition in the current environment.


  3. There Might Not Be A Better Time To Move Up: if you're thinking of moving up into a premium or luxury home, now is the time. Compared with "affordable" home inventory, there is an abundance of inventory in Charlotte for higher priced and luxury homes. For homes priced from $500,000 to $1 million, the Charlotte region's MLS has 14 months of inventory, up from 7 months in August. For homes priced above $1 million, we are looking at 60 months of inventory as of September 2019, up from 12 months just one month ago. With interest rates decreasing, it only makes sense to lock in your costs by selling your home now and purchasing your move-up home now. And with this s much inventory of homes priced above $500,000, you're more likely to negotiate a lower purchase price,





  4. It's Time To Move On With Your Life: there is something to be said for not putting your life on hold to wait out the "perfect" time to sell. It's virtually impossible to time housing and financial markets to that extent. Waiting also leaves you waiting to see what happens in the future... we can't predict the future. It only makes sense to make a decision to sell at a time when you have all the facts in hand.

Good afternoon Nina Hollander - this is a perfect situation for moving up.  Low inventory and high demand for what you are selling and more negotiation room for what you want to buy.

Michael Jacobs hi Michael... I'm always coming across people who think they can perfectly time the market and thus sit and wait for that perfect moment to sell.

Nina Hollander #4 is classic! Go get a new home people! LOL

Not to mention, prices just may start coming down. Always a great deal in the fall, regardless. Have a great day!

We are seeing the same kind of statistics, higher priced homes with plenty of inventory, affordable homes big demand and low inventory.

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 hi Nick.... that doesn't surprise me. What had my eyes bugging out of my head was how much the higher priced home inventory increased since last month.

CA COASTAL ESTATES Lauren Selinsky Perez CRS hi Lauren... with lack of inventory, I don't see home prices dropping on homes priced under $350,000. But it's a whole other story for homes over $500,000.

Nina the Fall Market tends to be a strong market around here, so like you said it is a great time for sellers to put their homes on the market.

Many people believe that fall isn't a good time to sell their home because fewer homes are on the market. You've made a compelling argument to the contrary.

Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl good morning, Wayne and Jean Marie... fewer homes means less competition... less competition for a solid buyer market means higher prices. And as I often tell people, buyers in fall and winter are often also more motivated to buy.

Joan Cox hi Joan... who knows what will happen by springtime? Someone seriously interested in selling should do so now and not take chances that the market might turn against them in six or seven months.
