Matthews, NC (28105 Zip Code) Housing Market Update: March 2021

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

Latest news on the Matthews (28105 zip code) real estate market in March and what it means for you...  


Matthews housing market continues to see extremely low inventory with the months supply of inventory razor-thin at 0.5 months (down 72.2% year-over-year from 1.8 months year-over-year). Inventory of homes was down 69.1% year-over-year. New home listings decreased 25.9% year-over-year. Matthews homes sold in under three weeks, on average.


Average sale prices of homes increased 18.4% year-over-year to $387,863. Median home sale prices increased 11.8% to $312,000 year-over-year. On a month-over-month basis, the average sale price of a home sold in Matthews increased by $20,000. The median sale price increased almost $30,000.  Price per square foot increased 10.8% year-over-year to $164/square foot (up $16/square foot).


Average days on market were 17, down 9 days from the same time period one year ago. Days on market were also down 8 days from the prior month.  Median days on market decreased 4 days to 3 days versus one year ago. Matthews homes sold almost as quickly as they came on the market in March 2021.


Closed sales increased 16.7% year-over-year.  Pending sales increased a scant 4.4% year-over-year. No doubt, the small increase in pending sales was due to lack of inventory and not due to a lack of buyer demand.


With a median selling price of 102.3% of asking price (up 3.4% over March 2020), buyers should expect minimal to no room to negotiate.

Joan Cox Matthews is a very popular town, Joan, and still relatively affordable... so demand really outpaces supply.

I almost missed commenting on your post.  We both slept in for a change and then went out for breakfast/brunch.  Nice report on Matthew, and like others have said 9 days is something.  A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... what I wouldn't give to sleep in. Between the pain in my knees and my hip I haven't slept decently for over 8 months. And it will be a few months before I manage to find time in my schedule for my hip replacement... so no sleeping in for a while longer.

Ed Silva good morning, Ed... despite all the headlines that homes are selling fast, for top dollar, with multiple offers I still have people asking how much they can offer below the asking price.
