Latest news on the Greater Charlotte Region's real estate market in September 2021.

What you need to know and what it means for you... 


September 2021 saw the continuation of the strong housing market in the greater Charlotte region. Buyer demand continues to exceed pre-pandemic levels and to strain inventory.


Historically low interest rates and pent-up demand continue to fuel much of the buyer demand, as do the years of steady population growth in the Greater Charlotte area. While closed sales were down 2.3% in September, this is typical of this time of year as families settle back into fall school routines. But also, no doubt, with more available inventory, sales could well have been higher.


With recently ranking Charlotte third in the top 10 Metros for 2021, the Greater Charlotte market will most likely remain strong through the remainder of this year to due to razor-thin inventory and the high number of buyers in the market.


Housing inventory remained at critically low levels with new listings not keeping up with demand. With just 0.8 of a month of supply of homes, we continue to see some of the lowest levels of inventory on record in the Charlotte region. With inventory 37% lower than in September 2020, it's clear that demand has continued to increase relative to supply. This presents a unique opportunity for sellers who are ready to list, as new listings receive high visibility, spend less time on market and sell at premium prices.


Averaging 16 days on market, homes continued to sell nearly as fast as they were listed.  Days on market until sale were down 46.7% year-over-year. Multiple offers on homes are remain a factor in the Charlotte region real estate market. Both median and average home sale prices were up by double digits across the region year-over-year. The low levels of inventory will continue to impact home prices in the coming months. Moving forward in the the fall selling season, lack of adequate inventory to satisfy buyer demand is what could hold the market back in terms of sales momentum.

Nina, only 16 days, thinking that is about what we have.  But, then again, we do mirror each other, except prices.

Joan Cox hi Joan... when I think about two weeks on market, less than one month in inventory, month after month, I can only shake my head and wonder how much longer this goes on.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila... that's why I have very serious conversations with my sellers before we list about their contingency plans for the next home if/when we sell quickly.

NC must have a very progressive policy to draw business it's way Nina Hollander, Broker . It seems like I see something in the news every week about a large company moving it's headquarters to your area.

16 days on the market is still crazy low.  Y'all sound like you are as desperate for listings in your area as we are.  We are though seeing a slight uptick in listing in the last few weeks which is a good thing for buyers for sure.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Norma J. Elkins hi Norma... we have neighborhoods where the average days on market are five days or less. I keep kidding that we need to measure hours on market, not days. New listings are so small they have an infinitesimal impact on the market as a whole.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... the "real" state of our market is what it's been for quite a while now... little inventory, low days on market, increasing prices.

Grant Schneider hi Grant... I've really focused on listings this past year... much easier to sell than a buyer. Two more listings to come this year and then maybe I can take a breather come December.
