Charlotte Region's Luxury Home Inventory Down To 1.2 Months: Dec. 2021

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

Latest news on Charlotte Region's luxury housing market as of December 2021 and what it means for you...  


Charlotte Region's single family luxury homes real estate market remained solid in spite of a 36.7% year-over-year decline in inventory. This low level of inventory has not been seen in well over a decade. Days on market, both average and median, also were down significantly year-over-year, as was the months supply of inventory.


Luxury home sellers continued to see a higher sale price as a percent of listing price. Median home sale prices were down slightly at 3.4%, while average sales prices increased 0.4% year-over-year.


Earlier in the year there was concern that luxury home buyers might "give in" to buyer fatigue and take a "wait and see" position due to frustrations caused by multiple offers, declines in inventory, and the lack of inventory. Thus far this does not appear to be the case and the luxury market remains a seller's market. December's increase in closed and pending sales year-over-year can be attributed to the increase in new listings and continued demand for luxury homes.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... the luxury market is a very small segment of the Charlotte region's housing market and until this past year rarely found it hard to find inventory. Now I have a client interested in homes priced from $1.5 to $2.5 million and there is literally no inventory in the Waxhaw area.

Bob "RealMan" Timm hi Bob... since I spend a lot of time in my home and also work from home, what's inside my "four" walls is important to me. And when I was in the corporate world and travelled 50% of the time, it was important because I wanted to come home to a home I loved.

George Souto you said a mouthful, George! I'm working with several sets of buyers now prepared to spend $400K, $600K, $1.5+ million and can't find anything for them.

So again you have a very low level of inventory. This is a great market if you are a seller.

It's crazy to see reports that show that inventory is still dropping even though it has already been so low for a long time.

Hello Nina,  remember the old days of inventory levels were 4 to 5 months.  Will not see that for awhile!

Will Hamm hi Will... the days of 4-5 months of inventory are a distant memory for me here in Charlotte and I suspect that will remain a distant memory for a while still.
