Lake Norman Real Estate’s April 2016 Market Report: Interesting Trends Emerging!

So, the good news is that Lake Norman’s deplorable March closed sales does appear to have been a one-month aberration of what has otherwise been a pretty good year.  Last month I wrote “I am positive this dip is short lived because we currently have 297 homes under contract compared to last year’s 272. Clearly we are now on a terror! ” I think it is fair to say that still holds true and then some.  Let’s take a closer look:

How Noisy is a Lake Norman Neighborhood?

Sound map for home in Lake Norman

How would you like to search for homes and be able to also find out just how noisy it is in each location?  The company that provides the property search program for this website, Davis Farrell Technology, just added a really COOL new tool provided by a company called HowLoud.  Utilizing a Soundscore™, buyers can search and view properties based on environmental noise.  A Soundscore is a combination of 3 factors:  airports, traffic, and local sources.  Listings that are scored will display the score and a map like the one above.

To test this I did a search for homes in The Point in Mooresville.  Above is the result for a property just off Brawley School Rd.  As you can see, this property is rated 82 which is “calm” but getting close to being “active” given its proximity to Brawley School Rd.  As the main road in and out of the Brawley School Rd. peninsula, you can see that Brawley School Rd itself is yellow which indicates “Active”.  The farther away from Brawley School Rd you get the “Calmer” you get.  Note that the darkest areas are the lake itself.

How cool is this?  Have some fun, give it a try and let me know what you think!

Lake Norman Waterfront Lot's view of the lake

Download this month’s Lake Norman calendar here

The weather was amazing in April!  Lake Norman’s gorgeous shoreline is once again decorated with our myriad lush green trees, flowering Azaleas and plants of all kinds.  In many places the docks just peak out to let people know that, in fact, someone is lucky enough to live behind those trees on the lake.

I took this picture from the dock of a waterfront lot I just listed in The Point, arguably the most prestigious luxury community on Lake Norman.  Since our recovery after the recession, the last remaining lots in The Point and the greater Brawley School Rd. peninsula have been gobbled up and most already have gorgeous new homes on them.  Construction is everywhere.  There are 3 waterfront homes being built just down the street from me and 3 others are completed.  I must admit that it is sometimes hard to see our beautiful, wooded lots disappearing.

The lot in this photo is shoulder to shoulder with some amazing luxury waterfront estates!  Check it out: 134 Cape Cod Way.

Lake Norman Real Estate’s 1st Quarter 2016 Market Report by Price Range: Great tool!

If you are a home buyer or seller in the Lake Norman area it really only matters what is happening in YOUR price-range. Yes, it is important to know about the global economy, the national economy and the Charlotte area economy and real estate market but real estate is hyper-local so it is most meaningful to learn about the Lake Norman real estate market and within that, your specific niche. For instance, if you are looking to buy or sell in the $400,000 price range, you are going to have an entirely different experience than someone in the $500,000’s. This is the reason why I create a price-range analysis every quarter for my readers:

*Compiled from the Carolina Multiple Listing Service’s data, this chart enables you to focus on your specific price range(s) rather than use the broad-brush approach thus allowing you to size up your competition and better position yourself.  Please note that these numbers are actually from the 15th of January to to the 15th of April so they will differ slightly from my monthly market reports.
