Lake Norman Real Estate’s January 2015 Hot Sheet Analysis is Here!

Lake Norman real estate Hot Sheet report

Want the very latest insight into our Lake Norman real estate market? So do I which is why, every month, I do a snapshot analysis of the middle two weeks of the month to get a sense of where we are at this very moment…an almost live insight into the heartbeat of the Lake Norman housing market.

While our January closed sales so far are stable with last year’s, there is no doubt in my mind that Lake Norman home buyers have hit the ground running in 2015!   We currently have 187 single family homes under contract (sellers have accepted an offer but the sale is not complete) in all of Lake Norman compared to last month’s 174, November’s  208, and October’s 262.  While January historically is our lowest month for closed sales, our momentum has picked up rather quickly this year which bodes well for February and March. Here are our 2-week Hot Sheet numbers:

Lake Norman Real Estate’s 4th Quarter 2014 Price Range Analysis is a Great Tool for Buyers and Sellers!

If you are a home buyer or seller in the Lake Norman 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:

Lake Norman’s 2014 Year-End Home Sales Were Up 7.9%!

2014 turned out to be a very positive year for our Lake Norman real estate market.  A 7.9% increase in the number of single family home sales over 2013 is a stronger showing than the national home sales. But what is really impressive is the fact that we actually exceeded all prior years back to and including 2007!

Here are some interesting charts that break down the data for you:

Lake Norman Real Estate’s December 2014 Sales Analysis: A Bang or a Whimper?

A bang.  A BIG bang. After a significant slowdown in November, our Lake Norman real estate market ended 2014 with an explanation point by posting a 20% increase in sales over December 2013 and 25% higher than last month’s. With 120 closed sales, December 2014 didn’t just cream last year’s but all prior Decembers’ since 2006 and might even meet that month’s sales once our few stragglers are posted to our MLS in the next few days. Unfortunately, this trend probably won’t continue into January 2015.  Let’s take a closer look:
