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.

After an incredible string of months of very strong home sales in Lake Norman, November’s early numbers indicate we are finally experiencing the typical seasonal holiday slowdown. That said, we are still logging sales at a higher rate than prior Novembers. We currently have 208 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 262 and Septembers 282.  Here are our 2-week Hot Sheet numbers:

Lake Norman Real Estate Trends in Our Crescent Communities Say a LOT!

Entrance to The Point Luxury Waterfront Community on Lake Norman
For years, one of the best ways I have found to track Lake Norman’s real estate trends is to compare the largest of the waterfront Crescent Communities that were developed on all sides and corners of Lake Norman.  While our market has evolved, comparing home sales activity in The Point, The Harbour at The Pointe and The Farms in Mooresville, The Peninsula in Cornelius, Sailview in Denver, Northview Harbour in Sherrills Ford and Falls Cove in Troutman/Statesville provides valuable insight into these 5 Lake Norman towns and how each is recovering from or changing since the recession.

Lake Norman in the Fall? See for yourself!

As my husband and I were driving home from a lazy Sunday brunch at Sun Up Cafe yesterday, it seemed like the fall colors with the angle of the afternoon sun and blue skies were just too pretty to ignore. I spent the next several hours driving around the Brawley School Road neighborhoods in Mooresville capturing some of the beauty with my camera.  Who said you have to go to  the mountains to see colorful trees?  Enjoy!

Lake Norman’s October Home Sales 2nd Highest in 2014!

I must admit that our Lake Norman October closed home sales were so high that I keep re-doing the search in the MLS thinking there must be an error. Seriously, a 52% increase over October 2013, a 13.7% increase over last month AND the second highest month in all of 2014? I predicted October would be a great month because of the high number of homes under contract last month but even I didn’t expect them to be this high! Let’s take a closer look:
