Lake Norman Real Estate’s September 2017 Hot Sheet is Here!

Lake Norman Hot Sheet Home Sales

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.

I always get excited to do this Hot Sheet analysis each month because it provides me with a mid-month pulse of our Lake Norman real estate market.  So where are we today?  After a stunning March, strong April and May, record-breaking June, strong July and August, it looks like this hot trend might continue through the rest of 2017. Let’s take a closer look:

Lake Norman Real Estate’s August 2017 Market Report

I usually introduce these market reports with basic numbers about the month.  But today, instead, I want to share with you what I feel are the biggest takeaways:

  • Lake Norman currently has 42 properties over $1 million under contract.
  • Waterfront homes are, for the first time since the recession, in a sellers’ market.
  • Our trade-up price ranges from $600,000-$999,999 represented almost 1/4 of our sales.
  • Finally, at 1329 closed sales, our first 8 months were the highest first 8 months in Lake Norman’s history, exceeding 2005’s by 6.6%.

In a nutshell, these mean that our waterfront, trade-up and luxury markets may finally be recovering after lagging for years, AND our overall strong sales are no longer erratic but instead impressively consistent in beating prior year’s numbers month after month.  While there is no guarantee that these will continue long term, they are still tremendous accomplishments for our Lake Norman real estate market.

Let’s take a closer look:

After June’s highest monthly home sales in Lake Norman’s history, we closed a respectable 180 single family homes in July but it was only the second best July since 2005. No new records set. :-).
