Lake Norman Real Estate’s November 2015 Market Report

For only the second month this year our Lake Norman home sales fell short of the same month in 2014.  While not nearly as dramatic a decline as last month’s, as of today our closed sales are 6% below last November’s. Lake Norman is not alone in our fourth quarter slowdown as nationally sales have been slipping as well. Also worth noting: our 4th quarter 2014 was unusually strong (see the annual sales chart below) which makes this year’s numbers look even worse. Unfortunately, based on our pending sales, it is very doubtful that we will match December 2014’s close sales. Our inventory of active listings is still insanely low (9% below last year’s) which is and will continue to drag down our sales. Want some good news?  Our year-to-date 2015 closed single family home sales are still 8.3% higher than 2014’s!  After 9 straight months of  beating the 2014 sales, October broke our winning streak but not enough to take away our annual sales increase.  Let’s take a closer look:

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 being beaten up in October, our Lake Norman real estate market appears to be regaining some of it’s momentum. Historically, November is not a dynamic month for our Lake Norman housing market.  Since 2005 only 3 November total closed home sales exceeded October’s. My numbers in our October market report showed a huge drop in closed sales for the month compared to 2014 but also some optimism in the new contracts opened in the Lake Norman area.
