Lake Norman Real Estate Market Reports

Lake Norman Real Estate’s April 2014 Hot Sheet Home Sales are up!

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 our Lake Norman real estate market is at this very moment…an almost live insight into the heartbeat of the Lake Norman housing market. These Hot Sheet reports serve as pretty good predictors of our short-term Lake Norman real estate market.

After an unusually cold winter, it seems life and home sales are definitely springing to life in Lake Norman. We currently have 264 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 211. While we are still behind last year’s closed sales numbers, we are now almost matching them with our new contracts!

Lake Norman Area Halloween Happenings 2011

My daughter and I had some fun with our pumpkins!

 

Lake Norman is a great place to celebrate Halloween.  From haunted houses to old-fashioned Main Street celebrations to costume parties and live entertainment at local night clubs there truly is something for everyone!

Every year at this time the Lake Norman area comes alive with pumpkin patches, Corn Mazes,  Halloween festivities for all ages and homes decorated to welcome all of our young trick -or -treaters.  Many of our subdivisions have their own neighborhood events but here are some more options:

If you are in search of a pumpkin patch:

  • Carrigan Farms: Hayrides to the pumpkin patch 9-4 Saturday and 12-4 Sundays through Halloween. Pick a pumpkin, visit the animals and have some fresh apple cider.
  • Patterson Farm: Pumpkin patch is open with tours through Nov. 6th and on weekends don’t miss Paw Paw Carl’s Playground where you can enjoy hayrides, a corn pit, Tomato Slingshot, Duck Races and more!  See their website link above for more details.

Or, just look to any of our many local produce stands like Josh’s Produce Market on Williamson Road in Mooresville who are brimming over with pumpkins and decorations for your Lake Norman home!

Of course, it would not be Halloween without some fun, and even spooky events for all ages and Lake Norman is full of options! Continue reading
