2015 has been a strong year for Charlotte real estate. We may reach 2014 volume, but prices are up between 5-7% year over year depending on how you measure, and next year Realtor.com has projected Charlotte to be one of the 10 hottest real estate markets in the country.
Selling Your Home? We had a great year so far – you may know inventory is very low! If you are considering selling your home, know that we have the best selling environment in the last 5 years. The same reasons it is a great time to buy- very low interest rates, also make it a great time to sell, and buy another home. Inventory is low, prices are up. So now is the time to get your house on the market. “We’ll wait until spring” of course you can, but the first round of listing will begin by the end of January. Shouldn’t we talk before then?
This is a quick online look, but of course the best numbers will come with a personal visit.

My Charlotte Relocation Story
I came to Charlotte 19 years ago from Hoboken, New Jersey just outside New York City. I spent 3 years in Hoboken, commuting to NYC as a graduate student at Columbia. I grew up in the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC… I moved with my wife, 4 children and a dog to Charlotte to raise our family in the summer of 1993. Charlotte has been good to us. Our children attended both public and private schools in Charlotte. All are college graduates and live up and down the east coast.
Married more than 30 year to a teacher and now Professor of Education, I’ve been involved in education discussions for years, and will point you to the excellent resources you need to make the best choice for your children, public, charter, magnet or private. I understand the questions and concerns. The good news is that there are many good answers here, and good resources, but it will be up to you to find the best ones for your children. Currently, I’m working on a post on Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s new Superintendent, Heath Morrison.
The Agents of the McDonald Group helped put together this excellent Charlotte relocation guide.
