The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the game for the real estate market in recent months. The monthly numbers from the Canopy Realtor Association report on the Canopy Multiple Listing Service is out and we have the details.
If you look at the entire Charlotte Region, which includes 12 counties in North Carolina and 4 counties in South Carolina, you see that prices are up, homes are selling quickly and that there are fewer homes on the market.
When you look just at the Lake Wylie area, you see that prices are up, homes are selling quickly, and that there are fewer homes on the market. This is the same trend that is holding true.
In August of last year, there were 427 homes for sale in the Lake Wylie area. This year there are only 190, a decrease of 55.5%.
Homes are going under contract in an average of 45 days, 12 days quicker than last year. The average home is sold 100 days after it is listed, down 8 days from last year.
Prices are up as well, the average list price of a home in Lake Wylie is $456,073, up 9.1% from last August. Sales prices are also up, 5.4% to an average of $432,606.
There are 23.3% more pending sales this year than last year which means that we should have strong sales figures for next month as many of these sales close. There were also 25% more new listings this August showing that we should see many of those homes go under contract to keep the numbers strong for the next few months. Colder weather usually slows the market down, but we may see that happen later than usual since the spring bump was pushed to the summer.
