September Market Report

The numbers are out once again from the Canopy Realtor Association. They show the trend once again of low inventory, prices inching up higher, and homes selling quickly. When you look at the entire Charlotte Region, you see that despite more homes being listed than at the same time last year, that inventory has hit a historical low of just a 1.1 month supply. That means that just barely over 5,000 homes are on the market down from just under 10,500 last year.

When you look just at the Lake Wylie area, you see that inventory is down to just a 1.3 month supply, this means that 181 homes are on the market versus 430 last September. This typically means that the seller will have the upper hand in negotiations as there is limited supply so they can command a premium when they do sell.

Average Sales Prices are up 5.5% year over year to $440,675. Sellers are receiving on average 99.4% of list price when they sell. This means that most homes are selling at or above list price so buyers can’t expect any discounts right now.

Homes are selling quickly as well. Last year the average home went from listing to the closing table in 106 days, this year they are selling 10 days quicker at 96 days. This shows that there is high demand for the few homes that are listed right now.

New Listings and Pending Sales are both up, but they aren’t able to overcome the low inventory. The pandemic has exacerbated the already low inventory we have been tracking for the last few years. It remains to be seen if the market will recover quickly or slowly once there is a vaccine.

Neighborhood Spotlight: The Landing

Right on the shores of Lake Wylie, you’ll find a serene neighborhood called The Landing. This great community is close to Charlotte, but has lower South Carolina taxes, and is in the top rated Clover school district. This should be enough to entice most people, but then you add on great amenities, community events, and wonderful homes and it’s no wonder these homes don’t last long on the market.

The homes in The Landing are estate style homes with large lots of at least a half acre and plenty of space. Many of the homes have over 3,000 square feet of living space and some have over 6,000 square feet. These homes were built in the early 2000’s and have open floorplans, home offices, and waterfront homes have docks and boathouses.

In addition to these amazing homes, there are great amenities in The Landing. There are 25 boat slips for residents without direct water access. There is also a neighborhood park, clubhouse, and pool. There are around 2 miles of paved walking trails and sidewalks encouraging residents to take advantage of the outdoors. There is a competitive swim team for the kids, and many community events throughout the year.

There are currently 7 homes on the market in The Landing representing 5.6 months of inventory, but of the seven four are already under contract. Typically having 5.6 months of inventory represents a balanced market between buyers and sellers, but with the broader trend of low inventory in the region, sellers may still have the upper hand in negotiations.

In the last year, homes sold for between $365,000 and $1,060,000. This shows the difference between a small interior home and a large waterfront home.

Large Homes In Demand

Many markets across the United States are showing an interesting trend during the time of Covid-19. People are buying larger homes. There had been a trend for a while where people were downsizing and looking at tiny homes. It seemed like such a good idea to have a smaller footprint, and value experiences over things. That time has passed.

With many people now working from home and helping children with virtual school, many families are feeling the pinch of small spaces. Garages are being taken over by learning pods, and finding a quiet corner to take a business call can be a challenge. We are being asked to multitask on a level never seen before. This is where having a larger space can come in really handy.

Many buyers are looking for homes that have separate offices for two adults, as well as a space suitable for virtual school. Outdoor living spaces such as playscapes, pools, or space for lawn games or trampolines are also big selling points.

The place your home is located is not as big of an issue right now either. With work being conducted remotely for most office jobs, your home just has to be connected to speedy internet. This has allowed many people to contemplate moving to a great natural area such as Lake Wylie. The benefits of this are myriad. Not only do you get the fresh air and natural beauty, but you also get to be part of the lake lifestyle now and once this crisis is over.

New Development on the Horizon

A new development is in the works on Lake Wylie and Little Allison Creek. The proposed project is being put together by Fielding Homes which is a local builder working in the Fort Mill and Lake Wylie areas. Their previous projects include Mason’s Bend and Paddler’s Cove just to name a few.

The new project is called Lakeside Glen and the plans show that it will be a 425-lot single-family residential project. The site sits on 305.7 acres located between Highway 274 and Allison Creek Road.

This project has been in the works for some time, with a preliminary plat originally filed in March of 2015. There have been changes and revisions since the original filing, the most notable has been increasing of minimum lot size.

There are not many more details available at this time so we still don’t know the size or price range of the homes yet. The York County Planning Commission will continue to work with Fielding Homes as this project comes to fruition.
