2023 Charlotte Real Estate Recap

The holidays are upon us once again, and we’re coming to the end of another calendar year. This is the perfect time to pause and reflect on all that’s happened in the past several months. It’s been quite a year for the Charlotte real estate market, and we’d like to do a quick recap, highlighting some key metrics. Whether you’re brand new to the investment property business or you’ve been keeping a close eye on the market for years, it can be extremely valuable to compare trends year by year. Let’s dive into the details of 2023 as we look forward to 2024.

The Charlotte real estate landscape closed out 2022 as a seller’s market, and it has remained a seller’s market through the end of 2023. The demand for housing far exceeds the available properties, which allows sellers to get away with higher asking prices. During the month of October alone, 75% of homes sold were under contract in 30 days or less. These metrics make sense, considering Charlotte’s enormous growth. The Queen City was predicted to be the single hottest housing market in the country, and it’s lived up to its potential.

The median selling price for a home in Charlotte hovers just above $402,000, up almost $12,000 since January of this year. You could find a 1-bedroom home for around $265,000 in the current season, roughly a 10% increase from this time last year. But those that want or need larger homes are in luck. The 4-bedroom homes on the market have remained relatively stable, hovering around $490,000, and even larger 5-bedroom homes have decreased a whopping 6.8% to around $730,000.

Even given all the changes that have occurred this year, Charlotte remains one of the least expensive areas when compared with nearby towns. Charlotte’s median $402,000 is pretty decent considering the alternatives presented by Pineville, Huntersville, and Matthews, which range in price from $420,000 to almost $515,000. If you’re looking to get started with rental properties, or you simply want to add to your existing portfolio, you’d be hard-pressed to find better value than real estate in the Queen City.
