Charlotte Home Prices Up Volume Up in April

June 11th, 2012 Listed Under: Real Estate

April 2012 Sales UP 12.8%, Home Prices up 2.2%

On this post, I compared April 2012 to April 2011, on data derived from the Carolina MLS.  We use a more confined area that represents just the greater Charlotte area, then compared the number of sales (Units Sold) and the average Sales Price /sf- or Sold Cost per SF.   I looked at the impact of foreclosures too.  The Price range on the left column are Sold Homes for the period.    More on

Case Shiller also reported home prices up in Charlotte in their March numbers- the tide has turned

Did you hear Warren Buffet say Buy Houses on CNBC in April? He did- historically low prices, and even lower interest rates make 2012 a great time to buy that first home, or the move up home.  He even says a 30 year fixed rate mortgage is a way of shorting the dollar!

    Hi Sibyl,

    Thanks for the comment! I haven’t heard anything about them specifically but most brokers will be able to help you out with a short sale. It’s a process that’s lender approved but many agents will still take on a short sale. Call up that Realtor, or any other reputable brokerage, and they should have someone to help you out. Have a good one and best of luck!
