Matthews Houses for Sale Report - 3Q 2017

If you've listened at all to the news, you know the Matthews houses for sale market is on fire!

I thought I'd take a quick look and share with you some of the information about how the real estate market truly is going.

I'm writing this at the end of September, so there may be a few more sales or listings that filter in over the next couple of days, but this will certainly give you a picture of how the Matthews market is going!

  • Houses for Sale: 156
  • Under Contract: 71
  • Sold: 724

Of course, everyone wants to know about pricing, so for the sold properties in 3rd quarter, the prices ranged from $1.6 million to $96,000

The general feeling is the market is back to where it was before the downturn, both in terms of sales and prices.

What's missing is the market having enough houses for sale!

So how does the current data fit in with the past few years?

Consider this:

As we can see from the above three graphs, Prices are up, closed sales are up, but the number of houses for sale continues to fall!

For those considering a move and selling a home, it's a great time to be on the market!

For buyers, there are still many great houses for sale in Matthews, but it takes work and partnering with a local professional to come up with a strategy to get you into a property you love!

Reach out, and let me know what I can do to be of service to you!
