Relocation tips: Take the big stress out of a big move

Relocation tips: Take the big stress out of a big move | Charlotte Real Estate | Scoop.it
Today's tight housing market and a rebound in relocations make moving to your dream home a bumpy ride. The right strategies and tools, however, can smooth the way.
Debe Maxwell www.iCharlotteRealEstate.com's insight:

"With unemployment falling from 10% in 2009 to 7.4% today, and with fewer homeowners carrying underwater mortgages -- 850,000 homes exited negative equity in the first quarter of 2013 -- people are more willing and able to pick up stakes.

 

The Census Bureau says nearly 5.1 million people moved to a new state last year -- up 17% from 2010 and the highest level since 2006. And as real estate has recovered, demand has outstripped existing supply: Only 5.2 months' worth of homes were on sale in June, down from 9.4 in 2010."

The average home in Charlotte now sells for $192,800, compared with an average sales price of just $156,600 in 2012."

Dilworth Charlotte NC - Why Now May Indeed, Be THE Best Time to List Your Dilworth Home - Real Estate Market in Dilworth Charlotte NC
Debe Maxwell www.iCharlotteRealEstate.com's insight:

The Dilworth real estate market has gone from a 29.7 month supply in January, 2010 to what is currently now, a 3.6 month inventory.  Note:  In November, 2005, we were at our lowest supply of inventory in Dilworth at 3.9 months; today, we’re below that level at 3.6 months!  What that means for Dilworth homeowners, is that we ARE experiencing a strong Sellers’ market in our community.  A home supply of less than 6 months is considered a Sellers’ market so, 3.6 months of inventory indicates our Sellers’ market since 2005.
