As for the average sale price of properties, we notice a congruent trend with the listing prices, showing an overall increase. It’s worth noting the slight dip from December 2023 to February 2024, hinting at possible seasonal influences. The recovery that followed in March 2024, leading to an average sale price of $403,580, validates the market’s rebound and suggests investor confidence.

There was a drop in house sales volumes between July 2023 to January 2024, which likely corresponds to the typical seasonal slowdown during the cooler months. The subsequent uplift by April 2024, with 1,826 properties on the market and 6,095 properties sold, demonstrates the cyclical nature of the real estate market and a return to vigorous activity as spring emerges.

Comparative Insights with Nearby Cities

Comparing Charlotte’s real estate landscape against nearby towns and cities such as Matthews, Pineville, and Harrisburg, the contrasts in values become evident:

  • Charlotte’s average sale price per square foot stands at $244
  • Matthews steals the show with its higher average property value of $625,000 but a slightly lower price per square foot of $240, possibly because of larger property sizes or the inclusion of higher-end properties in its real estate mix
  • Pineville and Harrisburg feature lower average values and prices per square foot, at $434,750 and $464,500, and $217 and $206.5, respectively. This variance may stem from different local economic factors, community features, and buyer preferences.
