Latest news on the Greater Charlotte Region's real estate market in April 2022...What you need to know... What it means for you...  With median home prices reaching record highs in April 2022, we saw the continuation of the strong housing market in the 16 county greater Charlotte region. Buyer demand continued to exceed pre-pandemic levels straining inventory and sales momentum. Sales were down for a fourth consecutive month as was new listing activity in 2022. A fast-paced market, which it clearly is with homes seeing 16 average days on market, means buyers have less time to make decisions and negotiate, as multiple offers in high-demand areas cause homes to sell and close quickly. MARKET OVERVIEW FOR CHARLOTTE REGION: APRIL 2022 Pent-up demand from the days of the pandemic continued t...

 Do I REALLY NEED A Mortgage Pre-Approval To Make An Offer On A Home?A mortgage pre-approval is the first step in your journey to purchasing a home, giving you a competitive edge when you make an offer on a house. Being intentional and competitive are musts when buying a home.  That's why pre-approval is so important today.

That's creating some serious competition. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average home is getting 4.8 offers per sale. As a result, bidding wars are still common....
