Make no mistake about it– Charlotte is still very much a seller’s market. But, sales cooled a bit in the first half of 2019 compared to the same measure of time last year.
As reported by the Charlotte Business Journal, from January to June, homes in the Charlotte-metro averaged 47 days on the market before being placed under contract. This is up almost 7% from the first half of 2018, a measure equaling three more days. This metric of days on market, or DOM, refers to the number of days between a property’s most recent listing on an MLS and when it goes under contract for purchase.
The total number of days from listing to closing (accounting for time in escrow) went up from 94 to 96 days.
