Single Family Homes in Area 13 (Lake Norman)

“Average prices of home sales are down from last December 2007”

Total Listings: 1,5o1

New Listings in December: 175

Average List Price of New Listings: $697,686

Under Contract: 47 

Average List Price of Under Contract Listings: $385,834

Sold Homes:  56

Average List Price of Sold Listings: $424,339

Average Sale Price to List Price Percentage: 92.78%

Average Days On Market:  163

Price Changes:  259

Analysis:  4 months average time on market for homes selling in the upper 300s. 92% is roughly 3 percent off from our 95-96% sale price to list price in December 2007. Shows that we are definitely in a “Buyer’s Market” since lower offers are being accepted. 

We only had 1/4th of the homes sell that were listed just in December alone. 

Here is a snapshot of last December 2007 to compare:

New Listings: 169

Average List Price: $563,543

Under Contract: 71

Avg List Price Under Contract: $464,176

Sold: 71

Avg List Price Sold: $471,063

SP/LP%: 95.31

Average Days on Market: 143
