We’re starting a new series each month where we’ll give you a quick overview of what happened in the Real Estate market here in Charlotte. 


Starting off with August 2020. By now you realize that we’ve been dealing with COVID for months. This means new showing protocols, extra hoops for lending, and keeping ourselves socially distant for things like inspections and closings. It’s been interesting to say the least. One thing that has pushed through it all? The Charlotte Real Estate market! Below are some statistics from the end of August, check out the average price difference from last year… with inventory as low as it is, NOW is the time to sell.
