So, why are selling prices rising and will it last? In short, inventory in Charlotte hasn’t been this low in over a decade which is great news for sellers…but will it last? In short, no. Now is the perfect time to take advantage of low inventory levels and capture the ready-to-buy market.

Another graph from showing last month’s inventory levels relative to years’ past highlights the falling inventory levels. There are currently 39% less homes on the market in Charlotte than just two years ago. That’s great news for sellers but these perfect statistics won’t last long as more people decide to sell.
