The Charlotte region ranks second among large markets in projections for both home value growth and growth in owner-occupied households.
Home value growth in Charlotte is expected to be much slower this year, with slightly longer days on the market, and sellers receiving around 94% of their asking price, as compared to over 100% at this time last year. It is expected for affordability to stabilize in 2023, if not improve, making it easier for households to budget and plan for their housing decisions. For those able to buy now, less competition from other buyers means homes are staying on the market longer, many sellers are cutting their list price, and there is less chance of being caught in the bidding wars that were so prevalent over the last 2 years.
