2021 is finally here!

A new year, especially this year, is a great time for new beginnings. 2021 is full of possibilities, including the opportunity to make a move. This might be the year you finally buy a new house or relocate to Charlotte. This may be the year you retire, sell your house, and move to the beach.

Are You Buying?

The housing market in Charlotte is still very tight this year. There is limited inventory available for sale, both in the city and in the surrounding communities. However, great homes come on the market every day. The best houses are snapped up quickly by serious buyers who are pre-qualified and ready to make a purchase. If you’re planning to buy a house in 2021, get pre-qualified early in the process so can make the best possible offer. In some situations, sellers see 3-5 offers for their home or more. A serious buyer who is well-qualified is most likely to win the house in that scenario.

Are You Selling?

If you are selling in 2021, your house still needs to be in top form to command a premium. Buyers are serious but still picky. A house that shows well and is ready to sell is more likely to receive multiple offers, while a house that needs fixes will sit on the market for several weeks. Buyers do not want to fix up their house while working and schooling from home. If you do the necessary work before your house goes on the market, you can command a premium for your house and sell it faster.
