This is the 1st quarter market report for the Hickory NC and Catawba county real estate market. Before getting into the meat, so to speak, it's always important to know about the data. This report covers all of Catawba county and includes only single-family type homes (that is single family homes, condos and town-homes). No commercial, raw land, or any type of mobile or modular home type is included.
From January to March 2009, 496 homes were listed and 174 have sold. That's a tick over 35%, listed to sold. The average list price for the period was $164,550 with an average sold price of 156,260. That means that most are getting about 95% of the listed price. That's pretty normal. That average days on the market for those that sold were 152, or approximately 5 months. That too, is pretty good.
15 properties sold for $16,000 up to $50,000.
38 properties sold between $50,001 and $100,000
47 homes sold between $100,001 and $150,000
