The real estate market in Charlotte, NC, continues it's slow but steady emergence from the housing market decline. Remember, the impact of the national real estate market decline didn't really hit Charlotte, NC until the fall of 2008, so we were behind on the decline, and we are a little behind on the rise.
What does this mean for you? There has never been a better time to buy a home in Charlotte, NC, than RIGHT NOW. With interest rates below 5% for qualified buyers, tax incentives for first-time home buyers and now certain re-sale buyers, and a vast inventory of well-priced homes, if you are thinking about buying a home in 2010, NOW is the time. Don't wait for interest rates to rise, as many economists predict when the overall economy starts to improve. Don't wait for home prices to hit rock bottom - they MAY already be there! Don't wait for the tax credit incentives to expire - you MUST be UNDER CONTRACT by April 30, 2010, and you MUST CLOSE by June 30, 2010.
