Current Dilworth Home Values

Has listening to the news left you feeling like there’s no hope for Charlotte’s real estate market? Well rest assured that every cloud has a silver lining and if you’re living in Charlotte’s Dilworth neighborhood your silver lining keeps getting brighter. Real estate trends and fluctuations in the housing market can’t always be applied to all areas of the country. Some states have seen gains in home values, some have seen declines in home values, some states have seen increases in population, some have seen decreases in population. The point is there is no calculable method that can be applied to all real estate markets. Every state, every city, every neighborhood, every house will be effected in a different way by real estate market trends.

North Carolina has continued to grow in the downturnand is forcasted to be one of the fastest-growing states in the country; that means more people needing homes in Charlotte which translates to your home being worth more. It’s a simple case of supply and demand.

Now let’s narrow the area down even further: Dilworth is one of Charlotte’s most sought-after neighborhoods and its small size means there is limited supply available to a growing number of potential buyers. If you have a home in Dilworth rest assured that the sky is not falling and you are in one of a few neighborhoods that are seeing increases in real estate values.
