The Spring market in Charlotte is officially under way and it is hotter than EVER. Truly, in my 16 years experience, I’ve never seen a market like this and hearing the same from agents who have been in the biz 20+ years. More buyers in Charlotte and fewer homes are driving the prices up, sometimes WAY up.
I just closed two homes in Dilworth last week. One that went under contract without even going on the market and the other closed for $45,000 over asking and at $485/squa
1) Know your price range/what your comfortable spending each month on a mortgage payment, and get a Pre-qualification letter from your lender BEFORE you start house-hunting. Shop around and try out both well-known banks and smaller banks/brokers you may not have heard of! Different lenders have different fees, interest rates, etc. 2) Get in ASAP when a house goes ACTIVE. I am seeing homes in the in-town areas going under contract in the first 24 hours and appointment times FU
