Inventory and Sales - that's the topic for today's posting on Homes for Sale in Chapel Hill and Homes for Sale in Durham. What better way than to start with some statistics.

Compared to this time last year ( July & August  2013 ) our market has HALF- that's right, half the number of homes for sale. July of 2013 we had inventory levels of  14,394 homes for sale in Durham, Chapel Hill,CarrboroRaleigh, Cary and surrounding areas that make up our local MLS. This summer July & August post 7964. Why would this be happening?

Pending contract and sales last year were in double digits- many homes sold! That's a great thing for you if were thinking of selling your house. 

Here is a home we have for sale right now that offers great natural lighting and a beautiful  home-site convenient to both Duke Hospital, Chapel Hill and Downtown Hillsborough!

Or if a home IN Chapel Hill is what you want, check out this amazing executive home in Lake Hogan Farms!

What about inventory?  This year we have a modest 1 % increase in pending AND SOLD homes. The market is very stable and our inventory is up 4 % this year ( mainly due to the 23% increase in new construction home starts ). Resale inventory does remain low- intact it's down 1 % this year from last. So, if you are really starting to think about buying a new home locally or moving out of state and need a Realtor Referral - This is also a good time to be selling your house!

Why is now good? Many reasons; but one important one is appreciation. While we have always had a more conservative rate of appreciation compared to the rest of the country- that has been what really saved this market during the worst part of the real estate bubble. Historically our average appreciation for the Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh-Cary markets has been about 3%. Currently we are at about 4-6% appreciation and local appraisers are comfortable with this range since its close to average.

Listen to how Stacey Anfidsen our MLS local appraiser explains the July Real Estate market.

If  this news peaks your curiosity about what's for sale in the market, here are some examples of homes for sale. Having looked at that, you can tailor your own search and see what is available locally to consider when buying your next home.

It also boasts a large master bath that features a double vanity with cultured marble top, deep-soaking garden tub that will take your troubles away, walk-in shower, tumbled tile floor, and a picture window overlooking the back yard.

In spite of the fact that summer vacations had a slight impact on home sales for the month of June and sales held to similar numbers from the previous month, pending contracts are up from June of 2013 to June of this year by 7%! Our weather-delayed year has helped keep sales moving longer than anticipated and we seem to still be about a month behind.

The number of SOLD homes- those that buyers closed on- is up 2.4% this year. This is mostly attributed to job growth which showed a 2% increase as well.

In looking at where the increase is mainly reflected we see more new construction home starts and that is the bulk of the 4% of the total growth in inventory this past month. Re-sale inventory is still very limited and having more homes for sale in Chapel Hill or more homes for sale in Durham would REALLY help the market be more vibrant. There are so many homebuyers looking for a home to buy- they're just waiting for the perfect one and then... it gets snatched up! 

What does that mean if you're a homeowner and thinking about selling your home in Durham or if you have a home to sell in Chapel Hill? Well, we are seeing a decrease in days on the market. Our last recording was 78 and now we are down to 67 days! That means homes are selling faster! We have even seen some competition when more than one buyer finds a super house for sale!

This means some great news for the local real estate market!

Overall, the average sales price for re-sale properties has risen 3%. Now, we all know pricing your home is key to selling- as is preparing your home for sale so it shows in its best light. The local market- and even more so your own neighborhood- make a HUGE difference in just how much increase in sales price occurs. We are what's called a hyper-local market...each neighborhood carries its own set of values, so if a conversation with me about property value and preparing your home for sale would be useful, we can meet and discuss a "hyper-specific" guideline for helping you sell your house in Chapel Hill or Durham.

If you are looking for that perfect home to buy in Chapel Hill, look no further! We have some great choices for you to consider.
