MINT HILL, NC – The 2021 Mint Hill Real Estate Market can only be described as amazing. Low-interest rates, astounding demand, and low supply have surpassed all expectations we had at the beginning of the year. The slowdown we experienced after Covid-19 started surging in early 2020, did not last long. Usually, the spring and summer months are the best times of year to sell your home. In 2021 all months were strong. Sellers have experienced again record sales prices. Multiple offers were the norm. Buyers guaranteeing a certain amount of money over and above the appraisal in case it fell short was a common occurrence and a new benchmark. Sometimes thousands of dollars in due diligence fee set apart buyers that were not afraid to put skin in the game to increase their chances of getting an offer accepted. Just like in 2020, in 2021 ‘getting a deal’ meant getting your offer accepted!

How is this possible during the ongoing Covid19 crisis? Charlotte has been noted to be the 5th hottest real estate market in the country right now; more people are moving into the area than are leaving. Demand is very high due to low-interest rates and people’s desire to move to the suburbs; inventory is down by close to 50% in some areas. Being a seller is this market can have a big positive impact on your seller’s net, however as a buyer, be prepared to pay top dollar!
What will 2022 look like for sellers?
How quickly your home will sell is indirectly correlated to the absorption rate, condition of your home, overall location, surrounding area, features, demand, and supply. Experts do not expect demand to decrease much or at all, barring any unforeseen economic developments. Increases in the value of 11%+ are expected. No matter what the conditions are, your asking price needs to be reflective of all those different puzzle pieces. Then, with great exposure and the guidance of a qualified real estate professional, your home will sell in a reasonable amount of time for top dollar!
What will 2022 look like for buyers?
Buyers are expected to continue to face stiff competition. The best strategy is to be fully pre-approved, do not have any contingencies (e.g. a house to sell before you can buy), be prepared to bring a competitive offer and due diligence fee, pay our own closing costs and bring a ‘clean’ offer. The projected pricing increase will, unfortunately, outprice some homebuyers. This might level out the competition to a degree but with such an imbalance of supply and demand, buyers are still likely to face strong competition.
