June 2020

monthly indicators report

While much of the country was working on a phased reopening of the economy in June,
real estate activity continued to strengthen as well. Nationally, June showing activity as
tracked by ShowingTime was up notably from the COVID-19 depressed levels in recent
months but was also up from June 2019, reflecting pent-up demand by prospective
home buyers.

New Listings were down in the Charlotte region by 8.5 percent to 5,365. Pending Sales
increased 26.8 percent to 6,174. Inventory shrank 46.7 percent to 5,701.

Prices moved higher as Median Sales Price was up 7.5 percent to $284,900. Months
Supply of Homes for Sale was down 50.0 percent to 1.3., indicating that demand
increased relative to supply.

While buyer activity continues to be robust, seller activity continues to be a bit softer,
with fewer homes being listed for sale than a year ago. Many housing experts believe
sellers remain reluctant to list their homes due to continued concerns over COVID-19,
which was beginning to see a resurgence in June. Until sellers regain confidence,
housing inventory will continue to be constrained during what is expected to be an
active summer selling season.
