Creekshire Estates Market Report DEC 2022 (Steele Creek) Creekshire Estates residents are enjoying the fabulous community as we are in the final days of the fall season.

Picture this: After years of hard work, you've finally saved enough for a new home. You're excited and more than ready to look for one, but you're unsure where to begin. Should you settle for driving around and looking for properties with “For Sale” cardboards to choose from? When buying a Southpark Charlotte, NC home, employing the professional help of a real estate agent is a great way to save valuable time and effort. Through this, you are getting the best guidance before you jump on a decision. DIYs or ‘do-it-yourself’ might be the hype nowadays. Yet, it's not the best choice for your house hunting. Homeownership is a serious commitment. You are spending hard-earned money, so you want to do everything right.Browsing the web can be an excellent start, but doing proper research will t...

HOW MUCH HAS YOUR GREATER CHARLOTTE HOME'S VALUE INCREASED IN 2022? Throughout much of 2022 the Greater Charlotte Region continued to suffer from a persistent lack of inventory. The lack of inventory was further exacerbated by the region's continued population growth at a pace greater than the national average, baby boomers who continue to live in their homes, and less new construction inventory.  Demand for homes outweighing the supply of homes has been the story of the Charlotte region's housing market in 2020, 2021, and into 2022 resulting in price appreciation that is leading many areas of the nation in annual gains. The Charlotte region continues to rank high on the hottest housing market lists. And that also means that Charlotte region homeowners have more equity in their homes th...

SOLD in Beverly Woods (SouthPark) Charlotte, NC - Positively adorable BRICK RANCH in great cul-de-sac location - arguably the best lot in Beverly Woods! This lovely one-level home is situated on a level, private lot and was recently updated. The kitchen (renovated in 2019) includes white cabinets, stone counters, subway tile backsplash & stainless gas range. Eat-in kitchen opens to the den which leads to the wonderful sunroom, overlooking a fabulously private backyard. The dining room easily seats 8.What is SO cool about this house is that I sold it to an ActiveRain member and now he's moving out-of-state! 😢 Steve Shatsky is a retired Realtor® from the Dallas area and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him to find this lovely home, as well as selling it a few years later.

Speechless Sundays - Late Fall Colorful Sunset Despite the cooler evenings (and heaven forbid, darkness at 4:30 PM), we are enjoying the brilliant sunsets every chance we get. The fire keeps us warm and the peacefulness of the lake, along with the quiet of the night, all create an ambiance we both enjoy so much. We share our 'art-in-the-sky' with our friends every chance we get as well! It's the most relaxing, majestic experience - what a way to cap off a busy day at work too. A special note - the reflection in the water shows the silhouette of the trees and the pink clouds' reflection. It was a spectacular sunset last evening!  I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy a sunset or two this week. You'll understand what I mean about the majestic experience! © Debe Maxwell, CRS | The Maxwe...

Steele Creek (Charlotte, 28278) Market Report NOV 2022How is the real estate market in Steele Creek? It's a bit chilly this November, as we find ourselves solidly in the late fall housing market in Steele Creek.  We continue in a sellers' market with a 1.4 month supply of homes. Inventory remains low and sellers are still commanding a solid sales price, just not an outrageous, over-the-top price - even if it takes a little longer on the market. Year-over-year, sales prices in Steele Creek neighborhoods have still risen, on an average of 20%. Here's the market snapshot for Steele Creek (Current data - past 30 days): Average Sales Price in Steele Creek's 28278: Average Days on the Market in Zip Code 28278: List to Sales Price Ratio in Steele Creek (28278): Months Supply of Inventory on th...

Saturday's Shots - Incredible Foliage in Charlotte 2022I mentioned to George Souto that I often thought of him when I awaken to a gorgeous fall foliage show. I don't always capture shots of our view but, on occasion, I remember my camera when I head out for my morning walk.Sheri Sperry - MCNE® wrote a post of gratitude about fall in Sedona which also reminded me to share our spectacular foliage this year!This was not taken this week but, we are still seeing brilliant reds this week which, North Carolinians will tell you, historically means we are in for a cold winter - one cold enough to kill, not only bacteria & viruses but, annoying pests in and around our homes. Those neusances, in our area of late, include stink bugs, beatles, red ants, household ants and more. Charlotteans are hope...

The economy continues to recover, as our Providence Springs market improvements continue to show.  If you're a buyer, interested in a fabulous, neighborly community on the NORTH side of Highway 51 in a great school zone, visit www.ProvidenceSpringsInfo.com for more information on this popular Charlotte luxury community.  We know that you won't be disappointed!Here are the current real estate market stats for Providence Sprin...
