Debe Maxwell with Savvy + Co. Real Estate agreed.
“I just showed a property to a client on Saturday and reminded them that Monday was the magic day if you are going to make an offer,” she said. “The client called on Monday and wanted to see the property again, and sure enough, the selling agent said they had two other offers. My client had to pay a little bit more but won the bid.”
“You really have to be a strategist as a Realtor these days because the inventory is so low and we’re seeing multiple offers everywhere,” Maxwell said. She sells primarily in Midwood-Plaza, Elizabeth, Dilworth, Myers Park, SouthPark and along the Providence Road and Carmel Road corridors.
She said MLS figures show that 16 homes have sold in Piper Glen in the past six months. In 2012, 37 homes sold in the upscale neighborhood at an average price of $651,486. That compares to 2011 when 26 homes sold at an average price of $541,610.
Maxwell said sales in older south Charlotte neighborhoods such as Beverly Woods, Beverly Crest, Madison Park and Olde Providence are also climbing. She said the average home price in Olde Providence has jumped to $390,000.
**I do have to clarify about the “Monday Magic” though! - Charlotte home buyers tend to view homes for sale during the weekend and then ‘sleep on it,’ waiting until Monday to submit Offers on the home of their dreams. Oftentimes, others are doing the same thing and with the limited supply of homes on the market, I recommend that you DO NOT WAIT! Put in your Offer early to avoid multiple-Offer situations and get a better price on the home. If you find yourself in a multiple-Offer situation, you will MOST likely pay more than the list price!
