Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
The Real Estate Marketing Insider named this week’s “Toby’s Choice” award for the middle-income market with the most promise for home buyers and sellers. This week’s winner was the metro area surrounding Charlotte, N.C., following news in the Charlotte Business Journal that the city enjoyed a prominent spike in its housing market in January.
Charlotte is one of the nation’s most populous cities and an important center for United States finance companies. In January 2013, the Charlotte area, which includes the metropolis and the ten-county area surrounding it, reported 2,163 closings, a whopping 40-percent spike from the same time last year. While home prices have stayed somewhat stagnant, sales are continuously growing. January represents the 12th straight month of growth in sales numbers. Pending sales have risen over 62 percent from January 2012. Industry experts in and around the Charlotte area expect that the growth will continue through the remainder of 2013.
The city of Charlotte has an obvious appeal. Residents of the metropolis enjoy a vibrant urban, cultural, and financial landscape. Nearby is the famed “Research Triangle,” which includes some of the country’s best research universities. North Carolina also boasts a vibrant arts community and major sports franchises in hockey and basketball. The lifestyle of a Charlotte resident sells itself, and the area needs very little real estate branding to attract attention from prospective buyers. Especially given the inspiring growth in sales, there is no reason for agents not to carry a few Charlotte listings in their portfolios. REMI recommends all realtors take a close look at this week’s “Toby’s Choice” market.
