Charlotte’s Real Estate Market

AUG 11, 2016

Charlotte’s housing market is hot. Buyers have gotten into bidding wars with each other. Some have resorted to writing love letters to sellers in an effort to convince owners to sell to them. Construction cranes dot the landscape and because home inventory is low, prices are up.
