Raleigh NC Real Estate Market Update January 2014

The latest report from the Triangle MLS has just been released and includes info on the Raleigh NC Real Estate results from January 2014. The update focuses mainly on the shrinking inventory (number of homes for sale) in the Raleigh NC Real Estate Market. Inventory is down 9% year over year and is the lowest we have seen in the past 5 years. We typically see an increase in buyer activity over the next several months, so with less competition, now is a perfect time to put your home on the market. However, all data is pointing to a much slower increase in the number of offers and sold homes this year versus last year, so pricing your home properly is extremely important. Check out the video from Triangle MLS to hear more about what is happening in and around the Raleigh NC Real Estate Market.

NCDOT to step up 540 route reviews

Holly Springs and the surrounding towns to its east continue to wait to hear which route the final section of 540 will take. The final decision will impact homes, businesses and residents in many areas in and around Holly Springs. The original route designated the "orange" route would impact the fewest residents as it was thought by many builders and town planners to be the only route and they have for years stayed clear of developing on most of the property. A newsletter was just released from NCDOT about the 540 route alternatives. Bad news is that all the routes are still up for consideration...good news according to the NCDOT newsletter #4 is "Based on the feedback from citizens, local governments, and state and federal agencies, NCDOT is moving forward to complete the detailed study as quickly as possible, and will include all of the comments in any final decision making process."

Inside the Beltline January 2014

The Inside the Beltline Raleigh NC Real Estate market update for January 2014 iis sending mixed messages to buyers and sellers. The decrease in inventory is a clear win for "sellers" who have less homes to compete with and in certain neighborhoods they are able to increase the asking price as a result...however, the increase in days on market and the small decline in number of homes sold would in most cases put a "buyer" in the drivers seat, allowing them to offer less than asking price on homes that have been on the market for longer periods of time. So, what should you take away from the January 2014 Inside the Beltline Raleigh NC Real Estate market update? It's a great time to buy and sell! I know that sounds very cliche and what you would expect to hear from a Realtor, but honestly, with rates continuing to be decent, a slight slow down in the number of competing buyers and a clear reduction in inventory, this market seems to be a win-win for both buyers and sellers within the Raleigh NC Real Estate market.

Holly Springs Market update January 2014

Inventory is decreasing and the prices are slowly rising in select neighborhoods. These trend typically favor the "seller" and not the "buyer" in the real estate market. But with a decrease in the number of closed sales month over month and year over year, there are still plenty of great deals out there for first time buyers and for buyers who are looking to sell their home and move into something new. The Holly Springs Real Estate market, the Fuquay Varina Real Estate Market, the Cary NC Real Estate market, and the Apex Real Estate Market all are seeing an increase in new home construction and continue to fair well compared to other markets. Check out the the video below that has some great information about the January 2014 Holly Springs Real Estate Market.

I540 Final Section Research Back On

After a two year break,  the NC Dept of Transportation is once again researching which route the final sections of I540 should take. In Holly Springs the original "orange" route consists of mostly vacnt land in anticipation of the highway beign built. However, the orange route is not set in stone and the alternatives have neighborhoods and towns on high alert. The proposed "purple" route for example would end up costing several homowners in Sunset Oaks thier homes. Meetings have been set up on various dates so that NCDOT can answer questions.
