Charlotte And Another North Carolina City Named Hottest Housing Market In The US For 2023
This is not the news I wanted to hear. With my apartment lease running out in a few months and rent increasing astronomically across Charlotte (along with the overall cost of living, but not my salary), I am looking to purchase a home this year. Zillow just released their list of the Hottest Housing Markets for 2023. And the Charlotte and another North Carolina housing market are right there in the top 5 for 2023. That’s right both Charlotte and Raleigh are still seeing exponential growth in home buying. Wonderful. At this rate maybe I can afford a shed? Zillow was that this is list includes the hot markets, where home values are expected to appreciate at a faster rate than the rest of the nation. The Top 10 are:
“Home buyers are attracted to markets in the Sun Belt that offer relative affordability, thriving economies, and year-round outdoor living,” said Zillow economist Alexandra Lee. “Across the board, sellers will remain in the driver’s seat, but especially so in the hottest markets. Buyers should be ready for strong competition for homes, which means bidding wars and homes flying off the market only days after they are listed.”
Well, if you need me I’ll be drowning my sorrows in a bottle of two-buck chuck. It’s good news overall for the cities of Charlotte and Raleigh and the state of North Carolina that the housing market is thriving in 2023. And if you are looking to sell, and don’t need to purchase you’re in luck. If you’re like me and looking to buy? Expect to continue to pay top dollar in the region.
