So, although this might not be the best time for buying a house with such high interest rates, it’s interesting to see where the best spots in the North Carolina housing market might be. According to Realtor.com, a North Carolina zip code makes their list for the 50 “hottest zip codes in the nation” for housing. Apparently, South Charlotte zip code 28277 came in at number 42 on the list.
And, for those wondering, the 28277 zip code encompasses Ballantyne, Piper Glen, Raintree and Providence Crossing. Realtor.com points out their data looks at how long listings remain active as well as demand for the area and quick-selling homes among other determining market factors. And, they used information for a period from January to June of 2023 to arrive at the list of 50 hottest zip codes in the nation. So, what are the prices in this North Carolina housing market?
Well, they show the median listing price of homes in these zip codes as of June 2023. And, the North Carolina zip of 28277 had a median list price of $623,000. So, while that is definitely out of budget for a lot of us, the analysis found these hot zip codes tell a story. Today’s buyers in the hot areas tend to be older homebuyers. And, they value areas near big cities. Plus, buyers in these zips want more space. And, with the market so competitive, “well qualified” buyers drive sales.
Furthermore, two other spots in the Carolinas landed among the 50 hottest zip codes for housing in the nation. Charleston South Carolina’s 29414 came in at number 13, with a median list price of $559,000. And, Columbia, South Carolina is at number 14 with the 29212 zip code and a median list price of $340,000.
