Myers Park Market Trending Upward?
categories: Myers Park
 

Myers Park is the clear winner over the last year for most home sales in the luxury market in 2009, beating out other South Charlotte luxury areas like SouthPark, Ballantyne and Weddington by 30% or more homes sold during the same period.  This is a bitter-sweet triumph for Myers Park homesellers: sweet because Myers Park is still an extremely desirable place to live, but bitter because home sales came in direct proportion to significant drops in home prices.   The chart below shows the decrease in inventory/homes for sale over the last 12 months in Myers Park.

The combination of lower home listing prices and interest rates remaining low over the last two years has resulted in a decrease of inventory or homes for sale because listings are being absorbed or purchased.  The chart below tracks the increase in Market Action, i.e. homes being purchased, as median home prices have fallen.  At 13 on the Market Action Index Myers Park is still strongly a Buyers Market.  (anything under 30 on the index)

Though still a Buyers Market in the region, Myers Park remains one of the most desirable communities to live in the country and current home prices make it a great time to buy or trade up in Myers Park.

The most needed Back Pack items are: 18oz. jars of peanut butter, the following canned items – tuna, chicken, fruit cocktail, ravioli, spaghetti-n-meatballs, pork-n-beans, peaches, vegetable soup.  Also breakfast bars, applesauce and pudding cup packs, boxes of macaroni and cheese, small plastic bottles of 100% juice and small boxes of cereal.
