How did the 1st Quarter of 2012 compare with 2011? – A Tie!! Closings for the first quarter are traditionally the slowest of the year. In 2011, ten homes closed. In 2012, Ditto!
2nd Quarter Looking Good! 15 resale homes are currently under contract (as of 4/7/12). WOW! The best start ever for resale homes! Availability of resale homes is currently very low (approx. 50% of normal resale inventory)! This is also the time when seasonal sales pick up in other parts of the country. That translates into buyers for Sun City Carolina Lakes. This may be a good time to put your home on the market!!!!
New Construction! Pulte continues to do well selling more than one home every other day (average 15-20 per month). Very nice lots have been opened up in POD P (Manor). You may have seen the land cleared across from the golf pro shop (approx. 22 Summits). They are also developing the land at the end of Raven Crest for approximately 85 River homes. Pulte, as always is very competitive. However, the resale market is always a desirable option for many buyers. We are excited with what we have seen the last few weeks!
RE/MAX—It Makes a Difference!
When we put our business plan in place to create a resale market in Sun City Carolina Lakes, we knew that we had to create a powerful business model to be competitive with new construction. I left my previous company in 2004. That’s when we joined RE/MAX Executive, the # 1 RE/MAX Company in North and South Carolina! On an average, RE/MAX agents outsell the competition 3 to 1. RE/MAX earned the
J.D. Power Award for Real Estate in 2011! RE/MAX spends tens of thousands of $$ each month on internet marketing. (That’s more than most small companies gross in a year). RE/MAX works with all the large companies and their relocation programs when relocating their operations to the Charlotte/Fort Mill area. (Hundreds of buyers a year). There is a difference!
Current Resale Inventory! The current inventory is the lowest it has been in years! Cumberlands, Morningsides and most Summit models are almost sold out! If you are thinking of listing—give us a call—we may already have a buyer lined up!
Is this the time to list? We are excited about the “Buzz” taking place in our office the last few weeks! We have been busy!! If you are considering selling, it may be a great time to put your home on the market! Give us a call, and we will do a market analysis of your home. Feel free to visit us at our Real Estate Store if you have any questions! We are located next to Harris Teeter.
