NC Foreclosures Up 41.5% from 2009

NC Foreclosures Up 41.5% from 2009

Foreclosures skyrocketed in North Carolina in 2010, up 41.5% from the prior year.  Though this is a huge increase, North Carolina is still in the bottom half of states in foreclosure rate with one in every 105 households facing foreclosure.  South Carolina was in the top half of the nation with one in 62 homes facing foreclosure, making it the 16th state with the highest foreclosure rates. 

Mecklenburg and Union Counties in North Carolina had the highest foreclosure rates in the state with one in 34 housing units in foreclosure.  Nationwide, the average is one home in every 45 homes being foreclosed on.

Thinking you are going to sell a home or buy a home in the Charlotte Region? Here’s the latest stats…

Thinking you are going to sell a home or buy a home in the Charlotte Region?  Here’s the latest stats…

December was an interesting month relative to the last few years.  Over the last couple of years, inventory has increased in December when comparing to November.  This December however, the inventory of homes to sell actually decreased.  This was primarily due to a substantial homes being sold in December in comparison to November.  In the last two years, the number of sold homes actually declined relative to the prior November, whereas this December followed the same trend as 2006 and 2007 where December sales outpaced November’s.  Hopefully this is a good sign of things to come in 2011!

For the full report, please check out the video…

Durham NC Listed as One of the Best Places to Buy A Home

Durham NC Listed as One of the Best Places to Buy A Home

Consumer finance website, WalletPop, listed Durham, North Carolina as one of the best places to buy a home in 2011.  Because there are plenty of activities for seniors and a median home price of $174,900, the website named Durham one of the best cities to retire in.  With Duke University’s medical center and its popular senior learning program, along with arts and outdoor activities nearby, Durham NC is a great place to buy a home.

Triangle Region Loses its Largest Public Company Headquarters

Triangle Region Loses its Largest Public Company Headquarters

In a $26 Billion all-stock transaction, Progress Energy has been acquired by Duke Energy.  The new company makes Duke Energy the nation’s largest utility and will remain headquartered in Charlotte, NC.  With the acquisition and move to Charlotte, the Triangle will lose its largest public company headquartered in the region.  Though layoffs are likely in the acquisition, sources say that the new company will “maintain substantial operations in Raleigh.”

Property Tax Values May Increase in Your Charlotte NC Neighborhood

Property Tax Values May Increase in Your Charlotte North Carolina Neighborhood

Properties are being reassessed for tax purposes for the first time since 2003.  Though properties have historically increased over time, there are some neighborhoods that have been hit hard by foreclosures or short sales; and those Charlotte neighborhoods have actually shown a decline in property value since 2003.  On the other hand, there are some neighborhoods, particularly those nearest to Uptown Charlotte where property values are still showing a significant increase, even after a drop in prices over the last couple of years.  The Charlotte neighborhoods of Wilmore, Wesley Heights, Dilworth, Scaleybark, Starmount, Beverly Woods, Mountainbrook, and Olde Providence are some of the neighborhoods with the largest property value increases over that time frame.
