Realtor.com named their top projected housing markets in 2021 this week. Charlotte Ranked #3 on their list behind only Sacramento and San Jose, CA.  Realtor.com estimated Charlotte would see a 13.8% increase in sales year-over-year and 5.2% increase in price growth year-over-year.  For the full article, click here.
 

For the week ending December 5:

  • New Listings increased 7.6% year-over-year to 929
  • Pending Sales increased 43.4% year-over-year to 975
  • Inventory decreased 49.8% year-over-year to 4,755
 
New Listings were up in the Charlotte region by 7.9 percent to 4,036. Pending Sales increased 26.4 percent to 4,509. Inventory shrank 52.4 percent to 4,554. Prices moved higher as Median Sales Price was up 13.7 percent to $290,000. Months Supply of Homes for Sale was down 54.5 percent to 1.0., indicating that demand increased relative to supply.

Showing activity remains higher than the same period a year ago across most of the country, suggesting that strong buyer demand is likely to continue into what is typically the slowest time of year. With inventory remaining constrained in most market segments, sellers continue to benefit from the tight market conditions.

Favorite Sandwich in Charlotte:
Michael’s Pick:
Le's 
Sandwiches
4520 North Tryon Street
Charlotte, NC 28213

Le's Sandwiches has been a favorite of Michael's for years.  This is his top stop for the best bahn mi in Charlotte. 

His order is simple:   A #6 grilled pork with double meat extra spicy.  Oh, and he often orders two of them.

Located in the Asian Corner Mall, if you haven't been there before Le's can be tough to find.  It is located inside the mall behind the International Supermarket.  Watch out for the pot holes outside, the parking lot is one of the worst in Charlotte.  It is totally worth it though for this amazing sandwich shop.
Frank’s Pick: 
NoDa Bodega

1200 E 36th Street

Frank's pick for the best sandwich in Charlotte is "The Bodega Cuban". 

This isn't a traditional Cuban sandwich, it is a jalapeno pale ale braised pork shoulder with ham, white American cheese, pickled red onions, and chipotle honey mustard sauce on a pressed baguette.  Unfortunately, this is NOT a regular item.  The NoDa Bodega only serves it as a special mostly on Tuesdays each week.

Frank also highly recommends a bag of their Zapp's VooDoo chips with the sandwich as well.
