Providence Plantation Neighborhood - Real Estate Market Report for 2013

Providence Plantation Neighborhood Real Estate Market Report for 2012 (published in January 2013)

As we close out 2012, I am pleased to share my Providence Plantation Real Estate Market Report for 2012 andProvidence Plantation Real Estate Market Report 2013 provide a review of the neighborhood for the past 10 years.  Providence Plantation, one of South Charlotte's most sought-after neighborhoods has rebounded from the real estate market crisis that impacted neighborhoods nationwide.  My own anecdotal data from listing and selling homes in Providence Plantation this year reinforces my belief that homebuyers continue to seek the convenient and popular lifestyle available in the neighborhood.  I had two listings this summer that went under contract in less than two weeks, and I had the highest sale in Providence Plantation in 4 years!

Providence Plantation Market Facts for 2012

  • The average sales price in Providence Plantation for 2012 was roughly $422,000, down .8% from 2011.  If not for the last 2 months of the year (the typical slow real estate months) I think 2012 would have recorded a gain from 2011.

Forecast for Providence Plantation in 2013

I'm very excited about the real estate market for Providence Plantation in 2013.  As of this writing in January of 2013, our inventory of homes for sale in the neighborhood is at an all-time low, at just 26 homes for sale.   Once more homes are listed for sale in Providence Plantation during the hot spring real estate market, I anticipate that both the number of sales AND sales prices will go up.  With an improving economy, and historically low mortgage interest rates that greatly increase a buyer's purchasing power, more buyers can afford to live in Providence Plantation.  Since the neighborhood enjoys some of the best public schools in Charlotte, a convenient location, an active swim and tennis club, and a thriving social scene and lifestyle (activities and clubs that bring the community together), I predict a ROBUST real estate market in Providence Plantation in 2013!

Hi Melissa, awesome post about the Providence Plantation neighborhood in Charlotte, NC! .8% difference between the average sold price of 2011 and 2012? It hardly qualifies as a drop.. it's a sign that the market has stabilized.

Congratulations on having the highest sale in the neighborhood in 2012. I would like to read these news again in a year from now :-)

Hi Andrea!  Thanks for taking a look at and commenting on my market report for Providence Plantation.  I was actually surprised that there was even a < 1% price drop from 2011, because I really saw prices rising steadily towards the fall.  We had a few really low sales that were distressed, that skewed the results.  I'm sure that my report next year will have a sales price increase!
