Charlotte residential closings increased in April to 1773. While this number was down 26% from April 2008, April presented the fourth straight month of increase in closings. The average sales price of $201,532 was up approximately $20,000 over the lowest average posted in January of this year. 

Low interest rates, the first time home buyer credit and great inventory of excellent homes has fueled a surge of interest by buyers in the lower price points over the past six weeks. While activity at the lower price points, sales activity on homes valued over the convential loan limit ($417,000) still remain weak, people search for jumbo loan money. The good news for the higher price segment is some banks are now seeing an opportunity in jumbo loans and are starting to lend again. 

For any one looking to purchase a home in the future, I cannot stress enough how now might be one of the best opportunities in recent history. For additional statistics from the Charlotte Regional Realtors Association, got to http://carolinamls.epubxpress.com/link/rref/2009/jun/48?s=0
