The Raleigh Rob Report

Triangle Market Report For First Quarter Of 2023

By Robert Campbell | Assoc. Broker

The real estate market in Raleigh, North Carolina continues to thrive. The city has experienced significant growth over the past several years, attracting businesses, young professionals, and families alike.  As we embark into the second quarter of 2023 and the “Spring Market”, we are noticing that the overall market in the greater Raleigh area continues to stay healthy. Inventory remains low and compared to the fourth quarter of 2022 the number of total homes sold was 1,406 homes which was 24% less. Home prices remain steady with slightly increasing by 2.5% compared to the previous quarter.  There has been a bump in days on market increasing to 34 Days compared to 21 Days on average from last quarter.

Despite the market slowing down you would think this market will shift to a buyer’s market. Not so fast…Buyers are still out there, but taking their time and when the right property comes along (recently renovated) they will move on it, and in some cases making multiple offers, even though rates hoover above the 6% mark. My consensus is that the remaining buyers, including the move up and/or empty nesters (critical for inventory), are waiting for rates to drop below the 6% before they make the move to list their homes and find that replacement.

Raleigh is the home to many tech companies, healthcare providers, and other industries that are thriving. As we move into the spring, we should continue to see an influx of young professionals and families relocating here from other parts of the US, who are seeking a high quality of life, great schools, and job opportunities.

The luxury market ($1 Million – $2 Million) is leveling off with an average day(s) on market inching up to 26 days an increase of +117% YoY, with a Avg. Price Per Sq Foot at $341 up +7.6% YoY, and Avg. Sales Price of $1,349,400 up +0.5% YoY plus new listings hitting the market in Q1 at 132 up +7.3% also month(s) supply increasing to 3.4 double than it was year ago,  tells me more luxury homes coming to market giving buyers more options while prices remain consistent.
