A Closer Look at Recent Activity in the Wake County Area

Here’s an overview of the recent report from CoreLogic:

  • Home prices (which included distressed sales) increased 4 percent in the Raleigh market during the month of October compared to last year.
  • Meanwhile, prices in the Durham-Chapel Hill area declined 0.9 percent.
  • The Durham-Chapel Hill area has seen prices decreased for 4 consecutive months.
  • Home prices increased 6.1 percent nationwide in October, which is the 32nd straight month that home prices have increased.

What Does This Mean for Home Sellers?

For home sellers, the recent news in Raleigh is great because it means that they have a chance to get a great price for their property for sale.

If those home sellers live in Chapel Hill or Durham, however, then it’s incentive to work with an experienced real estate expert who can effectively market your home to maximize the profit potential on your home.
