In the March 12, 2020, edition of Triangle Business Journal, reporter David Purtell shared with readers a breakdown of Triangle-area housing market stats that honed in exclusively on the luxury category – a space where HREG Team Leader Renee Hillman is expertly positioned to support your buying and selling efforts.
2019 Triangle-Area Market Luxury Housing Listings
- Median List Price: $765,000
- Median Sale Price: $719,000
- Median Days on Market: 3
- Total Sold: 2,035
Curious about how the most luxurious of the luxe listings stand up in the market? The top list price in 2019 was a lofty $9.9 million while the top sale price of the same year came in just a touch lower at a more modest $4.53 million. 😉
Our Look at First Quarter 2020 Data
While the luxury report tells one perspective of the luxury story, we want to dig in a little deeper into what our local market saw during the first three months of this year. We took a look at Wake County and Durham county resale numbers, exclusively, because new construction homes have a “days on market” count of zero which skews the average days on market lower as a result.
In Wake County, luxury listings priced at $500,000 and above stayed on the market for an average of 63 days with an average price of $689,000. The sale price ratio? 98%, meaning that these homes ended up closing at a final price just two percent lower than the list price. These numbers represent 386 sales transactions in total with the highest selling at $1.835 million. (For comparison, new construction luxury netted 363 sales during the same first-quarter period with the highest sale price of $2.78 million.)
In Durham County, 44 sales occurred during the first quarter at $500,000+ with an average price of $704,000 and average days on the market of 53. The list to sell price ratio comes in at 99% with the highest sale price of $1.565 million. New construction luxury listings slightly outpaced resale in Durham County in total sales with 54 total sales and a 101% list to sale price ratio with the top-priced sale coming in at $1.34 million.
