Cary NC 2013 Real Estate Recap

The pie chart shows the breakdown of:

  • new active listings (homes that went on the market)
  • total active listings
  • closed listings
  • homes that have gone under contract

during the whole of 2013 for single family detached homes located within Cary, NC.

The “0% Active” is a tad confusing.  This percentage includes only those Cary homes that entered the MLS before January 2013, and sat on the market through the duration of the year (a high % would be alarming).  At 0% this is great for home sellers and buyers (considering resale) alike.

While the pie chart is a little arbitrary by itself, we include it to help paint the full picture for the stats below.
