Raleigh Real Estate Facts – 2013 Year End Recap

Raleigh Real Estate Recap 2013Our favorite Raleigh real estate market recap of the year – presenting the recap for 2013 Raleigh real estate!

Raleigh real estate is what we know and love, 2013 was much improved over previous years for real estate around the country and Raleigh, North Carolina continued to experience reliable stability and steady growth.

The pie chart shows the breakdown of:

  • new active listings (homes that went on the market)
  • total active listingsRaleigh 2013a Real Estate Recap
  • closed listings
  • homes that have gone under contract

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

The “1% Active” represents only those Raleigh homes that entered the MLS before January 2013, and sat on the market through the duration of the year (a high % would be alarming).

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