The decline in the real estate market has finally caught up with Charlotte, NC because so many Floridians are moving to Charlotte. Unfortunately, they have homes to sell in Florida and are making contingent offers. I have posted my home on several trading sites-taking it to the streets so to speak-and thought I would send out general inquiries.
If you have a Southeast Florida home and are planning a move to Charlotte, let's try to get something going.
Best wishes to all trying to sell. Hope this market changes soon. There were lots of speculators, but it has affected every seller.

Hi.
I am also in Charlotte.
Yes, Floridians are flocking here.
We have been showing an upper tier luxury home here and many of
the buyers are from FL or CA.

You're right. I have had people interested in trading with me, but not a lot of people at that price range or they are in the wrong part of the state for me. I need to be in Southeast Florida.

Do you think your home is as overvalued as the majority in SE FL? It is a part of FL (actually, all of South FL) that is very overvalued; upwards to 50% to 60%. Your home in Charlotte may be at a lower price point than what some in SE FL can afford to swap with.

On a side note, what a great idea! Hope you have some luck with it!

Thanks. Yes, South Florida is still very overvalued. So many sellers unwilling to reduce prices even though the market is moving so slowly. Charlotte is doing ok. Eventually, I guess everything trickles down-including the real estate slowdown.
I hope the trade works too.. Thanks again!
