Raleigh Housing Market Trends 2020

Revisn short-term apartments takes a look at current trends in Raleigh to see how this challenging year has changed the ever-strong and vibrant housing market.


Zillow reports that Raleigh’s current median single-family and condominium price is $297,861. The median listing price of $339,900 coupled with this sale price proves there is room for negotiation in the market. Over the past year, these home values have increased by 5% and are predicted to continue rising by 4.8% in the next year. Raleigh ranks a 6 out of 10 in home affordability according to business forecast publisher Kiplinger, meaning that while the city is one of the more expensive places to own a home in the US, it is a perfect market for the middle class and upwardly mobile. This is held steady by the largely millennial and Baby Boomer-aged workforce.

With a population density similar to Atlanta or Austin, the Raleigh housing marketing is one of the best in the country, and considered one of the best three real estate prospects of 2020. While prices are suspected to continuously rise each year, it may be a good time now to buy a home in Raleigh. You can expect to see your property appreciate for a long time while you enjoy your new home and lifestyle in the City of Oaks. With a healthy 11.8% of home listings seeing a price adjustment last year, it may be a good time to invest in a new residence.

How COVID-19 Has Affected the Market

Surprisingly, Raleigh homes are still hot despite the COVID-19 pandemic, a trend that is currently seen nationwide. According to Zillow, homes are selling at nearly twice the projected rate for this year across the country. In June, homes were swept off the market in just one week after listing—two times faster than June 2019, and four times faster than the end of 2019. A decrease in supply saw a 15% slide from March to June in homes available for sale. With an upcoming affordable housing bond set to be voted on, and with the market still booming as of August, Revisn recommends that now is the right time to buy a home in Raleigh despite the issues COVID-19 has created.
