Where Should I Live?
Choosing the right location will depend on your lifestyle and personal preferences. After buying and selling homes on Lake Norman for 25 plus years, we have some thoughts on what each side of the lake offers.
Southeast side of Lake Norman
If you are looking for amenities and a defined town center feel, you will generally prefer the southeast side of Lake Norman. it is only 20 to 30 minutes commute to Charlotte NC. And the towns in this area include Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson and Mooresville.
Southwest side of Lake Norman
If you want a more rural feel with larger lot sizes, lower taxes but still want to be close to Charlotte, the Charlotte Regional Airport and the Northlake Mall then Denver, NC is a good fit. Because of the new Highway 16 and I485, enjoy the direct shot to Charlotte, you can enjoy the quiet side of Lake Norman and still be minutes from shopping, dining and entertainment.
Northside of Lake Norman
Even more rural than the westside, the north side of the Lake consists of the towns of Sherrills Ford, Terrell and Troutman. That being said, the Village of Sherrills Ford is a mixed-use project consisting of 206 acres on the shoreline of Lake Norman that is currently under development. The Lake Norman State Park is a popular destination located on the north side. Furthermore, you can easily access the cities of Statesville and Hickory.
How Much Does it Cost to Live on Lake Norman?
When many people think of buying real estate on lake norman, they want to know how much it cost to purchase a Waterfront Home. While the cost of construction is about the same in all areas of Lake Norman, the waterfront lot cost varies from $150,000 to over $1,000,000. Whether the waterfront lot is in a small cove, large cove or the main channel is one of the two main determining factors. Furthermore, the vicinity to the shopping, employment, medical facilities, and large towns plays a key. Also, there are several options that provide you with the 'Lake Norman Lifestyle' without necessarily being right on the waterfront. For instance, there are many homes with a deeded boat slip or lake access facilities located inside the neighborhood. Read more Lake Norman Waterfront Homes for Sale
Buying a Lake Norman Home For Sale
If you are like most, you will start exploring homes online, checking out photos and seeing what's available in your specific price point. Most of the folks we help are from out of state and typically are about 18 months out from making a purchase. Of course, we have clients that buy a lot sooner and others that take longer. We have been helping clients just like you for over 26 years and we don't plan on going anywhere soon. So whatever your time line is fine by us.
Buying a home in the Lake Norman area is a process for most. You need time to learn about the area and the market before you are comfortable to make the move. This is where we can help. Having a local Lake Norman real estate agent helps streamline the process. Typically, it starts out with a casual conversation to find out what important to you. For example: Do you need to commute to work? Is being close to shopping and dinning important? Do you need to be close to medical facilities? Do you prefer a planned neighborhood or no HOA? Is waterfront or water view important? etc.
Once we know what you are looking for then we'll create an 'online portal' for you that provides you property updates on homes that meet your criteria. My favorite part of the portal is the split view that allows you to see the homes and the map at the same time. This gives you a feel for the area and the market and identifies some properties that we can check out when you come to town. Most clients are not ready to pull the trigger on their first trip out and it's not practical to view each new listing as it hits the market. This is where having a local Lake Norman real estate agent comes in handy. We can act as your boots on the ground. We're will preview the homes for you and many of our clients like us to face-time during the showings. We're a knowledgeable, laid back group and we promise a few laughs along the way. In fact, we like to start our visits with a boat tour on Lake Norman. There's no better way to 'break the ice' then a little sunshine and beautiful views of Lake Norman. Give us a call and let's chat about the possibilities. 704.892.6350
