Charlotte Homes for Sale

Charlotte Real Estate

Downtown City Lifestyle, Lake Living, Land, Retirement, and Amenities all available in Charlotte NC

As the main metropolitan area in the Carolinas, Charlotte draws nearly 500 newcomers each week. Approximately one in four inhabitants has moved to Charlotte in the last decade.

What is the attraction to Charlotte NC you may ask?

Excellent jobs in a business-minded atmosphere, a can-do community spirit, a mild climate with four seasons, rolling land and rural beauty, good schools, affordable homes in communities that range from Main Street Small Town to Downtown large city, and plenty of entertainment, including professional sports, outdoor recreation, and arts and entertainment.


An international airport, system of Interstate highways, with short drives to the mountains to the west or the coast to the east make the Queen City of Charlotte NC perfect for frequent travelers, family trips to the North and South, and fabulous weekend getaways.

North Carolina has numerous award-winning golf courses, and mountain resorts. Water activities are also mulutiful with nearby Lake Norman in North Carolina, and Lake Wylie in South Carolina. Both lakes are great destinations for day trips, or for lakeside living.

Residents are able to choose from sleek new high-rise condominiums or century-old Fourth Ward Victorians and the option to walk to and from work. Spare time offers Broadway shows, gallery openings, cutting edge restaurants, enjoyable night life, outdoor performances, museums and professional sports.

Just outside the Center City are Charlotte's first ring of suburbs – the grand mansions and willow-oak lined streets of Myers Park, the charming cottages of Dilworth and the funkier, younger and cheaper revitalized neighborhoods of Elizabeth, Plaza-Midwood and Cotswold.

Head down to South Charlotte's Ballantyne, Stonecrest and Arboretum communities and across the Union County line into Weddington where you will find one of the finer suburbs of Charlotte.

Upscale shopping centers, high standard schools, golf courses and family friendly communities are the standard in this more conservative, transplant-heavy area of Charlotte.


Waterfront Properties

Water views also remain a top draw as Lake Wylie, southwest of Charlotte, offers new communities such as The Palisades and The Sanctuary as well as restored older homes on quiet side streets. Lake Norman, north of the city, is more urbanized with the cities of Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson, Denver and Mooresville.

New arrivals can enjoy shopping at stores in SouthPark Mall, viewing boat traffic from the deck of T-Bones at the Lake on beautiful Lake Wylie; dancing with friends at Menage, sipping Irish imports at Ri-Ra, listening to jazz at Blue, or tailgating at a Carolina Panthers NFL game. Charlotte holds a wide variety of options to entertain everyone.

"You don't have an identity based on the number of old buildings or museums you have, your identity is wrapped up in who lives here". Charlotte is really a cross-section of America, with people moving here from all over the country and making it their own. Part of the lure is that it's new and clean. It's just waiting for people to make their imprint on it."

Charlotte is the second-largest banking center in the U.S. behind New York City. The 60-story skyscraper with the crown of white lights on top is the Bank of America Corporate Center and soars higher than any other building from Philadelphia to Atlanta.

Fortune magazine named Charlotte the nation's #1 pro-business attitude. The city's CROP Walk fund-raiser is the most lucrative in the nation, and the local Habitat for Humanity branch has built more homes for the poor than any other affiliate.

Charlotte Motor Speedway hosts two NASCAR races in the month of May and one in October making the track and the NASCAR Hall of Fame downtown a must visit for auto racing fans all over the country.
Professional Teams

The Carolina Panthers NFL team, battled to the Super Bowl (but lost) in 2004 and  in 2015.  The furture looks bright for the panther with star quarterback Cam Newton leading the charge. The Charlotte Bobcats of the NBA is a young and exciting team under the watchful eye of NBA Hall of Famer and North Carolinian Michael Jordan. The Bobcats field a young and exciting team against some of the best the NBA has to offer at their state of the art facility Time Warner Cable Arena.

Queen City residents will treat you royally. Charlotte is a town where people install water fountains for runners – and their dogs; where neighbors show up with cookies, cakes and casseroles for newcomers; and where most people are more apt to ask where you go to church than where you work.
