Charlotte, NC Real Estate

Charlotte NC Real Estate Overview

Charlotte is a rising star in the South, a growing diversified economy, a first class airport with hundreds of direct connections, growing light rail and a great appeal to young people, have caused major population growth since 2000. Over 400,000 new folks moved here, many from New England and the rust belt, but many from Florida and out west too. That is 2nd fastest in the nation for a large US city. Said another way, it is a city about the size of Cincinatti has moved here.

Why? There are many reasons, but here is what businesses say: We have a highly educated and talented workforce, a great airport, and a moderate cost of living.
We move many people in "corporate moves" and "moves of choice." Major companies have relocated their corporate headquarters, or North American operations here- companies like Sealed Air, Electrolux, Metlife. The relocations by choice are generally families fleeing the high cost of living in the north east, the harsh winters of the great lakes and high taxes. It is just easier here to make a living in Charlotte NC and have a little more left over at the end of the month. A transplanted (From Chatham NJ) physician's wife told me that last year.

Those are just the highlights, but having lived here 21 years I would add that I like the spirit here, the "can-do" attitude, and the thought and planning that has gone on with growth. Charlotte's Uptown area (you call it Downtown) is alive at night and on weekends, and the very hip Southend on the light rail is a craft beer mecca, and recently attracted its first major corporate move Dimensional Fund Advisers. That's huge!

Charlotte is called the Queen City because it was named after Queen Charlotte, the German born queen of King Charles of Britain (Charleston - originally Charles Town, is named after him) It goes a bit deeper because Charlotte is in Mecklenburg County, and Mecklenburg is the state in German the good Queen Charlotte was born.

Charlotte real estate, measured by average price per sq foot is very near pre recession levels. Volume is about the level before junk sub-prime financing became popular in 2005. The best homes move on and off the market quickly, with the average of the Top 20 markets, 45% of the homes sold in 30 days or less. (Days on Market)
