Lake View
Many other people have and still are. There are many reasons why. Are you tired of the cold weather, the high prices due to lack of space and high population, maybe it’s the irritated people dealing with the daily rat race. Sound familiar? It was all of the above for me. Although there are many great things about living up north, my wife and I were ready for a change. We were looking for that perfect place to move. After searching high and low and investigating different places that fit the criteria we were looking for, the Lake Norman area seemed to look the best. We visited a number of other possibilities and we decided that Lake Norman, North Carolina was the perfect fit.

By now I’m sure you’re wondering what is so special about Lake Norman. Well, there are a number of things. Over 500 mile of shoreline and over 30 miles long, Lake Norman is the largest man-made lake in the North Carolina. If you do not feel like hanging out at the lake you are just 15 minutes from the city of Charlotte, 45 minutes from the mountains and 3 hours from the ocean. Lake Norman area’s geographic placement is perfectly placed. The weather is great. North Carolina has really long spring and fall seasons which average in the mid 70’s with almost no humidity.

The economy is anchored by companies such as Lowes Home Improvement, Rubbermaid and Irwin Tools along with the major industries of Banking and NASCAR. A strong economy breeds job growth and job growth breeds relocation to the area. Thirty six new residents move to the Charlotte (Lake Norman) area everyday and they all need a place to live. Homes in the Lake Norman area are priced from the low $200’s to up over $5 million.

The Charlotte area (Lake Norman) has been voted one of the top places in the United States to live by Forbes Magazine and was one of only five cities in the United States that gained home value in 2007 (June ’06 to June ’07). It’s that place you have been looking for.

Lake Norman, NCThe Charlotte Area is 1 of 5 areas in the United States that home values rose in 2007. Amongst all the media driven panic about the housing market going bad, five areas in the United States gained home values in a year that most areas lost value. The Charlotte area, Lake Norman included gained 6.8% in home value from June of ’06 to June of ’07.

I generally serve the Lake Norman area which is about 15 minutes north of the city of Charlotte. Although the market has slowed here as well, it remains very strong as a whole. Many buyers are still contacting me on a weekly basis to find a home in the Lake Norman area. I have found that the biggest obstacle I have been dealing with is that people looking to move here from out of state are having more trouble than usual selling their current house. This has caused local home listings to stay on the market a bit longer than they were in months past.

The bottom line is that the Charlotte / Lake Norman real estate market is still very strong but is being slightly affected by other markets not doing as well.

If you are looking for a place to move that has a beautiful lake with plenty to do, is 40 minutes from the mountains, 15 minutes from the City and 3 hours from the Ocean, Lake Norman North Carolina is worth checking out. The Charlotte area has been voted one of the best places to live in America by Forbes Magazine and a number of other national publications.
