Davidson

Just 20 miles north of Charlotte on the banks of Lake Norman you’ll find Davidson, a quaint college town with its own great character.

Frequently listed as a top town to live in North Carolina - after just one visit you'll understand why.

Downtown is like something out of an old photograph with its traditional storefronts and the red brick campus buildings side by side on the main street.

Highly rated restaurants and small town retailers are plentiful in downtown Davidson - including Kindred, Main Street Books, and The Soda Shop.

Numerous events are held on the Village Green including the very popular Concerts on the Green and Christmas in Davidson.  

Homes near downtown are mostly historical with porches and shade trees but more affordable homes are just a short drive (or bicycle ride) away.

Davidson is very pedestrian and bicycle friendly and many nearby communities are served by sidewalks and greenway access.

Want to live on the lake? There are several lakeside condo communities (and a few lakeside houses) available in Davidson.

Small town atmosphere AND the Lake?  – Win-Win!

 

Pineville

Pineville occupies a fantastic location in the Charlotte-metro area. With easy access to I-77 and the I-485 loop as well as the Lynx light rail service it’s perfect for uptown commuters.   The old town center offers mainstreet shopping but Carolina Place Mall along with its numerous big box neighbors makes Pineville a center for retail shopping within Mecklenburg county.

In 2015 Movoto named Pineville the #1 Charlotte suburb for Young Professionals (article here) 

Citing the easy commute and the relative affordability of homes.

Relatively few properties come to market in the Pineville area reflecting the low inventory in the general Charlotte area.  Homes start in the mid $150s for townhomes and the $200s for single family homes.
