Myers Park

Taking a drive through Myers Park is like taking a drive to another era. The wide & curving boulevards are lined with trees. Unique homes set back from the road on large lots are the norm and it’s easy to see why this is one of Charlotte’s most sought after areas.

The area was a planned ‘subdivision’ from the days before the word subdivision meant what it does today. Carved out originally in the late 19th century but more fully developed in the 1920s and 30s the area is home to several historic homes as well as Queens University.

Prices in Myers Park are high with numerous homes (including condos) selling at over $1million. Occasionally smaller condos are available in the $200s but single family homes are rarely available under the mid $400s. Homes sell fast and the market is extremely competitive so it is important to be well prepared if planning a purchase in this area.

Fourth Ward

Uptown’s Fourth Ward extends to the north-west from Trade and Tryon to the I-277 loop. There are some beautiful single family homes in this area – mostly located along Poplar and Pine and W.9th and 8th streets. These homes are generally around 2000 sq ft and priced at over $500k this is an expensive choice but popular with those who enjoy a small town feel so close to the city center. Due to high demand it’s extremely difficult to find one of these properties.

Condos are much easier to find – but even the smaller units are expensive and sell quickly. Most of the condos are although a few older buildings like “The Poplar” built in 1927 are located in this area.

This uptown area offers a great commute and is walking distance from most of Uptown’s sports and entertainment venues.

South Park

Upscale residential areas near the South Park mall are much sought after. South Park offers an great range of shopping & dining opportunities and over the past 15 years there has been a massive growth in housing options as condos & towhomes have seemed to fill every available sliver of land.

Anchored around the sprawling South Park mall this area does present some commuting problems as roads are always busy, but despite that continues to be popular with home buyers.

Condos are available starting in the mid $100s for a smaller unit but very few single family homes are available under the $300k mark. Larger homes can reach into the multi-millions depending on location.

This is a fast moving market with correctly priced homes selling very quickly.
