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.

 

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.
