Why Move to Charlotte North Carolina?

Like many people I meet these days,  I am a transplant to the Charlotte North Carolina area.  Charlotte seems to be a popular destination for families looking to relocate. I know we all have our own personal reasons as to why we moved here.  But what seems to be the underlying reasons people choose Charlotte North Carolina?

  I for one made the decision a little over five years ago to up root my family from the Northeast and move them to Charlotte North Carolina.  For me and many people I talk to one of the biggest reasons was the cost of living.  If you have ever lived in a state where it seemed only the wealthy could afford a nice home;  you know exactly what I mean. Home prices in Charlotte North Carolina are considered signifcatly more reasonable.  Taxes are lower than most parts fo the country.

  In fact, Charlotte North Carolina has an affordability index that rated it among the top ten cities according to US News and World Report. They base the study on the home prices in correlation to the average income. Charlotte North Carolina  ranks near the top of that list.  What it means is more people in the area can afford to purchase a home than in most cities in the united States.

The great news is that with mortgage rates at the current historic lows the opportunity to purchase a home has never been better and the choices out there are many.

if you are considering to make Charlotte North Carolina your home;  give me a call.  I would be happy to show you why I made the descsion five years ago to move here and call Charlotte home.
