Give Cathy Lynch a call. A great Broker/Agent in that area of NC.

Rusty, I agree with Chad - you don't want to go too small. In my past experience, it seems like about 1800-1900 feet is the smallest that makes most renters with kids comfortable - and it helps to have a fenced yard (for kids and/or pets) and a garage.

Hi Rusty, the good thing is that you can't really go wrong in the Lake Norman area. As far as resale, you have to ask yourself, "when I go to sell, which groups of people will my house appeal to?". With a small house, you're cutting out most people with families. With too large of a house, you could possibly be cutting out single people or young couples. I would say buy a 2500-3000 square foot house close to everything. In my opinion, Hampton Ridge and Cambridge Grove are two communities that you can get a good value in...250-300K give or take. If you want to go a little higher, Birkdale, Wynfield Forest, Wynfield Creek, Northstone, and The Hamptons are nice. They are all extremely close to everything.

Feel free to contact me if you'd like to speak further

That is a hard question to answer because the decision would be driven by how much you wanted to invest. I live in Huntersville and am closely watching the developments that are coming on line in our Northern cities. Very generally speaking, Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson are family communities, so home sizes tend to be on the larger end. There are many developments planned and/or under construction near future depots on the light rail that is being developed...I suspect those will be 'hot' neighborhoods once the rails are completed.
