Harrisburg has been one of the best kept suburban secrets in the Charlotte area. Only a 20 minute drive to uptown/downtown Charlotte, Harrisburg boasts some of the lowest property taxes in the area and superb public school assignments. In fact, I live in Harrisburg for the very reasons I just mentioned. Harrisburg is small-5900 households, no apartments, and no Wal-Mart (the town successfullyl fought off Wal-Mart's attempt to open a store at the edge of town). Restaurants and office are cropping up all over, yet the town still manages to maintain the feel of a small town. One of the most exciting developments is The Epic, which is the revived version of The Preserve at Greyson Ridge. The Epic will be a residential community built around a Fazio-designed golf course. It's a very exciting design and the development should help the current trend of rising prices. Harrisburg, by virtue of being small, doesn't have a lot of inventory at any given time-so days on market are short and list price/sales price ratios are consistent at 98.5%.
