Yes, as others have said there are single story condos as well as townhouses. Another option would be a patio home. With patio homes you have a single family home that is in a community with most of the features of a townhouse or condo, such as yard work done for you, club house/pool area. There are quite a few or these complexes. I just listed and now have a contract on a small single-story unit in the $100,000 range in south Charlotte. I also have another client who is looking for looking at both townhouses and patio homes in south Charlotte but in the $200,000 to $300,000 range. There are some very nice fourplex type units as well as The Cottages which is located in Pineville which is in the southern part of Mecklenburg County close to one of our big malls. Off of Rea Road in south Charlotte, there are quite a number of single story communities that are in the $100,000 to $200,000 range.
