Kannapolis is a melting pot. There are a mix of Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Indians, Asians, etc. You would not feel out of place in any part of Kannapolis. I am a life long resident. I have watched Kannapolis grow from a small no name city, to having a bus system, a baseball team, some of the best hospitals in the area and being nominated and winning an award for being one of America's all time favorite home town cities.

Its location is close enough to Charlotte, the mountains, the beaches (North and South Carolina) just hours away from Atlanta, Charleston and the Triad region of NC (Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. It has access to google fiber and major other companies that are nearby.

Lake Norman, Lake Wylie and the High Rock lake are all within a stone's throw from Kannapolis.

As far as recommendations, the Moose road area would be a good choice for a Caucasian family with two kids. The area is close to Lake fisher, The Intimidators baseball team, Interstate 85, and all other major cities in and around the area.

Good afternoon, Adrienne:
A second level review is not necessarily bad. MI if you are putting less than 20% down would also not be unexpected. If you are purchasing a home, you might want to be prepared to make application with another lender if you don't like your banks final answer. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up. For the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click. ... more

Good afternoon, JDubb:
To see if you might qualify, you should follow the below link and read the Trulia Blog Can I get a Home or Am I Stuck Renting? If you meet this basic criterion, we can work with you to find you a lender and when we know what the lender is willing to do for you, we can work on finding you a home which fits that financing. We are HUD registered brokers if you are wanting to explore that $100 down program for buying government owned homes. We are also familiar with other 1st time buyer programs. If you have a full time agent with a Masters degree in Planning with Finance and over two decades of experience, working for you, you will likely do better in negotiations. I'd be pleased to provide that service. ... if you appreciate this answer, please give it a "thumbs up", or if this was the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a "best answer" click . ... more

OK so I did not know how to link to the answers below. So I am writing in the answer spot. My agent was awesome. She did everything that she was suppose to. My Home inspector did everything he was suppose to. My attorney friend has stated that the seller, on the disclaimer, was suppose to let me know about the permit and since he did not it is considered fraud. The home inspection was fine and passed. But he was not able to check to see if there was footers or not on the new addition. He is also not able to let me know if the construction part was done correctly, due to the walls are there. I was unaware that a permit was suppose to be pulled when he was building the addition on to the house. No one disclosed that information to me. The seller also built a deck over the septic tank, which the septic inspector did not let me know that it could not be like that. The home inspector did not know where the septic was or he would of told me that. It is a buyer be ware state and I understand that. When, as a buyer, you do every inspection as needed and go above the norm, why is it that the buyer is the one to suffer and have more expense when the seller did not disclose all the information he was suppose to? So for all real estate groups, make sure to tell the buyer or seller to make sure that all permits are there. If the seller does not disclose weither or not the permit is there, in the disclaimer part of the closing, it is consider fraud and the buyer can fill suite against the seller. Again, my agent is still a wonderful agent and continues to help me through this mess, even though she has finished her job. ... more

Larry Story answered:

As Don stated depending on the sites you are looking at there is a lag time in the updates. When posting my listings I have them pushed up to approximately 60 websites (depending on the type of listing it is). Now some of those sites are "fed" by others. For example, Trulia is a third party website. So if I post to my personal website that site will push the information up to Trulia and many others. This takes anywhere from 24 to 48 hours sometimes. So just entering the contract into the MLS system does not change the status on many other sites you may see the home on. It is up to the listing agent to update those sites. Not to worry since it has no bearing on your contract.

Hope this helps,
