Hello r_bomgardner,

It may be difficult to find land (and enough of it) that would allow livestock in the actual town of Pineville. However, there are areas surrounding Pineville that might be perfect for you ... areas like Indian Land SC or Union county NC which are a short commute to Pineville. There are quite a few equestrian neighborhoods and/or land in the areas surrounding Pineville.

I would appreciate the opportunity to assist you in finding the right places to look at. I am licensed in both states. Please contact me to discuss further,

Lori Turner

Hi Buyer moving in the summer,

The owner financing is different because the seller must not own an mortgage on most owner financing or payoff the loan at closing. One of my first sales twenty years ago was owner financing because the property had more land value with seven acres than the home was worth. It all worked out with a 50k down payment and the bank agreement to loan the new owners within a few months. Most owners financing is not for a long period of time shorter than the banks loan in most cases. Every home is different so call/text or email 704-763-4486 and we will find out what you can offer to the seller. ... more

There are currently 14 townhomes and condos for sale in Pineville. These are detailed here:

If you were to purchase this home at Stratford Lake:, your monthly expenses would look about like this, assuming you have 580+ FICO no lates in 12 months, no recent foreclosures or bankruptcy and assuming the below FHA insured loan.

$105,000 purchase price
3.5% equity
$3,675 total downpayment (depending on your income, there may be ways to get this lower)
$101,325 Loan amount
$124,800 tax value
5.00% Interest rate
$30 yr mortgage term

$139 HOA fee
$544 Principal & Interest
$135 Taxes
$47 Insurance
$43 Mortgage Ins. (PMI)
$907 Total monthly investment

However, if you are not required to stay within the city limits, there are 450 townhomes and condos currently for sale within 5 miles of Carolina Place Mall, Pineville. They range in price from under $50,000 to over $650,000. At $50,000 purchase price, your monthly payment could be in the low $600's. At $180,000. it could be about $1,350 a month.

If your monthly rent or lease payment is more than a house payment and you plan to stay here for at least 2 years (to get the capital cains exemption) buying might make sense for you. Some of the higher value homes are short sales, so if you are needing to move quickly, the long approval process for this type of sale might not work for you.

If I were buying, I'd take a closer look at these "favorite 2+bedrooms homes under $180 within 5 miles of the mall":

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. ...and if you like this answer, please give it a "thumbs up". .

Yes there are. There are many Latinos living in Charlotte, Pineville, Monroe (NC) and York and Rock Hill (SC). When I worked for La Voz de Carolina and ImpactoLatino we were tracking the influx of the Comunidad Latinoamericana in the Carolinas. The latest US Census is a great resource as it shows pockets of the community in and around Charlotte. A simple drive down many of the streets in these towns will help you discover wonderful signs in many different languages, among them are those in Spanish. We even have a 3 branches for a credit union devoted to the Latino Community: and have several Spanish language radio stations, newspapers and magazine publications. We have a latin festival and there is even a shopping center near Carowinds devoted to the latino community.

If I can answer any more questions, llame!

As real estate agents we are not allowed to "steer" customers toward particular neighborhoods or areas based on ethnicity, but you asked a general question about whether there are communities. There are not 'latino neighborhoods' but that was not your question. A good way to discover the community, if you cannot drive around yourself, is to pickup a copy of some of the publications and look at the addresses and locations.

It has something to do with a collapsing economy, overpriced realty, a US dollar that looks to make a cliff dive, soaring unemployment, hordes of delusional sellers waiting to be foreclosed on.

I am pretty sure the above reasons have something to do with it. Oh ya....silver and gold are much better investments being so cheap and all.
