Why People are Choosing to Move to Charlotte, NC

Charlotte lifestyle

It's all in the lifestyle.  Charlotte has more to offer than most other cities...it's that simple.  Charlotte is just starting to get the respect it deserves as being the 20th largest city in the country and did you know, that per-capita, there are more millionaires in Charlotte than in any other city in the country? 

So What Is Charlotte Known For?

  • Banks - Charlotte is the 2nd largest banking center in the country.
  • Parks....there are parks scattered everywhere in Charlotte and a greenway that runs around the city that gets a lot of use from bikers, runners and dog walkers.  These areas are always well maintained and are a huge asset to the city.
  • Tree lined streets in most of the neighborhoods to the south of the city.  The trees are a part of the Eastover, Myers Park and Dilworth neighborhoods.
  • Affordable living expense - you will definitely get more for your money here then you probably think.  Check out houses for sale in Charlotte.  The housing prices are low in Charlotte and the rental prices are also dropping.
  • Growing professional sports reputation - Charlotte has a solid NFL team and a promising NBA team with Michael Jordan being the new majority owner.  Charlotte houses the AAA affiliate team (Charlotte Knights) for the Chicago White Sox.  Charlotte is also the new home to the old Albany River Rats.  This is the affiliate team for the professional NHL team Carolina Hurricanes that play out of Raleigh, NC.  Of course Charlotte is also the home of Nascar...Nascar Hall of Fame located Uptown and the speedway located in Concord.
  • Growing Uptown Lifestyle and Nightlife - The condo buildings have been going up fast for the last several years.  The economy forced short sales and foreclosures to lower the prices of the condo market Uptown.  Now the prices are compelling and people have been moving in to take advantage of the deals and to enjoy the Uptown lifestyle.  The Epicenter, located at the corner or College & Trade is the hot attraction.  The Epicenter is where you will find many of the popular bars and clubs.
