What we love: “The Arts District is a very diverse community that attracts all age groups, from young professionals to families with kids and empty nesters who want a vibrant neighborhood feel. There is something for everyone in NoDa — great restaurants, breweries, live music venues and more.
With the light rail 100 percent walkable from any location in the neighborhood, we offer something that most Charlotte neighborhoods cannot. NoDa has it all, and it seems people know it from the search results!” — Dana Burleson, Savvy + Co. Real Estate agent
Average List Price: $490,035
Percentage Change: Up 6.3% from last year
What we love: “Midwood is so popular in the prices are increasing because it is such a wonderful mix of historic charm and beautiful new construction homes. And the business district or “downtown“ is exploding with new restaurants, coffee shops, breweries and more. It’s also so convenient to Uptown.
Everyone who moved into the neighborhood ends up falling in love with it and wanting all of their friends to move there as well. It’s an amazing community of people with a ton of loyalty towards their neighborhood.” — Jeff King, Savvy + Co. Real Estate Agent
Average List Price: $383,673
Percentage Change: Up 7.8% from last year
What we love: “Given the history, architectural design and location of Wilmore, it’s easy to see why people are drawn to all that it offers. Very few neighborhoods offer the ability to walk to everything from restaurants, breweries, art galleries, stadiums, light rain, grocery stores, and anything else that you would want. Wilmore offers this lifestyle at a price much lower than its direct neighbor, Dilworth.” — Mike Feehley, Savvy + Co. Real Estate agent
Average List Price: $600,667
Percentage Change: Up 8.5% from last year
What we love: “Our family decided on Dilworth because walkability was number one on our list. We also adored the bungalow style architecture and smaller size of the older homes. We wanted a more minimalist life.
People who live here love the Historic District charm, the proximity to shops and restaurants, the proximity to Uptown, the parks, the old trees. It’s a beautiful area with amazing proximity to everything! What’s not to love?” — Sarah Martin, Savvy + Co. Real Estate Agent
Average List Price: $545,148
Percentage Change: Up 7.8% from last year
What we love: “SouthPark is the second largest business center in Charlotte and is just about six miles south of Uptown. In addition to businesses, the area is family friendly and a great central point to the city.
Neighborhoods here have mature landscaping with larger lots, making it one of the most picturesque areas in the city. Restaurants, shopping and great schools are just some of the reasons this area continues to grow and attract new residents.” — Eileen Nelis, Savvy + Co. Real Estate Agent
Average List Price: $590,995
Percentage Change: Up 17.5% from last year
What we love: “Chantilly has literally everything that you could want in five minutes or less. The streets of Chantilly always have activity and people greeting each other. The sense of community is strong.
My first day living in Chantilly came with a friendly welcome from new neighbors who offered seeds from their own garden for flowers, a loan of gardening tools and an invitation to stop by.” — Josh Starnes, Savvy + Co. Real Estate Agent
Average List Price: $615,310
Percentage Change: Up 3.2% from last year
What we love: “Cotswold was developed in the 1950s and ’60s, so many of the homes are brick ranches or split levels built on lots ranging from a half acre to over an acre. If you are looking for that neighborhood close to Charlotte’s downtown with a warm and friendly feel, then look no further than Cotswold.
Locals say, ‘If you can’t get it at Cotswold, you don’t need it!’ The shopping center offers a wide array of wonderful shops and restaurants, along with a grocery store, medical offices and banks.” — Charles Major, Savvy + Co. Real Estate Agent
Average List Price: $359,888
Percentage Change: Up 59.8% from last year
What we love: “Oakhurst is made up of homes primarily built in the 1940’s through 1960’s with a smattering of new construction (as well as updated rehabs) as the area continues its gain in popularity.
Many who are already priced out of the other hip hoods such as Plaza Midwood, Cotswold, NoDa, etc., look towards Oakhurst a nice affordable alternative — for now. Nearby parks, shops and eateries make this a top searched location for homeowners as well.” — Shannon Lynch, Savvy + Co. Real Estate Agent
Average List Price: $568,358
Percentage Change: Up 36.6% from last year
What we love: “Searches for the top schools in Charlotte make Sedgefield one of the most highly sought after neighborhoods for newly married couples and families with young children.
The large lots, tree lines, walkability to greenway connections, a close knit community, the new Sedgefield Shopping Center, trendy restaurants and bars along South Blvd., and plans for a new community garden are all appealing aspects that are checking boxes off checklists for many new home buyers.” — Jason Bridges, Savvy + Co. Real Estate Agent
Average List Price: $876,943
Percentage Change: Up 4.9% from last year
What we love: “Quite honestly, Myers Park checks off all of the boxes somebody would want in a community. It not only has beautiful homes, but also tree lined streets, large parks, great schools, close to all the best amenities in town. Boutiques, shops, restaurants, theaters abound in this neighborhood.
This has as been an established neighborhood for decades, and whether you are looking to buy or just curious to see some of the best real estate in Charlotte, Myers Park will no doubt strike your fancy!” — Matthew Means, Savvy + Co. Real Estate Agent
