How To Buy A Place In Charlotte At A 37% Discount
It's Easy…you just have to know where to look!
I go through mountains of information each week about North Carolina and South Carolina.
I take a lot of time finding it, sorting it, and organizing it. A lot of it you never hear about, because I feel it's not that helpful or valuable.
This week I was searching through Forbes for any little pearls that most people just race on by. Things that don't make the cover, but can mean a lot if you follow them up, and know what to look for.
There was an article on middle-class neighborhoods that were robust in 2005 and now are "threadbare", as the writer put it.
If you're considering Charlotte, North Carolina as a best place for you to retire or relocate to in the Carolinas, then this could be a good deal for you.
There's an area located within Charlotte, NC called Myers Park/Elizabeth.
The Forbes article reported that housing values there have decreased by approximately 37%.
I looked into it further, and many houses are being listed at sale prices that are approximately $70 per square foot, which is very reasonable!
And these weren't dilapidated old shacks.
Remember, most places in North Carolina and South Carolina have not experienced as big a decline in value as other places across the country. So, this to me is worth checking out!
I'll be there the week after next, I'll look into it in greater detail, and will be writing further about it, in a coming post.
Let me know if Charlotte, NC is a place you're considering to retire or relocate to in the Carolinas.
