Over the past few years, I have had the awesome pleasure & opportunity of working as a Realtor within Baxter Village at Keller Williams Realty. The location, the amenities offered and the lifestyle of the community overall are ones that most people love and they always feel a comfort once they have arrived.
Residents and business tenants alike will tell you that the area surrounding Baxter Village has developed by leaps and bounds in the past decade, but that it has stood the test of time as the economy and real estate market have shifted both UP and then DOWN. From a Realtor's perspective, I have seen Baxter Village be one of the most resilient and still ever-popular communities in the Charlotte Metro marketplace. When I show homes here, I am confident that my client is making a sound investment that will continue to resale over time due to not only what the community has to offer, but also due to location (right off I-77), low property taxes and the award winning schools. The combination of those three have helped not only Baxter Village see extreme growth and building, but also the area surrounding the community to grow stronger and more developed to carry the demands of the growing population, etc......

Community in Baxter Village: Baxter Village is home to Orchard Park Elementary school which is very important to alot of families looking to move to the area as they like the idea that their children are close during the day. Also within the community is the Fort Mill library which always has a schedule of activities throughout the week for the little ones who like storytime and checking out books. And last but not least, Baxter Village is home to the Fort Mill YMCA which has an indoor swimming pool, outdoor waterpark for the summer, soccer fields, fitness classes, gym, fitness equipment and more.

Within Baxter Village, there are 2 large community centers which each have a swimming pool and can be rented privately for activities for a small fee. The community also has tennis courts, several playgrounds, many common open spaces for playing as well as 500 acres of woods, trails and parks. Baxter Village offers more amenities than most all communities in both Fort Mill and the Charlotte area.
Real Estate in Baxter Village: One of my favorite parts of the community is the housing availability. Once completed, Baxter Village will have well over 1200 homes and townhomes that are of quality construction and built under strict architectural guidelines. Single family homes start in the low $200s and can go as high as $700,000 with the average being between $300,000-$450,000. Townhomes can be found from $150,000-$225,000. Currently, there are still a few opportunities left to build within Baxter, however, all lots should be built out by the end of 2012. Builders who have built within the community include David Weekley Homes, Saussy Burbank, SE Miller, Evans Coghill, Lillian Floyd, DR Horton and Pulte Homes.

I have enjoyed helping many of my clients make Baxter their home, and they have all had nothing but wonderful comments to say about their home as well as their community.
