Another Gem Added To Queen Charlotte's Crown

Charlotte North Carolina Economic Update

According to CNN Money Magazine and the latest census data release, population growth during the last decade made the South the fastest-growing region in the US.  Eight of the 11 metropolitan areas noted as highest in population growth including Austin, Charlotte, Raleigh and Orlando, were in the South.  The top three metropolitan areas were:

Raleigh, NC
Total Population: 1,130,490
Change From 2000: 41.8%

Austin, TX
Total Population: 1,716,289
Change From 2000: 37.3%

Charlotte, NC
Total Population: 1,758,038
Change From 2000: 32.1%

As the largest of the three and North Carolina's largest metropolitan area, Charlotte continues to boast expansion, affordable living and incredible job growth in a financial services hub as well as the newly tagged US Energy City.  What is so appealing about Charlotte is that although the growing metropolis has expanded tremendously, our 'good old' Southern roots have been preserved.  Charlotte is able to accommodate modern-day living, with a skyline that includes upscale condominium skyscrapers and century-old Fourth Ward Victorian homes (Uptown Charlotte) surrounded by golfing, lake, equestrian and 'farm' living in the suburbs.  Charlotte attracts young professionals, entrepreneurs, retirees, families and singles--all who have the option of a grand suburban life or a condo or home that is within walking distance to their jobs, oftentimes giving both a try during their time spent here in Charlotte.

Home to the headquarters of Bank of America, Charlotte remains a banking powerhouse with one of the highest ratio of bank branches to population in the nation, banking assets of approximately $2.3 trillion, second only to New York.  Recently Duke Energy, Siemens and The Shaw Group have been instrumental in propelling Charlotte to a top-tier energy city with multiple new expansions expected during the next 24 months.

Carolinas Healthcare Group employs 50,000 people in Charlotte, Wells Fargo/Wachovia employs 20,000 people and Bank of America employs almost 14,000.

Even out here in the Wild West, I hear often about how good things are in Charlotte and that for some reason you are not being hit like the rest of the country.  Lovely post, and congratulations!

Debe, I was surprised to see that many people employed Wells Fargo &  B of A in Charlotte, wow. Just for my curiosity what is the population of Charlotte?

Hooray for Charlotte, Debe.  I think our little town is shrinking a little.  We have so many 2nd home owners that do not count on the census, so our figures are a little skewed.

"locate the perfect Charlotte neighborhood first ... "

That is exactly how I help my buyers find their home - we eliminate the neighborhoods that do not work for them, then proceed from there.

It's unbelievable that little old Raleigh could have a million people.  I can remember when its biggest claim to fame (besides being memorized as a state capital) was that its girls were not all already taken by my fellow GI's from Ft. Bragg.
