I like the look of those tennis courts in Lawson!  I think if I were to ever move from where I am now, I would want to move into a community that has tennis courts and a lap-swim pool.

Buyers need to be particularly alert if they want to buy at Lawson in Waxhaw.  Days on market down from 60 to 2 speaks volumes.
