Charlotte Named One Of The South's Best Cities By

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty



Here's how described the Queen City:


"Visit Charlotte and you'll find a city with charm to spare. The Queen City is a destination for the arts; there's always something happening at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, Levine Center for the Arts, and the Visulite Theatre. It's a hub for enjoying nature, including Little Sugar Creek Parkway, Freedom Park, Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, the US National Whitewater Center, and Lake Norman. There's a lot to do an see in Charlotte. "


And those of us who make Charlotte our home couldn't agree more! The Southern Living article barely scratched the surface about everything that's happening in Charlotte. And it's the Charlotte lifestyle that also had Zillow including the Queen City in the 10 Hottest Real Estate Markets for 2022.



This spring, home buyers in the Greater Charlotte region will continue to face strong competition, rising prices and tight inventory that will be snatched off the market quickly. Home buyers need to be prepared for strong competition for homes, which means bidding wars in certain areas and days on market remaining low. Home affordability will also suffer.


Despite a decrease in population growth nationally, North and South Carolina continue to add population at a faster clip than much of the rest of the nation, according to the US Census. Combined with population growth in Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida,  the southeast will  become an increasingly bigger player both economically and politically as people move here.



People have continued to move to the Greater Charlotte area in large numbers despite the pandemic. Some 120 people are moving to the Charlotte region every day. The population in Charlotte, Gastonia and Concord has grown by 150,000 people within the last decade, according to the latest Census. People are moving here from all over the U.S. but most, around 6,500, came from New York City. According to Senior Vice President of Business Recruitment Stephen Pearce at the Charlotte Business Alliance,  “Charlotte area is one of the top 10 markets for those people who are looking to move out of the Manhattan area."



Charlotte Region Population Growth 2010-2020

The Charlotte Region's growth of 16.3% since 2010 is more than double the national average. Charlotte is now the 7th fastest growing large U.S. metro area. Moreover, the Charlotte Region is expected to grow by another 50% by 2050 with the region's population growing from about 3 million to 4.5 million.





Reasons for these moves include people moving here for jobs, for a lower cost of living, lower taxes, more space and less density, better quality of life, to follow children to be closer to grandchildren (the region ranks #1 for baby boomers who've chosen to retire close to their grandchildren, according to Meyers Research.) In fact, these baby boomers now have a new name -- "baby chasers." And because Charlotte is one of the top cities in the nation attracting millennials, it's become a top destination city for the parents of those millennials, as well.

George Souto hi George... when we first announced in late 1997 that we would be moving to Charlotte in spring of 1998 everyone thought we were talking about Charleston. People don't make that mistake any more! :)
