Tega Cay on Lake Wylie is All About Location, Location, Location and Lifestyle, Lifestyle, Lifestyle!


In Polynesian, "tega cay" means beautiful peninsula... which is exactly what Tega Cay, South Carolina is... a beautiful 1600 acre peninsula on Lake Wylie just 20 miles south of Charlotte, North Carolina. The Tega Cay community began developing in the 1970's and was originally modeled after a Polynesia resort. It includes the Tega Cay Golf Club, a 27-hole golf course, a marina, the Tega Cay Beach & Swim Center, tennis courts at the Tega Cay Tennis Club, walking trails, waterfront parks and ball fields, and so much more. The town also has its own Police Department, Fire Department and Emergency Services Squad.
Tega Cay's motto is "Bonae Vitae/The Good Life" and once you visit and take a look around, you know exactly why that's so.
An upscale, lake-side community, Tega Cay provides a high quality of life, reasonable cost of living, and top-rated public schools. Its small-town feeling provides security and comfort, and sitting on Lake Wylie, it also provides virtually year-round recreation, including boating, golf, tennis, and more. Tega Cay's Park and Recreation Department is home to more than 4,500 participants annually and features youth baseball, flag football, soccer and softball. But adults are not left out with adult softball, kickball and senior games. And where else would you find both youth and adult croquet games?


This Charlotte region real estate monthly update for  Tega Cay, SC is provided by  Nina Hollander, Coldwell Banker Realty, Greater Charlotte area residential real estate expert and Tega Cay specialist. I've been opening doors for Tega Cay home buyers and sellers for 25 years.

Good morning Nina Hollander, Broker ,

I can understand the numbers better for Tega Cay with your comment "is a bit of a seasonal market as it sits on Lake Wylie... so lots of people focus in on it in early spring to get a head start on the boating season." That makes sense.

Nina, Despite the inventory figures for Tega Cay, the truth is that residences in premium neighborhoods can show different numbers.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX hi Dorie... if there's anything I've learned about buyers who want to be on or very near water, it's that they want instant gratification. They don't want to buy a home in November and have to wait till April to get on the water.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila... those premium neighborhoods not only can show differences to the overall market, they do so. Tega Cay started life as a remote fishing village we there are a lot of quirky homes out there that were just meant for summertime and fishing. These can take a bit of time to sell as they need very specific buyers.

Hi Nina,

My husband was an avid boater so I get the attraction to Tega Cay and how it is a seasonal area.  So it makes sense on what Wayne Martin says.  Buyers may be able to negotiate well right now especially if they have cash and are ready to go.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® Hi Sheri, sadly, if you are looking at homes on Lake Wylie or so close as makes no difference they don't come on market often... and they sell quickly without having to give a lot in price reductions.

Hi Nina- Tega Cay has always been a favorite of mine. I love the Tega Cay Trail and River Launch and can see why this area attracts boaters.

Brian England good morning, Brian... Tega Cay is a tiny little place with lots of housing options, close to Charlotte, great schools. What's not to like?

Nina Hollander, Broker - Tega Cay sounds exactly like a place that would please me because it is a tiny little upscale, lake-side community! Who doesn't want quality life style without the congestion? Compared to Mint Hill, Tega Cay sounds very stable and it would have to be a very good reason why anyone currently living there would want to move. However, population is a factor. Still in all, it sounds like the wait to purchase is worth it!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP hi Patricia... I always say that Charlotte enjoys the embarrassment of riches... Tega Cay and Mint Hill are very different. Tega Cay is more of lake living while Mint Hill is still enjoying lots of farms around the area.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS good morning, Paul.... I would guess it would be as it probably reminds of of the Puget Sound area.
