If you’re prepared to spend in the $300,000 price range, you can find a new house in many parts of Charlotte. But what that house will look like – and how big it is – will depend a lot on where you buy.
From close-in townhouses to places farther out in the suburbs with more yard and more living space, the offerings can look very different. Commute times, how much space you need for kids and what kind of lifestyle is important (Walking distance to bars and restaurants, or a community pool for your kids?) will factor into buying decisions.
Here’s what you can get in that price range at seven places in Charlotte for similar prices, at sizes ranging from 1,300 to almost 3,600 square feet. These are all new construction:
