Charlotte’s housing market feels increasingly frantic, with rock-bottom inventory and rising prices, but there are still new developments underway around the city competing for buyers.
Three of those developments offer a peek at those options: Urban townhouses, suburban townhouses and detached single-family houses farther out in the suburbs. Here’s a look at what $300,000 to $400,000 can buy you in three different areas around Charlotte:
Midwood View is under construction on Belle Terre Avenue, near Central and Thomas avenues. Starting in the low $400,000-range, the 12 townhouses are expected to be completed starting this fall.
The three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom units are being built in a “classic craftsman style exterior (and) is a nod to the neighborhood’s historic character,” according to the developer, Midwood View LLC. Marketed by Meca Realty, the townhouses are around 2,000 square feet
The townhouses will include skyline views of uptown Charlotte, the developers said, and include design features such as 10-foot ceilings and sliding barn doors.
The proximity (walking distance to Plaza Midwood’s main strip and a mile or so from uptown) is another major selling feature.
In Matthews, David Weekley Homes is building townhouses at Eden Hall. Starting in the $370,000s, the townhouses range from 1,700 to 1,900 square feet. The townhouses include two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a two-car garage.
The first units are expected to be ready in the fall.
The community near Marion Drive and Matthews Township Parkway is within walking distance of downtown Matthews, and includes amenities such as walking trails with a lake and dock, a gazebo and a fire pit.
Single-family in the suburbs
Taylor Morrison is launching sales at Walden, a 377-lot subdivision in Huntersville, with 10 single-family floor plans. Houses there will start in the low $300,000s, with sizes ranging from 1,877 to more than 4,300 square feet. Buyers can choose between designs with two to six bedrooms.
The development is off Huntersville-Concord Road, near Interstate 77 and downtown Huntersville.
“Walden offers a wide variety of new home options and an ideal location,” said Kevin Granelli, Charlotte division president for Taylor Morrison, in a statement.
