I've been searching for my first home in the Lake Norman area for a while now. I think I prefer Cornelius. I'd like to be in a neighborhood offering a community pool, lower HOA's that aren't too strict(I want to put up a fence and trees if I want), resale is good, have 20 somethings and families, not all retirees,and not loud all the time, ect. Also, I have a jetski I want to dock half the year, I'm willing to rent from someone nearby or having a slip myself is great, but the house matters more. I'm looking in the 200-300's. What is McKenzie Place, Sawyer's Landing, Blue stone like? Any Suggestions Please???

My best advice to you is to find a very good LOCAL Lake Norman realtor.

A realtor like that will save you a lot of time and have things to show you that you would never find on your own. Your price range is VERY difficult on the water so you really need all the inside help you can get. Best of luck!

I'm not looking for something right on the water, just preferably a water community or a set up where I can rent a slip from someone nearby. I have a great realtor, but they cannot disclose information about the neighborhoods and it has been diffucult to locate what areas have slips/places to put in and what don't. I was told my price range was higher for a first time home buyer and have seen some great places. I just want to make sure it's in a good location and offers what I'm looking for. Thanks for your help!

No offense, really, but if your "great" realtor finds it "difficult to locate what areas have slips/places to put in", they ain't so great. A realtor who really knows the lake area would be driving you right to such places.

Since you clarified that you don't have to be right on the water (sorry I misread that!) then you are right, your price range is fine

Sorry, the southern end of the city/county is more my area

I can tell you this, Cornelius is a good area - there aren't too many places you'd ever have to avoid there. Traffic can be a bit#h, but many people seem to think it's worth it to be on/at the lake.

If you have kids, you'd really want to look up the stats for the high school kids in those areas are assigned to
