In ten years from now, which area do you think will be more desirable and have the most appreciation of value?

Lake Norman East
Lake Norman West
Waxhaw, Union
Fort Mills

Or any other places you would like to add to the list.

All of the above. I'd add Lake Wylie Area to the list.

Good addition. My guess would be the areas near the lakes will be the best.

West side of Lake Norman, i.e. Denver, Sherrills Ford, etc. It's FAR from being overbuilt there and its only a matter of time before it starts. It's going well so far, but once the whole housing market (nationally) picks up, I think you'll start seeing some decent profits on the west end.

I think the Denver area is just too far from uptown Charlotte. Or maybe it is traffic but it always seems to take FOREVER to get there. My husband did some training in that area a few years ago before we were married and when I would leave uptown it could easily take me an hour most days. Even without traffic it still seems so far.

I think all areas will appreciate but I am voting for Fort Mill although I think any lakefront property will appreciate tremendously. My house has already appreciated about 25%, well according to what other people have sold for.

I don't think she wanted to know what places were the best in relation to uptown Charlotte tho? I know I take HWY 16 into Charlotte all the time and the drive is really not bad at all. From HWY 150 and HWY16 it takes me 40 minutes to get to the Charlotte-Douglas Airport which I really don't think is that bad at all. Most of my time is consumed driving the old HWY16 to 73, and once I am on the new part of HWY16 (there is never any traffic) I can zoom right in. Times have changed over the passed few years I guess with the addition of HWY 16.

I think the days of double digit equity increases are way over, so if you got it already, consider yourself lucky.

Thanks for all the feed back. I really am excited also about the Denver area. It doesn't seem to be plowed down corn fields with 50 different types of developments on it, yet??? Does the Denver area have any mountain views or is it mainly flat?

still too far from the mountains. You can see mountains in Hickory, NC with some lots, but still far away. I wouldnt call Denver flat, its rather hilly, but its still gorgeous and still quiet in essence.

Neat question! My vote is the Denver and Fort Mill Areas and Lancaster County down 521-spinoff of Ballantyne.
Waxhaw is already busting out the seams and we need to catch up to the enormous growth.
Lake area will always be a hot spot.
