1/4 acre is a pretty large lot IMO for $225K

I can guarantee you one thing, if I didn't have kids in school here I'd certainly move to Statesville or a surrounding area (Rowan maybe) out of Mooresville. I can't think of a reason to limit yourself (unless it was schools then by all means don't go to Statesville). Nothing against Mooresville as it's a safe place to raise a family and has plenty going for it but if privacy and/or space were my things, that's going to cost you here.

The OP doesn't want to be on a well, nor do they want to be on a septic system.

Municipal water can be found in Statesville, but I would imagine that a house built in the 60s-70s might have a septic tank.

(I am not arguing with you or your suggestion, but I have a feeling that the OP is going to be looking for a bit)

There are only four single family houses in all of Troutman listed under $225,000 currently and only one of those has a garage. It will likely be a waiting game for the OP to see if more listings come on the market in spring that meet their criteria or compromising on their requirements.

I think you're right.

LOL I live in Mooresville, in a newer house (2010) and am on a well and septic. Certainly no given because the address is Mooresville you'll have both. Granted I'd say the majority of Mooresville addresses have both amenities I'd imagine.

Good luck to OP though, might be a bit of a wait and will likely need to make offers before it's ever listed to improve their chances.

I can understand the attraction to having City water (there's zero maintenance), but I cannot understand why the OP doesn't want a septic system.

We love our septic system; treated properly they're trouble free, and we avoid paying sewer charges.
