Does anyone know why there seems to be so many homes for sale in Hunter Oaks? I really love that area but I am beginning to wonder why so many homes are for sale there.

Hunter Oaks is a nice community. Most of the families who helped open the Marvin Elementary school came from that community. They have been very close-knit and community-minded.

Of the ones who I know who are moving, I think they have reached a point in their lives (their kids are now aging into middle/high) that they are looking for/or can afford maybe a bigger lot. I've known families looking at Lawson and Chimneys at Marvin. I didn't hear them say they were unhappy in Hunter Oaks, just ready for a change. It does tend to be a very kid-friendly neighborhood and maybe folks are just looking for "less kids?" (Maybe just my perspective, though).

Also, a lot of those neighbors have battled the proposed Wal-Mart nearby for a long time. Maybe they have just decided to give up the fight and move on?

Or, maybe just natural turnover and it is concentrated during this time of the year because people with children are hoping to move during school break?

All these are just guesses on my part ... I haven't heard anything negative about Hunter Oaks.

There are 30 on the MLS. 20 are for sale, 10 are sale pending.

That's pretty healthy for a subdivision of that size (at least 350 lots).

We couldn't seem to find enough for sale in Hunter Oaks when we were looking last year! Ended up in Ft Mill and love it!

I would guess the same. My friends in Hunter Oaks love it. (well, one friend isn't that happy with it, but it isn't the actual housing, just usual neighbor issues that can happen anywhere.) We go over there for trick or treating with them because there are SO many kids over there!

My wife and I are moving to Charlotte this summer - we're expecting our first child next month and want a community with lots of kids. We also want low taxes, but still close to 485. We were house hunting there last weekend and narrowed down our choice to one community: Hunter Oaks. We LOVED it. Exactly what we're looking for. It just felt right.

I was also surprised that the house we loved has been on the market for 4 months. Maybe it's overpriced? Or maybe buyers are looking for new construction?

I know this doesn't answer the question - but just thought I would throw in my two cents.

I live in Hunter Oaks -- Love it Hunter Oaks has more than 1000 homes in the subdivision, so all in all, not a lot for sale if you look at the percentages.
