I have been doing some online research into the possibility of a move to the Charlotte area, and would like some input from locals. We would like a house in the $250k- $350k range, near one of the lakes- Wylie, Mountain Island, or possible Norman, but I know the Lake Norman area is pricier than the others.

A subdivision that allows boats on trailers to be kept on driveways, or has a boat storage lot, plus is either near a public boat ramp or has one right there in the neighborhood. Would like a house less than 20 years old, but that's not an absolute.

I would rather not live too isolated, so am not looking for acreage.

We are not ready to move now, but researching what we'd be likely to find if this move becomes a reality.

Years ago we lived in Wake County, a few miles from Jordan Lake, and that's the kind of arrangement we'd like to find in the Charlotte area if we end up there.

Suggestions?

There are several neighborhoods in Tega Cay, SC that are in your price range. There is a marina on the peninsula with a boat ramp. You can't keep your boat at your home but there is a boat lot for storage.

There are several areas in the Lake Norman - Mooresville Area that would meet your initial criteria. Some neighborhoods off Stutts Road, such as Commodore Peninsula. You will likely want to find a home in a neighborhood without HOA; and check covenants and restrictions. Winslow Bay or Harbor Cove may also be good neighborhoods to check due to their neighborhood lake access. Wondering if you have any other criteria to meet as far as size or lot type?

We'd like 4 bedrooms, would like a single story house if possible, wooded lot. None are absolutes, but since we are in no hurry it never hurt to try.

The subdivisions suggested look good. Thanks!

If you don't mind putting your boat in a storage lot, almost any neighborhood in Huntersville on the west side of I-77 would fit your needs. There are numerous public, well maintained boat landings on not only Lake Norman, but you can get on Mountain Island Lake as well at the Duke Energy landing off Neck Rd.

Most of these neighborhoods have HOAs, but you can look at Breckenridge. Also you might also look at some of the older homes in Huntersville that are on town streets. Sherwood Dr. would be an example.
