Why is Rock hill's home value is generally lower than Fort Mill? Better school in Fort Mill?

Any good school district in Rock Hill?

Thank you.

I would assume because more people want to live in Fort Mill than Rock Hill.

Better schools, small town feel, closer to Charlotte, less crime, home values will appreciate quicker.

I see.

Any idea about the Riverview Elementary School? How is the area near by? (Harris and 21 junction) Would there be a good area to raise kids?

Thank you

We live at that intersection (Walden Park), raising two kids, and like it very much. Many school aged kids in the neighborhood attend Riverview and all I've heard is positive about it. The area around it has some very poor quality housing (the homes on the side streets directly across from the school are downright terrible), but we've never had any issues. With all the new developments going in around the existing homes you're bound to mix good with not so good as far as housing stock.

It's about 2 1/2 years old. Brentwood Homes was the original developer and builder. About a year ago they stopped building outside of their home base in Charleston because of the downturn in the market. Ryan homes stepped in about a month ago and purchased some of the lots and is beginning to build a model home.

We love the neighborhood and the location is excellent. Just about everything we need is less than a few miles from home (school, library, Y, grocery) and only a couple miles from I-77. Uptown Charlotte is about 20 minutes without traffic. Real good mix of people. Many school aged kids. Very low turnover in homes. The only downside has been the uncertainty over the builder situation. Although the fact that a nationally recognized builder has stepped in to buy lots is a good sign of the value of the neighborhood and the potential they see when the housing market bounces back.

from my look to buy a house as well as sell my father's house and looking at the tax value of my parent's home, the difference is that the people who live in York County and work in Charlotte, want to get to work quick and home quick.
I'm looking for an under $50,000 home and I'm having to go to Rock Hill to find any that low.
My mother's 3/4 acre lot in Rock Hill is valued $40,000 less than the same size lot of my father, and his is 2.5 miles from I-77 and 12 minutes from downtown Charlotte. The house next to my father's was for sale. I talked to the people that bought it and the lady said her husband really did not like the house or the price, but took it because of it's location. Yes, land and home values in Fort Mill are alot higher.
