					In addition to 65,000 new residents a year, Charlotte is attracting talented home
builders and developers that are creating wonderful neighborhoods in all price ranges
throughout the area. Charlotte's gleaming skyline anchors an eclectic collection of
neighborhoods that stretch from the County, each providing a unique and vibrant
living experience. The area's three lakes, Lake Norman, Mountain Island Lake and
Lake Wylie, appeal to Charlotteans who appreciate the joys of waterfront living.
Many of Charlotte's top builders are creating neighborhoods that showcase the natural
beauty of the lakes, offer a level of privacy and provide resort-like amenities. To the
north of Charlotte, and surrounding Lake Norman, are the towns of Mooresville,
Davidson, Cornelius and Huntersville. Each community is undergoing tremendous
growth thanks to small town charm with easy access to uptown Charlotte. The race to
be the next hot area in Charlotte pits the Western edge of Mecklenburg County, from
Mountain Island Lake south to Lake Wylie, against areas east of Charlotte, like

Mint Hill and its larger lots. Both areas feature expanses of open land mixed with
compact neighborhoods that promote a sense of community. Home to some to the
region's most desirable and established neighborhoods, South Charlotte blends
historic homes and streets with new, visionary developments including luxury
townhomes and custom in-fill homes. The towns of South Park and Ballantyne remain
hot areas for new homes and the area's top retail offerings. Closer in to the city center
are Charlotte's historic neighborhoods. These streetcar suburbs form a crescent around
the city and feature homes ranging from small bungalows to impressive Georgian
mansion, with new construction mixedin throughout. Just as Charlotte's location
offers residents the benefits of both the mountains and the ocean, it also offers the best
of all worlds in weather. This makes the city's weather one of its strongest assets,
attracting visitors and new residents alike. The year is filled with days which invite
you outside to enjoy the clear blue sky and bright sun, the perfect backdrop to
Charlotte's beautifully landscaped neighborhoods, commercial areas, parks and lakes.
The area's climate can best be described as moderate, pleasant and sunny. Forget
about the winter blues of our northern neighbors or the stifling summer heat of our
southern friends. In Charlotte, the weather entices you outside all year. Special
Acknowledgment to the new informative website from the Charlotte Home Builders A great source of information on
Charlotte real estate, and news that home buyers and sellers can use. According to the
United Van Lines 2007 Migration Study of nearly 213,000 moves, North Carolina
