Charlotte Active Over 55 Communities

February 24th, 2014 Listed Under: Real Estate, Terrys Top Ten Communities

Active Adult, Over 55 Communities in Charlotte, Lake Norman and South Carolina

golfer_smallMany of the active adult communities (over 55) don’t market themselves that way, so they can be difficult to find. For a long time, Sun City Carolina Lakes, the fantastically successful Del Webb Community in Fort Mill was the only one. (Scroll down to see that one) We can  help you with new or re-sale- it is best to check both. If you contact the Builders directly you are throwing away your best bargaining chip before starting. Please Register to the right, or direct contact me, available on each. The listings that appear here are Live, meaning they are updated daily, so bookmark the page and check back often.

Starting up North, and working our way down,

The Villages at Oak Tree in Mooresville

New and re-sale opportunities here, clubhouse with fitness, walking trails and more in a convenient spot off Brawley School Road (not too far down)

We're sorry, but there’s nothing to display here; MLS data service is not activated for this account.

Baileys Glen in Cornelius

New homes at Baileys Glen–bad timing on this one, but deals abound in a well thought out early stage  community. Searching homes with master on main in Cornelius

In popular Matthews we have a number of Condos, a Senior Center and a fabulous Y. Lets look at a few of those communities:

Polo Club of Weddington (more like Matthews!)

At the entrance to Colonel Beatty Park, Polo Club is 3 minutes to the Siskey YMCA, 7 minutes to Downtown Matthews, and all that offers including a fabulous library, Costco Dilworth Coffee, Beantown and Presbyterian Hospital.  New and a few re-sales

Sun City Carolina Lakes  Fort Mill , nearby Ballantyne Charlotte NC

Five years ago Pulte Corporation announced the coming of Sun City Carolina Lakes,  a Del Webb community about 10 mile south of Ballantyne, on Fort Mill SC. Today, there are many more Adult Communities in NC and SC, and is a fast growing market throughout the region.  They still dominate- the listings below are updated daily, so book mark us and check back often. Also, there are other niche markets we’ll need to talk to you about, particularly on the high end.

We're sorry, but there’s nothing to display here; MLS data service is not activated for this account.

Most “Over 55’s” don’t market themselves this way. There are some tricky legal issues, and many avoid this by having no hard fast rules. But the floorplans, the lifestlye and people living there all suggest an Active Adult community.
