If you want to live in or near Charlotte, or close  to excellent Charlotte Airport, and want to live in an over 55 community, there aren’t a great number of choices. Del Webb pioneered the active adult lifestyle a generation ago, today, Pulte pulls in many of the same resources to deliver quite a community- Sun City Carolina Lakes is still selling new in their 5 th year.

In the summer of 2007, they reduced property taxes statewide so that if you buy a home today, it is roughly .80 /1000, so a $300,000 home has taxes of $2400, +/-, making Sun City Carolina Lakes one of the most affordable active adult communities in the country.

A few months back, re-sales were king, but today, they are literally dropping prices to unheard of levels at the new home center.  And they drop more using a Buyer Agent- I’ve evidence from earlier in the year on this.

Their clubhouse is the center of community activity- it has a large fitness center,
