Matthews is the rare suburb that has a small town feel but offers all of the important shopping, dining and entertainment. About 35 minutes from uptown,there is Rapid Bus Transit to The Bank of America building daily.

A few thoughts about the market– generally Matthews has a very low absorption rate- contrary to some local “doom and gloomers” and while it has a lot of selection- like everywhere it is a strong buyers market, the homes do sell and remain comparatively undervalued to its more expensive further out neighbors. You may search the MLS for Matthews homes at any time by clicking the Red House, when asked City- find Matthews.

Fun things to do abound in Matthews: the Siskey YMCA is only a few minutes away offering an indoor pool, several indoor basketball courts, an extensive free-weights room, an extensive treadmill and weight machine room, many different types of exercise classes and a large outdoor water park. For those more interested in a tasty meal than a treadmill try the oysters at Vinnie’s in downtown Matthews. Then if you are there on a summer Saturday night walk over to Stumptown for Movies In The Park.
