The Palisades- A Terry’s Top Ten Community

March 15th, 2010 Listed Under: Charlotte Homes for Sale, Community Reports, Terrys Top Ten Communities

The Palisades in Charlotte- an Amenity Rich, Green, Golf Community at Lake Wylie

The Palisades is a resort style community just 20 miles and 30 minutes to uptown, and has been on my Terry’s Top Ten Communities for Charlotte since 2005. Thankfully, they installed the amenities before this recession hit, and they have enough homeowners for a viable community. However, they have a few large problems areas, and there is a new team coming to address the problems and start anew.

Speaking of amenities- A Private Golf club, an exceptional Tennis program featuring Tim Wilkinson, a stunning swim center, a beautiful clubhouse, Charlotte’s only Boat club-the Carolina’s Boat Club, miles of walking trails, horse trails, creeks and the rolling hills and wooded lots

Like many communities, it has been hit hard by the economic recession. But parts of the Palisades are rebounding, and others are just adjusting to a new price reality.

In the under $500,000 market, sales improved nearly 100% over 2008, with only a fractional- under 2%- decrease in average cost per square foot from 2008 levels. Homes in the Palisades  sell at a small square foot premium over other similar homes in zip code 28278 at $102 per sf, however the Palisades median price of $389,985 is considerably higher than the 28278 median of $284,803.

Sales in the last 6 months of 2009 in the over $500, 000 category were off by 50%, but prices increased over 2008 by almost 9% to an average of $148 per square foot.

Much of what is left in Ashton Oaks is in foreclosure;  2 on the MLS today and our listing on Grand Palisades is a short sale.  There are deals here.
