#58 – Concord NC Real Estate Pros & Cons

Concord North Carolina has all you could ever want as a homeowner. Learn about the perks of living in Concord and current market conditions with Charlotte’s #1 Realtor, Andy Griesinger. You can also watch and share this video on YouTube and Facebook.

Intro: Living in Concord NC

One of the major perks that draws people to Concord is the fact that it’s situated in Cabarrus County versus Mecklenburg County, which boasts numerous benefits.

Concord is also a much newer part of Charlotte so most housing opportunities you’re going to find here are going to either be newer homes in great communities, or older homes on mature streets with no HOA to worry about.

And as we all know, as the housing grows the retail and commercial follow, meaning that Concord has absolutely exploded with fun things to do over the last few years.

Exploring Concord NC

In today’s video, we’re going to go through a really popular part of town situated just outside of Mecklenburg County.

Concord draws a lot of people because of its fun activities. You’ve got Charlotte Motor Speedway and Concord Mills Mall, which is massive. For my golf fans, you’ve got Rocky River and Skybrook Golf Club. There’s also a cool downtown here with a lot of new restaurants and shops, and a ton of housing opportunity here!

Homes in Christenbury Hall, Concord NC

The first place we stop in the video is a neighborhood called Christenbury Hall, a gated luxury community that has got a super tight-knit feel with an excellent location, just a few minutes from Concord Mills Mall, which is a huge draw to the area.

Currently there are two houses for sale in this neighborhood, both around $1.3 million, and both big houses with a little over 5,000 sq.ft.

There were 11 sales in Christenbury Hall last year ranging from $750k to around $2.5M, and the thing that you’ll find interesting about this neighborhood is that compared to the average home in Concord, which is around $365k, the average sale price in this neighborhood is around $930k. Compared to what you’re getting in most of Concord, this is going to be a very different type of neighborhood than the rest of this part of town.

Cabarrus County vs Mecklenburg County

A big reason why people like Concord is because a lot of it is situated in Cabarrus County and not Mecklenburg County, which offers a lot of pros — a big one for families being Cabarrus County’s fantastic schools.

Homes in Heritage Ridge, Concord NC

The next neighborhood we visit in this video is called Heritage Ridge, a new construction community by D.R. Horton. We’re stopping here to show you that there are still a lot of new construction options in Concord, with the average price per square foot sitting right right around $200, which means you’re getting a lot of house for your money here.

Plus, homes in Heritage Ridge are situated right between 85 and 77, so when you need to get Uptown or to the lake, or really anywhere in Charlotte, it’s easy to get to either of these major interstates.

Proximity to Kannapolis

Whether you’re looking for a home to live in, or you’re an investor, one place to definitely keep your eyes peeled for is Kannapolis, which is pretty much right down the street from where we are right now in Concord. Kannapolis is a great place to invest because it hasn’t gotten completely saturated like a lot of the markets in Charlotte.

Homes in Hallstead, Concord NC

The last neighborhood we visit is Hallstead, a neighborhood that’s becoming very popular because the average price for a home here is $335k with an average size of around 2,000 sq.ft. Last year homes in this neighborhood showed a 38% increase in value, which is fairly massive. Here in Hallstead you’ve got a mix of first time home buyers and hedge funds purchasing these homes as their perfect opportunity to get into the Charlotte market.

To HOA or Not To HOA

A lot of these neighborhoods in Concord are newer, and because of that, they have HOAs. However if you’re someone who doesn’t want to live in a neighborhood that has an HOA some options for you are:

  • Whispering Pines
  • Hillside
  • Meadowbrook

Lots & Land in Concord NC

The last thing to mention about Concord is that there are still a lot of tracks of land available and builders are coming in hot.
