Alford Realty Group specializes in real estate the Mooresville and Lake Norman areas. We recently learned that according to a new study by NerdWallet which is a personal finance site that our very own town of Mooresville has been rated the sixth best town in North Carolina to live in. Mooresville has been rated so highly due to its good schools, friendly neighbors and affordable living to young families.
In choosing Mooresville “as one of the best NC cities for young families,” NerdWallet said: “While Mooresville earned the nickname ‘Race City USA’ because it is the home of a number of NASCAR teams, the city has also created one of the more dynamic economies in the top 10. It is the corporate headquarters of Lowe’s, and combined with the town’s location only 25 miles north of Charlotte, is one of the fastest-growing financial and business centers in the country.
“As a testament to Mooresville’s success: median family incomes have increased 82% since 1999. Word of the town’s rise has spread, and Mooresville now expects the population to double in the next 20 years. With median home values of $186,500 and a GreatSchools rating of 9, much of the town’s expected growth will likely come from young families.”
Mooresville has two zip codes 28115 and 28117. A current look at the overall Mooresville real estate picture shows that in the 28115 zip code, the median sales price for a home in February, 2015 was $176,000 with only 5.9 months of inventory for homes. In the 28117 zip code of Mooresville, the median sales price for a home in February of 2015 was $303,588 with 9.0 months of inventory.
