I went to a housewarming party last weekend with dozens of other 20- and 30-somethings and found several couples had recently bought homes in Fort Mill to get more bang for their buck.
With home values continuing to surge in Charlotte, it’s no surprise people are heading for the ‘burbs.
And Fort Mill is a sound choice.
It has some of the most highly ranked schools in the Charlotte area, according to a Niche.com, and the median home price is around $222,700 with a median income of $71,436, according to the latest U.S. Census.
If you’re ready to make the move, here are our five favorite houses for sale in Fort Mill right now.
