Summer selling season is in high gear, and if you’re like most Charlotte buyers, you’ll probably be guided by two main factors: price and neighborhood.
We’re helping you get a sense of your options and acting as your real estate guide. This is part 3 of 4, with homes in ranging from $301,000 to $400,000.*
That’s more than the median sale price in Mecklenburg County ($234,000 in June), so this is usually when options start to get fun if you’ve got a bigger budget. Or if you’re like me and dream that your budget will get this big one day.

This might be a big budget, but it’s still slim pickings in Charlotte’s most prestigious neighborhood. You’ll be hunting for a condo/townhome unless you can find a small/run down fixer upper on the neighborhood’s outskirts.
389,000 — 2310 Roswell Ave., Apt. G
2 beds, 3 baths apartment (1,520 square feet)
This is the price range it takes to start having more options in this trendy neighborhood. (We’re including nearby areas such as Optimist Park). Take this Villa Heights bungalow.
$399,900 — 1815 Harrill Street
3 beds, 3 bath (1,858 square feet)
You’ll have lots of options for a family home here. If you want to stick closer to the lower end of this range, check out a family home in Huntingtowne Farms.
$325,000 — 3000 Burnt Mill Road
4 beds, 3 baths (2,129 square feet)
Have no fear, if this is your budget, you can find a big, family home in this southern suburb.
$389,000 — 15914 Wayland Drive
4 beds, 3 baths (3,246 square feet)
Mountain Island Lake
Want to live in a lake community but can’t quite afford those Lake Norman prices? At this price range, meet your match.
$350,000 — 4034 Nicole Eileen Lane
4 beds, 2.5 baths (2,964 square feet)
You’ve got plenty of options in this price range — and you certainly don’t have to go to the top of this range to get a beautiful family home.
$324,900 — 11231 Tradition View Drive
5 beds, 5 baths (3,116 square feet)
We’ve finally arrived at the SouthPark price range where you’ll be able to afford a house. It might be smaller or a fixer upper. If you want to be very nearby, but not in SouthPark proper, try Beverly Woods or Madison Park.
$399,000 — 3900 Selwyn Avenue
3 beds, 2 baths (1,982 square feet)
Same as the above, you might be looking for a smaller house at this budget, but you’ll no longer be constrained by your budget to only condos to get in this neighborhood.
$343,000 — 1815 Truman Road
3 beds, 2 baths (1,440 square feet)
You’ll have a good selection in this price range — even a house that’s walkable to downtown Matthews like this one.
$349,900 — 413 Matthews Estate Road
5 beds, 3 baths (3,243 square feet)
You’ve almost got too many options in this price range if you want to live in Fort Mill. You’ll probably narrow your choice between a more established neighborhood or new construction.
$329,990 — 1063 Crescent Moon Drive
3 beds, 2.5 baths (2,387 square feet)
Another suburb where you’ll have a lot of options in this price range. This is also the range where you can get pretty darn close to the lake.
$312,900 — 15903 Kelly Park Circle
4 beds, 3 baths (2,289 square feet)
