 In All About Houses, Charlotte Real Estate

Real Estate search and property information giant Property Shark recently released results from a study that shows how much square footage you’ll get for $200,000 anywhere in the country. Location is the name of the game when it comes to buying a home but the two other biggest factors are (and always will be) price and size.

The results of the study are almost staggering when you consider that you can 13 times more house in Charlotte than you can in Manhattan… for the same amount of money.

West Coast cities like San Francisco and Seattle saw double digit percentage increases in their home prices last year despite not being able to buy as much home as other cities. It’s no wonder places like Charlotte are routinely featured on lists of most affordable places to live or fastest growing cities!
