There is no doubt that the population of Charlotte, NC has been growing fast over the past few years. The growth in population has led to a rapid development of industries such as the food, services and housing sectors. At present the Charlotte area is estimated to be home to at least 800,000 residents. The Charlotte real estate industry in particular has been doing extremely well compared to other areas nationally. Just recently, a study by the Urban Land Institute and PWC found that Charlotte is the third most attractive real estate market in the United States.
The huge attraction to the area’s real estate market can be attributed to the housing demand boosted by the fortunes of the financial industry. The demand for housing in Charlotte remains strong with many new developments coming up. For someone looking for a property in the area, there is a rich variety of options to choose from. The area has some extremely attractive neighborhoods in gated communities that offer residents the charm of a small town yet they are within a few minutes drive to downtown Charlotte. Most of the neighborhoods along the Interstate-485 have been developed in wooded areas and come with attractive amenities. A unique and attractive feature of most properties in Charlotte is that the houses sit on large lots with plenty of trees and flowers. The developments come with shared amenities such as swimming pools and a play ground. Unlike other areas that do not make it mandatory to have a variety of amenities, Charlotte has by-laws that compel developers to include certain amenities. You will be pleased to find well manicured walking lanes, tennis courts and club houses. If you live in the area, you have no excuse if you do not exercise.

Any visitor to the area will be struck by the presence of many trees everywhere. The impressive forest cover is a result of the efforts made through a project run jointly by the residents and the city managers to plant at least 15,000 trees per year. The aim of the project is to ensure that in a few years time, the area will have a tree cover of about 50%.
