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 2 of 4, with homes in ranging from $201,000 to $300,000.* That’s the most common range for sales in Mecklenburg County — the median home sale in June was $234,000, according to the Charlotte Regional Realtor Association.

Even at a slightly higher price, you’ll be looking for a condo in this upscale neighborhood if this is your budget.
$239,000 — 2810 Selwyn Ave., Unit 314
1 bed, 1 bath condo (750 square feet)
Just like Myers Park, you’ll be looking for a condo if you want to be in NoDa proper in this price range. Even this unit that’s available is outside the core of what’s considered NoDa.
$223,500 — 2338 Yadkin Ave., #202
2 bed, 2 bath condo (1,174 square feet)
You won’t be able to buy a golf course-adjacent house for this price, but the area is far enough out that you should be able to afford a family home with this budget.
$285,000 — 6121 Kingstree Drive
4 bed, 2.5 bath house (2,046 square feet)
If you’re house hunting in Charlotte’s southernmost suburb, you’ll be able to find a well-appointed townhome or an average-size family home in this range.
$275,000 — 11841 Royal Castle Court
3 bed, 3 baths (2,433 square feet)
Mountain Island Lake
If you want to live in this up-and-coming suburb, you’ll be able to find a nice family home here. (Just don’t expect it to be lakeside.)
$225,000 — 11213 Golden Drive
4 beds, 2.5 baths (2,512 square feet)
Living in the northern suburbs has its perks. You can afford a beautiful, large family home if you have this budget.
$279,900 — 4216 Hubbard Road
4 beds, 3 baths (2,778 square feet)
And we’re back in condo/townhome land if you want to keep it at $300,000 or less in SouthPark proper.
$277,500 — 5425 Closeburn Road
2 beds, 2 baths (1,291 square feet)
You’re still very limited in this price range in Plaza Midwood — it’s not that big of a neighborhood, after all. Travel next door to Belmont and you can find some options like this cute (but small) craftsman home.
$290,000 — 817 E. 20th St.
2 beds, 2 baths (1,150 square feet)
Another family-friendly suburb, another town that will give you oodles of options for a great home. You’ll also have your pick of neighborhoods within the town.
$279,900 — 2500 Crescent Knoll Drive
4 beds, 3 baths (2,334 square feet)
In this price range, you’ll have your choice of an established neighborhood or a brand new home. Your hardest decision will be where in the town to call home and snapping up the property when it comes available since prime locations go quickly.
$274,900 — 2031 Lakebridge Drive
4 beds, 2.5 baths (2,173 square feet)
You’ve got some good options in this northern suburb. You can even get close to the lake if you’re willing to go small on square footage.
$244,500 — 8606 Cedar Hollow Lane
4 beds, 2.5 baths (2,532 square feet)
