Lake Norman Real Estate: First-Time Home Buyers are Welcome!

Lake Norman area First-time-buyer communitiesIf you read my article about the schizophrenic nature of the towns along the east side of Lake Norman, then you will already know that the east side of the Interstate 77 is where you will find the original Main Streets and older homes. These areas have also experienced significant growth but because they were mostly farmland and are a fair distance to Lake Norman, the housing growth has focused on more moderately priced homes.

In Mooresville, three of the most popular subdivisions where prices are in the $100,000’s – $200,000s are Curtis Pond, Kistler Mill and Linwood Farms. All three of these housing developments are within the city limits of Mooresville so enjoy their excellent schools, and city services like water and sewer.

Curtis Pond in Mooresville Lake NormanCurtis Pond is a very popular, large subdivision offering new and resale homes from as low as $128,900 to their new basement homes at $279,900 with an average sale this past spring of $206,405. The homes range in size from about 1000 square feet to 3200 square feet. Most streets have sidewalks on one side making them perfect for walking and visiting with neighbors. Almost any time of day you will see children playing, neighbors chatting on their front porches or taking a walk to one of their two pools. (There was a bit of a fuss about which neighbors got to use the original pool but the second pool area is nearing completion. If you are considering a home in Curtis Pond make sure that you completely understand what rights you have to the pools!)

 

Mooresville Lake Norman homeRight across the street from Curtis Pond is Kistler Mill, which is their sister development. Smaller and completely built out, Kistler Mill (see picture on the left) offers homes from the $100,000’s to the low to mid $200,000s. They too have sidewalks and enjoy a neighborly environment.

Linwood Farms is a Ryland community located just out from Historic Downtown Mooresville. Smaller and a bit cozier in feel, there are homes currently for sale from $167,500 – $298,000 that range in size from 1200 square feet to about 3400 square feet. Like Curtis Pond and Kistler Mill, they offer mostly two-story homes. Community amenities include a pool, playground and club house.

These are just a few of our many subdivisions in this great price range!

Added 9/14/08: Harris Crossing is a brand new, smaller subdivision in the same area of Mooresville with homes starting in the high $180,000’s.
