Belle Meade’s proximity to both I-85 and Wilkinson Boulevard make it a great choice for anyone commuting to Charlotte, or who wants easy access to Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.  It’s also convenient to McAdenville, famous for its Christmas lights.  But proximity to amenities comes at less of a price in Gaston County, where taxes are lower than Mecklenburg, despite being just across the river.

While most of the area is a strong seller’s market right now, Belle Meade has some inventory, with 4 homes currently for sale (though 1 is under contract).   Belle Meade & Gaston county both have between 5-6 months of inventory, which suggests a balanced market.  Over the past year, sellers in Belle Meade have only had to come off their price about 3%.

So if you’re looking for a convenient location & small-town charm, give Belle Meade & Belmont a try!
