Return on Investment High Near Lake Wylie

This week the Charlotte Business Journal published their rankings for the zip codes that had the best return on investment over a 10 year period. They used data compiled by Zillow Group ranging from the middle of the recession 10 years ago until this August. The methodology took the median home price from ten years ago assuming a 10% down payment. They compared to the same figures for this year to determine the change.

Sometimes it’s hard to think of your home as an investment, but you never want to think that it’s not a good one. Luckily homes around Lake Wylie fared well in the reporting.
