Homes in the lower price points are still flying off the market. This home in Cornelius, listed at $249,900, went under contract the same day it was listed. The listing agent, Clark Goff of Allen Tate Davidson/Lake Norman stated, “My client was thrilled. A quick sale fit her needs perfectly.”
While homes in this price point frequently make it to the market in adjoining towns, people looking for this price point in Cornelius need to be ready to pounce. Clark Goff commented, “We prepare our buyer clients by making sure they are pre-qualified for a mortgage and we prepare them for multiple offer situations.”
Looking for a home for less than $250k with 3 or more bedrooms, you have 3 to choose from in Cornelius. When affordable homes go on the market they sell quickly. In the last 6 months homes in Cornelius under $250k went under contract in an average of 16 days and sold at over 99% of asking price.
It would be nice if our public servants, the police, firemen and teachers, could afford to live in town. As more and more people migrate to the Lake Norman area we’ll continue to see pressure on the housing supply.
Goff stated ” Bring me a home under $300k in one of these neighborhoods and I can often get it sold without showing it, without repairs or painting in days. Pretty amazing.”
Cornelius, NC After soccer at Richard Barry Memorial Park in Huntersville we were looking for a dog-friendly place to grab some dinner on the way home. We decided to check out the outdoor seating at Crafty Burg’r in Antiquity in Cornelius. We recalled seeing friendly dog water bowls outside and saw that as an invitation.
It was surprisingly happening on a Friday night. They had a two-piece band jamming in the corner and a solid crowd. We sat outside and enjoyed an adult beverage while we checked out the menu.
We both selected the “Garlic Bacon Burg’r” described as follows:
“This Vampire killer is topped with bacon, avocado, red onions and our homemade garlic aioli.”
Who could resist? Burg’rs come with 2 sides. I chose onion rings and a warm bean side dish which is like baked beans but better. My son ordered the chicken fingers and fries and got a side of mac-n-cheese from his mom.
The food was really good. The burgers challenge to be named one of the best around. Sides were great. Our puppy was happy to chill under the table. I definitely recommend Friday night at the Crafty Burg’r.
Cornelius, NC We drove up to Emerald Hollow Mine in Hiddenite last weekend for some sluicing. We were on the hunt for big gems. They have quite the set-up and can handle a bunch of amateur hunters. If you are serious you can go dig your own dirt or dig in the creek, but we decided to purchase one of the pre-filled buckets of dirt and possible treasure.
It is a 45 minute drive from Cornelius up I77 then over on I40. You’ll pass a cool looking restaurant called Yellow Deli which looks good and was packed if you want food.
We washed a bunch of gems from our bucket; amazonite, sodalite, quartz, emerald, sapphire….
I really recommend a trip there with the kids. We bought our mining permits and a “super” bucket for $30. Pick a nice day and go.
