5 Charlotte-Area Towns You Can Still Find A Decent 4 Bed For Under $200k


If you work in Charlotte and need a 4 bedroom home, there are still some great little towns within a 45 minute to 1 hour drive that haven’t yet seen their prices explode like in Fort Mill, Belmont, or Huntersville.

In no particular order, here are 5 Charlotte sleeper towns with currently-available 4 bedroom homes in decent condition for under $200k:

#1 Albemarle

The first town on our list sits at the foot of the Uwharrie Mountains (the oldest mountain range in the US) and is a short drive to Badin Lake and Lake Tillery.

This 4 bed Albemarle house features a wrap-around porch and a large powered workshop out back:

#2 Kings Mountain

Kings Mountain is one of the closest and most “up-and-coming” towns on our list. It’s about 40 minutes to Charlotte on I-85 and has tons of planned development coming thanks to the new Two Kings Casino.

This 4 bed Kings Mountain house is set off on a country road and is on well and septic – it’d make a great off-grid homestead if you think the zombies are coming anytime soon:

#3 Salisbury

You can get a little more bang for your buck in Salisbury, with the price-per-square-foot range one of the lowest on this list.

This nice 4 bedroom Salisbury house recently dropped in price from $185k down to $179k:

#4 Lancaster

The town of Lancaster sits just below the booming regions of Waxhaw and Rock Hill and features a quaint downtown and a ton of annual festivals and events.

This 4 bed Lancaster home isn’t technically under $200k, but it’s the only 2,000+ square feet house on the list:

#5 Chester

Another great South Carolina option is just south west of Rock Hill off I-77. It takes about an hour flat (with decent traffic flow) to drive from Downtown Chester to Uptown Charlotte.

This modern 4 bed Chester home is near the heart of the town, so you’ll be close to some quaint shops and restaurants:
