How Old Are The Homes In Your State? Pretty New In The Carolinas!

How old are the homes in your state? In the Carolinas homes, on average, are quite new, (mostly built since the turn of the current century) as they are thoughout much of the Southeast, Southwest, and Northwest. Obviously a major reason for this stems from the population growth in these parts of the United States over the past couple of decades. North and South Carolina have been among the five "most moved-to" states for well over a decade now--that means lots of newer housing to support this populations growth.
 
 
If you've been searching for affordable "older" homes, especially in the Charlotte metro areas, you may have noticed that it's not easy to find them. The Charlotte metro area has been a "mecca" for new home construction for many years (even with the few years of a market slowdown).
 
 
I speak with prospective home buyers all the time who insist on older homes because for some reason they believe they are "better built." And for the most part, that's not quite the case. New homes today are being built to much tougher code standards, they are much more energy efficient, and they use materials and mechanicals that withstand a lot of "wear and tear."
 
 
So if you're moving to the Charlotte metro area in the Carolinas, don't turn your nose up at newer construction even if it feels as if older homes have more "character." Newer homes are a fact of life here in the Charlotte metro area and a good one, at that!
