This 7-year-old home has a wraparound porch on the outside and an open floor plan inside, Tamela Jolly, broker for Re/Max A One Real Estate. The open design gives it "a great flow" with lots of natural light, she says.
It has three bedrooms, a bonus room, 2 1/2 baths and about 2,100 square feet, she says. And the home sits on just less than a quarter acre in Dallas, N.C. -- about 25 miles west of Charlotte.
The kitchen has hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, an island and a breakfast area. The formal dining room has a large window, hardwood floors and picture molding. "It's got all the components that a first-time homebuyer would like," she says.
And this home is typical of what the money will buy in the areas outside of Charlotte, Jolly says. In the suburbs, buyers can get two- and three-bedroom two-story homes, she says. "If you start looking at ranches, (prices) go up because the footprint is larger."
