There’s nothing like looking at data to try to discover a trend…I’m not a statistician, but I can look at the Providence High School area real estate market data for the the last 10 years and see that home buyers in Charlotte highly value buying a home for sale in the Providence High School zone of South Charlotte NC. Take a look at my graph below. You will see that home sales near Providence High School in Charlotte averaged a sales price of $339,394 in 2012, just slightly off the sales prices in 2009 – which is when the housing/mortgage crisis really hit the South Charlotte area.

While most areas in Charlotte marked a continued decline in sales prices each year since the peak year of 2007, the Providence High School area real estate market remained relatively strong.
