There are several towns or bordering areas that some feel are an extension of the greater South Charlotte area. Over the years these towns / areas have increased in value because of the dynamic growth in South Charlotte and directly because of Ballantyne itself.
Over the years I have also sold homes in these areas as an extension of the South Charlotte Ballantyne Marketing area.
As a experienced realtor who use to watch the farmer cross his cows across a very rural Pineville Matthews Road when we moved here in 1978. I know its roots in farming and textiles. Over the years given its location to Ballantyne and expanding growth Pineville has become very desirable with new communities offering homes for sale, Carolina Place Mall, multiple shopping destinations and the expansive Atrium Hospital.
Today Pineville is on the realtor relocation map more and more because of the number of new communities and houses for sale.
FYI in 1978 when we relocated to Charlotte our first home was across the street from where Atrium Hospital is and backed up to Carolina Place Mall. Back then that was all cow farms.
Another town with connections to the South Charlotte Ballantyne area is Matthews. This larger township boasts a walk, talk, shop and dine main street with a country feel. There are several shopping centers and a selection of communities throughout the area. The town boasts a well attended Matthews Alive Festival and Farmers Market.
Matthews is also home to Novant Hospital and adjoining medical facilities.
Like other communities it is also on the realtor relocation map and has a good assortment of houses for sale.
The town of Weddington is also connected to the South Charlotte Ballantyne area. It is just over the Union County border and is linked by both Providence Road and Rea Road. Many residents feel the connection because of its closeness to all the amenities in South Charlotte. Weddington has become a relocation destination and offers a wide range of houses for sale, great communities and excellent schools. As a realtor for 25 years I started selling homes here before many people saw its potential.
Again there are many communities located just minutes away.
Indian Land is an area that is in Lancaster S.C. and is directly south of South Charlotte linking it to Ballantyne. With the economic growth of Ballantyne this area is seeing more shopping, dining, and residential communities and relocation activity. The selection of houses for sale covers a very wide range including estate sized homes to more affordable town home communities. A very popular community is the 55+ Sun City Carolina Lakes. There is even a local expression realtor use for this area calling it SOBA for South of Ballantyne Area.
