Lake Norman Neighborhoods

Whether you value living near the water, shopping districts, charming downtowns or 18-hole golf courses, you have plenty of options in the Lake Norman area.

We looked at monthly sales data from the Charlotte Regional Realtors Association to determine neighborhoods that sold at least 20 homes this year in the communities of Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson, Mooresville and eastern Lincoln County. Then, we went backwards from the Thanksgiving holiday to see which Lake Norman neighborhoods sold 20 homes the fastest.

Without further ado, here are the 12 hottest neighborhoods in the Lake Norman area:Looking for a Lake Norman waterfront short sale or foreclosure home for sale? Find it here.
