The real estate market is hotter than a car with black leather interior in the summertime. Homes are selling themselves practically overnight, but the bigger the price tag, the longer it is likely to linger as a listing. It looks like competition to find a home among multi-millionaires isn’t as stiff. If you plan to pay upwards of a million for your next residence what can you buy if you venture outside of the Charlotte city limits?
In Mint Hill $1,100,000 gets you into an equestrian neighborhood with 4 beds, 4 baths and lots of extras for folks who like to entertain. Wet bars, a built-in gas grill and even a wine closet.https://markspain.com/find-a-home/listing/canopy/3744046/Mint-Hill/4223-Piaffe-Avenue

Cornelius is an obvious choice for water lovers and for $1,649,900 you get views of Lake Norman and in-ground saltwater pool.  You get four bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths. What about your boat?  The home has its own boat slip.https://www.redfin.com/NC/Cornelius/19228-Betty-Stough-Rd-28031/home/43860199
