University City Living
The vibrant “city within a city” known as University City in Charlotte is located in the northeast region of our beautiful community. It surrounds the state’s fifth-largest university, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
The Charlotte University area real estate market has a number of established home communities, such as Highland Creek, Skybrook, Lexington, Radbourne and others (see below). However, with the current shortage of inventory of existing homes, may home buyers are turning to new construction homes for sale to avoid the “bidding wars” for existing homes in the area and are finding the home building process and working with home builders to not be as overwhelming as many believe it to be.
