Hello Bloggers! Thanks for stopping by again. You know I like to tell you all about real estate happenings “inside stuff” that you’ll never read in the N & O. So today, I’m going to tell you about one of my favorite neighborhoods almost inside the “ Magic Kingdom ”. The “ Magic Kingdom ” is my name for inside the beltline properties. I live there, own property there – so I’m qualified to make a little, light hearted quip about this very “pricy” area of Raleigh real estate.
One day soon I will tell you why these properties have had strong, steady appreciation for the past 20 + years. Right now, suffice it to say, when realtors and locals talk about “Location – Location –Location” this area was the first and remains a constant in our market as “the address”. Since there is only small bits of land available are available in this sought after location – builders/investors have resorted to tear downs and finding properties just “outside’ the beltline that still give many of the “perks” buyers are seeking by living in “Old Raleigh”. Just “outside” the “ Magic Kingdom ” is GlenLake South.
What I love about this neighborhood begins with a very experienced developer and builder. Creedmoor Partners is the developer and Premier Homes together, make a very classy team to build the kind of home and “lifestyle” most of us boomers are seeking. GlenLake gives it out in “spades”. Here are some facts about this incredible neighborhood.
