Basement Homes for Sale in South Charlotte, NC

Looking for a home for sale with a basement in South Charlotte, NC?  Well, join the crowd in searching for a small niche of homes with a basement.  You see, the hard, red clay soil of NC makes basement homes more of a rarity in Charlotte.  Builders and developers utilized the hilly topography of South Charlotte to build homes with basements  - these homes are built into the hill and therefore have a "walkout" or "daylight" basement.  You'll find a few "cellar" basements in the older neighborhoods of Charlotte, such as Myers Park, Dilworth and Elizabeth.

But I want a home with a basement!!!  I've heard this same wish from many of my buyer clients who are relocating to Charlotte from areas where basement homes are the norm, such as the Northeast and Midwest.  Basement homes can be awesome, as they add lots of extra space for a rec room, media center, exercise room, storage or even a second living quarters complete with a kitchen, bedroom(s) and bathrooms.  The possibilities are endless!

typically carry a higher price tag than homes without basements, for obvious reasons.  During 2012, sales of basement homes in South Charlotte totaled 252 homes, ranging in price from just $45,000 to over $2 million.  The average sales price for a basement home was $491,965 ($125/SF); the median sales price for a basement home was $390,000 ($111/SF).  Just remember...appraisers typically give less value to basement square footage than above-grade square footage.

Melissa  In my area I would probably write a post about "homes with no basement"  :)

Melissa,  We don't see many homes with basements in my area.  Those that have them were built a long time ago.  It's just not the norm for newer construction.  I'd like to have a finished basement.

Hi Karen!  When I lived in your area, we had a basement; seemed like everyone did.  When ours flooded, I vowed to never have a basement again.  Now, I wish we had one!

Hi Kathleen - no I wouldn't imagine that San Jose would have many basements.  Especially with teenagers now, I'd like to have a finished basement!
