20 signs of a great neighborhoodA great neighborhood sells a home, real estate agents say. It also helps your home hold value and makes it easy to sell when you decide to move on.

With all the pressure and excitement of home shopping, how can you know if a neighborhood is truly great?

Here are 20 Signs of Great Neighborhood from Credit.com.

As I read this list, I thought of all the great things in the neighborhoods we build homes in. But, especially, our homes in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood. 

From the list, look at these highlights:

#3 – You Can Get a Latte – Coffee shops are within walking distance. Some creative local ones, too, like the Common Market.

#6 – People Are on the Streets – Sidewalks everywhere and your neighbors are out.

#12 – It Will Work for You for 5-7 Years – You may never want to move again. Many long term neighbors as this is one of Charlotte’s most historic neighborhoods.

#16 – Commute is Not Bad – You can be in uptown Charlotte in less than 10 min! How is that for a commute.

#18 – Plenty of Churches – Churches add to the community and there are several right in the neighborhood.

Read the entire list of the 20 Signs of a Great Neighborhood here.

Evans Coghill has a brand new home available in Plaza Midwood now. 4 Bedrooms with master bedroom on the main level and a wrap around front porch. Read more about it here. This home will be open for Parade of Homes Charlotte beginning April 25, 2014.

Two new more homes are coming in May from Evans Coghill in Plaza Midwood.
