| Comments Off on Finally New, Larger Home Sites in Baxter Village
The newest phase of Baxter Village has some great home sites and they are much larger. Some of the new home sites are 5 times the size of the typical Baxter home sites! All the home sites include lots of natural trees and are located within a short walk of the Catawba River.
Renown columnist, Allen Norwood, recently published an article in The Charlotte Observer about the new phase and its significance.
Baxter Village is known for its great neighborhood appeal, well planned architecture, and now for large home sites.

| Comments Off on Lower Property Taxes Just Make Cents
A lot of homeowners consider moving to South Carolina for lower property taxes. In fact, not only do they consider South Carolina, they consider Fort Mill, SC. Not only do they consider Fort Mill, but Baxter Village. Why? Because in Baxter Village, property taxes are 45% less than they are in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina (just about 6 miles up the road). The average sale price for a new home in Baxter Village is approximately $432,000. With the Homestead Exemption, that equates to a property tax bill of approximately $2,700 per year vs. $5,600 in Mecklenburg County. That’s about $241 per month which equals $40,000 more value in a home.
Think about that. By simply moving into Baxter Village you can get $40,000 more home for the same money. That’s a whole bedroom and bathroom! A bonus room, office, guest suite or living room!!
Or, it’s a savings that if put into an account earning a minimum of 5% per year for the life of the mortgage (30 years), would equal approximately $201,651.06!! Wow! Not bad for a short move.
In today’s housing market, I’ve found that people not only want value, they want savings. They want a lower price with lower expenses with a higher quality of life. Now I know why Baxter is not only a great place to live, but a smart place to live.

Riverwalk is a neighborhood you might not have heard of yet. You will. It is an amazing tract of land that runs along the Catawba River in Rock Hill, SC. To explain all of the plans would take several blogs and we will get to that later. The good news is the public park section of Riverwalk opened this week and you can go and enjoy it now. It is incredible!
A Whole New View of the River in The Charlotte Observer gives more details on this new park. It is located on Hwy 21 where it crosses the Catawba River. The Charlotte Observer had a follow up article Riverwalk Lets You Enjoy the Catawba.
Evans Coghill Homes will be offering new homes in this great neighborhood in mid-2011. Let us know if you want information on our homes and pre-opening incentives.
Directions to Riverwalk Park: From Charlotte, take I-77 south. Exit at Cherry Rd and go north towards Ft Mill. Turn right on Dunkins Ferry Rd just before the US 21 Bridge over the Catawba River. Take the first left onto Terrace Park Rd. Follow the road to a 30-spot parking lot near the trail head.
