It's Pretty Inexpensive to Live in Mooresville, NC

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 22, 2018

Abberly Green Apartments in MooresvilleFor those of us who live in the Charlotte metro area, we're accustomed to paying a little more for the privilege of calling the Queen City region home. Mooresville, however, is one of the cheapest places to live in the Charlotte metro region, according to a new study by the Economic Policy Institute.

The institute recently released its 2018 family budget calculator that estimates how costly it is to live in each of America's 3,142 counties and 611 metro areas.

The Charlotte metropolitan area ranks as one of the most expensive places to live in the Tar Heel state, according to the institute. Perhaps unsurprisingly, living in Charlotte is more pricey than Asheville and the Raleigh metro areas.

When it comes to living in Iredell County, however, the findings are different.

The institute estimates that a family of two adults and two children in Iredell Couny would need to earn a combined $83,862 per year — or $6,988 a month — to live comfortably.

Here's how that money gets spent:

  • Housing: $828 per month
  • Food: $749 per month
  • Child Care: $1,116 per month
  • Transportation: $1,224 per month
  • Health Care: $1,427 per month
  • Other Necessities: $636 per month
  • Taxes: $1,009 per month

Economic Policy Institute estimates that a family of two adults and two children in Charlotte would need to earn a combined $89,330 per year — or $7,444 a month — to live comfortably.

The family budget calculator accounts for geographic differences in cost of living, but does not include many expenses associated with a middle-class lifestyle, including student loan payments or saving for college or retirement.

"Our Family Budget Calculator goes beyond traditional measures like the poverty line to paint a detailed picture of what families need to get by," EPI Senior Economist Elise Gould stated. "The latest update provides even greater detail on how costs vary throughout the country. It is above all else a tool for policymakers to advocate for ways to raise wages and make their communities more affordable."

Mooresville, NC: One of the Best Suburbs Around Charlotte

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 15, 2018

Abberly Green Apartments in MooresvilleThe people in Charlotte’s suburbs turn elections, create traffic, and feed large employers. They surround our lakes and brighten up old railroad tracks. And they’re resilient. Over the past quarter-century, the towns around our city have moved on from tobacco and textiles to forge their own identities, distinct from one another.

There’s no such thing as an ordinary Charlotte suburb. There are lake suburbs, small-town suburbs and suburbs where people identify themselves by which highway exit number is closest to their house. Some places feel like they’re extensions of Charlotte; others feel like they’re in another world.

We asked a researcher to develop a formula to tell us which towns around Charlotte are, definitively, the best. We started with four main categories—Housing and Employment, Quality of Life, Diversity and Vitality, and School Outcomes—and pulled together a series of statistics for each. We examined the towns based on how they fared against the other suburbs in the region in each category. Then we averaged the four broader categories to determine the overall ranking. Click here for the full chart.

But statistics tell only part of the story, so the stories that follow are dedicated not just to the numbers, but also to the people who make up the top 12 suburbs that define our region.

2. Mooresville

Race shops such as JR Motorsports and Penske Racinghelped Mooresville earn the title of Race City USA, but now the most familiar engines in town are those attached to bulldozers, dump trucks, and crane operators.

The most visible example of the construction boom here is LangTree at Lake Norman. The $1.5 billion mixed-use development rose up from a once-vacant lot along I-77, letting passing motorists know big things are happening here.

Elsewhere in town, the race is on to complete several development projects, including a 476-acre industrial park, a new Allied Health Sciences Building at Mitchell Community College and the transformation of a former cotton mill, Burlington Mills, into a mixed-use development. Aliño Pizzeria is one of the most popular tenants; on weekends, expect to wait in line for a scratch-made Neapolitan pizza.

“We didn’t want to be just a bedroom community of Charlotte,” says Jessica Stewart of the Mooresville-South Iredell Economic Development Corporation. “We had bigger aspirations.”

Since 2014, Mooresville has announced more than $181 billion in new community investments, including 1.5 million square feet in new commercial construction and the addition of 1,091 local jobs. Last year, the Urban Land Institute released a report estimating that the population of Mooresville would increase 58 percent by 2030, driving the number of residents to more than 55,000. The population was a little more than 19,000 in 2000. To accommodate the explosive growth, commissioners endorsed plans to add a new I-77 overpass last fall.

National companies like Lowe’s and MacLean-Fogg helped establish Mooresville as a great place to do business. Smaller companies are also moving here. Four of the most recent renters at LangTree on Lake Norman are local businesses: Hampton Men’s Clothing, Lake Norman Cigar Company, Vinyasa Arts LKN, and Barakah Mediterranean Café and Creamery.

After struggling to compete with big box retailers and chain restaurants along the I-77 corridor in Mooresville, historic downtown is making a comeback as a destination.

“Our downtown was long described as a place with ‘good bones’ and ‘potential,’” mayor Miles Atkins says. “Now that people want more urbanized environments, downtown is back on their radar.”

A number of new businesses have opened (or are in the process of opening) in the historic downtown core, including a new brewpub. Monthly food truck rallies are held on Main Street, and construction on a new $43 million mixed-use development on Church Street, with first-floor retail and three stories of apartments (a total of 202 units) is underway. The historic mill village—the largest intact mill village in the nation—is also undergoing a renaissance as new owners renovate and rehabilitate the homes.

Good to Know

In 2015, national financial website CreditDonkey rated Mooresville the No. 1 place to live in North Carolina based on income, the number of college-educated residents, restaurants per capita, commute time, and the odds of being a victim of violent crime.

Good to Eat

Everything on the menu at Aliño, from the caprese salad and Margherita pizza to the gelato, is pure Italian. Go hungry; the portions are huge. 500 S. Main St., 704-663-0010

Good to Go

The annual Wiener Dog Race is not to be missed. The dashing dachshunds are not only adorable, the October event raises money for local rescue groups.
