If you live in an apartment in Mooresville, NC then you have picked a great town to call home.
Mooresville is the sixth best town in North Carolina for offering good schools, friendly neighbors and affordable living to young families, according to a study by the personal finance website NerdWallet.
All of the communities ranked in the top 10 were relatively small ones, led by Waxhaw, Marvin, Holly Springs, Stallings and Indian Trail. Mooresville is followed in the list by Apex, Stokesdale, Morrisville and Etowah.
In choosing Mooresville “as one of the best NC cities for young families,” NerdWallet said:
“While Mooresville earned the nickname ‘Race City USA’ because it is the home of a number of NASCAR teams, the city has also created one of the more dynamic economies in the top 10. It is the corporate headquarters of Lowe’s, and combined with the town’s location only 25 miles north of Charlotte, is one of the fastest-growing financial and business centers in the country.
“As a testament to Mooresville’s success: median family incomes have increased 82% since 1999. Word of the town’s rise has spread, and Mooresville now expects the population to double in the next 20 years. With median home values of $186,500 and a Great Schools rating of 9, much of the town’s expected growth will likely come from young families.”
