Fort Mill Home Comes to Market for $3 million. Is that a Record?

Fort Mill has earned a status as one of Charlotte’s top luxury home sub-markets. Affluent living has become available in the Queen City surrounding area, creating a niche market which is supporting Fort Mill’s most expensive home listed to date: at an impressive $3 million. 

How has Fort Mill become such a hot spot for luxury homeowners? The number one reason is nationally recognized schools. According to 2021 Niche’s Best Schools, Fort Mill is the number one best school district in all of South Carolina, with a student teacher ratio of 15 to 1 and standardized test scores in the top 25% of the country. Ohio native Debbie Lais moved to the area with her young children in 2004 and says “The well recognized schools reflect a family oriented community here in Fort Mill.” Other perks of homeownership in Fort Mill include a 20 minute drive to Charlotte, NC, which is one of the largest banking and financial hubs in all of the southeast, and one of the top 5 cities for millennials to move to in the US. Additionally, Fort Mill offers the impressive new development of Kingsley, which has shopping and dining comparable to SouthEnd, along with a classic Main Street with several local businesses and easy access to the Riverwalk and Anne Springs trails. Larger homesites than other Charlotte neighborhoods and proximity to the brand new Panthers training facility are only a few of the added bonuses that Fort Mill residents enjoy.

So what does $3 million in Fort Mill look like?
