Union County Homes & Real Estate For Sale

South of Charlotte and on the border of South Carolina lay Union County, home to many of the well maintained suburbs in the region. At the turn of the 20th century, Union County was not unlike any other Southern historically rural area with developing industry located near rail transportation in growing manufacturing centers. Union County’s biggest city, Monroe, was home to local families such as the Helms, Starnes, McRorie & Belk families who made their fortune in the textile industry of the 19th and 20th centuries.

In the late 1980’s, the area was rediscovered as an attractive alternative to the downtown ‘urban renewal’ plans that were popular at the time. With the completion of I-485, young families recognized the potential of the area and started a growth movement that is still being seen today. Areas like Waxhaw, Marvin, Hemby Ridge & Weddington, once small farming communities, are now the ‘it’ spot for young couples looking for the ideal mix of urban/suburban living, in a great area to raise children. With Uptown Charlotte about 10 miles away and I-485 creating access to the rest of the state, Union County is a key growth area for Charlotte and Mecklenburg County as a whole.
