It’s so much fun to fantasize about living in a massive, expensive home. If you’re anything like me you love HGTV and the bigger the budget the better. I have no desire to watch the $120,000 budget episodes. If it’s not at the very least $500,000 I’m just not interested. Not that I can afford them but hey a girl can dream.

And living in Charlotte there are tons of luxury homes all around. So I did a quick search by the most expensive on Realtor.com just to see what’s out there (and spend hours looking at the pictures). But you don’t have to do the research, I’ve compiled a list of the 17 most expensive homes on the market in Charlotte. This is as of January 26th as we know things change quickly. Why 17? Well, that’s the number of single-family homes priced at or above $3 million currently for sale. And if we are going big, we are going big. But there are many many more over that $1 million price tag.

The variety of properties is actually pretty good. Some are in Myers Park (no surprise), one near Mint Hill, as well as South Charlotte.  They all have at least three bedrooms in fact one has 7. Most have 6.5 bathrooms as well. You’re looking at lots of space, massive yards, and high-end finishes for the price tag.

While the market is booming currently, the number of people with the budgets for these types of houses isn’t as large as more affordable ones. You don’t have to act quite as fast as you would for other homes in Charlotte. According to Realtor.com, there are currently 1,682 homes for sale in Charlotte (note this is just the city of Charlotte not any of the surrounding towns).

  • Median Listing Home Price: $369.9K
  • Median Listing Home Price/Sq Ft: $203
  • Median Sold Home Price: $362K
