Whenever I chat with my clients about their home search here in Charlotte, NC, one of their FIRST questions are always, “What are the schools like in this area?” ย It’s a STRONG factor in where they want to live.

School districts are a HUGE deal, and rightfully so! School districts are like the hidden gems in the home search journey. You might think it’s all about the number of bedrooms or the size of the backyard, but let me tell you, the quality of local schools is a game-changer.

And guess what? This isn’t just a worry for parents. People without children are JUST as concerned about the school districts they will eventually live in.ย 

 

Why School Districts Matter, Even if You Don’t Have Kids!

You’re probably wondering, “Why do school districts matter so much if I don’t even have kids?” Well, it’s all about thinking ahead and making a smart investment. Homes in top-notch school districts in Charlotte aren’t just places to live; they’re your ticket to a stable and potentially growing investment.ย 

Strong Home Price Appreciation

The desire for a home that retains or increases in value is universal among homebuyers. In Charlotte, NC, properties located in esteemed school districts have a significant advantage. Regardless of market fluctuations, homes in reputable school districts tend to maintain their worth or appreciate over time. This trend is a vital consideration for anyone looking to make a sound investment in real estate.

Buyers Correlate Good Schools & Safer Neighborhoods

A top-notch school district often goes hand in hand with safer neighborhoods. These areas usually boast well-maintained street lighting, pristine sidewalks, and active neighborhood watch programs. Such amenities not only enhance the living experience but also contribute to the overall safety and appeal of the neighborhood, making it a desirable location for prospective buyers.

I have so many great things Iโ€™d like to share about our experience with The Finigan Group, but here are a few bullet points:- Communication was freaking awesome!- The education they provide is genuinely helpful.- When under contract, Josh really got to work and made sure all went smoothly, and everyone involved did their part.Most people that know my wife and I wellโ€”and Josh can attest to this from our interactions throughout this processโ€”know that she takes the reigns on big decisions. She is far more detail oriented and skeptical which makes her really good at managing big money & life decisions. The pressure was on when she left it up to me to pick a real estate agent as we took the first steps towards our long-time dream of owning a house and moving closer to family in the Charlotte area.I took my assignment seriously; researching many agents for almost a year before I settled. During this time, I ran into The Finigan Group and was immediately impressed by the educational videos regarding all things related to Charlotte housing market and market trends in general. I subscribed, watched most of the episodes, and genuinely learned a lot.I contacted Josh already anticipating that the Finigan group would be a great fit. Both my wife and I were blown away by how on top of everything Josh was. Responsiveness was almost immediate, 100% of the time for any question we had (and questions we didnโ€™t even know we needed to be asking). Josh is very knowledgeable and had good recommendations for other players that would help us in this journey. We encountered a fairly competitive market; with many houses we liked selling within hours and even a bidding war but Josh came up with effective strategies to help us get the best deal on our dream house. Josh also made sure that once we were under contract everyone else (our lender, inspectors, etc) were doing their job in a timely manner.Home buying is such a complex and easily daunting task; Josh and his team made it a lot easier. Buying a houseโ€”especially for us first timersโ€”is scary but the knowledge I gained offset the despair I felt when doom scrolling the plethora of internet content highlighting how difficult is to buy a house in this crazy market. I will be reaching out to the Finigan group when we have any real estate related needs in the future.
Response from the owner: Thank you for your detailed feedback, Amiel. We couldn't be happier to know that you had a great experience dealing with us at The Finigan Group. We're delighted to hear your appreciation towards our commitment to education and communication during the process. We are all about helping our clients and relieving them of the daunting task of buying real estate! It was a pleasure working with you and your wife and we look forward to supporting your future real estate needs.

Josh did a great job selling our home. We had the property listed with a different company for a year and only had 8 showings.

Josh was referred to me by my sister who had used him to help sell her home and purchase a new home. We needed to sell our home quickly. Josh always made time to meet me in person, review my goals, offer suggestions to help increase value. He was educated on the Charlotte housing market and did deep market research for my home. The first day my house was on the market it sold for asking. Could not be happier with Joshโ€™s service and he is now the go to realtor for my whole family.

I closed on my home yesterday thanks to Josh, Katie and the rest of the Finigan Group. My initial sit down with him was informative and to the point, it was made clear where we stood immediately just looking at the data. A plan was made and the process had begun. It was fairly hands off considering the paperwork needed for a home sale. Any paperwork needing to be done was almost exclusively through DocuSign which made the process easy in that everything is made available on your phone or other devices. The viewings process was straight forward as well with the ability to set what times work for you, and the platform used made it simple. Closing was also painless and a breeze. If anyone should ask me who I would recommend for their next hone sale or purchase, there is only one group of people I would recommend, and that would be the Finigan Group. Thank you very much again everyone!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Alex! Such kinds words!!! You were a pleasure to work with! Weโ€™re so happy for you!!! Congrats on all the great adventures to come!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

If you are looking for a top quality Realtor, you should call The Finigan Group. From the moment Josh reached out to me I knew he could sell my home. And let me say, he did it QUICK.I previously had my home on the market with a different firm, for 50 days with only 2 showings. Once Josh met with my wife and I knew he was the real deal. Josh showed charisma, professionalism, aggressive marketing style and provided awesome home photos taken by his in house photographer, Brody. 10 DAYS LATER WE HAVE A CONTRACT. Folks, Josh and team are allstars. There is not another Agent in Charlotte that can compete.Give the Finigan Group a call, you wonโ€™t regret it.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for your wonderful review! Weโ€™re thrilled to hear about your great experience with The Finigan Group. Josh and the team work hard to make sure every client feels taken care of, and weโ€™re so glad that shined through for you.From the moment Josh reached out, it sounds like you knew you were in good hands. Weโ€™re glad the professional photos from Brody and our marketing efforts helped get your home sold so quickly โ€“ 10 days is fantastic!Your kind words mean the world to us. Weโ€™re here whenever you or anyone you know needs real estate help in the future. Thanks again for trusting us with your home sale!Best,

I was introduced by word of mouth to Josh. My initial meeting with him was professional, but very friendly. He was easy to talk to and I was immediately sure he was the realtor I would use. Overall, Josh and Katie were such a pleasure to deal with throughout the process and made themselves available whether I had a question or just needed advice. It wasn't long, even during a difficult time in the market, that they got my home sold! Thank you for all you do Josh and Katie! I appreciate your dedication and will not hesitate to call you again in the future!!

Building a unique, custom home in an unconventional setting creates the opportunity to live out your own dreams โ€“ your way. Selling that dream home, on the other hand, creates a challenge.
After entering an extended contract with a local agent to market this treasured home, we were disappointed in the results, and the listing ended without a sale in place.
Anticipating a closing (that unexpectedly cancelled) we had moved everything from the home, which depleted it of โ€œpersonalityโ€, leaving it up to oneโ€™s imagination to envision its value and beauty of design.
We needed an agent with ingenuity and experience that we could rely on to take this activity through the finish line in our absence.
Enter: a young man in a white hat, riding a white horseโ€ฆand his name is Josh Finigan - of The Finigan Group โ€“ EXP Realty...the best real estate agent we could have hoped for โ€“ bar none! Josh is an incredibly multi-talented and energetic marketer. He and his team are a delight to work with. Using his real estate knowledge and energy, together with the efforts of his (fabulous) assistant and support staff, he put together the perfect marketing program to sell our home to the right buyer. He kept us up-to-date on a regular basis, relating whatever activity had occurred during the past week, and (immediately) when something of note took place. He encouraged our input, and gave us the opportunity to review any actions he put into the plan.
If youโ€™re looking for professionalism with a positive outlook, make Josh your FIRST call. Youโ€™ll be glad you did. We certainly are!
