by Mayes Harris Team

This week we are focusing on the City of Mooresville and we are starting with the Median Sales Price for this area doing a year-over-year comparison. In 2017, the January Median Sales Price was $305,000. In 2018, that dropped by -4.9 percent to $290,000 and then in 2019, we dropped slightly by -1.4 percent to $286,000.

Next, we will take a look at the number of New Listings that came on the market in the City of Mooresville in January. We start with 2 years ago, in 2017, where we see that there were 155 new homes added to the market. In 2018, that number decreased by -9.7 percent to 140 new Listings. In 2019, we increased by +40.0 percent to 196 new Listings. 

The last statistic we will review is the January Median Days on Market. Starting in 2017, we saw 47 median days on market in January. In 2018, that number increased by +4.3 percent to 49 and in 2019, the median days on market decreased by -32.7 percent to 33 days. Quite a decrease!

Davidson Farmer's Market

by Mayes Harris Team

Meet me at the market is the line on their website. What a great way to spend a few hours on Saturday with friends and/or family. This Farmer's Market is when the community really comes together and this is what I love about this community. Davidson really is like a picture out of a Norman Rockwell painting.

So here are some facts so you can plan your next trip to the Davidson Farmer's Market. 

1. The hours for the market are 8 am to 12 pm with 8:30 am to 10:30 am being the busiest. If you are looking for something that may be in a limited supply then you will want to get there early. If you are going to experience the community experience then plan on arriving after 10:30 am. 

2. The market is totally outdoors and so dress appropriately according to the weather.

3. There is public parking which is available on Main Street, Town Hall Lot, Police Department Lot, and at Davidson Presbyterian Church lot at the corner of Depot & Jackson Streets.

So plan on coming out and enjoy yourself!! Further information can be found here - DavidsonFarmersMarket.org

Davdison North Carolina Snowstorm 2017

by Mayes Harris Team

We were blessed with an unusual weather occurrence in Davidson, North Carolina and that was a snowstorm in 2017. With an annual average snowfall of 3.83 inches, this WAS a surprise! Walking outside to see the snow which had kissed the tree branches and laid enough soft covering for the kids to slide on was wonderful. Here's a few photos I took.

Happy Halloween!

by Mayes Harris Team

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Friday night, the rain held off so we could enjoy the Halloween March through Davidson.  Hundreds of costumed residents lined up at Davidson’s Town Hall to parade down Main Street to get candy, meet the merchants and visit with friends.  This is an aspect of Davidson that I just love.  Our sense of community is really “spooktacular” and is one of the things I point out to people who are looking to move to this area.  Every year, the town plans this event with our local merchants, and it’s a really fun way to celebrate this holiday.

Our whole Lake Norman region prides itself in being a welcoming community, and it enhances home sales when I am able to talk about these values.  People want to live here.  They want to raise their families here, retire here, and participate in everything there is to do in the area, whether it be having fun on the lake, going to festivals, shopping, going to sporting or cultural events, or enjoying the outdoors.

Enjoy Halloween and I hope that it brings you more treats than tricks!

Explore Davidson!

by Mayes Harris Team

The Town of Davidson has just launched its new website for visitors and residents, called ExploreDavidsonNC.com and it’s fabulous!  It’s chock full of information about dining, shopping and exploring Davidson.  If you don’t live in Davidson, check out the site and come visit for a day or weekend get-away.  They’ve even got a recommended itinerary listed under their “Things to do” tab.

One of the most exciting parts of this site is its six-word stories campaign.  Take a look at the video on the home page explaining this fun concept.  Check out one of the people featured in this video, sharing her very own six-word story!  I had a lot of fun participating in this.  Davidson: It’s my Norman Rockwell town!

Vote for your town…

by Mayes Harris Team

I recently learned of a website that is looking for the best small towns in America.  Rand McNally, the road atlas folks, and USA Today, are hoping Americans will vote for their favorite towns at http://www.bestoftheroad.com/.  I plan to vote for Davidson because of its small-town charm, history and amazing community, offering so much to do for families.  You might want to vote for Cornelius, Mooresville, Huntersville or Denver for their proximity to Lake Norman and other wonderful qualities. Or maybe you’re reading this blog from outside the Charlotte metro area, and will vote for your town somewhere else in the US. Is your town the most beautiful, the most patriotic, friendliest, most fun or the best for food? Wherever you are, have fun supporting your favorite town!

Lunch at Campania Café in Davidson

by Mayes Harris Team

A few days ago, I had lunch at Campania Italian Café and Trattoria located in the old ice house in South Main Square in Davidson.  What a unique space for a restaurant – I had fun reminiscing with other long-time local residents about grandparents getting blocks of ice from this location back in the old days.

We had a delightful meal.  I ordered the Caesar salad, which was large, fresh, and crisp.  Others at the table ordered the pasta fagioli soup, which was full of beans, pasta, and vegetables, seasoned with delicious fresh herbs. The special soup of the day, Italian wedding soup, was full of perfectly-shaped meatballs in a tasty broth.  The paninis seemed to be a big hit -- friends at our table swooned over the quattro formaggi (four cheese) panini, and the Sorrento panini, full of turkey, spinach, asiago and honey mustard was also enjoyed.

I’d highly recommend Campania for lunch or dinner.  It’s easy to find from exit 30, a close walk from town, and next to Restaurant X and Fuel Pizza.
