Marvin Ridge High School - #16 in the Nation, Area Real Estate Market, & Homes for Sale

Posted By Jessica McVey @ Apr 21st 2016 9:15pm In: Homes for Sale in Union County

Located just 21 miles south of uptown Charlotte is the city of Waxhaw, North Carolina.  And, within Waxhaw is the 16th best high school in the state, Marvin Ridge High School, according to U.S. News & World Report. Marvin Ridge HS is in a highly desirable area of south Charlotte.

With easy access to uptown, low Union County taxes, a semi-rural setting, and great schools, Waxhaw’s homes for sale are some of the fastest moving in the area.  Waxhaw also has its own quaint downtown which is host to a fantastic annual fourth of July fireworks show and many other community events.

Rea View Elementary, Marvin Elementary, Sandy Ridge Elementary, and Marvin Ridge Middle are the feeder schools of Marvin Ridge High School.  All of these schools have received praise and recognition as top public education facilities in the state. Marvin Ridge HS has also been ranked #505 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, a fantastic accomplishment considering the rankings include charter, magnet, and public schools.

Most homes for sale zoned for Marvin Ridge High School are single-family, large (between 3,000 – 5,500 sq ft), four to five bedroom, and priced between $450,000 - $950,000.  Here are some interesting facts to know about the real estate market of homes for sale assigned to Marvin Ridge HS:

  • Homes sell for $145 per square foot on average, an increase of 7.4% from 2015
  • On average, a home sells for 95.7% of its list price
  • Today (April 21st, 2016) the Marvin Ridge HS area has 6.5 months of inventory. This means the market is quite balanced, there are just as many buyers as there are sellers.  This is actually quite unique compared to the rest of south Charlotte, as we’re seeing very low inventory around the city this spring.  With low inventory, sellers have the upper hand, multiple offers are common, and homes go under contract quickly.
