And if you are thinking about making the move to Huntersville, you’re not alone. Keep reading to learn why the area’s job growth, affordable housing and great amenities make it the perfect place to put down roots.

Job Opportunities in Charlotte

It is common for Huntersville residents to call the sleepy suburb home and commute about 20 minutes to Charlotte for work. Known as a major U.S. financial center, Forbes ranked Charlotte the seventh best place for jobs in the U.S., one that has attracted new movers for years.

“There are a lot of people from the New York-area that came down for banking jobs in the 90s and more jobs spun off from that,” said Blair Sweeney, a Public Storage vice president of project development and real estate who grew up near Charlotte.

Even if you work outside the financial industry, it is easy to manage your money around this town, as the cost of living is two percent lower than the national average.

“There’s growth happening everywhere near Charlotte, including Huntersville,” said Reid Kahler, a Public Storage area manager. “There’s a lot of young people moving to town, in their mid-20s or early 30s for jobs and affordable housing.”

Moving to Huntersville

The South is known for its beautiful homes and neighborhoods, and Huntersville is no exception. Even better, the Charlotte-area housing market is quite affordable when compared to other bustling and growing cities.

On average, a Huntersville homebuyer can expect to pay $127 per square foot. That price is a steal compared to the national average of $141, according to estimates on Zillow.com.

“There’s still land around to build houses on, so Huntersville has been growing,” said Sweeney. “It’s a hot spot for development in the Charlotte area because it has a new freeway, making it an easy drive to Downtown Charlotte, Lake Norman and the airport.”

The I-485 beltway was completed in 2015, giving commuters easier access to Charlotte’s surrounding suburbs, including Huntersville.

The easier drives, affordable housing and job opportunities likely contributed to the huge 17 percent population increase in Huntersville between 2010 and 2016, according to Census data. And more people are expected to move to town in the coming years.

It is easy for longtime Huntersville residents to see how the city has changed. Condo, apartment and single-family home developments have been popping up like crazy to keep up with the influx of residents.

“The area near our new property is a mixture of businesses and people who are moving and needing additional space,” said Kahler of Public Storage. “The school system is ranked pretty well in the area, attracting families.”

Thankfully, this Huntersville Public Storage is next to the new Walmart Supercenter and the I-485 freeway for easy access.

Public Storage Investing in North Carolina

In addition to the Public Storage in Huntersville, another brand new facility opened in Cary earlier this year and an existing property expanded in Raleigh.

“It’s a great place to be,” said Sweeny. “Huntersville is at the southern end of Lake Norman and there’s all sorts of new housing and development in the area. It’s already in a nice and up and coming area.”

The three-story building in Huntersville has indoor, climate-controlled units that range from 5x5 units – which are great for holding camping gear and holiday decorations – to 10x30 units – which have lots of room to store furnishings between moves.

Packing, moving and storage supplies are also offered at the location, for Huntersville movers preparing for moving day!

Public Storage builders worked to make the new location look handsome, so it would fit into the community. With awnings, and varied exterior textures, from brick to stone façade, and large glass panes, looks like a retail space in an outdoor shopping center. Because everyone wants to fit in when they are the new kid on the block!
