History of Homes for Sale in Belmont, NC
Incorporated in 1895, the town of Belmont began around a colonial-era fort. For many years, the town grew as the textile industry was the core of Belmont economy. Even though most of the textile industry has moved out to the United States, Belmont Real Estate has survived and once again thrives through the transition, seeing almost 100% occupancy rate of the revitalized downtown district and renovation of famous Stowe Park. New restaurants, shops and small businesses line the streets with activity. The Downtown Belmont Historic District has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1996.
Today, Belmont Real Estate continues to grow as new residents look for affordable real estate near Charlotte and long for the peace and tranquility of a small “Mayberry-like” town. Belmont Real Estate offers residents the best of both worlds—small town living with close proximity to urban entertainment, shopping and employment opportunities.
