Summer selling season is in high gear, and if you’re like most Charlotte buyers, you’ll probably be guided by two main factors: price and neighborhood.

We’re helping you get a sense of your options and acting as your real estate guide. This is part 2 of 4, with homes in ranging from $201,000 to $300,000.* That’s the most common range for sales in Mecklenburg County — the median home sale in June was $234,000, according to the Charlotte Regional Realtor Association.

[Agenda story: What $200,000 can buy you, by Charlotte neighborhood]

Myers Park/Eastover

Even at a slightly higher price, you’ll be looking for a condo in this upscale neighborhood if this is your budget.

$239,000 — 2810 Selwyn Ave., Unit 314

1 bed, 1 bath condo (750 square feet)

NoDa

Just like Myers Park, you’ll be looking for a condo if you want to be in NoDa proper in this price range. Even this unit that’s available is outside the core of what’s considered NoDa.

$223,500 — 2338 Yadkin Ave., #202

2 bed, 2 bath condo (1,174 square feet)

Quail Hollow

You won’t be able to buy a golf course-adjacent house for this price, but the area is far enough out that you should be able to afford a family home with this budget.

$285,000 — 6121 Kingstree Drive

4 bed, 2.5 bath house (2,046 square feet)

If you’re house hunting in Charlotte’s southernmost suburb, you’ll be able to find a well-appointed townhome or an average-size family home in this range.

$275,000 — 11841 Royal Castle Court

3 bed, 3 baths (2,433 square feet)

Mountain Island Lake

If you want to live in this up-and-coming suburb, you’ll be able to find a nice family home here. (Just don’t expect it to be lakeside.)

$225,000 — 11213 Golden Drive

4 beds, 2.5 baths (2,512 square feet)

And we’re back in condo/townhome land if you want to keep it at $300,000 or less in SouthPark proper.

$277,500 — 5425 Closeburn Road

2 beds, 2 baths (1,291 square feet)

Plaza Midwood

You’re still very limited in this price range in Plaza Midwood — it’s not that big of a neighborhood, after all. Travel next door to Belmont and you can find some options like this cute (but small) craftsman home.

$290,000 — 817 E. 20th St.

2 beds, 2 baths (1,150 square feet)

Matthews

Another family-friendly suburb, another town that will give you oodles of options for a great home. You’ll also have your pick of neighborhoods within the town.

$279,900 — 2500 Crescent Knoll Drive

4 beds, 3 baths (2,334 square feet)

Fort Mill

In this price range, you’ll have your choice of an established neighborhood or a brand new home. Your hardest decision will be where in the town to call home and snapping up the property when it comes available since prime locations go quickly.

$274,900 — 2031 Lakebridge Drive

4 beds, 2.5 baths (2,173 square feet)

Huntersville

You’ve got some good options in this northern suburb. You can even get close to the lake if you’re willing to go small on square footage.

$244,500 — 8606 Cedar Hollow Lane

4 beds, 2.5 baths (2,532 square feet)
