House hunting? Here’s what $150,000 buys you just over the state line



South Carolina towns just over the state line continue to draw home buyers who say communities including Fort Mill, Rock Hill, Tega Cay, Lake Wylie and Lancaster offer a desirable mix of good schools, lower taxes and better cost of living.

Many living here work locally, and others say the location is great for commuting into Charlotte or specifically to the corporate hubs in Ballantyne.

Here’s what on the market or recently under contract at the $150,000 price point.

  • Specs: 3 beds, 3 baths, 1,815 sq. ft.
  • Asking: $148,000
  • Noticed for: This property is a townhouse, but the pretty Victorian-style fencing and porch details make it look like a stand-alone cottage. Good use of interior space, plus location is right near Main Street and Winthrop University.
