Conceived in the 1920’s, Charlotte’s Eastover neighborhood was originally marketed as a neighborhood for car owners. The adjacent Myers Park and Dilworth had street car service (which is why the neighborhood has a wide boulevard and monuments which served as the original street car stops) but to set Eastover apart, the lots were larger and only two street car stops were added in the neighborhood.
Today, Eastover is still set apart as a neighborhood with estate-sized lots and the highest priced homes so close to Uptown.
This week, Jonathan delivers the real estate sales figures from June 2020 and dives into if a Covid-triggered foreclosure wave is headed for the Charlotte area.
