Belmont is a cute little town. Family-friendly, shops, and more! Parks are clean and pet-friendly, too.

It’s a great place for families with a bustling but walkable downtown, very good public schools and multiple parks and green areas.

But the town lacks diversity and aside from the retail and restaurant businesses in town, there aren’t a lot of jobs in town itself. Most folks are commuting to Charlotte or Charlotte suburbs for work.
I am absolutely in LOVE with the small town and the small town feel here in Belmont. The schools are good with small class sizes and teachers and families knowing each other like family. Nothing is bigger in Belmont than Sout Point football in a cool crisp Friday Night.

Shopping is simple and just a 3-5 minute drive away. Harris Twitter comes to town September 2017. Crossings our fingers for a Starbucks in the HT.

Your gonna love the folks here in Belmont.
