Charlotte Zip Code Among Most Searched in Nation
Charlotte's Ballantyne and Piper Glen areas are among the most-searched zip codes of 2013 for those looking for real estate, according to an affiliate of the National Association of Realtors.
South Charlotte's 28277 ranks No. 5 on the nationwide list. The area's strong schools, the number of nearby businesses and office parks, and its abundant shopping and dining options among the reasons for its growth.
