Bordering Charlotte, Cabarrus County is a favorite for folks moving to the Charlotte area. The towns Concord, Harrisburg, Kannapolis, Mt. Pleasant and Midland offer unique communities within the greater Cabarrus market. Home to NASCAR and The Charlotte Motor Speedway, Concord Mills, The North Carolina Research Campus, and one of the country’s Top 100 Hospitals CMC-Northeast Medical Center, Cabarrus County is no longer a sleepy agricultural community. Oh, the cows are still here – .family farms still prosper through the region providing beautiful vistas for Sunday drives through the countryside. Historic homes line Union Street in Downtown Concord, and there are many gorgeous new home communities. See bottom of the page for a quick link to search by subdivision.
