Fort Mill Homes for Sale and Real Estate
Linda Hall, agent with Century 21 Realty, sums up the town of Fort Mill in one word: Home. Located in northern York County along the Interstate 77 corridor, Fort Mill is one of the fastest-growing communities in South Carolina, complete with top-performing schools, low property taxes and a bevy of luxury homes. “I’ve worked in the Fort Mill real estate market for 38 years,” says Hall. When she moved to Fort Mill, her son was 4 years old. “I wanted good schools, a safe place to live and I loved being close to Lake Wylie.” When Hall first moved to Fort Mill she recalls that there was only one grocery store. The town has evolved quite a bit since. Today, Fort Mill is home to a wide array of businesses, restaurants, recreational opportunities and housing options. “Fort Mill appeals to a lot of different buyers,” says Ben Bowen, owner of Ben Bowen Properties. “The great schools, low taxes and incredibly quality of life make it an extremely attractive place for almost everyone.”
