Real estate has done well in Charlotte lately.

Across the city, home prices have fully rebounded from the Great Recession, and then some. In all but a handful of Charlotte neighborhoods, real estate values have never been higher.

But some neighborhoods are far outstripping the rest. Ten of them have seen their home values increase by more than 20 percent in just the past year.

Perhaps unsurprisingly the top four are all around Plaza Midwood. West Charlotte is also well-represented.

Most of these neighborhoods have a mixture of renovated homes at higher prices and older homes and lots for cheaper. In several of them, buyers have begun tearing down old housing stock and building new, bigger houses. The markets in these areas are also generally not very brisk at this point.

Expect these neighborhoods to continue increasing in value.
