Welcomemat Services has put together numbers that show the 28277 zip code in Charlotte is the second-most moved-in for the United States.

A total of 594 new households moved in during May. Just two households shy of Katy, TX, at the top of the study.

"28277 is fantastic because of the proximity to just about everything," Keller Williams Realtor Cynthia Matheny said. "We're a short commute to uptown where a lot of executives work, local hospitals, schools -- we have some of the top-rated public schools in the area as well."

Matheny said that an average home listing goes under contract in about one week, compared to a month on homes outside of the hot-zip code.

"You have to be a little creative in order to win a multiple offer in this area," Matheny said. "We actually find we have a shortage of listings for our buyers so we're knocking on doors, asking people if they're interested in selling, calling for-sale-by-owners and thinking outside the box to help people in the area."

28277 includes shopping centers like Ballantyne Commons and Blakeney, school clusters like Ardrey Kell and has quick access to I-485.
