That place has re-opened as a coffee and sweets shop.

I am grateful that I am here. I have met many nice people. It is such an improvement for a quality of life we were looking for. No place is perfect, but I can count my blessings.

Yes, I love Huntersville, and it is a nice place to live, but it really bothers me that apparently 67% of the people there now are relocators. I can't even imagine how the few natives around must feel now that they can't even recognize their hometown any more

In addition, I found this statement interesting...

"The brutal 2008-2009 recession has taken a toll on Relovilles, but not much of one. Home prices in the Relovilles around Denver, Atlanta and Charlotte have barely budged."

A few financial armchair quarterbacks here will disagree with that, but overall, and compared to other parts of the country, I would say that's accurate.

The high end market, which sorely needed adjusting, is seeing the biggest price reductions. But in median priced homes and below (which Charlotte has plenty of) the movement downward has not been that bad. Charlotte and its metro remain a great place to buy a home

Hi Loves,

I have to tell you that I love this area!!! I have met some natives that were very welcoming and have become neighbors. Unfortunately no place stays the same. My home town of Nyack, NY made the top 5 places to live, but it is now out of our price range. And to be quite honest, I can't replicate the past down there, so I am thrilled to be here. I keep asking myself, how lucky we are to have sold our house in the northeast. Charlotte is beautiful as well. It is so nice that we are in close proximity of all that this area has to offer.

Default Huntersville

Hubtersville sounds like a great place, but could possibly be out of my price range with a $90,000 median income. I will be moving to NC next year and I am researching a good area to move to with my 13 year old son. I am looking for decent schools, safety, and affordability but nice.

I will be moving from a house in Ohio and would like to move into a townhouse apartment or ranch style apartment with some amenities. I am currently looking at Concord or Mooresville. What can you tell me or suggest othr areas I ahould consider.
