Hi. Some buddies and myself have all got job offers in Charlotte, moving in May. We visited the city last weekend and saw as much as we could in 3 days and met as many people as possible. We loved the city and decided we are going to accept the jobs there; all in different fields believe it or not. Anyway, we all will be working uptown more or less and have always lived in the cities we were so we can walk as much as possible. There are all kinds of apartment buildings in the third and fourth ward but are any of the homes in the fourth ward (pine st., poplar, w 4th, etc.) rentals? And if they are what is the best advice in searching for ones available come May. Online searches of craigslist, apartment.com, and local rental guides in uptown all just list apartments in uptown. Thanks for your responses, advice, and time in advance!

Fourth Ward is a very nice area and very convenient for walking to everything uptown, though you'd want to be careful walking around at night by yourself in my opinion. When the time comes I'd suggest you contact a local realtor specializing in rentals to get the best guidance possible. Congrats on the jobs!

My best advise is to expand yr search if you want a house. There are only something like a dozen houses in 4th Ward.

Chances of one of them being available For Rent during your exact timeframe AND will to rent to a bunch of male roommates are... well Slim left on the Red Eye this morning and None is boarding.

There are several bigger houses near the South End area in places like Wilmore and Dilworth and also around JCSU.

Are you able to walk to uptown from those places you mentioned? We all will be working uptown so walking is more of a priority. If the chances are that slim then we will have to grab apartments instead. Is there a public rail that goes from any of those areas directly into uptown?

The light rail goes right thru Southend - I'd look at lofts there
