Hello,
My husband and I are planning on moving to Charlotte from Chevy Chase, DC in January. We love our neighborhood but we cannot afford to purchase a house after our lease is up in March. We would like to buy in January so our daughter could start school kindergarten there mid year instead of close to the end of the year. Houses in our neighborhood run from $850k and up. The houses for $850 are considered fixer-uppers.
We are both in our 30s and have two small kids. We are thinking about private schools unless someone has a recommendation on a great elementary, middle and high schools that we should consider.
We would like to buy a house in the $400s any suggestions on neighborhoods? We would like to upgrade later without having to change school districts.
We like older homes that you find close to the city. We are currently living in a 1940s home and only two blocks up from fine restaurants and shopping. Yet it is a quiet little neighborhood. Hopefully that should explain what we're looking for. We love Myers Park but know that it is out of our price range.
Whatever help you can offer we would appreciate it!

It sounds like you want to look in Elizabeth, Chantilly, Plaza-Midwood or possibly Dilworth (not sure you can find anything in your price range there). These have lovely older homes, all close in to Charlotte - beautiful neigbhorhoods which are walkable. Good luck!

Maybe someone else could clarify, but perhaps you could find a beautiful, older home in Myers Park or Queens neighborhood. Queens is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Charlotte...very established and lots of "old" money.

Not for under $500,000, and mostly well above that
