Having no clue where you're from and your nursing experience/background, and my own curiosity - as a young single (no spouse / children) RN - why did you decide on Charlotte (and Carolinas Medical, I'm guessing) vs. NYC, Chicago, Boston, Philly or even Winston-Salem????

Yeah, I'm a big Plaza-Midwood cheerleader..............I bought there in 1988 and love it. Its such a cool neighborhood, bungalow architecture, lots of shopping alternatives, and location, location, location. On the downside it has become expensive, prices are well above $200 a square foot. My neighbors house sold for $264 a sq ft this past summer! There are tons of houses on the market in Plaza-Midwood, so I would consider it a buyers market. I hear the average days on market is about 120 days.

As for NODA, it has come a long way. However I feel it still has a ways to go. I would feel best about living close to 35th st and avoid the "fringe" NODA areas.

Dilworth is awesome, if I could have afforded it I would have bought there instead of Plaza-Midwood. Of the 3 neighborhoods you mentioned I would say Dilworth is the largest.

You might also want to look at Elizabeth and Chantilly, older close in neighborhoods adjacent to Plaza-Midwood.

Good Luck and let us know where you end up
