Hi everyone! I am new to posting but have been reading other posts for the past few days.

My husband and I are moving to the Charlotte area and have little time to find a house (about 2 months). We visited last weekend and found that we liked Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson and Mooresville. Mount Holly was ok too, but we didn't get around to visiting Belmont and Harrisburg (which we are also considering). Does anybody have any thoughts or suggestions? We are looking for a home in an established neighborhood rather than a new development. My husband will be working in North Meck and I haven't found a job yet, but we would like something that wouldn't be too bad of a commute (I can deal with up to an hour, him....not so much) wherever I find a job.

Thanks in advance!

I like Wynfield Forest in Huntersville. Drive through it's very nice.

Established neighborhoods in Huntersville I recommend Cedarfield, Wynfield, Hampton Ridge. The homes in these location are not so cookie cutter as other subdivisions and have established trees, community pools, club house, and walkable streets & sidewalks.

Awsome - atleast 1 job out of 2 is good.

You can have my job, I just gave my 2 weeks notice. I've leave CLT.

I just saw some beautiful new builds in Belmont right behind Belmont Central Elementary last weekend very nice if I was in the market.

Come on and enjoy. If I had to choose, again, I would hands down pick huntersville. You have everything you want withing several exits in Huntersville, plus there are those awsome home developments and the lakes to pick from. Good luck. You will get a job, there are two major banks to pick from and ton's of other good companies.
