Hello all,
I'm thinking about moving my familly to the Charlotte area from North Jersey and am looking for a town that has a few qualities: family oriented, commuting distance (30-45min) from Charlotte and good schools. Any advice? Thanks

Much depends on your exact job location and your price range. Can you provide that info?

Since nothing is set, I would assume I'll be working in center city (financial) and looking at homes from 250000-350000..roughly

Hi, not really sure but am looking for less than a 30 minute commute from downtown. I'm in the early stages of researching...so don't have too many facts yet

If you are looking at the Financial sector you could be anywhere from Rock Hill to North Charlotte. That in itself is almost a 45-60 minute drive. It is not at all that people don't want to be helpful it is just without knowing where you are working it is hard to give you advise.

I have worked at two of the large banks here and been in three separate areas. :-). Honestly once you find a job you can find a house easily in that range in many areas. I would focus on a job then do a house search. The financial sector is still pretty sluggish here - but it is picking up.

Good luck

You can't really count on uptown Charlotte being your job location just because you are in the banking/financial industry.

I understand you just want basic info, but it is really too hard to give you what you want until you know where you might be working, sorry.

Why commute to center city at all. Charlotte has fine neighborhoods in the near-downtown area: Dilworth, Midwood, Plaza and others. Walk, ride bike or bus or light rail to downtown or drive if you wish.
