Default single woman relocating - btwn Davidson & Charlotte from New York City

Hi Everyone,

I'm coming to NC in July for a 2 year work assignment in Davidson, NC. I'd like to have less than a 30 minute commute. I've lived in NYC/Hoboken for the past 7 years.

I've only spent about 10 days in the area, but spent most of the time in the office - stayed in a hotel in Huntersville. I'm looking for a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom rental apartment/townhome/condo. I'd like to keep the rent in the $1200 range (would go for a 2br, 1ba if necessary).

I reviewed other posts but most were looking for schools or buying a place. I am a single 30 year old woman. No pets, don't smoke. Want a balcony or patio, but not a big outdoor person. I have a car and want a garage.

Obviously, I'm moving from a city, but wouldn't be opposed to living on the edges of the city. If outside of the city, I need taxi accessibility that isn't too expensive, as I like to go out in the city and don't want to worry about getting home. I'd love to be able to easily walk to restaurants/shops/etc.

THANKS!

If you want to live in the city, live uptown and reverse commute. You can probably pull that off in the 30-35 minute range.

Otherwise I'd just live in Davidson. Huntersville and Corntown are just two boring suburban towns with the usual lakeneck scene. At least Davidson is somewhat progressive.

Davidson is a highly desirable place to live.

However, if you find it too small town, your only real alternative is to live in uptown Charlotte.

Everything between the two is pure suburbia (or transitioning 'hood closer to uptown).

I think with your budget you might find a few one bedroom condo's, though I'm not sure you'll find too many with garages.
