My husband and I both 40yrs old with 4 children 16, 14, 12, & 10 are thinking of moving to NC. We are looking for good schools and a decent community.
We are willing to spend 300 to 500 for a brick home with at least 1 acre of land. If someone know a nice area and a low crime rate the info would be greatly appreciated. I would like an area that people mind their own business and gossipping is not #1 on people's priority list. We would like to be in a neighborhood where not everyone is trying to keep up with one another. Including size of house footage, what kind of car they are driving and name brand of clothing. We are just trying to teach our children that family is important and not materialistic objects.
If anyone has a great area they would like to recommend, Please I am willing to take any advice

Default Union County

If you're looking for more than an acre, the best place here in the metro would be Union County (southeast suburbs of Charlotte). Schools are very good, taxes low, but it's one of the fastest growing counties in the nation. They're having a hard time keeping up with the growth. But it's the best county around here that has what you stated you're looking for (schools, acreage). Not sure what Union County's website is, but just Google "Union County, NC" and I'm sure you'll get the information you'll need. Also go to Charlotte.com, it might be helpful. Good luck and welcome!!!!!

I also live in Union County -- just over border from South Charlotte. It's tough to find an acre of land in the Charlotte area, but it can be done. We relocated from NY in 1998 and were surprised at the smaller lot sizes. Moderator cut: advertising
