My husband and I are relocating to Charlotte this year and would like some recommendations on where to live. We want to buy a house, 120,000 to 150,000 no more than 25 miles from the city, no further. We have a dog and he needs a yard, and we would like to find an area where the houses are a little more spread out. Not a crammed subdivision.
Safety is important, can you think of areas to check out. What areas should we stay away from?

Schools vary significantly in the area, so if you plan to have children, just make sure you research that first.

I used to live in this subdivsion. At that price point, you may be challenged to find places that are spread out. This subdivision does have much larger lots than most others and I wouldn't consider the houses to be on top of one another. Most are .25 acres or more and are relatively flat.....perfect for your dog. Very close to Rivergate shopping area, Lake Wylie, and about 20-25 minutes from Uptown, and the airport.

Default need help

Hello,

I am having been trying to relocate to NC for the past 4yrs. It has never been the right time. Currently, I am employed with GMAC Insurance which is in Winston Salem area. My first choice was Charlotte because I am a single woman in my early 30's and I like the city feel. I have some family in that area also. The issue is that I have not had employment opportunities in Charlotte. I have a strong social service background as i have worked for Welfare Department and Section 8. I am currently pursing my masters in Education looking to getting into Higher Education. Should I just try to transfer to WS? Should I wait for something in Charlotte? Please weigh in I am looking to relocate at the end of August.
