Default Looking to Relocate my family to Charlotte

We are looking to relocate to the Charlotte area or really the North Carolina area. We have 3 small children under 5. I am in property management. Just interested in the pros and cons of the area. Also if there are other areas aside from Charlotte that you may recommend.

Thank you

NC has several cities large enough for property management firms to operate. You probably should elaborate more on what you are looking for. If you just want a suburban life with decent schools it can be found in many places.

Pros
-affordable real estate
-nice malls
-kid activities such as water parks and a theme park
-OK weather, but it's not perfect
-a decent amount of concert stops
-nice downtown area to visit (with the exception of retail shopping)
-NBA/NFL

Cons
-high competition for decent paying jobs
-infrastructure has not kept up with growth
-the better schools are in suburban counties

Are there "better" areas in NC? It depends on your personal wants and needs. Some folks would rather live in the mountains while others would rather live near the coast. Some would rather live in a "college town" area (something that Charlotte is NOT and quite proud of that fact). For what it's worth, there are plenty of young families living happily in every corner of NC, so based on your post I can't really help you much. "We have 3 small children under 5" isn't much to go on as far as giving someone relocation advice. We don't need your personal life's story, but some simple things like price of real estate, type of neighborhood, proximity to certain amenities would help.
