We are looking to relocate to the Charlotte area, but are not familiar with the best sides of town. Money is no object.....We are looking for an upscale area with newer homes, close to best mall, fresh market, best restaurants, etc. Any ideas? Thanks! By the way, on average, how many inches of snow do you get per snowfall? More or less than Cary?

Ballantyne (sp?) has a lot of very large, nice, new homes. It's in south Charlotte.

Myers Park is the nicest neighborhood close to uptown, but the homes are not new.

I'm not sure about the snowfall stats.

You will have many options in Charlotte -- and depending on what you are looking for you should be able to get exactly what you want. Though the Lake Norman area is beautiful I am partial to South Charlotte / Union county. Ballantyne Country Club and Providence Country Club are in South Charlotte and have options for private golf memberships. The same is true of Longview and Firethorne in Union County. These are beautiful communities, and near some very nice shopping areas. If golf is not something you want, there are also upscale subdivisions that offer swimming/tennis, and others that have neither. I would be happy provide more detailed information if you'd like, including listings that fit your specifications. Feel free to PM me

Take care and good luck in your search!

I think we mainly get the horrible sleet. I really can't remember the last time we had real snow. Seems to be mainly ice. Also remember we only have one snow truck in the state of NC and thats in the mountains.

....Just in we have two snow trucks for NC now!!!

It only lasts for about 48hrs then everything is clear. Good Luck.

LOL Charlotte Agent you are SO right...as a person who relocated from the Northeast, I LOVE that when it snows you are EXPECTED to stay home and wait for the snow to melt. In NY it wasn't so much the snow I hated but the fact that you were expected to get to work through it. Believe it or not, even though "SNOW" is a 4 letter word I I like when it snows here. I actually had to teach my kids how to make a snowball when we had that "storm" two years ago. And yes the ice stinks, though we were very lucky last winter!

With all your criteria, Ballantyne is the way to go! If you didn't care about being a bit further away from the mall and other retail you should check out the Palasaides on Lake Wylie - wow is all I can say about that place. Good luck!
