Hi there!
Congratulations on your move!
Why did you choose Huntersville over Charlotte?
I'm moving this weekend to either Charlotte or Huntersville... W00-H00! (we'll make the final decision when we arrive and tour both areas).

Sincerely,
Maddie Claire

Not to steal Whytewulf's thread, but thought I would throw in my reason for choosing S. CLT over H'ville. My sister had lived in H'ville since the 80s so while I was living out of state, I would visit her and had decided - if we ever move back to CLT - I would move to H'ville.

However, DH's regional office was located in S. CLT so we decided the commute was not workable. As it turns out, he basically telecommutes, so it was not such a concern after all. But that is my answer - the commute was our deciding factor. H'ville is a great area!!

Sister has since moved to Mooresville, so I guess if I move, I would now consider M'ville! Both towns are growing, vibrant areas.

Good luck on your upcoming move!!!

Hi all, thanks for the congrats. I am looking forward to getting in next month. Anyway free to help move?

Why I chose Huntersville? I work in uptown, and wanted to stay within 45 minutes of uptown. Pretty good sized radius. I could have gotten a bit more house for the money in the south, however, I have family in Salsbury and Winston, so staying on the north side made sense. After looking at several communities, I liked the Huntersville ones because they seem to have a bit more potential for value increases. They have better ranked schools. Some draw backs, is you are stuck with some more 2 lane roads and less retail right there. I will be between northlake mall and Birkdale, which means 10 minutes one way or the other. There is still some open land that may stay open land. It's also a bit smaller community where I feel I could still get involved. Needs a good sports bar though.
