We have a chance to check out a house in each of these subdivisions. When I searched the forums, I did find a couple of posts on the subject and some talk wondering if this was an area with a Charlotte address which is actually Mint Hill.

I know most of the posts here about Mint Hill talk about it as an area which has gone downhill and is not very safe. Is this also true of this section of Charlotte ?

Thanks for any info.

Most of the posts about Mint Hill say it has gone downhill and are not safe??? I don't remember those posts, other than 2 specific posters, one that complains about property values (which I've noticed in the neighborhood he complained about have seemed to be steadily increasing recently) and one that complains about being able to see garage doors from the street and the fact that Mint Hill didn't replicate a historic New England downtown.

For the most part, Mint Hill is safe. If anything, some just have concerns about the parts of Mint Hill that border Charlotte, such as the area you mention, but even that is probably a bit exaggerated.

If it was "actually in Mint Hill" it would have a Mint Hill address. It looks like that neighborhood is in Charlotte, but just borders Mint Hill (and is assigned to the same schools as some in Mint Hill). The only difference is if it is within Charlotte city limits taxes will be a bit higher than town of Mint Hill. One negative to that immediate area is that the former Bi-Lo site is currently vacant, so never a good thing to have empty storefronts.

For the price range the available homes in those neighborhoods (actually looks pretty much like one neigborhood to me) are in ($125K for a SFH), the Mint Hill area is probably one of the better areas IMO.

Thanks, goPhils. When there are just a few comments about an area, it's hard to know if you are at one end of the bell curve or the other, or if the perception is generally true, so that's why I asked.

Appreciate your input.

It is always important to remember that an address, that is, a postal address or street number, does not represent the municipality or taxing authority for a property. Some Matthews, NC addresses are actually in Union County for example. The address most commonly refers to the post office serving the property and is for federal purposes which are unaligned with any local designations or purposes.

Yeah but like you said that's more for areas that don't have a post office. I think there are only a few areas like that...Stallings being the most common one. I know there is an area near Denver in Lincoln county with a Stanley even though Stanley is in Gaston County.

OP asked about Mint Hill. As far as I know, if a house is Mint Hill, it will have a Mint Hill address.
