Oh and for the original OP... You aren't going to find anything uptown worth living in for $160,000. The lower end condos are going for abotu $200+. I would recommend 20 minutes outside the city for that amount... but if you really don't want to commute and stay uptown, gonna have rent for a bit to get up to $200,000 plus.

I bought a house last year with a real good program called NACA, it's on the west side of Charlotte and it's not the ''hood'', I got it for $108, the area is quiet and my family and I feel very happy. Moderator cut: TOS VIOLATION . The best thing for you to do is to come to Charlotte and have a relative/friend give you advise.

So after everything you've read on this site about not moving without a job, you not only want to do just that but you also want to buy rather than rent? Oh, to be 25 again. My advice: don't do it! You should be able to get something with one of the banks or TIAA CREF. Go to their sites and sign up. Then, once you have a job, rent an apartment close to uptown. Spend 12-18 months deciding if you like Charlotte and what parts of the area you like. Then, after you've done that, buy something. Please.
