Hello, everyone! I will be relocating to the Charlotte area upon graduation in December. I am looking for an apartment in one of the safer, vibrant, and professional oriented areas. Based on my research, I understand that at least $800-$900/mo for a decent 1BR apartment is the norm. The distance of my commute to work has little influence on where I choose to stay. My main priority is finding somewhere comfortable to live regardless of the distance from work. I'm just trying to do my due dilegence in order to make an informed decision. What are some of the best areas that fit the bill for my needs? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Many of the safer, vibrant and professional oriented areas (South End, Dilworth, Uptown) are out of your budget. You may (or may not) find something in NODA, Plaza Midwood or Southpark in your budget.


And you might want to rethink "The distance of my commute to work has little influence on where I choose to stay." You could have a very long, stressful commute.

Thank you for your reply. I will reconsider the commute aspect of things. At this point, it seems as though I will have better luck finding something on the outskirts of Charlotte.

Absolutely agree with BC1960. I have a friend that thought she wouldn't mind her commute but quickly realized that a 30 minute commute to work adds up to 5+ hours a week the she will never get back. (5+ because there is always an accident and a 30 minute commute is rarely on 30 minutes!)
