My family is relocating to the Charlotte area. We have some flexibility on where we can live near the city as my husband will be based just west of downtown but will be traveling often throughout the western part of the state. We have a 3 yr old so good public schools are important. We also want to live in a family friendly community. We are considering Huntersville or Fort Mill, SC. We know the schools in fort mill are good and do not know much about the schools in Huntersville. Can anyone give some advice as to which area would be good to live in? Is one better than the other in terms of school, community and home value appreciation? We are from Houston, TX and used to crazy traffic so our tolerance for commute may be higher than the average. I appreciate all the advice. Thank you!

Both of them are very good places. You will be happy in either one. If you choose Huntersville stay north to get into the Hough HS district.

What specifically is it about Huntersville/Fort Mill that intrigued you? Knowing that info might help guide you better. Also, rough housing budget in case there's other similar areas to consider?

On the southwest side of Charlotte, you might want to also consider Lake Wylie, SC. It's a nice area and the cost of living for everything such as taxes and utilities is lower than in North Carolina, except the water bill. The Clover School District is excellent. Good luck with your search!
