Thanks for the input JC. How long would the drive to uptown be from Weddington? I am reading a lot of good things about the area and their school system.

I have also heard a lot of great things about Ballantyne. I am starting to lean towards south Charlotte as opposed to north Charlotte for the schools, drive to uptown, and traffic. So much to consider!

Thanks again for all the help!

OK Kim
Well I got that wrong!
I believe that you may get something with 5 acres further out of the towns in Iredell or Cabarrus counties. We looked at stuff with that amount of land in the price range you talk about.

I don't think Union is all that rural if you stay in the western part near Charlotte. It is exploding with population, it is the fastest growing county in NC. They also have decent schools. I like land too The commute depending on where you are in western Union is anywhere from 20min to an hour also depending on traffic. Check out realtor.com and try searching on Weddington, Waxhaw, Indian Trail, Matthews (which is also partly in Meck county), from what I see Pineville and Ballentyne don't really have an acre if that is what you want. I am not a fan of Meck schools at this point in time, they are not very stable. I am sure there are good schools there but that was the one piece of advice we got when moving as we have 2 schoolage children was stay out of Meck.

Red face Pembroke Pines, FL

Kim, I used to live in Pembroke Pines, I'm sure you know where that is. I've also lived in Tampa, FL, and Winston-Salem and Asheville, NC. We currently live in Huntersville, NC. I love it here! It will not fit your land requirement but coming back from Charlotte, the drive gets bad around exit 23 heading north. Keep that in mind...

As far as the Meck. schools, I heard not to get involved with them but if anything spins off, it will be Huntersville. That doesn't really concern me because it will only make the schools even better. The schools for our neighborhood are good and living in FL, I was used to the charter schools.

I hope you find what you are looking for...

Moved from Kendall to Charlotte, last year.

Work uptown for a firm off accountants.

Was advised to rent first, we did and explored Charlotte North, South, East & West.

We like south Charlotte the best, we ended up putting a contract down on a new house near Lake Wylie 30 minute commute from downtown.

We tested commute times for areas we where interested in, for instance Wesley Chapel was taking over an hour so we decided to look at other areas.
