If I am going to be working in Charlotte... 6100 Fairview... which I believe is in the Southpark area...What town in Union County or Southeast Charlotte would be the fastest and easiest commute from?

Why not live in the South Park area? What's your price range?

I live in Riverpointe just off Hwy 49 on Lake Wylie. I worked in that building for five years. I left my house around 7-7:30 and it took me around 30 minutes to get into town a real easy commute.

If you are looking in the $300,000 and up range this community would be very desirable.

However, if you would like a shorter commute you should look around Quail Corners area. It is a beautiful area and you are only a few minutes away from work. Beverly Woods East, Mountainbrook and so many others.

Look luck with your search. The area is area 5 and if you look in caroinahome.com you should fine something in your price range that you will love.

I am not a realtor but if I can help, please let me know.

I would like to rent first, I really want to stay around $1000 a month for a 3 bedroom 2 bath. I believe SouthPark is a great area, but wouldn't you say it is out of my price range? I have 2 children who will be sophmores and one going into kndregarten. I need to be in a good neighborhood.

It would be very hard to rent a 3 bedroom for $1,000 in Southpark. You could find one probably in the Pineville area and Carmel Commons both about 15 minutes away. Also Quail Hollow area.

GOOD LUCK!

$1000 for a 3 bedroom house won't be found, so look for apartments instead. I would suggest you look to stay along hwy 51 somewhere. I like Echo Forest apartments, which are great because they are right across the road from Providence High School, though unfortunately I think their 3 bedrooms are over $1200. But do check them out to be sure. Also, other places along 51 like the apartments Piper Station at Piper Glen and Marquis of Carmel Commons. Good luck to you!

Try Olde Georgetowne. It is a condo complex with a great pool and the
common areas make you feel like you are out in the country with all the grass.

There are quite a few for sale and you may be able to pick up a lease.

Also, there are some apartments right at Southpark, can't think of the their name that might work for you. Maybe someone reading the post will have more information on the rental side for you.

I wish you luck!

You could look in Indian Trail or Waxhaw. With traffic, you would look at 45 minutes to South Park. My wife works across the street from South Park and we live in Monroe and it takes her 45 minutes on average to get there in the mornings. Throw in a car wreck on either side and it will add 20 minutes because of everyone looking!
