We just bought in to a neighborhood called Madison Ridge. It has a Matthews mailing address, it is in Union Cty, but we pay Stallings taxes. Matthews police patrol the area. Don't know if that helps.

Default Is Matthews in Union County

My advice is to find the rental first and then spend time really getting to know the area you are targeting. That being said, if you are interested in the Matthews/ Union county region, perhaps looking for rentals between Hwy 51 and Intst. 485 would be a good strategy- close for striking distance to your target area, good schools, and necessities are all close by via shopping centers in this same area.
You will also be close enough in to town to enjoy Charlotte and its goings on, explore areas you might like inside Mecklenberg County, and just get settled. The further out you go initially,without knowing the area, the more you will lose some level of convienence, as infrastructure is still growing out in Union County. however, with the surplus of homes for sale in Union County, you might be able to pick up a nice rental in your range. Thererfore you might want to start out with just a 6 month lease.
