My husband and I are planning to move to Charlotte with our young child (one year old). We'd like to move to an area/neighborhood with other young, professional families, in the price range of around 500,000-650,000. I like medium-size homes -- nothing too big and bland -- and I don't want to be too far from the city center, which is where my husband will be working. I imagine a neighborhood near a park, but something that also feels a bit more urban. Anyone have ideas of where we might want to look? Thanks for your help.

Within that price range you could be just about anywhere in the Charlotte area. I would also focus on things that you enjoy to do together as a family and such.

Good luck with your search.

In that price range you will have lots of options

For staying near to the center city have a realtor like CharlotteAgent set you up with a search on homes in the Elizabeth, Cotswald, Plaza Midwood and Chantilly neighborhoods. Best of luck!

I would also suggest Myers Park and Dilworth, especially if smaller homes are an option. Best of luck to you and please let me know if I can help

I too would highly recommend you look in Dilworth (off East Blvd). Myers Park would also be a good choice for you too. As was mentioned, in the price range you referenced, the sky is the limit for you in Charlotte. You could pretty much afford something in just about any area of town.

Default thanks!

Thanks for your help, everyone. Is Plaza Midwood considered safe enough for children? Is it still in the middle of a rejuvination?

Plaza Midwood is still a bit tranisitional, in my opinion. It is a great location, and many of the homes there have been restored to their original glory, and more. But personally, I wouldn't want to raise small children there.

Right now Plaza Midwood is in this period where alot of people are buying those bungalow homes and restoring them. Maybe in 15 years the area might be more family oriented. Now its regarded as a fun place and is considered "bohemian" for Charlotte standards. Plaza and NOda are the only two places were you see people with Mangenta color hair. Its the perfect place for people in their 20's! I love the energy its very quirky.

Since you want to raise children I highly recomend Dilworth it has highly rated restaurants like Patou in East Blvd. The cool little niche boutiques give the fashionistas a place to shop other than the Mall. Yet its very safe and the school system is great. I love Dilworth!

Check out Southpark.

The mall is great there too. If you're a shopper like me you'll love the Neimans!
