If you can spend at least that much you will most likely find a rental in a nice area. I would suggest you consider townhome rentals too If you will be working at CMC-Main you are most likely to get the kind of commute you want by trying to live in the area immediately south of uptown Charlotte. Look for things for rent in the Cotswold neighborhood or in the South Park area.

Nice area, great hospital

Check out places like Craigs List online to find home rentals by owners. Don't hesitate to come back here and post addresses so we can tell you what we know, okay?

building a gated golf community 25 min from Charlotte in Locust. Good news is that they will have homes and townhomes at all price points... But they are just breaking ground....
