I live in Lawson and you may be able to buy a spec for that money there. I am originally from Brooklyn myself, my family and I moved here last summer from NJ and we love it, you'll be happy, it's just like the good old days with adults chatting in the streets while all the kids play. Prices increase so fast in the new communities. Good luck what whereever you decide!

Default Monroe, maybe?

This may not be up your alley...however, if you like historic homes and historic buildings, Monroe is a good place to live...you can buy a historic home (late 1800's to early 1900's) from 200k-400k.... Monroe is an up-and-coming area...with lots of character. Many commute to charlotte (20 - 40 mins, depending where you're going)... The schools are improving in the city...the county schools are exceptional...and there is a charter school in the city that is exceptional as well. Chek out the website... and best of luck....

I'd try Lawson if you want new, and I agree there are great prices on resales and specs in there. I think Ryland has a spec master down, that they would probably bargain to under 400,00 and Shea has 2 specs under 400K

We are in Silver Creek and we are happy here, and no Waxhaw taxes . There are a couple of resales in there. I think Weddington Trace is the same too. I used Neal Saunders.com. His website you can choose the area (10) and search by subdivision, very helpful

I am a new yorker from Queens really considering moving to the Charlotte area. I've been in New York almost all of my life, but want to start a small business in Charlotte and feel like that may be a good place to relocate. I certainly want a house - somewhere in the 150-300k range for myself and my family. However, I am not too keen on that ultra-suburbia feel typical in Charlotte neighborhoods. are there any suggestions out there?
