I want to thank all who have posted information about Charlotte, NC. This information is most helpful. We are thinking about moving to a nice community.

Relocating from one home to a new community is daunting, as some of the posting reveal. It seems as if there are more questions than answers. This forum has answered some of the questions.

I now know, that East and West Charlotte are less desirable than many other areas. I now know of communities named, Brandon Oaks, Concord, Huntersville, Union County, Waxhaw, and Weddington?

I now know, that many people commute to work. That snakes are necessary to Charlotte. By the way, I live in Tucson, Az, we have black widow spiders, brown recluse spiders, gila monsters, scorpions, and rattlesnakes.

But I still have this question, what is the difference between these communities; Ballantyne,Belmont, Brandon Oaks, Clover, SC, Concord, Ft. Mill, SC, Huntersville, Indian Trails, Lake Port, Marvin, Rosedale, Tega Cay, SC, Union County, Waxhaw, Weddington, and York County?

All of the areas you noted are very nice but the difference is ...
Ballantyne is more developed and urban than Weddington and Waxhaw. Weddington and Waxhaw are being radily built up though - new homes, schools, shopping. Ballantyne is in Charlotte (Mecklenberg County). Weddington, Waxhaw and Indian Trail are in Union County. Real estate taxes are less in Union County than Mecklenberg. Belmont is to the west of Charlotte and abuts Lake Wylie. All of the areas you mentioned are undergoing rapid development and change. I hope this information helps. I also sent you a PM with additional info.

I'll give it a shot:
Ballantyne - a planned area of south Charlotte with many different neighborhoods, a resort type hotel/golf course, good retail areas scattered throughout, great schools and a beautiful YMCA.

Belmont - a beautiful little old mill town just west of Charlotte in the next county over. Great commute to Charlotte. Some new neighborhoods are being built with water views.

Brandon Oaks - a large neighborhood, with nice ammenities in Union County.

Clover, SC - a nice little rural town which is close to Tega Cay and Gastonia for shopping.

Concord - a small city bordering Charlotte city limits on the northeast side. Very friendly, safe, good schools - The Concord High School Spiders are the current state football champs in their division. NASCAR's Lowe's Moter Speedway is in Concord and during the two BIG races of the year (May and September) it gets extremely crowded.

Fort Mill - a nice little city just over the NC state line in York County which is mostly rural and has great schools. A good place to commute to uptown Charlotte from.

Huntersville - a nice little city just north of the Charlotte city limits. Much new construction, good prices on homes. The furthest north of the city I would personnally live if I had to commute to uptown for work.

Indian Trail - tiny little bump in the road town in Union County It runs right into Stallings and Weddington, hard to tell where one ends and one begins.

Union county - the county east and south east of Charlotte. Fastest growing county in the whole state. Home of the country singer Randy Travis.

Marvin, Waxhaw and Weddington are all very desirable, but getting very expensive areas, of Union county. Very rural, bucolic and scenic with great schools.

Thanks LoveMountains for this information. We have visited twice down in Union County and have focused in on Weddington. I appreciate the summaries of each area. We visited many of those sections listed above.

We are planning a third trip town, I just have to be thorough before I move ten hours away from where I grew up.

Of those, I voted for Belmont. I lived there for 6 years and loved it. A real hidden jewel. But I also have to include Harrisburg, which boarders Charlotte and Concord. Very nice little town that's surely worth a look. Good luck!!!
