Tank town isn't all bad, but just beware. No matter where you are in Tank Town, you are not far from wicked behavior. I wish this wasn't true, but it is just the nature of this area of Charlotte. I am glad I could help!!!

If price is your main concern you probably can't go wrong there. Perhaps check out Cedar Mill by DR Horton off Mt. Holly at 485. I would suggest however that the schools aren't great and there are quite a few "starter home" neighborhoods that have been plagued by crime and foreclosures; such as Catawba River Plantation and Riverbend up by the Food Lion at Mt. Holly/Hville road. Cedar Mill does look nice though and if the market ever comes around Rhein Station should be a nice shopping amenity across the street. I think however that $140K may only get you townhome.

It may not be such a bad thing to look in Mt. Holly, Belmont or perhaps Lincoln County where schools and safety aren't as much of a concern.

If however you want to be closer to town as well as close to Mt. Holly, at this price point, NW Charlotte may be your only option.

I used to live in Sonoma Village and NEVER had a problem (was the first person to move in there). I really liked living there for the most part. Didn't commute up town, but didn't see traffic as an issue. 15-20 minutes easy. 485 will make traveling to Northlake and Wal-mart Easy. There was large developments planned on Mt. Holly for lots of commercial development (Home Depot, movie theater, drug store, grocery store etc.) I suspect the present economy may have delayed that, but they are planned. There were two new schools planned for the area which may significantly change the schooling there. I would think twice if you currently have high school age kids. I new High School is planned for the area, but that's a ways off.

Ok so I know nothing about those neighborhoods or that general area, but if I did I would gladly give you my honest opinions. Mostly I just want to say sorry people are being so mean & rude to you and I have no idea why they feel the need to be so aggresive over what seems to be a simple question. Bottomline if you don't know about this area a simple, "I don't know those neighborhoods but here is a link that might help you research them" would suffice. Or better yet just close the post and move on to the next one. No need to slap the OP's hand for daring to ask a question.
