400000 x 4% = $16000
16000 X 300 mil or (0.300) = $4800

Hope this helps.

There are other top notch schools in south charlotte and matthews. If you would consider going into union county, wesley chapel and weddington schools are EXCELLENT. I have several friends and family who live in weddington/wesley chapel and simply love it. as a former school teacher i must be honest and say that i have been most impressed with unioncounty and the fort mill school district. if you have any questions please don;'t hesitate to ask! i am actually showing property this weekend in union county in your price range so i may have some great ideas for you.

if youare interested check out our website at savvyand company.com I am julie w.

i hope this helps and I know your family will love Charlotte!
Julie, it's great that you have found this site and obviously have a lot of good info and insight to share. However, you may want to be careful giving out particulars about the schools like this - it is a big no no for realtors by law to discuss such details. And while Providence Springs is a great school, others in Char/Meck have the same or very similar scores it does.

Great info so far... We are looking north of Charlotte. Thoughts? Please take a look at my below email for more info.

My family and I may be moving to the Charlotte area in the next few months. I have been looking at the Lake Norman area. Can anyone give me positives and/or negatives about the area? I have done all the statistical research regarding school test scores, housing prices, and crime - but I would love to hear from a local. My kids are elementary and high school age. One with some special needs.
In addition - we are likely visiting the area during our kids spring break. Any ideas on what we should see / do that will help get them excited about moving away from their friends?
THANKS!!!

Seems to me while this thread is a little dated, it was complete with a great deal of information. I am also replying because some of the folks who were considering may now be established in Charlotte and Candice feedback on my questions about good moves or regrets from their move.

That said here is my question. Young family with one child (hoping for more!) we are currentlyin a bit of a depressed area and looking to relocate to an area that is a little more family friendly with things to do and ot have to drive 45 minutes to actually get to some sort of family friendly entertainment. Their test keys for us are: cost of living being affordable, good to great school systems, family friendly, not so much traffic that you cannot go five miles without having to take up your whole day to do it (we lived in DC..enough said). We would love an area that allows us the chance to do things as a family and having lots of kids around is a plus. Any feedback or thoughts are appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Default I'll Agree

I agree - I would love to hear from those that posted earlier and see where they ended up and if they are happy with their decision.

My husband and I may be moving to the area and I found this thread to be very helpful to me. We are empty nesters so the school system itself is not an issue for me but I have found that those areas that have good ones are the better ones to live in as well.

I had been leaning toward the Fort Mill area but also looking in Matthews and this thread helped me lean even more toward the SC side. Since we are planning on retiring in another 15 or so years (and no that is not a long time for you young ones reading) our price range is in the high $100,000s or not much more than $200,000 because we have a second home (our retirement home) at the beach!!!

So if there is anyone that give me some advice on this price range I would love it.

While it doesn't hurt to check the whole area, your final choice should be based on where you will be working, unless you work from home.

Default Work Area

The Providence Road area in Charlotte will be the area in which he is working. As for myself I will be finding work after we get settled.
