Hello everyone. I had a long list of things we were looking for in "new place to move". We are checking out Austin, TX in a few weeks but my teenage sons and I feel we will end up in Mint Hill, NC or surroundings. So I have thrown aside my long list and just picked what is really important for us:

Mom wants a relatively safe place to live, housing between $100-$150 thousand. I work at home so can do it with cable/DSL line. I am looking for a SAFE school. Mind you I did not say outstanding in academics. I have a child that would not take advantage of an outstanding education "hey Mom, C's are good".

Boys 13 and 18 want a place to play basketball (they live basketball), youth leagues, adult leagues, pick-up games. My sons have researched themselves and want us to move to the University Area so they can go to Charlotte Sports Center (28269 zip). I like what I have read about Mint Hill.

So does anyone know of the best area/town for basketball and basketball programs and a relatively safe, nice area. Does not have to be Charlotte or Mint Hill necessarily. Please throw me ideas!! We need to move in 8 to 12 months and I need to research and check out. THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR EVERYONE'S HELP AND SUGGESTIONS. Terri

Default Charlotte Youth Basketball

If you're looking for a great youth basketball program here in the Charlotte NC area for your kids - try "Yes I Can Basketball"

My husband and I love this organization - they run leagues and camps year round and the atmosphere is just so uplifiting - we have two boys that train with them - they've gotten just so much better playing - their shooting academy is tops! their website is Yes I Can Basketball

I am short of time at the momemt, so this will not be a complete answer I'm afraid. Bottom line, you will have to plan to spend in the mid $150's and up for what you are looking for in Charlotte. Homes anywhere near $100,000 these days are not ususally in areas you would consider safe. Off the top of my head I would suggest you and/or your kids start looking at living in the neighboring county, Cabarrus. It is still fairly close to the university area but going further out will get you a more affordable home in a safer area. Good luck with your continued reasearch.

oops, just saw the date of the origianal post! Hope by now our op has found his place

Mint hill is nice - I went to Independence - great athletics. Butler is also good - you can find pre exsiting homes in your price range their - just stay close to highway 51 not closer toward Idelwild and albemarle - they are not Bad areas - but you can get a safer place near hwy 51.
