hi, I am currently thinking of moving to the charlotte area, I would like to live nr malls and activities well within maybe 20mins or them, I can only spend about 50-85k on a house and I will need a yard for my 2 dogs, I prefer a ranch style house if possible if not will settle for something else. just wondering if its hard to finance manufactured homes there too. thanks for any info. I've heard rockhill is ok.

You can't get anything in Charlotte for 50-85k. Renting is going to be your option in Charlotte. There are lots of good agents on here who could give you some direction.

As far as the Charlotte metro:

I use allentate.com to search the listings. You may be able to find a small place in Gaston County or Concord....I did a quick search for you and that's what I saw. Anything in Charlotte at that price will put you in, frankly, a dangerous area.

I agree.

You might could find a decent home in a safe area in that range in some of the small towns in eastern Gaston Co. or in parts of Kannapolis (places away from the NC Research Campus).

Kannapolis is fairly low key. Growing but not there yet. However, it's only minutes from everything you said you wanted. I'd hit carolinahome.com and take a look. Kannapolis is an excellent suggestion. Harrisburg too!

Marcelle, in your price range you will be looking at very distant locations, most likely also what you would consider "dead". If you have to be in a bigger city I'd say you should look into renting for now.

So you're not moving to Allentown? Philadelphia?

I am thinking of buying a town house in Lions gate community in S tryon st Dr horton builders?
Is it worth buying at Lions gate ? What is the future of south tryon st especially where lots of new town homes and shops are coming up?
Is there any other better community in S tryon st ?

Kannapolis is right next door to Concord. And I mean right next door; they border one another. And in Concord is the largest shopping mall in N.C. (you said you wanted to be near a mall). It would probably take you no more than 10 minutes to get there from Kannapolis. Another 20 or 25 minutes from there and your'e in downtown Charlotte. Kannapolis is also a short drive (about 15 minutes) from Lake Norman. And with the NC Research Center coming to Kannapolis, I would imagine you'd see your property value increase over time. I think it would be worth taking into consideration.
