Default Another Northerner seeking guidance!

Hi Everyone...yes I know you've heard the story a gazillion times....but we are from RI, seeking a warmer (I have fibromyalgia), friendlier little spot to settle into. We are in our 50's and our youngest is 14 (homeschooled..for now). We have looked from New Bern to Raleigh to Winston-Salem to Charlotte. The latter being our favorite. It just feels like home. So we have visited all the towns east of Charlotte, liked the towns, but we are having a really hard time with the sub-divisions, primarily lacking in acreage, and hearing our neighbors sneeze. We have come upon a great house in Lincolnton. Any thoughts? We know it's rural that's okay, we are used to that. But is it a depressed area? Homes are valued very low. There appears to be some shopping, and Hickory/Gastonia for the best in retail. I guess our main concern is your thoughts on the growth and safety of the town itself. The house we are looking at is in Boger City. Thanks to all of you for your input!

We have a couple of transplants who live in Lincoln County. They might be able to tell you about Boger City from the transplant view.

The three NC counties west of Charlotte (Gaston, Lincoln, & Cleveland) were all hit hard by the textile mill closures, before & after the economy collapsed. Each county is working on reinventing their economy.

If you plan to work from home you can pretty much live wherever suits you. Will you be looking for a job? Do you intend to use a public high school? If so, check here. AYP Results (http://www.dpi.state.nc.us/nclb/abcayp/ayp/ - broken link)

For acreage west of Charlotte, if commuting to Charlotte is the aim, Lincoln County is a good place to look. Also Kings Mountain, on the Cleveland County side (if schools will come into play) & Clover SC. South of Gastonia are some more rural areas as well, in Gaston County.
