I am a single female in my late 20's who is moving to the Charlotte area this summer. I can't decide between living uptown or in Huntersville. I have friends that live uptown and also in the Denver/Lake Norman area. I will be renting an apartment or condo. Can anyone give some advice on which location would be better? I have gotten different opinions, but not any good solid positive and negatives of both. Thanks!

It really depends.

Where is your job located?
How much can you afford for rent?
Do you like a more suburban area where you drive everywhere, or does living in the uptown area seem more appealing to you?

I haven't taken a job yet. I am waiting to decide where I want to live. I will either be working in Davidson or Mt. Holly. I want to keep rent under $850. I have never lived in an "uptown" type setting, so I am not sure.

I thinks base on criteria of your friends in the lake area I would choose if I was you the Huntersville area.

Well, that's a new one on me!

You haven't taken a job because you are waiting to decide where you want to live?? Normally, most people take whatever job they can get, THEN see where to live in relation to the job, lol!

I wouldn't get an apartment til I knew which job I was taking. You might not like the commute at all. But as far as recommending an area . . . I would think it would be easier to find something for rent in a great area in Huntersville than uptown (for $850 mo).

Well, I'm not that crazy...I was offered several jobs. I just haven't chosen yet. They are all equal, except for the location.

That is fantastic!

Would you mind sharing your field of work?
Many are struggling to get ONE offer, and you have received several!

Best of luck as you 'move' forward!
