Belmont - Mt. Holly would be hard to beat for convenience to the airport and much less congestion. No way I'd live in Concord or Huntersville, etc. and commute that far every day if I didn't have to. Unless you just enjoy sitting on I-77 and wasting $$$ on gas!

I appreciate everyone's help in this issue. I am aware unemployment rates are very high all over the country. Oregon is very high right now but it is dropping a little like everywhere else. The cost of living in Charlotte looks to be a little lower overall than Oregon is. Housing seems to be a lot cheaper. I am looking around South Charlotte for houses right now. Do a lot of the local realtors have houses available for rent? Mostly I've been looking on craigslist and rentals.com. But if there are listings elsewhere, I'm curious to see where. Thanks again!

A lot of rentals have signs out front too. I know there are at least three in my neighborhood.

Would be only 5-10 minute commute to airport, and also easy access to uptown or most other parts of city where you might find a job, like uptown or southpark. Even short reverse commute to north or south of city. Maybe less likely to get 2-car garage, I guess.
I live in Sedgefield, and while I love it, it takes approx. 20 minutes to get to the airport with no traffic. Just wanted to make sure you can gauge your potential commute time accurately
