We've seen a few on the internet that look like resorts! How can we tell if these are in good areas or not?
Again...the 400-500 range for a nice apartment close to the city...or most anywhere, for that matter, is going to be difficult, if not impossible. Odds are, if it is at that rate and in a community, as opposed to renting from a private owner, most likely it isn't in the most desirable neighborhood.

I am in property management and do alot of market research in Charlotte. What areas is your aunt finding these "resort looking" communities? Is she looking for a one or two bedroom home?

Okay, I thought your aunt wanted to live closer to the city of Charlotte...I didn't realize she was looking in Fort Mill. I'm not terribly familiar with the apt. communities there, but I will let you know if I do find anything out.

Well, it won't take to long for you to research for apartments in Fort Mill (as we only have two to speak of). There will be another to open shortly...but I can guarantee you that it will run more than $400-500 range (just as the other two will).

Thank you everyone for your feedback. I'm still in the job hunting process of our move but when we have something for sure we will definitely enlist the help of a realtor!

We are guestimating that our price range is $125K. Townhomes are definitely an option if we can't find a home in our price range.

Is the University area a bad area? That is the area where the housing seems to be somewhat within our price range.

You can get town homes in the Huntersville area in the $125K range.

The university area has pockets but over all I think its a great area.

Good Luck.

I am looking at moving to Charlotte next year to a rental property my brother owns on cheviot rd. However, I am concerned because I have been reading alot lately regarding the high number of foreclosures/crime in the hembly woods area. I have a young son, and I want to make sure that I would be moving to an area of Charlotte that is safe, family-oriented, and where people care about the appearance of their homes. Any information- good and bad- would be very much appreciated.
