Hello Folks,

I would appreciate inputs of comparisons between the Mallard Creek area( near Concord Mills) and the Ballantyne area like:

1. Which area is better for buying a home( considering the growth( prices) in the future, etc).

Is anyone aware of any websites that indicate foreclosure rates based on zipcodes?

Thanks

What part of Mallard Creek are you referring to? Can you be more specific than Concord Mills? I'm not aware of much development when you go that far down MC. Or are you referring to the Mallard Creek/Mallard Creek Church area>?

Hmm...I don't think you can even compare the two areas really. Ballantyne is certainly better for future growth of home prices, though it is obviously more expensive as well. Ballantyne schools outperform Mallard Creek schools as well.

I would probably avoid Withrow Downs. However a little further out, you are in Cabarrus county which has better schools than CMS where Ballantyne is located. In terms of anything else, there really isn't much difference. It's all subdivisions and big box retail. Stand on any street in either place and you can't tell where you are.

I would say that Withrow Downs is more closely tied to the University area than Mallard Creek area. That said, its a beautiful neighborhood (at least the older section), but it is really close to the race track. We looked there, before settling on the Highland Creek area. We're significantly further away from the track now and can still hear the races. Granted, its only 3 times a year, but I wonder if you can hear the drag strip in Withrow?

If you are looking for feedback from people that live in the area, I lean more towards this.

In my opinion, Northeast Charlotte is slowly sliding towards becoming the next Eastside. There are already problems with vacant retail spots and foreclosures in the area. Agree with the above, look at Cabarrus county, if you want to be on the north side.
