I really Highland Creek bc of the amenties, but I really love the charm of the homes in Gilead and Crosswinds so I'm a bit torn.
I just bought a house in a neighborhood about 1 minute past Gilead Village (in the Henderson Park neighborhood). I was interested in Gilead Village at first, but ultimately decided against it because of the small yards. Will you want a yard to play in? Also, there are major power lines running right over some of the houses I think.

Henderson Park is in your price range, with some houses actually under it.

Commute-wise, I work in uptown in the BofA tower, and the commute ranges from 20-35 minutes depending on what times you are the road. In bad weather, it seems to take 35-40 minutes. Gilead Village should be identical to this.

Another vote for Highland Creek. I live on the Concord Mills side and my wife and I love it.

The race happens 2 times in a year, so it is not bad at all. During the race week it gets a little worse around the exits leading to race areas. But otherwise it is a nice city with average traffic. It depends on where you are moving from, if you are moving from a big city like NY, DC area, Chicago, California Cities and So.. traffic is lot less. If from a small city then you might feel it is a little more crowded.

But charlotte is not a huge city, It is occupied heavy in certain pockets than others.
