What's the word on Concord? I know little of it; only some basic vital stats, and that there are new neighborhoods coming up. So far, I think I like what I've seen. Anyone live there? Visited there?

We lived there for 7 years. It's a nice town; known more for being a bedroom community to Charlotte. [personal opinion: once that happened we were glad to be shed of the place ]. Has a very strong medical community, decent shopping: most of the Big Box places plus a small mall, and a ~30 minute drive to Concord Mills and all the stores along Speedway Blvd. There is a wonderful historic district, and the town has easy access to Charlotte (down 4 lane I-85 or 4 lane highway 29 -- which you want to avoid during Race Weeks because it runs right past the track). There ought to be plenty of realty to choose from, though you might want to stay away from subdivisions toward the race track. We lived 10 miles from there and could still hear the roar of the engines during the races.

It's lost much of the charm that is comparable to Salisbury, IMO, but most people find it a comfortable place to live.

When we visited the Raleigh area we loved it. But my husband's job opptys came from Charlotte. When he told me that we should consider the Charlotte area, I was extremely against it because we spent a lot of time in the Raleigh area and I felt very comfortable. But he told me in order to have a fair opinion, we should visit Charlotte. Well, we did and I was so nervous because I was afraid that I wasn't going to get that comfort feeling I had when we went to Raleigh. Well, turns out that I did. And I loved the area and are moving down to Matthews within the next month or so.

To your point, it is very important to really visit the areas. See and feel your surroundings to know whether you will like it. It doesn't take just one day; spend a few days in the area. What you see online may not always be what you expect to get. Good luck to everyone making the move!

Matthews is very nice. I love the little town of Matthews. One of my best friends is head of the Chamber out there.
