My fiance and I are looking to move, and we fell in love with NC. I graduate soon with an accounting degree and my fiance works for the government in the accounting field.
We like the Charlotte area because of convenience. But I like small towns, yet I want to get in the public accounting field, and my fiance wants to stay with the government. What small towns outside of Charlotte do you recommend?
Also, how is traffic there? Gas prices? Taxes?

There is Matthews. As for gas prices, well here in the eastern part of North Carolina they are running about $2.779, $2.879, and 3.079. It might be slightly higher in the cities.

Question Move to NC?

We too are moving to NC. We just listed our home and are terrified we will end up in a horrible area. So many of the listings show beautiful, traditional or craftsman-style home at obscenely low prices but trying to find out about an area is taboo to real estate agents. We want at least 1 acre, 3 bedrooms and under $80K. We found some nice manufactured homes in Nash County about 15 minutes from Nashville on hwy 58. Can you tell me anything about the area or would you advise any others? We have family in Sanford.

Thanks

Looking at my NC state map from Nashville to Sanford would be approx an hour? Just guessing. Looks like the Raleigh area would be closer. I would talk to your family that is already in the state. Also check out the city and chamber of commerce websites. They have all kinds of stats and info, don't forget to check out the job market.
