Looking for suggestion on good residential area to buy a house 200-300k .
Some suggested in ballantyne , but its more than 30 miles from UNCC ,

On that end of the city closest to UNCC my favorite neighborhood is Highland Creek. It has been a solid bet for a very long time

I believe cost of living should be similar to Atlanta. Best of luck with the new job!

Congrats on the job and the move.

Be very careful and do your homework. There are some "iffy" areas around the university so make sure you ask questions here first because agents are not allowed to tell you about bad areas. If you are okay with a little bit of country living, people really like Concord, NC for the good schools and cheaper houses and its really close to UNC Charlotte. If you prefer living closer to the city to be around more shopping, resturants, entertainment, etc. you could check out Southpark. I currently live in Southpark and commute near UNC Charlotte and it takes me about 35-40 minutes during rush hour. Well worth the extra drive time because we really love Southpark.

Rent first then buy. Get to the know the area before you are stuck with it long term. As a previous post said, Highland Creek is an awesome neighborhood. You should be able to afford something there. There is another topic going about Winding Walk. Definately check out the Concord area. Parts of Davidson aren't too far.
