In fact, many times, word of mouth comes about and the houses never go on the market - I know of 2 where this happened. One is having some work done before it goes on the market - the moving van was at the house last week and they are gone. No real estate signs have gone up, but there is a keybox on the door. Another one - I have just heard that the family is moving in June. I haven't seen any signs either. You can't get much closer to downtown than this neighborhood.

I would love the information if you could PM it to me. That would be great -- thanks!

I did drive through that neighborhood today and there is a for sale sign on the house of the people moving in June - the street is Eden Wood Ct. I'll send you a message though.

And to answer that question - they are probably saying the same side as me. I don't really see a north or a south side of Independence Blvd as Independence kind of goes diagonally. The easiest way for me to describe it is on the downtown side if Independence - towards Pineville as opposed to Mint Hill. This probably would be considered to be South on a map. I just never look at it on a map.

There are several nice subdivisions off of 51 coming into Matthews from Mint Hill before crossing over 74. Is that where you're saying to avoid?

No need to send the message, I've seen it on the MLS in the past couple days!

There are - and I wouldn't say necessarily to avoid the area. It's just most of the good stuff about what makes Matthews "Matthews" is on the other side of Independence and Independence is a monster dividing road. There are quite a few very nice subdivisions on the Mint Hill side - I just don't know anything about the schools that area feeds into - except the high school - both sides feed into Butler (I think). So I wouldn't say avoid it - I just wouldn't look there myself, but I'm biased. And by good stuff, I mean shopping, town hall, library, Farmers Market, YMCA, parks (lots of them), downtown Matthews, etc.

I'm so happy you are on here Go to Girl, as Matthews is my top pick at the moment (but we have not even gone down there yet!) I'm just so perplexed by everything being a subdivision. I'm not used to that. I love sidewalks, front porches, being able to walk downtown, neighbors that are friendly, getting involved and helping a community. I get the feel that Matthews has this. . . Wondering what Holacondita decided to go with?

We ended up with a 5 year old resale in Stallings (Matthews zip code). We are in Union County. We love it here and we fell in love with the house. While I would love to pick up my house and put it in downtown Matthews, we just couldn't pass up this house itself. We are in zip 28104 and less than 10 minutes from pretty much everything in Matthews that we could need. So happy!

Default Need help Please!

Hello,


I came across this thread and I think I may be in the right place for some help. I am 34, have 4 kids, moving from NJ to the Charlotte area. I'm a banker and am relocating for work. I will be working in Charlotte. My wife and I were down last week looking at houses in Matthews and Indian Trail. We liked a few houses in each town and we are having trouble deciding. With 4 kids, ages 6, 5, 2, and newborn, schools are very important to us as well as community and activities and things like that. Any advice on places to live and avoid would be great appreciated. We don't care about malls or fancy restaurants, we just want a nice big house, 3,000 sq ft, a little yard, .25 or more of an acre and a community pool would be great for the kids.


Thank you so much!
