Hello

I posted the question below in the SC forum and I got helpful responses about some apartments in Fort mill
I would like to see if you guys have information about places in the NC side

"I recently moved here from the Midwest for my new job in Fort Mill. I currently live with relatives in Matthews.

I am a single guy, mid twenties and I am looking for a 1 BR place near my work. I still haven't changed my old drivers license or my car tag because I haven't decided if I want to stay in NC or SC

Could you please let me know about your experiences or knowledge about apartments in Pineville, Ballantyne, Tega Cay, or Fort Mill. I would like to stay in the $650 range.

Reading online reviews about some of the apartments have been horrifying lol
My two concerns are noise and bugs lol I think I can deal with most other issues

The apartments that I considering to visit are:

landmark at chesterfield
berkshire place
Peachtree place (I like that no pets are allowed)
millcrest park

Also is there any advantage in living in SC as opposed to NC?

Thank you in advance"

Things are cheaper in SC, especially gas. But rush hour traffic to/from Fort Mill sucks. Maybe something off 485/Tryon? I'm not really sure what apartments are there but it would be Charlotte not Pineville. Might be cheaper.

If you work in SC, live in SC. income taxes will be cheaper too! I wouldn't live here in NC if I worked in SC.

Don't have any suggestions but take those reviews with a grain of salt. If you are sensitive to noise, ask to see the apartment you will live in at the latest time slot possible (ideally around 5-6) so you can see if it's too noisy for you during rush hour, people coming home, kids running around etc. Drive through at night and look around.

I work in SC and live in NC. They take SC state taxes out of my paycheck. My coworkers that live in NC told me that they always get a refund from SC and turn around and pay their NC state taxes, that it was not a problem.

I've done it the last two years, it's cheaper to live and work in SC vs living in NC and working SC. Never said it was a problem?

Right but if they lived and worked in SC, it would be cheaper overall.

But then I just remebered the tax cut that NC did, so I'm not sure now actually.

I work in NC and live in SC.

Based on last year's taxes it was practically a wash.

When I worked in NYC and lived in NJ, it was the same thing. It's not a big deal except the paperwork of having to file state returns.

If I worked in SC, I'd stick to living in SC. I live right on the border, near Pineville and would NOT want to live in Pineville. It's a traffic nightmare.

I lived in Pineville some 10 years ago. Stay away! It's a pit. Traffic is horrible, upkeep of roads is horrible. There are lot's of low income apts (not to offend anyone) but the crime is a bit higher.

Ft Mill is a much nicer community.

Berkshire Place is higher than $650- I was there yesterday and a one bedroom was $760.

The rent rate changes everyday I was told.
