Hey Everyone. It's official...I am relocating to Charlotte at the end of May 08. I will be working in South Park but would like some suggestions on what city/communities to check out. We have a 5 year old who will be stating kindergarten next school year so a good elementary school is important. My husband and I have been pretty partial to north Charlotte, i.e. Huntersville, Mooresville, etc. We are looking at new contruction only at this time in a great family friendly community.

I hear that there are areas in Gaston Co that are ready to explode as well...Tree Tops Community is one we keep hearing about.

We will be there Jan 15-20 to look around and check out some areas. Any suggestions, comments, thoughts are welcomed.

Thanks!

There are numerous nice neighborhoods close to South Park. It all depends on your price range and what you need in a home. It would be a good idea to look online before you come down to get a idea of what's available. You would want to look in Area 5.

We are looking at spending $350,000 to $400,000. I am hoping to get a 4 bedroom with a gourmet kitchen. We are also looking at getting something on approx .25 acres minimum.

You might want to consider Fort Mill, Tega Cay, and Lake Wylie in South Carolina. Lower Taxes than NC and highly rated school system. All have an easy commute to the Siuth Park area.

I agree. I like Huntersville and if you were working in Uptown I would suggest that area, but being that you are going to be south of the City, I don't recommend the commute. Tega Cay is very nice but getting a bit pricey (IMHO for the area). You can get more for your money in Fort Mill.

South Park is one of the most desirable areas to live in all of Charlotte. Since you will be working there it would be a no-brainer in my book to live there too WHY would you want such a horrible commuting headache by working there and living in Mooresville???? In your price range you will find some nice homes much closer to South Park.

OK, I get the point....stay away from north Charlotte if I am working in South Park.

What about Gaston Co? Specifically Stanley or Mt Holly? Is that still too far?

You guys could also rent a very nice townhome in Phillips Place there (right accross the street from Southpark) for a year. Then during that time shop for a home (maybe score on a forclosure in the area! ). Least that way your not rushing into something..
