Hello,
I was looking at homes for sale in Charlotte on the web and wanted some input on places with zip codes: 28212,28213,28214,28215,28216,28174. What about Gastonia and Wingate? They seem to have some nice homes. What zip codes should I consider? I appreciate all feedback. Thanks.

That's a huge swath of Charlotte Can you whittle it down a bit? Is there one or two places you are most interested in perhaps?

Hi,
There are many nice neighborhoods in the Charlotte area-including Gastonia and Wingate. If you can give me an idea of the your price range, the type home, and what is important to you--amenities, schools, etc., I can provide you with more meaningful information. Thanks and look forward to hearing from you.

My price range would be no more than 150k. I'd rather go a little cheaper than that actually. I do have kids so schools are important also. I plan to look for work in a hospital as an RN but I basically want something in a good neighborhood with a nice amount of space.

Would you consider a townhouse? For that price range, a nice house/good school combo might be otugh.

Well, my daughter will be going to high school soon and I don't really want a townhouse. Now the houses I've seen look pretty nice but I'm more concerned about the areas.

Your best bet is to look at one of Charlotte's neighboring cities and not Charlotte itself. I would recommend Concord in Cabarrus County, just northeast of Charlotte. Zip codes are 28027 and 28025.
