I think the best location for me might be mint hill. I dont want to stay close to one end, being in mint hill might make it 30 min or less to south side or north side and downtown should be 20 min. But let me know which communities are the best in the area.

I am looking for a 4 BR/3Ba with 3000 sqft and 2 or 3 car garage. I would like a bonus/media room and would prefer Union county schools.

I dont want to go above 400k. I would like to stay close to that figure or lesser. Pls let me know the communities that would be a fit and which are 5 to 8 minutes away from the 485 loop.

thanks for your suggestions

If you want Union County schools you can't live in Mint Hill. Mint Hill is in Mecklenburg county. You can live close to it though, just over the border and find many homes in your price range. In particular, I like Shannamara (though half the neighborhood is in Mecklenburg county and has Charlotte school assignments) and Old Sycamore too.

Mint Hill is fine...I would suggest the Mint Hill that is closer to I-485 & Union County rather than the part of Mint Hill that borders east Charlotte.

that comes under indian trail ... correct. can you tell me why indian trail has not developed as much as weddington or waxhaw. they both are deeply burried inside the 521 and 16 corridor and still the prices are high. what is the future of indian trail ? I would like to be in a fairly new neighbourhood.. and i guess shannamara is a older neighbourhood. i checked that and loved the trees and gof course.

i haven't checked old sycamore though, what is the take on emerald lake ?

Old Sycamore was my first thought, I like the Meck side of the development better but that's because it has had a chance to mature. If your on the Meck side I believe you would be part of the Butler Cluster and Piedmont on the Union Co. side.

We looked in that area and could not find much info on Piedmont HS. I have heard good things on Butler but I do remember being concerned with what I read on greatschools.net.

Emerald Lake is a nice looking community. You will be right at very top of your budget. There are 3 homes under 406K. You can always make offers on some of the higher listed homes.

I would suppose that Weddington is more developed because it is much more high end. And also close in to the high end area of Ballantyne too.

I checked on how long it takes sometimes to get back to 485 and it is worst, why would anyone want to buy a 500-750k home and be stuck in traffic during morning commute or did i take a wrong route ?

I took new town to 16 and other morning i took new town to 521.

I suppose most people who make the commute are willing to do so to live where they believe the best schools are and that their families will have the best quality of life.
