The area in question in Huntersville called Skybrook North located on Huntersville-Concord road. Is this area in good, ok, or great location as far as travel convenience to places, stores, etc.
Thanks!!

So, three homes getting broken into once in January makes it a bad neighborhood?

Is this area a crime area?I had heard it was a upscale but modest neighborhood that was in a safe respected area of Huntersville Please let me know if I was misinformed because we are looking into that area to live with children! I also heard that it's location was desirable beacuse of it's proximity to great stores and closeness to main town area of Huntersville. I hear so much. I need facts. A beautiful homes means nothing where safety is an issue!!! Is it's locationalso a negative beacuse it has easy access for crime?

I don't know the area, but hoping someone would respond with more information, rather than just a link to some crime from seven months ago. Every neighborhood has had some break-ins at some point I am sure.

This is true in the last year unfortunately. And in the metro area the nicer neighborhood you live in, the more you have to worry about

I think the area of the county where Skybrooke is located is a nice one, but it's close proximity to the mall may have attracted people to it who now realize they can make easy getaways back onto the interstate, or just disappear in with mall traffic.

So there have been more than just this one incident seven months ago?

I don't live on that end of the county so I am not as familiar and can't say for sure. Like I said previously, all the nicest parts of the metro area have been targeted at one point or another in the past year or so.

For areas in Charlotte you can check out the crime map from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department. For other towns like Huntersville or Mint Hill I recommend calling their police departments directly to ask about crime in particular neighborhoods - they will be happy to tell you the stats.
