I hate to start a another relocation thread, but this forum is so helpful and informative!

I'm a recent graduate (female) from the College of Charleston, looking to relocate to Charlotte to take continuing education classes at Johnson and Wales, in addition to continuing to wait tables. I do have a lazy 80lb mixed breed dog, and a cat. Currently I do live in downtown Charleston, SC, in a slightly 'dicey' part of town, so I do have 'street smarts' and am not opposed to a similar area.

I have fallen in love with NODA, but am having the hardest time finding apartments in the area. I would prefer a complex, but am not against other types of properties. Are there other areas and apartments similar to the urban feel of NODA that anyone can recommend? I understand that Uptown is also full of energy, but very pricey. My budget is under $750 for a one bedroom. Thank you!

My husband is a police officer down there, no offense to anyone, I think it's a great area for young/artsie people, but there are areas that can be extremely dangerous. It might be worth looking into another part of town, but it's up to you. Don't know of any complexes down there except for the one's my husband talks about and you definately don't want to live in those. Have you looked at maybe subletting in uptown?

my husband and i are moving to charlotte in a couple of weeks, and we'll be living at highland mill lofts. we loved everything about it, but since signing the lease, we've started to hear things about crime in the complex and nearby. we're both street savvy, and have lived in larger metropolitan areas, so we know that crime occurs, and how to prevent, as well as we can, becoming victims ourselves, but i'm starting to really worry about this. thoughts, southernista?

My main concern with a sublet is finding someone who will be all right with both pets. Generally most people are not too big on pet hair.

Check out Highland Mills apartments in NoDa. I know a girl that lives alone with a big dog. No problems at all.

I'm happy to hear that--I have been looking into that complex in particular. It seems great---but the recent apartment reviews on it are less than sparkling. Thank you for your response.

I am a young single female recent college grad who just bought a condo in NoDa. I haven't had any problems nor have my neighbors said anything. You may have a little problems finding something in that price range. Drive around in the neighborhood and see if you see for rent signs. Also there are some new energy efficient apartments that are affordable. I can't remember the name but they are off of 37th street. They are small but cheap. I hope this helps.
