My husband and I moved from the DC area to Charlotte in 2006. (We lived in DC for 6 years after we graduated from college.) Anyway, to make a long story short, we loved DC but couldn't afford it after I didn't work during my pregnancy. So... we moved to Charlotte, liked it originally, but not so much anymore. However, we've built a house in the first phase of a new community that was doing well, but in the last 7 months or so, things have really slowed down and they're having a hard time trying to sell land/houses in the last phase of this community.

We have a plan to move back to the DC area, and plan on putting our house on the market early Spring 2010, with hopes of moving back to DC by Summer 2010. I guess my question is, are we thinking logically????
I don't want to remain in Charlotte longer than 2010, but fear that we may have to due to poor real estate and the economy.

Anyone have any comments, suggestions, ideas???

I dont believe your being too optimistic, being that its Charlotte. Seems to really be the "hot place" to move right now, you'll get it sold.
