I'm a soon to be retired NYC employee (less than 4 yrs to go & counting) but looking to relocate the family sooner than later. I've narrowed it down to the Charlotte and Fort Mill area.
I have 2 kids who will be entering jr/middle school when they move down. My daughter is in the Gifted and Talented program and my son is in a dual language program here in the city. I know they don't have dual language in NC/SC but anything on G&T in Fort Mill? The FM school ratings on Great School have impressed me very much!
Honestly I'm weary of HOA but it seems everything in FM is in a development. I've read those news stories about homeowners getting arrested for having brown grass, etc. I'd appreciate any opinions you may have on HOA's. What should I look for in a HOA etc?
Can any uniformed retirees answer my pension questions? How are our pensions, VSF & deferred comp payments taxed? From what I read it looks like I'll be paying 7% in income tax. How does property taxes & some vehicle tax (?) work here?
How's the GHI coverage there? I read CMHS in Charlotte accepts GHI any providers in the Fort Mill area?
Any areas in York County I should avoid?
Thanks everyone for your help. We look forward to moving out of the hustle and bustle of the city!
