In the next several years into NC? Why or why not?

We are. College choices for in state tuition for the kids and the traffic in Fort Mill is out of hand.

Only if I lose my job and have to live under a bridge. More bridge options in Charlotte.

NC was a great move from PA for us. Would chose maybe Wilmington or up the coast next time. Ashville is nice, too.
Not Charlotte.

I would say no. I don't think that you could pay me enough to move into North Carolina. No area is perfect and South Carolina has it's own issues; but the stuff that comes out of the NC State House and from the Charlotte / Mecklenburg City/County council just make it to where I would never want to live in North Carolina.

No plans whatsoever. If I move, it'll be to a place in which I plan to retire and spend out the rest of my days - NC is not on that list.

I have no idea why anyone would want to. Crime is getting out of hand in the Charlotte area, the schools in Mech Co are a MESS and have been for years, traffic will be WORSE with all these toll roads, taxes go up up and up, the local government is corrupted, and the state just went through a massive issue with HB2 that will see issues down the road for years due to lost revenue and bad PR.

The private sector has quickly forgotten about HB2 (because at the end of the day they didn't care, were just pretending for PR).

It took just a few weeks after the HB2 repeal for the NBA to award Charlotte the NBA All Star Game:

A tech firm, Infosys, announced a 2,000 person office in Raleigh:

Credit Suisse is relocating jobs to Raleigh, likely up to 2,000 people:
Credit Suisse MD says jobs moving from NYC to Raleigh, NC on schedule

AXA Advisors is adding 500 additional jobs to their Charlotte hub:

All in all, things cleared up pretty fast and the job announcements and sporting events returned.

This is not something we would do for several years until our youngest is out of high school. We are thinking about the Belmont area, so not Mecklenburg. We are already paying county and city taxes as we live in the township of Fort Mill, so although our taxes will go up, it wouldn't be by a huge amount. Would be worth it if we buy a less expensive home.

DH is also interested in moving to Greenville, but would have to find another job.

I did.

The reasons why I moved to NC from SC:

Parks. Glencaryn Garden is an unusual feature in York County, and it's something to be proud of. But Gaston has a greater number of parks, and IMHO, parks in NC are better developed than those in SC.

Towns. Yes...I know that Fort Mill has a little downtown, as does Rock Hill, as does Clover. Gaston cherishes it's small towns. Gastonia is dead, but several towns within Gaston are thriving and are precious. Gaston's history shines through, while many areas in York County were once farms. Character, charm, and history versus more modern developments.

Customs. York County varies greatly from town to town, but many areas have a transient feel, and "small town" customs are no longer the norm in many places east of Clover. Things are changing in Gaston, but in many areas the norm is still "thank you Sir" or "No Ma'am."

Overdevelopment. NC gives greater thought to the way it designs it's infrastructure. (Improvement needs to be made in NC, but I believe it's better than SC)

Overall, my list is largely dependent upon a person's station in life; where they live, and the needs of individual people. Clover & Fort Mill's schools, for example, are a tough act to follow. Plus, the above list doesn't apply to *all* of York County. But for my specific needs ...
