Possible move to the Charlotte area

33 posts in this topic

Anywhere along the sardis/fairview corridor is a great place to live, from Matthews to Cotswold to SoPa.

I've also lived in dilworth and loved it.

Mint Hill has Independence HIgh School....might as well home school you kids or send them to Juvi for school

There is a new high school in Mint Hill.

Has Independence gotten worst? Because I have a lot of friends that graduated from there and they aren't juvs. But i've been hearing its worst now.

Yeah, Eastover can be pricy. Try Grier Heights. Its close to Cotswold.

Isn't Grier Heights behind Loopys? If so I'm pretty sure thats one of the worst places in Charlotte for crime.

It is. It has some decent older homes, but I personally wouldn't want to live there. My whole reason for wanting to live in the older neighborhoods is because they often have walking access to some amenities. Grier Heights doesn't really have that.

As for suburban neighborhoods, I actually like the Blakeney area. There are a good bit of neighborhoods right off of Rea Rd that have access to pedestrian paths and are easily within walking distance of restaurants and shops. It's always nice on a nice spring/summer/fall day to go for a walk rather than get into the car to drive half a mile down the street. You have two grocery stores, two targets, and a decent amount of independent restaurants in this area.

No one has asked where you will be working. What part of town?

That I'm not sure of yet. The move is not definate yet. To not mention any corporate names I work for a large communication company. There are several positions I put in for so I'm not sure exactly where they are. Only know that they are in the Charlotte area.

Grier Heights was a joke.

To be serious, there are a lot of factors to consider. Where you will be working, what you want to spend on rent/mortgage, what size home you want, what you want to do recreationally, etc.

I had always lived in the burbs, but to be honest, the towns i lived in previously didnt have much to offer "in town". We ended up buying near downtown, in an older house with no garage, and paying more than i wanted or thought i would ever pay. We dont regret it. We've really enjoyed living in the city.

I'd reccomend Matthews. Even though the area has grown a TON since I lived around there, it's still got kind of a small town feel. Unless you're a six figure income kinda guy, then I'd reccomend South Charlotte around the Ballantyne/Providence CC area.

South Charlotte, but inside the 485 loop if you want to avoid complete suburbia.

I've always like the area between Providence Rd. and Sardis north of 51. Its not as new and flashy as the new crappy South Char areas, but not as ritzy ditzy as Myers Park.

For just outside of the city, look at Tega Cay. I'd have to agree with who mentioned that earlier.

Well that's my input.
