They building a lot of new homes right now in Mint Hill. You can get a 1 acre full stone/brick 4000sqft home for around $400k in great location near good schools and day cares. Mint Hill located about 20min from downtown and 15min from UNCC, about 3 min from Matthews and 8 mins from Weddington. Mint Hill has a lot of horse ranches and if you like horses there is a private community for you where you can own a horse. Community will provide u with vet 24/7, they will train and clean ur horse. Goodle "Cheval" if interested. Overall, Mint Hill reminds me of europe because its very laid back with a lot of clear land and ranches.

My Grandmother, before she died two years ago, had a house in the Hidden Valley area off of Sugar Creek.......I wouldn't recommend that area.

Thanks guys. I think i'm narrowing it down to the Mint Hill, Matthews, Weddington area.

BTW., how's the traffic? I know I shouldn't care coming from LA but what is your individual travel times to and from work? Also what is the distance?

ugh, that is like asking people where the best ice cream in the country is, buying a plane ticket, flying, renting a car, driving an hour, then walking up to the counter and ordering a small vanilla cone.

lololol yes.

Weddington is the blandest place I've ever been...and I spent 18 years there.

h0llywood, traffic from Weddington towards downtown will be pretty bad if you are working in or around downtown or southpark.

Traffic is never bad here outside of rush hour though.

I have a wife and three kids. Part of my excitement to move is that I can finally afford to buy myself my Mustang that I got rid of when I had my last child. Day care here in CA costs me $900 a month for a 1 year old.

I'd rather spend 300-400k on a house with 1+acres and a backyard where my kids can run around and be free than live in the city and get fined whenever my dog barks. My wife and I have a lot of optimism and hopes for Charlotte.

I'm gonna go ahead and play realtor...look up the following neighborhoods:

Montibello

Chadwyck

Park Crossing

Mountainbrook

Beverly Woods

None if those neighborhoods are anywhere near the area he is talking about. South Meck HS sucks. I have 2 friends in park crossing and one in Montibelli. Both had to put their kids in private school because they were so unhappy.

Most of the people in our neighborhood work downtown . Takes about 30-40 minutes each way.
