If schools are a great concern, you may want to investigate the Mooresville area. Mooresville Graded School District is relatively unique in that it is a town with it's own schools, just like the old days. The schools are not part of the consolidated county system. Some parents really like the fact that the system is not so large, and all of the schools are of good quality (I must note that my wife teaches Kindergarten at one of them). The system is embarqing on a high tech path for the benefit of the students and is working with Apple Computers to put computers in the hands of all of the teachers and most of the students, using these along with "Smart Boards" as teaching tools that prepare the kids for learning and working in a digital world. To see more, go to http://www.mgsd.k12.nc.us/mgsd/site/default.asp. The school attendance lines go beyond the city limits, so there are parts that are Mooresville schools and Iredell County. There is a separate school tax added to the property tax to ensure funding of a great schools system.

Hi Cassie, I moved here from the north several years ago and know what you are going through. The best advice I received was to buy in the county to avoid paying both city and county taxes. Also Mecklenburg Cnty has higher taxes than Iredell and tends to redistrict the schools often. My suggestion would be to look in the western and north western part of Mooresville (in the county) or the Troutman (which is where I live) and Statesville area. If you are not working with an agent, I would be happy to set up a web page for you to view of listings in these areas to get you started.

Concord would be a good area. I grew up there but live in Mooresville now. Concord, Kannapolis or anywhere between there and Mooresville would be good as well. You will find a little lower pricing moving north up I-77 towards Troutman and Statesville. The Mooresville market is growing that direction. Check out all the new development around exit 42 for example.

Cassie, concord is a nice area. Some things to consier is drive time to Mooresville depending on your needs. It not a horrible drive but if your kids are invloved in after school stuff etc. there are things to factor in. Back roads from Concord to Mooresville eliminate some traffic bottlenecks but depending on your company. Iredell County Schools and Mooresville City Schools are the systems in Mooresville and surrounding area. You can check my website click on School Reports from the Blogroll on the right sign to get more information.

Cassie,
You can look all over and find something. Mooresville will be a little higher area as you get closer to Lake Norman. Depending on where in Mooresville you workplace is though there are plenty of areas nearby that you can easily find a home for your price range. I grew up nearby and have lived close by so I am familar with the surrounding towns. If you like NC seafood or oysters check out Big Daddy's also

Hi Cassie
You will certainly get a lot more house for your money in Concord and depending the commute could be anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes. Another area to consider would be Troutman,Mooresville is know for their schools especially Mooresville city schools, you could find some homes in and around that price just depending on exactly what you are looking for in a home. Unfortunately I can not give detail information or opinions about the different school but, here are some great website to check out information on schools in the area and will help you to better decide.Also I would suggest once you have narrowed down the schools when you come to the area actually visit the different schools and talk to other parents. Another great site to ask questions on is City data there you will get responses from a lot of local parents as well as proffessional. If there is anything I can assist with or if you would like information on home I would be more then happy to help. Good luck.
