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

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.
