As others have stated before me, South Charlotte is a great option. Check out my blog to read posts about the top-ranked public schools in this area. I live in South Charlotte (Providence Plantation), and have focused my real estate business on this area, and would be happy to help you discover some of the great neighborhoods, schools, and places to shop, dine and play. There are so many important aspects to a home search in a new area, including talking to a trusted lender to discover your price point and budget, investigating neighborhoods and locations, commute times, proximity to things that are important to you, and then finding a home that will meet your family's needs and will be a great investment. Please visit my website at http://www.MelissaBrownHomes.com or my blog site at http://www.South CharlotteHomes.com to begin your Charlotte discovery process, and call me when you're ready to chat! Best wishes to you and your family!
I suggest South Charlotte. I live in the area. There is a new subdivision just a short drive from SouthPark Mall. The school district is excellent: Olde Providence Elementary, Carmel Middle School, Myers Park High School. See the following: http://www.sheffingdell.org -- a client recently purchased a 4200 Square Foot, 5 bedroom, 4 Bathroom, Fenced Yard with Firepit. All for only $458,000! The homes start in the $357k range, up to $550k. Depending on options.
They chose a full brick, 2 Story, 3 Car garage. For Charlotte, that's a GREAT price for this part of town. It was a custom builder who has other lots available. And there is one under construction now with Master down and 4 additional bedrooms, media/bonus room, screen porch, great room, breakfast room, dining room, den, and kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances.
From what you are saying you probably want to look in South charlotte or by Southpark. That will give you the requiremnts you are looking for in a home. The only question would be how much a month are you looking to spend. That will play a factor in where would be the optimal place for you to live...

Glad to hear you are thinking about coming to Charlotte! There are lots of great areas around Charlotte that are good for families such as yourselves with lots of things to do. My feeling from your description of the things that you are looking for in an area is that you may find more of what you are looking for on the south side of Charlotte, lots of great shopping and things to do with great schools and a low crime rate for the city.
I certainly would be happy to help you in your search if you would like to contact me and that way I can pass on lots of good information and narrow the areas down that would fit you best.
