The Southend area is a vibrant community with a lot to offer, including easy access to the lightrail. It is where I currently live, and I can attest to the benefit of being able to avoid traffic and the other hassles commuting into Uptown. Your budget will be a determining factor of where you end up but there are many options. If you would like to contact me directly I would be happy to assist you in your search.

a lot of this is going to depend on yoru budget. Short term rentals are generally more expensive than yearly leases. I just had a client sell theri house and move into a short term rental for 4 months while their new home was being built and the priced were higher.
The light rail offers a great option for you to go into and out of uptown Charlotte. As a Realtor we are bound by a code of ethics that forbids us form steerign you toward one neighborhood or away form any particular neighborhood or area.
However; I can tell you if it was my wife I would actually try to stay in uptown for the commute. If not I would go into the southern end of Charlotte and have ehr drive to the light rail since parking at the light rail in free and it is a lot cheaper to ride the light rail than it is to park in uptown.
You probably are going to want to look at aprtments.com as a website since they will offer the short term rental option from complexes or rental.com is another one that is very popular among short term lease rental options.

I'd get as close as I could to uptown and look for a complex or unit with a garage or secured parking. If I had to make a trade-off, I'd sacrifice unit size for the secured garage and closeness to Uptown. Much will depend on your monthly housing budget, but if you are planning to buy when they arrive in June, I'd save as much as possible between now and then to maximize your housing options. . Here are some rental sites that might help.
