You might want to read the Trulia Blog series "How to Choose a Neighborhood" (link below) .

We know a couple without children who lives there and think it is a nice stable area. For many buyers and renters, which school attendance zone the home is within is very important. If you have a specific Mecklenburg County address and want to know which public school children living there will attend, there is a handy Mecklenburg County School Lookup site in the Trulia Blog "Which areas surrounding Charlotte would be a nice place to relocate?" http://goo.gl/V8aOK If you have school age children, I suggest that you check addresses against this link and determine if the schools are going to serve your child's educational needs.

If you don't have a buyer's agent and would like representation, it wouldn't cost you anything to use me!
