Cornelius has several 55+ communities. That is just north of Charlotte in the Lake Norman area. If you prefer south of Charlotte, Sun City is in Fort Mill, SC. There are many others, as well. Depends on your desire for location, activities, conveniences. ... more

Areas are all about personal preferences, budgets, wants, needs, lifestyle; therefore consider researching areas of interest on your own, and take the time to visit more than once, then determine where your comfort level can best be reached; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you. if schools are a concern, perhaps the links below may be of help...

Charlotte is certainly the place for you! The mountains are close and offer a lot of opportunities for outdoor adventures. Also, the city is very young and offer plenty of business opportunies considering all the big compaines located in Charlotte.

A big plus is that Charlotte has plenty of great Churches!

I would be more than happy to help you out. Charlotte has a ton of great locations but you have to be picky or you will be sitting in traffic on your am or pm commute if you work outside of the home. Schools are also an important decision if you have children.
I'm a Realtor who lives in South Charlotte and works in the Uptown and South Park area so I am familiar with many different areas/neighborhoods. I would love to work with you.
Let me know if I can help.

dave answered:

moving to the Charlotte area and wanting to be within a 45 minute ride of the airport does open some possibilities for you.

A website to visit to check on schools would be this has independent reviews of the schools from parents adn how they are rated.

Looking for that "mayberry" town feeling with good schools you are going to have to venture outside of Charlotte. Other areas to consider would be Mount Holly, Huntersville as well as toward Waxhaw, Weddington and Inidian land area of South Carolina. Or you can go outside of the west side of charlotte and head toward Matthews, indian Trail, Wesley Chapel area which will give you that look and feel of small town with great schools. There are a lot of choices all within a 45 minute ride to the airport....

A lot will also depend on what you are budgeting for a home and what you are looking for in a home. I recommend you get in touch with a Realtor and go over your needs and wants and then start looking at places in those areas....

Hey Angela!
I was sifting through previous questions on Trulia and came across yours. Please contact me directly with a bit about how you are doing with your move as I'd love to help you find that 'non-cookie cutter home'. I will also be purchasing a property myself this year and am on the same page and know of a few good communities!

P.S. Welcome to Charlotte!!!

We play ball just about every weekend at Martha Rivers park. I know Gastonia well. There are many areas around Charlotte that would be convenient for you to the airport but also a good place to get renters. I would start in Ballantyne, SouthPark or close to uptown for roommate situations.
