Good morning Donna,
Sedgefield or Southend is a great area that is in the process of change for the better. Many people have renovated houses in this area, changing the look of the subdivision. The access to interstates is great, light rail nearby, close to Central Charlotte. When I found a rental for one of my clients, she said that it had a good vibe. I saw many people in their 20's walking dogs when I was there. For the specific demographics, you can check plenty of websites now. It is relatively easy to re-sell or rent in this area. I would suggest staying away from heavily traveled roads if possible.
You might like the Mallard Creek area of the University too. Colvard Park and Chatham are particularly nice, a good value for the money. Don't worry if you don't see a house in a subdivision that you like because there are plenty of sellers ready to market and move. They are just waiting for the right time.
