Good morning, Asisson:
Having worked with airline personnel, where you go depends on how close you want to be to the airport and what type of nightlife, entertainment, etc that you want. Uptown and the University area among the more active areas Birkdale (Huntersville), Ballantyne, Southwest Charlotte, East Charlotte less so, and Belmont, Lake Wylie, Concord among the quieter. There are also many suburban locations that within a 30 minute drive of uptown. I would recommend a place with a garage or secured parking. Where you ultimately invest will depend on your monthly budget, credit profiles, amount of down payment and if you are buying instead of renting, how the property is titled. If you buy, I would recommend you focus on newer properties so that the maintenance is lower. You will also need to carefully consider how you hold title to the property and what to do in the event one of you decides they want to sell. There are many options. If you are buying, here are some examples of homes under $200,000 that might work. http://goo.gl/wzzHm
