Good evening, SM:
Where you locate will depend on your target monthly rental payment and required size of unit. If you need 1 bedroom and have $4000 a month to spend, your options will be different than if you need 3 bedrooms and have $1200 a month. Best to find a good property manager and have them help you find the ideal fit. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up.

the Southpark adn the highland creek are two distinctly separate types of areas to live in Charlotte. Southpark has a combination of newer and older homes and is more centrally located than highland Creek. Highland creek offers more of a suburban feeling to it and Southpark is more of an urban living to it.

There are a lot of choices around the Southpark area that you can chose from. part will depend on what it is you are looking for in a house to live. How much space you want and yard and the amenties and neighborhood type fo feel you are looking for. Another factor is goign to be the budget you set up. You have neighborhods borderign and areas surronding the southpark area that range in price as well....

it is best you talk directly with a Realtor about your needs and have them help you narrow your search down.....You can feel free to either call me or e-mail me back and I would be happy to help you out.

Congratulations on your move to Charlotte! I moved from Atlanta several years ago and love it! Both South Park and Highland Creek are great areas with a lot of shopping, dining, and entertainment. Both cover a large geographic area. Depending on where you are going to be working, you need to consider the amount of commute time that you would be willing to undertake. In addition to those two areas, Charlotte has a lot of other wonderful communities that may fit what you are looking for as well. I suggest you interview several different realtors and find the one that meets your needs and that you feel understands you the best. Please feel free to contact me at if you have any further questions or would like some more detailed information.

Congrats on the move to Charlotte. South Park and Highland Creek are two different price points and directions. I currently work in South Park and live in the Ballantyne/Blakney (zip 28277) area. I have a twenty minute drive into work and plenty of amenities close to the house. The Ballantyne/Blakney area has a variety of home price points and good schools. Plus, it isn’t too far from SC – which means much cheaper gas. Hope this helps.

Welcome to Charlotte! You will enjoy living here. Both of the two areas you mentioned have great neighborhoods to call home. You didn't mention the price point you'd be looking in, or if you might be going the rental route. We'd need more information such to give you more in depth suggestions. You'll find good schools in both areas as well.
