Hi SC Nesties! I just posted this on the NC board, but thought I would also try here considering that Charlotte is so close to SC. so:
DH and I currently live in the burbs outside
of Baltimore. I've recently contemplated moving to the Carolinas. One
aunt just moved to Charlotte and loves it. The other retired to Myrtle
Beach. So the area has caught my attention.
I've heard such great things about Charlotte, and wanted your insight. Particularly about the housing market. What is the average house price? Can you get more bang for your buck in your opinion? Also how are the jobs? I know Charlotte has many financial institutions. So I guess that's good news for DH and I. I work for a large money manager in Baltimore. DH does private equity investment banking. Are salaries comparable to other similar cities, say Baltimore, Chicago, Philly? How far are you from the beaches? The mountains? What are the demographics like? What surrounding areas in Charlotte are great places to look at? How is crime (I'm sure less than Baltimore!)?Thanks!!
