So you’ve decided to make the transition and move to Charlotte, North Carolina. Congratulations! Moving is a big step, and we’re quite certain that you won’t be disappointed by all that Charlotte has to offer.
But the Queen City can be an intimidating place. The real estate market moves fast, especially in a city like Charlotte that’s currently growing at a rate of 0.34% annually. If you’re looking for a bit of professional advice before the big move, then you’ve come to the right place. There are some things you should know ahead of time that will make your relocation as smooth as possible.
First, Charlotte has been described as several smaller cities in one. Each district has its own distinct culture with its own community. From the fast-paced heart of the city to the suburbs nestled on and around the outer belt, you can find a neighborhood that matches your personal tastes. Uptown offers a true urban experience in the city’s business district, and apartments available for rent are often within walking distance of social and professional opportunities. NoDa is the city’s trendy art and food district, catering to people who enjoy a cultural experience. Suburbs like Concord and Huntersville provide a slower pace of living that is still only a short drive from the downtown area.
Second, it’s important that you pick a location that aligns with your lifestyle. Do you have a job, and will you need to commute? Do you have kids that will need to go to school? Which school district should you choose? How far away are the essentials like grocery stores and doctor’s offices? These are all things to consider and research as you select the ideal location for your Charlotte home.
Finally, carefully consider your budget. Real estate in Charlotte is in high demand, which drives prices higher than normal. It’s recommended that you make a list of your needs and wants when it comes to a rental space. You may have to sacrifice some of your wants if it means finding the ideal property and staying within your predetermined budget.
