I hope that you are able to help me as I know nothing about Charlotte! My husband has to relocate due to his job, so we will be moving to Charlotte from Ohio. Luckily, I don't have to worry about schools as our daughter will be entering into her freshman year of college. I have never been to Charlotte however my husband has been there once for a week. We are looking to move into an apartment to make sure that we get a "lay of the land" before buying a house. We do have 4 cats so that is our only "major restraint".
My husband would like to live near the transportation system and I would too, as I can n longer drive due to my Epilepsy. I would love to be able to live somewhat near a grocery store (within walking distance) but that is not a make or break deal.
What IS the most important thing is being in a SAFE area/neighborhood and that our rent is not too high as we are paying for college tuition along with my awful Doctor bills. :(
(We are also excited about the prospect of new epileptologists/neurologists in Charlotte!)
Thank you so much for your help and knowledge!!
