You all know I'm moving to Charlotte, moving day is July 2014, I need to save as much money as can. I'm looking for rental communities on forrent.com and these places on this site, IMO, are fan- freaking- tastic! Most of them have pools, club houses, fitness rooms all on site! Is this real? Do communities like this exist out there?

I'm in Charlotte. All decent apt communities here have that stuff: polls, clubhouse, fitness, etc.

What area of Charlotte are you looking at (North, east, west, south, etc). I'm in Southwest Charlotte.

I work for a property management firm, so I know a ton of Apt communities. I'd be happy to try to help you.

I'm not really sure, but I am looking for a place for no more than $900 for a 3 bedroom, pets allowed, I'm purchasing a chihuahua, but I'm planning on moving in July 2014, gotta save up and get my affairs in order before I leave nyc

There are some nice places in charlotte but you have to be careful. Some pictures are deceiving. The apartment complex i lived in looks great in the "apartment books" and "website" but they really weren't that great at all......and we had a pool, clubhouse, playground, tennis court!

Definitely avoid the East side, it's very high in crime.
The North is University area.
The South is Ballyntine and beautiful but extremely expensive.

I live near the airport. It's affordable and nice.

Most places are good, but it's difficult to find a 3 bedroom in this area for under $1,000, plus most communities charge pet rent and a non refundable pet deposit.

Just be sure you have good rental or mortgage history and credit an you'll get a minimum deposit.

We're moving to Raleigh from NJ and  i'm LOVING the beautiful options for rental communities and pricing! for a 1 bedroom whole in the wall in an old building over a store here in NJ can cost 1,200 plus utilities can not wait to call NC home in a few weeks
