Before you even start your home buying search, you’d want to know which area to move to. Several factors can influence the choice of place such as demographics, nearby schools, amenities, local community, and more. If you’re considering moving to Sardis Woods, Charlotte, there are several ways for you to identify if Sardis Woods is a good fit for you.
The demographics of a place can be a fair indicator of how ‘neighborly’ a place is.

The total population of Sardis Woods is 6,096, the median age is 36 years, and the average household size is 2.3.
Quality of life is subjective and can depend on a variety of things. While some home buyers might want a walkable city that offers ample things to do closer to where they live, others might prefer the suburbs with their tranquil streets, peace and quiet, and proximity to open spaces and nature. For some, the idea of being car-dependent is unacceptable, while for others, a reasonable drive time to their favorite weekend hangout is a dream come true.
Taking that into account, it would be great to know what amenities are available in the neighborhood, and whether you can complete most of your daily tasks on foot. Sardis Woods, Charlotte has a walk score of 12, a bike score of 18, and a transit score of 24. Almost all errands require a car.

The definition of a good school can vary depending on what people are looking for - some might be interested in schools which have great sports programs, while others might be looking at schools that are better at preparing kids for higher education. Since perspective can make a difference, independent bodies like Niche assign ratings to schools and are commonly used by parents to make a decision. However, you are encouraged to verify these ratings through other sources including visiting the campus.
It is not surprising to note that places with highly-rated public schools tend to have relatively higher home prices because of the perpetual demand for those neighborhoods. If you have children or plan on having in the future, checking out the nearby schools and their ratings is a good idea. Chantilly Montessori School (#291 in state), Elizabeth Lane Elementary School (#221 in state), Park Road Montessori Magnet School (#224 in state) are among 6 A+/A/A- rated public elementary schools in the district. Randolph Middle School (#24 in metro), Crestdale Middle School (#35 in metro), Waddell Language Academy (#27 in metro) are among 5 A+/A/A- rated public middle schools in the district. Charlotte Engineering Early College (#18 in metro), East Mecklenburg High School (#31 in metro), Providence High School (#10 in metro) are among 4 A+/A rated public high schools in the district.
Choosing an area with good school rating consistency is important. While the area you’re looking at right now might have great elementary schools for your young children, it’s well worth examining the middle and high schools they’ll grow up to attend. The nearby elementary school, middle school and high school quality ratings from Niche are very similar. If you have children and desire a consistent school experience as they grow up, this neighborhood may be a good place to plant long-term roots.
For households with kids, accessibility to nearby parks, playgrounds, daycare centers as well as highly-rated preschools is key. There are a few parks and playgrounds in Sardis Woods, Charlotte, including James Boyce Park, Olde Providence Elementary, and Stumptown Park. These playgrounds provide great recreational facilities for kids, as well as adults. Families can enjoy a nice picnic under the shade in summer months, or walk along the trail for a weekend activity with the kids.
Proximity to good daycare centres is extremely important, especially if the parents have a full-time job. For young families there are plenty of options for childcare in Sardis Woods, Charlotte, including Childcare Network (formerly Matthews County Day), The Goddard School, Charlotte Jewish Preschool, and Sunrise on Providence. Proximity to urgent care centers such as Presbeterian Urgent Care Matthews, CHS Urgent Care - Matthews, and Novant Health Urgent Care is also a plus.
Whether a neighborhood is a good place to live or not could also depend on the nearby amenities. Having a high walk score means that there are a lot of places nearby like stores, restaurants, coffee shops, schools, and more. While the scores are by no means perfect, they are a good indicator for "stuff to do" around those places. Things like proximity to grocery stores, dining options, and parks can make a huge difference in your daily lives.

There is one important indicator of knowing how good the neighborhood is - the number of homes sold in the past. A high percentage of homes sold in the past say, 5 years could indicate that it’s an up and coming neighborhood with people looking to settle here. At the same time, a neighborhood with low home sales, in spite of getting listed on the market could indicate that current residents are looking to move out. It would be nice to speak to residents of this neighborhood to understand what they loved, or didn’t like about living here.

You can also look at several other factors before deciding to make the move. For example, do all the houses in the neighborhood look almost identical? That could mean that the homeowners association might not be the most adjusting. Is there space for parking? Where would your friends and family park when they come to visit you? Your garage could already be full with your own vehicles. How well is the neighborhood maintained? It could help you identify whether you’d want to live next to such neighbors.
