My family and I are transplants from New York. Steele creek is a great area for people who are moving to Charlotte. It is very family friendly and has great schools. Its located in southern Charlotte which is nice because you're minutes away from Lake Wylie SC and Fort Mill SC. It is also 20 minutes from uptown Charlotte!

It is a fast growing area not too far from Uptown Charlotte. The main characteristic that I wanted to point out is the fast urbanization. There is a lot of development going on. Me personally, I prefer a very urban environment in which I can walk to places rather than driving where I want to go. Steele Creek is slowly becoming that but still far from it. I believe the school system in my opinion is one of the weakest factor. It's not bad but isn't great either from my experience. In conclusion this will likely become a more prominent area in the future, especially with amount of transplants moving in from out-of-town.
I've lived in Steele Creek for almost 7 years. The real estate market is booming here and the value of my home has surged since I bought it a few years ago. Love that the neighborhood is family friendly and the access to shopping, grocery stores and restaurants.
