Oh how I love the Queen City. It’s characteristically historic flavor brought about by vintage factories and streetcar suburbs mixed with a dash of the now up beat urban living. There are condos; high rise building and an art’s districts all combined with the history that is unique makes the neighborhood of Charlotte diverse in nature.
The city is now home to some of the county’s biggest bank. We all know of bank of America and the previously named Wachovia now acquired by Wells Fargo which still maintains Charlotte as its headquarters in the east coast. It is the biggest city in the state of North Carolina of the U.S. It is consistently ranked among the top financial center in the U.S. and is now only second to New York in terms of how much the banking sector makes up for a city’s economy.
Real Estate firms also are very visible in Charlotte and one would find the task of looking for a home in the city is a breeze. One can easily locate houses and lots for sale, businesses spaces for lease should also be part of the offer sheets of most of the real estate agents you will come across with in the city. Rentals in Charlotte NC are also a booming option especially since the growth of careers of the young professionals. The generation of today always wants to be just a stone throw away from where they make their living and the working classes living in Charlotte are no different. This allows them to almost neglect the hassle brought about by transportation and the ability to run about in the same city after a day’s work is another perk of staying in a rental.
After having said all that, this brings us back to the classic question of what is the best setup of living when you’re working. Is it better to grab a house right away once you get the chance or do you settle for a rental first?
For me the answer should be whatever makes you more productive.
Let me give you an example. I hate drinking coffee. We all know that excessive amounts of caffeine a day does more harm to the body than good (more than a cup of coffee a day can already be considered as excessive). We have all read articles and heard countless stories about if it doesn’t affect you right away, it will eventually take its toll later on with life. Substances like caffeine should always be controlled daily. That is why every day; I make a choice whether I should take coffee during working hours even though I’m not so fond of it. There is another thing that happens in the office that I hate just as well though. It’s the sound of my head hitting my desk. The sound is distracting me away from the focus I had with the job plus it hurts a little.
The bottom line is, whatever decision you make, should be for the goal of easing your work even for just a little. So it depends.
