Can someone please, with Details, tell me specifically what is wrong with Peach Tree Hills? I have lived in the community for the past year. What makes it so bad? I have a great job. I work from home a couple of days a week so I see the neighborhood during the day and night. I don't see why people are acting like it is so bad.

This was just two years ago.

I cannot say there are not good people who live there but it obviously is not somewhere I could purposely CHOSE to live. Especially when there are many other neighborhoods that donít gets this kind of negativity posting in the news.

I have lived in a neighborhood in Ballantyne for 11 years now and I have never heard or any drama or crime hears. The schools I think are a direct result of the type of neighborhood you might live in. If the school is ranked in the top 3 in Charlotte it is more likely there is less crime and vandalism.

I too have lived in Peach Tree Hills for less than a year. I guess I got lucky and moved in after the neighborhood was repaired. The community now is nothing like what i just read in the old news reporting. It's sad to read that the neighborhood had a bad history. But, I'm impressed by how well it was turned around. I'm sure due to people like me who are hard working homeowners who work hard to take care of their family and upkeep their home.

Surely this message from "Tiff" is a plant -- either by a hood who is trying to scare off people so they can turn the neighborhood into a drug haven, or by a crooked company who is trying to discourage families from buying so they can buy up empty houses for really cheap prices.

My sister and her family lived on Crandon Drive 10-15 years ago and it was a lovely neighborhood. My prayer is that it will continue to be a good place for families to live.

I'm looking at buying a 4 brm house in this neighborhood. We are a family of 4, soon to be 5 and currently renting in S. Charlotte. My husband and I made the decision that I would stay at home while the children are young. I could work... I have a 4 year degree, but I choose not to so that I won't miss out on my children's lives while they are young. No judging... it is just a personal decision. Anyway - with the VA loan my husband can get, and the prices of some of the houses in the neighborhood, this looks like a really affordable buy and could get us out of our tiny apartment and into something that will be big enough for our family for the long haul. I am asking residents of this neighborhood ONLY (no Tiffs). What do you think? Is there a lot of theft and breakins? Or is it just wannabe teenage hoods wandering around? Is it a safe enough place for a woman to be at home with her kids at night?(My husband works nights) The financing opportunity looks fabulous for us, but I don't want to get myself into something that I will regret. Thanks!

To update my last post, I used to live in this neighborhood. I'm glad that I was able to sell my home. Unfortunately, there are just too many trouble-makers in the neighborhood. On average there are about 100 residential break-ins per year and there are only about 140 homes in the neighborhood. So, the chances of "your" home being broken into is very high. After living there for 2 years - my home was broken into. The value of the homes have decreased by over 50%. I would not recommend buying in this neighborhood.

Loans were given out to people who could not afford to purchase a home. These are people who are not good money managers. The consequences of ignorance.
