Looking to move to North Carolina Boone, Banner, Elk or anywhere in this area. I have picked these two areas because it seems to have the most average snowfall also cooler weather in the summertime being that I have been in Florida after 25 years. I have found some very nice cabins in the $175,000 price range on my own with acreage . I seem to be having a problem with realtor's getting back with me and I wonder if it because it's only $175000 my starting price???? I'm retiring soon and I'd rather have money to do other things that I want to do and as I said I have found half a dozen at this price. I hope possibly that a realtor sees my question and can get back with me for some help because I know there's other surrounding towns that I'm just having a problem finding. ... more

South Charlotte or Uptown seems to be a favorite of single people of all ages who do not mind paying ridiculous prices for starkly ugly apartments.

Cornelius has several 55+ communities. That is just north of Charlotte in the Lake Norman area. If you prefer south of Charlotte, Sun City is in Fort Mill, SC. There are many others, as well. Depends on your desire for location, activities, conveniences. ... more

Nicholas Krop answered:
From my experience, it certainly isn't impossible to close close quickly and while still overseas. It just really all depends on the landlord.

All documents and applications can be signed either electronically or by hand (printed, signed by hand, scanned and emailed or faxed) and will be sent back to the realtor you decide to use. The realtor would be either the listing agent of the property or one who solely represents you (a buyer's agent).

What a landlord will require (typically) is a rental application that gives general information about you, the tenant, and a credit/background check. If your credit and background check come back to the landlord's liking, they will usually rent it to you as soon as you can move in (they do not want their rentals sitting unoccupied; so the sooner, the better for landlords).

What you will need to pay is the fee for the credit and background check, a security deposit (which cannot exceed two month's rent, and is typically equal to one month's rent), and either a proration of the rent due for the remainder of the first month you will be renting or the first month's rent (sometimes also the last month's rent).
All-in-all, rentals can go as fast as a week or two, which is preferable for landlords.

Hope this was helpful!

They probably want to know what your CURRENT income is. In other words, they want you to have a job and to know if you can afford to pay rent now. If you don't have a job yet in the new town, do you at least have $$ saved up so your can pay for several months rent in advance? ... more

Greensboro is my favorite place to live. I have traveled all over the world, but there is no place quite like home. I can be in Wrightsville Beach sipping a mojito in less than 3 hours, I can ski in the mountains in around 2 hours, we have amazing food...and we are becoming one of the best named cities for local breweries. Our Greenway is expanding, and so is the health of our city. As a cancer survivor, we have some of the BEST hospitals and cancer centers (and Duke and Chapel Hill are an hour drive). There has been a big shift to fresh and local, and as both my husband and I both own local businesses, I feel like this environment truly nourishes the small business person. We have 5 colleges and Universities packed into one city, and our rent rates are better than ever. Our real estate never took the gigantic crash that many cities had, and many of our zip codes are appreciating in value. Our property tax is reasonable, our city services are pretty stellar, and our magnet school system is top notch. My eight year old step son is fluent in Spanish! So for me, I vote for Greensboro! I hope that helped.
