This is really a question only you can answer. Here are things to consider: if your daughter is school age, what school is the apartment or home zoned for? Is that school acceptable to you? Are there children for her to play with in the apartment complex? I can tell you that $650 for a rental budget for a house is not very much. I'm afraid you won't have very appealing choices in that price range. To get into a home in a desirable (not wealthy, just safe and established) neighborhood, you probably need to be able to pay closer to $800-$900 per month in Thomasville. I do have a home on Hasty School Rd. that you might be able to rent for $850 a month, in Hasty-Ledford school district on one and a half acres. It is currently listed for sale at $99,000.
