Altimere off of Hollins Road has some really pretty patio homes . very near the roanoke county line in botetourt county. These are 2 or 3 bedroom patio homes with 2 car oversized garages. there is a HOA for the lawn maintenance, etc. Not too far f rom Cloverdale. Square footages run around 1500 to 1800 i think. There is also a new cluster group off of Read Mountain Road just off of Cloverdale Road betweel Daleville and Roanoke. They are called the Cottages at Steeple Chase and have just begun to be built.

They are very close to I81 access. you can check them out on the Botetourt County GIS probably. if you are able to pull up addresses using the GIS system, you can then look at the Google web site that shows you the house at Street Level.

There is no law that requires it but I have never been told no by a seller when I asked for copies. Yes usage is individualized but if you are looking to purchase out in the country then you also need to check which company. Co-ops tend to be more expensive. ... more

Regina Sparks answered:
Lenders look at more than just credit score but it is a big part. My advice would be to use a local lender because they are much easier to work with when you can sit down and talk to them in person rather than just phone calls and emails. If you need any help I have several lenders I work with regularly. First step get that pre approval letter! ... more

Jackie Boyd answered:
Yes, there are several furnished "corporate apartments" offered. You can probably get to most of them by googling. There are also entire complexes of furnished units with fully equipped kitchens that a lot of my clients stay in until they're closing date. The name of those is Affordable Efficiency Inn's and there are at least 3 locations in the Roanoke Valley. Call me when you're in town - I'd love to work with you to help you find your home.
My Best,
