    The wife and I have had enough with this place. It's time to move. If anyone knows of any houses for rent in Davie or Davidson counties, please post below or PM me. We dont want to move to another apartment, and most definitely not within any city limits. Land would be nice but not necessary. We have dogs so a fenced yard is a plus. At least 2 bed 1.5 bath. The wife would like it to not have stairs but this is negotiable. I'll post more info as I get more info from her.
    Also, I'd say we can afford up to $1100 a month max.
    @karalynnlippy
    Thanks everyone.

    I didnt know where else to put this so I put it in Wanted, @Tim please move it if necessary.

    Seems like a reasonable spot for the thread. Good luck with the move!

    but, come on, you were a BU...just go buy a keg of Beer, a case of whisky and package of hot dogs. Some 'Bees will be along shortly to knock out a place for you to live.

    My preferences are dishwasher because I’m spoiled and must have Spectrum high speed so I can work from home. Garbage disposal is a huge win too but not a must have. :)

    I suggest using @BU2scwMJL -- just make sure the settings are precisely the way you want them.

    BMs will do it cheaper -- but it will be painted gray on a daily basis.

    Sounds about right... "I'm tired. Don't touch me! "

    I tell my wife, "You don't have to expend any energy. Just be still. "

    It still doesn't work...

    Today we literally got a free pass to move out by management, meaning no fees or anything extra to break the lease. All because some snowflakes get triggered when they see me carry my guns and ammo cans to the car. It's funny because I know for a fact that I'm not the only one with guns in our building. Whatever, I'll take it! Hook a brother up!

    It's a bit rare to find house for rent in Davie out in the Country and not within city limits but I've seen it happen occasionally. But... we could still be neighbors if you are willing to buy rather than rent. Real estate out here tends to move pretty quick. I don't get out a ton but I will keep my eye out for you. My wife gets out much more than I do and I'll have her keep an eye out as well. I'm as far out "in the country" as I think you can get here. It's a great place to live in my opinion. And if you have children, I can give you info on essentially every school in the district.

    You might want to try Advance if you are looking more for rentals. Advance and somewhat away from city limits can still be achieved. Possibly even further down 601 in Davie towards the William R. Davie area.

    If you do find a spot and have questions about the area in general, feel free to shoot me a pm.

    Iredell North of Mooresville and most of Wilkes there's not as many rental properties either unless you want to live in apartment blocks in Statesville or the rough part of town, or both.
    Stuff goes up for sale and disappears quick. From what I've heard, realtors in Wilkes are desperate for properties to sell.

    there's a trailer near me for 40k on Eller Road



    there's a house for sale near me too, trying to find it now
    it's got a basement (stairs), but you could always drive around to the basement area if you didnt want to walk it.
    three bed, 1 bath (maybe two), I was in it when they did an estate sale, bought some stuff.
    It's a great location, near me! But, seriously, youre in the county (Davidson), but minutes from 52, ONE MINUTE from old 52, and you can be downtown WS in about 12-15 minutes. Youre away from stuff, but also close to stuff.

    It's on Eller Road too, but I cant find a listing online for it for some reason

    I looked at a similar home two or three up from it, so I know approximate values, your mortgage would be a couple hundred from/under your max, if I had to guess (again, based on what Im paying vs what a house a 1/4 mile from it and similar size (maybe larger, actually) cost etc)

    I could drive by it this morning and get a pic, if you'd like
    Carport, hardwoods, large basement with garage door
    Dont remember if it had a fence, but Im thinking it did

    I don’t have any helpful leads but as I was stuck in f’ing WS traffic last night I distinctly recall wondering “who the f wants to live out here...!?”

    Best of luck getting to a quieter place.

    Y'all could get a VA Home Loan at about 3.7% and no down payment.

    I've used the VA Home Loan on two different houses and it was easy both times.

    PM me if you have questions about the process.

    Nope. @Burt Gummer’s lady @Lil D is on here, now, and I think I even saw R.S. on here, for a moment @BatteryOaksBilly? I’m sure there are others, but those are the newest additions that I know of.

    If I can find the name of the realtor who sold my late MIL's condo, I will post here. She mostly does houses but, can put you in contact with rental and/or land agents.

    Try Zillow for rentals in Stanleyville, Pinnacle, Advance and/or Sophia. There have been rental listings there recently. (Disclosure: Spouse and I have been looking for 5+ acres to purchase in the area but, look at rental/lease properties as well.)

    And me? No one really important...been here most every day myself since this forum started, and the two others before that.
    I used to post a lot, not so much nowadays.


    Oh, and I probably missed mentioning several of the lady members, happens as one gets older.
