First let me say this board is amazingly helpful! I've learned so much just from lurking in the last week or so. Most of my questions have already been answered, but I have a few specific questions about relocating and where to live.
My husband is interviewing for a job in Huntersville and while he's down there has the task of scooping out a place for us to rent. We're looking for neighborhood that is safe, dog friendly and located near shopping. Schools aren't an issue as our daughter is only three months old. From what I've seen apartments are cheaper, however with the baby, and taking our (small) dogs to go to the bathroom when home alone would be an issue. We'd like to live either in Huntersville (but looks pricey), or under 20min. I'd also like the rent to be under $1,000 a month.
Any direction you can give would be helpful. Otherwise he's just going to end up driving around and telling me it all looks "nice" haha.
