How can I move to NC with my whole family? Would a condo allow this many pets? If yes, can they go outside? I don't know if this is a dumb question but I am worried to sell my house here and move to NC buy a 300K house and not like it and have to sit with all my money tied up there. I would like to keep my house here in MA till I know I want to stay down south.

Any suggestions would be appreciated and please don't suggest finding homes for my pet because they are family! Thank you ....
Oh BTW.... Buddy is a wonerful SH*TZU dog!!! Didn't mean to swear ...

Try Craigs list, under "coastal north carolina", there are tons of places for rent in Southport and Oak Island. I also have friends who are looking to rent their place, contact me if interested. They are very pet friendly.

Brunswick County is a great place to live. New medical care facilities are opening monthly it seems. We have the beach, Cape Fear and Lockwood Folly Rivers, and the Intracoastal Waterway. Brunswick Hospital is expanding and I'm sure they need qualified help. Moderator cut: TOS violation solicitation

Check out Brunswick county, NC. Close to beaches, shopping, airports, and hospitals. A 3 Br would probably go for $200,000, depending on the location. Prices here are affordable, and will only continue to gain in value, because of it's proximity to the ocean, Intracoastal Waterway and Cape Fear River.
They have built some great new communities, and builders are anxious to sell. Then there are rustic little cottages, townhomes that others find appealing. All in all it is a wonderful place to live, work and play. I relocated there from DC, and have never looked back. Moderator cut: solicitation . Towns to research are Southport, Oak Island, Ocean Isle, Holden Beach, Sunset Beach and Calabash. Good luck and Happy hunting.
