I think Ivan1236 is talking about Grifton, not Greenville.

You are absolutely correct. Even when Grifton and Pitt Co taxes are combined they still don't even begin to approach some of the property tax rates in NJ. Places like Alpha Boro, Belvidere and Hackettstown have rates that are twice that of Grifton. And then you add on the fact that real estate is valued at twice that of Pitt Co and you have some $10,000 plus tax bills for an everyday home, not a mansion.

Default Greenville....

I have been reading your posts on Greenville. It is now 2010 and I was wondering if this is a good place to move. We are in AR now.

As you will see if you read all the threads on this board, Greenville has the following general pros and cons:

Cons - crime rate too high for the size of the city
- lack of big city amenities and shopping
- lack of entertainment options

Pros - inexpensive real estate
- general friendliness, although some may disagree
- relatively close to great beaches and waterways
- excellent hospital
- major university and good community college

The area in general has a very young population, which can be a pro or a con depending on your perspective.

Moving 7 yrs. ago from So. NJ to Winterville, right outside of Greenville, we couldn't be happier. People are very welcoming and friendly. Hospitals exceed anything that we saw in NJ. An example; yesterday, my husband had his yearly Physical, there was a spot on his back that the Dr. wanted the Dermatologist to check. His Receptionist called and my husband had a 7:15 am appt. this morning and the spot was removed and on its way to be biopsied. If the Dr. wants you to see a Specialist, his Receptionist makes the call and tells you when you appt. is. Just yesterday our dd called from NJ furious because she had called Monmouth Med. Center 3 1/2 wks. ago about sending test results for her d to a Hosp. out of Sate, she was told that the papers were mailed out either "Mon. Tue. or Wed." That is just not done here.

We have one of the best supermarkets, "The Fresh Market" which came to town 2 yrs. ago. Any store you want is within a 5 mi. radius of our home. I have our Vet's home # and we do a lot of bartering.

There are pros and cons to every State. I like the peace of mind that we have found in Greenville/Winterville NC and it is our home. Happiness is a state of mind. kelsie

Smile Greenville Move

Thanks for your remarks. ECU interview is in September so we will see if my husband is selected for the position and go from there.
