We just can't rent though We have 3 dogs and I'd rather live in a place I half-like than dump money into rent. I'm honestly the most un-picky person when it comes to homes as long as I don't fear for my life when walking outside. My first place was a manufactured home that I flipped in Seattle, and I bought a house sight unseen in Kansas City for a rental. That second one wasn't the smartest idea, but it still has ended up being a great investment! Lol.
So where are you going to live while you build a house in Wilmington if you live in Montana?

The traffic lights do sound absolutely terrible lol. One of the highlights of living around here was Trader Joe's. I currently live in Great Falls, MT and I miss Trader Joe's the most!!!!!
Available land in sought after neighborhoods. Wilmington is pretty much built out, there are a few section of New Hanover County that are not built out, but the locals aren't looking to build there. They renovate and stay close to everything...and the commercial just keeps getting better...in town.
