Hi all - thank you in advance for any replies - my husband and I (along with our 3 y/o) are looking to relocate - WS/Greensboro "area" being one of our picks - I am sorry if this is more detail than needed but I figure the more info I can share the better...

1. Budget --> looking to rent for first 6months-year around $1,000+

2. House/Condo/Townhome? --> detached "something" preferred

3. Employment Status(commute/work from home) --> I am a nurse my husband will be an entry level accountant

4. Children(public school vs. private) --> either or - as long as they are safe and serve their purpose

5. Suburban or Urban lifestyle preference or a mix of the two --> Suburban

6. Easy access to public transit, important or not? --> Nope

7. Preferable demographics of desired neighborhood. --> Middle-upper class, safe

* late 20's early 30's professionals with an expanding family
* Within 25 minutes of a decent sized hospital - any names would be great
*45 minutes (or so) to major airport
*Good library within 10 minutes or so
*Farmers market within town
*Parks, parks and more parks
*Walk able downtown that isn't a ghost town - even if it is only a few blocks long/wide - as long as it has some "life"/"charm"/history
*depending on job markets we will probably be looking to spend around 200K when we purchase a home - in a "perfect world" it would be 1+ acres very, very close to a small/medium downtown area within close distance to amenities (grocery store, target [I know!] etc
*We are pretty laid back individuals that enjoy being outdoors and being able to walk around our small downtown with a variety of local restaurants, park etc - our zip code consists of approximately 70,000 people while our "downtown" has about 7,200

Thank you so very much for any and all suggestions!!

From what you have. Winston-Salem would be a great fit for you. With Baptist and Forsyth Hospital. The new Forsyth care center in Kernersville. Building a new medical complex in Clemmons. A think they approved a new small hospital in Davie county. Just across the yadkin river. Your husband should be able to find a job. A commute might be needed. But there are some small companies here where he could get his feet wet. Upper mid would be the Peacehaven road area, Lewisville and Clemmons. Although K-ville (as we call it) have some areas also. Yet not close to malls and box store shopping. It does have a couple of small parks. W-S I think has a lot of options in many different areas. Clemmons and Lewisville area would suit you best I think. Some country areas within minutes of a pizza. Ha, Ha!!
