Me and my boyfriend (both in our 20's) are looking to move to the greensboro area. We plan on coming down to look around and see if it would be an area that would be good for us. I'm just wondering a few things that I havnt really been able to get a direct answer on. First was the price of utilities. Monthly rent for apartments is about half the price that they are here on long island and are much bigger but I get the idea that none have utilities included. So I'm wondering what the avg coast a month is for cable, eletric, etc. Also what it is like trying to find a job there. Especialy for a mechanic. Thats what my boyfriend does. He is currently working at a hyundai dealership but I'm not sure if it's a hard area to find a job for a mechanic. I am also hearing mixed things on the quality of living. Some people say its good and you make enough money and other people have said otherwise. Any insight anyone can give me would be so helpful. Thank you in advance

There is NO substitution to seeing things for yourself. Allow about a week.
The other thousand posts with the "detail" that such anecdotes can be... are about as good as it will get short of a VERY specific question.

As to the job... knowing you have one really should come first. Where ever you might go.
Good luck.
