I'm looking to relocate to the Guilford County area from Syracuse, Ny. Along with that comes finding a job. I have a couple questions. Where is the best place to look for teaching/coaching jobs in that area. What are the best suburbs in the county to live. I'm just out of college so I can't really afford these huge expensive houses that i am constantly hearing about. I'd like to also know where i could look at townhouses. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Nick

Default schools

Guilford and Forsyth counties are relatively large school systems. Other nearby ones would be Davidson or Randolph counties, depending on where you live in Guilford.

There are a lot of affordable townhome communities in the area - some are on or near Battleground Ave in GSO near the Guilford Courthouse park; some are near Bryan Blvd. There is a nice mostly-brick townhouse community called Oak Ridge Meadows near Guilford College - you can get a 2/3 bedroom, all-brick, virtually new townhouse for about $130k-$150k. I'm not sure how the airport expansion will affect that community (potentialy more airplane noise, but probably not a big deal).

Adams Farm is in SW Greensboro, and there are also townhouses on that side of town off Wendover Ave near all the big-box stores.

In short, you won't have a problem finding a townhome or small house in Greensboro.

The NW part of the county outside of GSO doesn't have much in the way of townhouses, but I've seen some small houses in the $160-$170k range - but those aren't very common (27310 ZIP code). NW Greensboro, however, has some nice and relatively affordable communities such as River Hills (search the 27410 ZIP code for NW GSO).

North High Point also has a LOT of new and affordable communities (27265 ZIP code) - it is a popular area for people relocating to the area since it is convenient to everywhere in the Triad.

Hi JAS. What town in Guilford County do you live? I am just over the county line into Rockingham just on the other side of Summerfield, near GSO National Golf Course.

Default Moving to Summerfield or Oak Ridge

My family and I are moving to Summerfield or Oak Ridge from Orlando Florida. We are looking at a community east of Summerfield call Ridgewood.
I have recently found news about the airport expansion and we are worried that the airport noise could be bad in this area. Can anyone comment about the airport noise around Summerfield and Oak Ridge?
