We are relocating the the Winston Salem area. My husband will be working in Welcome. Currently, we are researching Clemmons, Lewsiville, Kernersville. We would like to live in a smaller town, but not too rural with 1/2 acre or more. Can you tell me what areas are good, where to look for a house in the 250,000+ price.

Have you looked in the Welcome/Arcadia/Midway area? It is nice being in North Davidson County. You are only about 15 minutes to Winston, you only pay county taxes, it is a bit more rural with amenities, it is quiet and safe with good schools. It seems like the majority of houses out here are also on 1/2 acre lots. We are in a small neighborhood and every house near us is on at least 1/2 acre.

Kernersville (K-ville to some locals) is a nice, quiet area. It is really growing, but there is still a small town feeling. It is close enough to bigger cities, but far enough from the crowds. Clemmons is more of a bedroom community, but is growing. It is close to Tanglewood, a great park with lots to do. Lewisville is even more rural, but quiet and nice. It is a rural community, but close enough to the cities, you don't feel stranded.

Kernersville also gets a vote from me if you don't want to live in the city, which is my first vote. The people there are wonderful, and the feeling of knowing your neighbors seems to be prevalent.

I'll give yet another vote for Kernersville.

I strongly recommend Advance (Davie County), specifically Oak Valley. It is an awesome place, great people, and there are always tons of social activities if you like stuff like that. Taxes are cheap and the public schools are some of the best in the state. We are leaving the area for work (moving now), our house in this economy sold in 30 days. Home prices start in the mid 200's and work their way up to 1 million. We moved to NC from Georgia and 16 acres of land, the 0.66 we had in Oak Valley took a little getting used to, be we adjusted just fine. Just have your realtor take you out there, or drive out there yourself so you can check it out, I don't think you can go wrong!
