I'm relocating in the next 3 years and am thinking, strongly, of Greensboro. Any suggestions?

Thanks for any assistance, insites, rental pricing,

My suggestion: stay in Massachusetts. There aren't many jobs down here right now and you'll probably regret leaving the Northeast. Sure, you don't get as much snow down here but the scorching hot summers and winter ice storms negate the advantages of a warmer climate.

I am from the Northeast and lived for a few years in Greensboro Northwest area. I loved the town and community and found much to do there. The summers are quite warm but otherwise it is great. There are a lot of beautiful parks and neighborhoods. The county government however is insane and provides much amusement. The farmers market is terrific.

Find a job BEFORE you decide to move to NC, that's the principal advice you will get, for a reason. Once you've got a job lined up, closer to the time you'll be coming, is the time to ask about specific apartments, etc. This area is booming and there could be entirely new buildings three years from now. Also, as we've seen in the past two years, the economy can change drastically in 3 years, so it's kind of far-off to be making relocation plans that far off unless you alrady have a plan in place.

Dimecovers3, I think you misunderstood.

Booming. As in houses. Lots of new houses. Not jobs. Francois tells everyone the truth about the job situation.

Yes, there will be new neighborhoods three years from now.

And three years from now those houses and apartments will have different expenses. Don't know if it'll be more or less expensive but it will be different. It's too early to ask specifics when there's no job lined up. Many of those moving are retirees who will not be employed but they all seem to want to build a new house.

If it's going to be 3 years before you actually relocate I suggest asking the question again in 30 months.
