Oh, thanks so much. I want to spend as little as possible in order to keep as much in the bank as I can & since most people don't want a 2 bedroom place I think I can find what I want. I just don't want a crackhouse next door.
The internet's a blessing but it's still hard to tell from Google everything you want to know.
I do want a neighborhood feel with sidewalks, etc. What's put me off most new subdivision is the lack of trees & naturally they're usually loaded with younger couples with lots of kids. Not a thing wrong with that but I don't want to be the only one in my age group so a mix of ages appeals to me more.
With your input I will continue to concentrate on this area. I was surprised at the number of hotels there as well. Libraries & good grocery stores are other things high on my list. How are the cable companies & do you know what the electric rates are? Mine are horrendous!
Thanks again! I might take you up on your offer to email later on.
