Hi! My husband and I are going to be stationed at Langley, but we're not sure about where we want to live. It's frustrating because we have to figure it out BEFORE we move there, so I was hoping you could give me some advice. What would be the best place to live that's within 20 minutes to Langley? We're looking into apartments/townhouses, but a house would be a huge plus. We're renting, and our max is probably 900. Oh, and we don't have any kids, just a cat.
Thank you for any input you can give me. (:

Oh, I almost forgot... we've been looking into these apartments, so if you could tell me anything about it, positive or negative, that would really help us out.

Look in Hampton and Newport News (NORTH Newport News only). Most of the SFH here are older brick ramblers with 2 or 3 br's. If you can swing it, your money will go alot further in an older SFH than an apt. The newer apts prices are just ridiculous!

We do not have many TH in this area - not sure why - but there are some, as well as duplex type homes.

Be careful if you plan to look below Mercury Blvd in either city. South of Mercury in NN is pretty much off limits. South of Mercury in Hampton, with exceptions being Downtown and Wythe, is hit or miss.

Ft Eustis is a nice area, or Williamsburg is pretty safe as well.

This is a silly question, but how do I go about finding places like that for rent? I've been looking at craigslist and a few other sites, but I have no idea about how safe the neighborhood is and things like that. We keep finding apartments we like but end up reading horrible reviews about them.

If you want to rent a house, I would point you to REIN - Real Estate Information Network. At certain times, you can get full access to the site without having to pay. It all depends on what real estate agent is "sponsoring the site" at the time, from what it seems.

If you want to rent an apartment, make sure you read reviews. The Apartment Guide is a good resource.

I know it is so difficult to determine if a neighborhood is good or bad. You might want to try to get a local map - like ADC of the Peninsula area of HR.
The local paper is the Daily Press Hampton Roads, Virginia, news, sports, weather, real estate, jobs and cars from the Daily Press -- dailypress.com.

Finds some homes and come back here and ask us ! Also, try google maps. They now have street level 360 pictures of addresses. Find an address, and look all around from the street - very cool!
