I currently live in Erie, PA, but am looking to move - just not sure where yet. I run an online marketing company from my house, so work is not really an issue - I can do my job from anywhere. I am looking for a few things though. I have a one year old son, so the school system is a big issue. I am also looking for somewhere close to the city, but not right in the city. I will be looking to eventually buy a home, but renting is fine for the time being if it is easier. I have a dog, so that may be something to take into consideration as well. Since I have lived in a winter state for my entire life, I am looking to live somewhere warmer all year round - I have had enough of the snow. If anyone has any suggestions as to where a good place to raise my son would be, please let me know.

What is your price range? That will probably determine where you will live. I live in the Raleigh-Durham area and you can expect to pay around 220K for a 1,500 sq. ft. home with a 2 car garage in a good area. That is only an average and they don't stay too long on the market- these are resale homes also. There are other areas outside of Raleigh such as Fuquay Varina where you could get the same thing for less.. and then there is Clayton which might suit you best. Great schools and housing is less. You could probably find something around a 150K, but again these are just averages. I had a cottage at Lake Pymatuming, so I am very familiar with the Erie, PA area. There are many other areas in NC, but I cannot comment on the majority of them. Good luck.
