I think I just found the answer - Greatschools lists the elementary school at a 10 but the high school only a 6 - what's up with that? Any talk of building a new high school in the area, closer to Pinehurst?

Pinecrest seems to be not that bad but it also serves some lower income areas that have had problems with educational attainment, so some of the "scoring" is brought down. However, most of the folks in Pinehurst with kids in HS don't seem to think its too bad and has some high end programs from what I've been told.

Sounds good - Pinehurst has become really high on my list of possible destinations (Apex and Wake Forest are up there to).

Can anyone tell me the best place to find rentals in the Pinehurst area?

Apartments/House/Condo? Mainly houses for rent directly in Pinehurst. Most apartments are in neighboring towns due to how Pinehurst was developed.

Thanks - but I meant where would I find available rentals? I don't see much on Craigslist, is there a local paper or some other resource?

Try "The Pilot (http://www.thepilot.com/classifieds/classifiedlistings.html - broken link)" newspaper out of Southern Pines. Beyond that, I am not too familiar with what to do for a rental in this area.

When we first lived in Pinehurst we rented from a property managment company called Sarvis. They had houses, towhouses and apartments available. When we showed up to look at potential rentals it was close to their closing time so they just gave us a bunch of keys and property listings and told us to drop the keys off in the drop box when we were done looking. Very friendly people.

I would definitely suggest renting from a property managment place over renting from a bigger complex. The complexes we looked at all seemed either over priced or run down.

Smile Pinehurst Area

It is due to the military. More military folks are moving out there because it is very nice and has a great feel to it. Builders are building more to keep up, so the resale homes have a little more run for their money. Hope that helps!

Default Pinehurst - Please comment

My husband and I are planning a move from the north (Stamford-CT) to the south in the next 2 years. We loved Aiken and Rarity Bay in TN.

However, we are Young (late 50's) and will still be working when we move to wherever..... We golf, play tennis, and are very sociable...

Would Pinehurst be a good fit...We want postive, educated, active people as our new neighbors.

We are NOT rich Northerners...but we are interesting, active people with a budget of $400K to spend on a home?

Thanks
