I would appreciate any suggestions anyone might have.
My husband and I are researching moving to considering to Virginia from S. California.
Although we love the beauty and climate of So. Cal we are looking to move to a more fiscally and socially conservative community.

We have a small toner recycling company.
We would need to be close to a city, with businesses that print in large numbers. It is a service company and not sales based.
How are taxes for business in Virginia?

Is it possible to find a house in a safe community for 100K-130K, with at least 1000 sq. feet.? We would love to find a community with other like minded people. We are fairly conservative Christians.

Since we homeschool, we are not concerned about the "rating" of school districts. We would like to find a "family friendly" community ie: parks, community events for kids, activities for the kids.
We are currently involved in a youth track club here and would love to be able to continue.

Does anyone know of any cities/towns with an active "homeschooling" community. Is anyone familiar with communities/groups out there?

Thanks so much!

Unfortunately, you're going to need to triple (at least!) your price for a 1000+ sqft house anywhere in Northern Virginia. If you're interested in Virginia, I would suggest further south.

You can't get a double wide for that kind of money in Northern Virginia. You'd be better off in Kentucky or Tennessee.

In addition to your housing price requirements being way, way, way, too low, Northern Virginia is hardly known as a bastion for conservative Christians (not that there's anything wrong with that). Although, there are a great number of homeschoolers around here, and Patrick Henry College does exist in Purcellville, overall, this area has more of a liberal/moderate vibe. Regardless, you might be able to buy a shed for your house for $100K here (okay, I might be exaggerating a tad), but not the house itself. I would suggest the Lynchburg, Virginia area. Conservative Christians abound and housing costs are much, much cheaper. Good luck!

You might want to post your question on the general VA forum instead. I don't think this part of the Commonwealth is for you.

Ditto for this - I guess the Roanoke area (very pretty, less expensive, and generally more conservative than NoVa) in SW Virginia came to mind when I saw your post. There's a separate sub-forum for Roanoke on C-D as well.

we have a very active homeschooling community here - we even have liberal homeschoolers

While real estate is way too pricey in NoVa for the OP, the market here for that kind of business has to be pretty good. I wonder if being based out in the Shenandoah Valley would be too far to make the service calls work?
