Hi! I'm moving to South Boston for my first job after college (w/ ABB, if you know where that is) and I'm having trouble finding anyplace that rents apartments. All I can find is houses for sale. I've just spent 6 years in Blacksburg, and was raised up in Falls Church, so I like Virginia. Could someone recommend any agencies/realtors?

Some info about what I'm looking for: I like living in houses, old ones especially. So I don't mind small, or hardwood floors. I prefer no carpet actually. Also, I have a dog and a cat. (Neither is destructive, the cat is so chill you'd think I feed him magic brownies, and the dog is not a barker.) The dog is 35 pounds, so certainly not huge but somehow "large" by many apartment buildings' standards. If I could find a house to rent, I'd probably be willing to pay 700-800$/mo for it. (Not including pet fees, which I admit I'd pay just about anything they asked.)

The dog does not require a yard. I haven't really formed a preference for rural v. urban yet, but I don't like to live on high speed roads b/c of the pets.

Any help is much appreciated!

Also feel free to give me any advice you'd like to, about the area or first-time-on-your-own in general.

I actually just moved here recently too. Found a place to live, but wondering about things to do around here. Any suggestions?

You're kidding. Think of going down to Raleigh, or up to Richmond if you're looking for culture; unless you like racing, but, then, thats not really culture.
I grew up in Roanoke, and lived in Charlotte, NC before here ( long story, don't ask! ), and I really feel like I'm dying here. I hope you enjoy it more than I do.
I have family in Radford/Blacksburg/Roanoke areas, and it's like going on vacation when I go up there. Its not just things to do, its the small conveniences, the little things that I miss the most. The locals think I'm crazy for not liking it here. Most of them have never been 20 miles from home, except maybe Myrtle or Va. beach, so I guess I can't fault them. My advice, rent for a while and see if you like it. Good luck,
