My family (husband, me and our small child) is relocating to the Lexington/Irmo area later this summer. I am looking for suggestions on where to live. I would like to live in a well established neighborhood, preferably with community pool and tennis courts, and decent sized lots. We have looked at several neighborhoods but all seem to be recently built, no amenities and very small lots. We would also like to be reasonable close to the lake and a golf course. Price range is around 220K.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions!

Irmo is a wonferful community with the best schools in the state. You will ove it its family friendliness...it is a true community of neighbors who look out for one another. I live in a large, master planned community called Ashford park. We have a large pool. beautiful clubhouse, tennis courts and fields. The neighborhood is full of kids of all ages, mainly elementary aged. Ballentine Elem. is absolutely amazing. We are sad to leave this community, but we have just listed our home to prepare for a move to Texas. Please contact me if you would like more info about Irmo, Columbia, or the neighborhood.

You can everything you want for that price range in either Lexington or Irmo. If you have a Realtor already have them give you a residential tour of the 2 areas. If you don't have a Realtor hire one and come down for a visit. Most, none that I know, will charge you for that service. If you have a relo company or are retired/active military many times they can refer you to someone.

I have also heard a lot of positive things about Irmo and Lexington. We are coming to visit the area in August. Any suggestions for specific neighborhoods or places to look at? I am also an educator in New Jersey and would like to pursue that professional avenue upon relocating. Anyone have an idea if the prospects of getting a teaching job is good? Thank you!

tsepts- There are several areas in Columbia or Lexington that would allow you to find what you are looking for. You may want to check out the Irmo area and Northeast Columbia. See where you feel the most comfortable and where you want to live. If you are a first time home buyer, $8,000 tax credit is still around until December 1rst.

We would like to keep it under 200,000. I'd prefer to buy a buildable lot in a community which will give me plenty of time to settle life here.

You would be able to find a nice home for $200,000. There are also lots available to build on, you just need to see what's out there so you can see where you would like to build once you are settled in.
