I just moved to the Hampton area and is staying with my brother. Not many places to live that I liked unless you have about $1500 a month to pay in rent. I was wondering if anyone no of any rent to own places or just to rent places in the Virginia Beach area because that is where I am trying to move to now. One thing is I am a single mother with three young children so the community, crime, and schools play a big part into where I can move. I just cant move into no bad area with kids. I would greatly appreciate someones help.
Thanks

Default Try Craigslist

I am moving to the Tidewater area in a few weeks, and we found our rental house on craigslist.org. There are dozens of new listings on that site each day. I have noticed that they include a number of rent-to-own offers. Just click on "Virginia" and then the "Hampton Roads" link. You might also contact local realtors. Even if the home is listed for conventional sale and not rent-to-own, the current owners might be willing to work with you, especially if they are desparate to move or the house has been on the market for a while.

I moved down here almost 4 years ago - right after Isabel. I HAD a place to rent, but after the hurricane he changed his mind to give the house to someone who lost theirs. So I moved down and had to live with the in-laws, which was fine. I looked everywhere after that! Trying to get a feel for the neighborhoods.

This area is very strange - I have never seen an area that has so many pockets of 'bad areas' right next to good areas. I still am wary when I travel around because you never know. So my advice is to rent until you find somewhere that you feel good about. I found a SFH to rent for several hundred less than an apt. Most of the homes tend to be older here and command less rent than the average newer apt. I moved during the high sellers market and decided not to buy right away again - BOY, I am sooooo glad I didn't. I may not be investing my money wisely, but buying here does not feel right. This is just a transition area for me.

Turns out that we may have an opportunity to move to Florida for hubby's job so selling a house right now would be bad - made the right decision.

55plus couple--along with daughter and son-in-law,relocating to Hampton,VA. From the message boards I have read, we hope this is not the wrong decision. Both spouse and I receive SSDA. Anticipated move is 2 1/2 to 3 months. Open to CHESAPEAKE and VIRGINIA BEACH areas. Need rental with 2bedrooms and 2 full baths. Open to rent to own plan. Hoping that this anticipated move is better than the awful experiences in Denver.
