We are trying to rent a house long-distance for a quick move for my husband's job. I found a house I am interested in- can anyone tell me about this area?
Exit I-40 to Sycamore View North. Go through Summer Avenue, continue North to Raleigh LaGrange and turn left (West). Go about 4/10's of a mile and turn right on Bartlett and this runs into Curbertson Street.
2224 Curbertson at Bartlett

I understand that parts of Bartlett are kind of iffy.
Thank you

I think renting there would be fine. If there are any iffy places in Bartlett, it would probably be the area immediately adjacent to Raleigh - and I'm not even sure that would be so bad to rent (but I probably wouldn't buy there).

The section you're looking at was built, I believe, in the early 70s....3 & 4 bedroom homes mostly with 2 car garages. Most have the living room/dining room/den floor plans that were popular then.

I'll drive by there later today and take a pic of the house and the street it's on for you...

OK, I went to the wrong place Google showed that address on the section of Curbertson that runs south off of Elmore...but that's the 2300 block - and I didn't have your directions with me. I believe the section off Raleigh-Lagrange is a bit older (maybe mid to late 60s), and not quite as nice. I have a couple of friends who live in that general area. I'll swing by there tomorrow and post some pictures then.

Schools are not an issue yet.
