I currently live in Indianapolis.

I've already searched the forum and not alot of good things have been said about Fayetteville. It's kind of scaring me a little lol. But some comments are 3-4 years old.

I don't plan on making Fayetteville my long term home. I figure I'd be there about 3 years, 4 at the most.

I plan to rent while I am there. Any recommend apartment complexes? Any good areas outside of Fort Bragg/Fayetteville?

I'm 34, single with no kids. But don't want to live in a bad area. Price range would be anywhere from $600-$700. I'd pay more if I had to though.

Living near Bragg will probably run you more than $600-$700 a month. There are many civilians and troops living off base and rent reflects the demand.
You may have to look within a 20-30 mile radius for rent under $750? I am 12 miles from BRagg and the houses here are typically $600-$750. There are some nice looking apartments between me and Bragg along 210 near the Cunmberland / Harnett border.

If you'd go out towards Eastover, Stedman, Beaver Dam--putting you within a 20-40 minute drive to base---you can rent a house in that range.

Check out Southern Pines on the west side of Bragg. A little more upmarket - they even have a Bonefish Grill.

I'm originally from Martinsville, IN and I stayed here after I retired from the USAF. There are many many nice gated (or not) apartments communities around the area. There are several new projects just finished or in the process. For the nicer ones you should be looking at $800-900. I stayed in a decent safe Hope Mills apartment for a year after retiring while we searched for and built our present home. It only ran $650 and was not upscale but cheap and had a pool.

Fayetteville has nice neighborhoods and not so nice neighborhoods. Like Indy you soon figure out which ones to avoid.

Would you mind listing some of the nice apartments and/or neighborhoods?

As Realtor I don't have much first hand knowledge of which apartment complex is best. I see new ones being built all over the area and there are many that look good as I drive by.

The one I have lived in is called Cliffs of Rockfish.
