Here is what I am looking for:
1. Not a big city. I wouldn't mind a little rural-having from 1/2-a couple of acres.
2. Living close enough to a city as my husband is a mailman, but a city one (not a rural carrier), so he would have to drive into the city every day
3. They need teachers (that's me)
4. Good school system for my kids
5. Near the mountains-on it or with a view of it
6. Ready for the kicker: I don't want to be house poor. I REALLY want/need to stay under 200K for the house. I actually would love to be in the low-mid houndred thousands. I don't mind an older home-actually prefer it; they have more charm.

The only city of size in the Mountain Region of North Carolina is Asheville. Population around 70K.
