I am moving to the Fredericksburg area and will be working close to the 95 & Rt. 3 interchange. We are looking for a neighborhood by good elementary schools with decent sized lots, (1/4 acre +) double sidewalks, and priced around 300k. Any suggestions on where to look?

Both Stafford and Spotsylvania have good schools--as does Fredericksburg. Rt.3 can be a bear to travel on a daily basis. You need a good realtor to help you make your decision. Not that many neighborhoods in your price range will even have sidewalks around here! (This was the COUNTRY a few years ago!!!!)
Contact a Realtor to get the most "bang from your buck"!

Check out Salem Fields off of Gordon Road. It is about 7 miles from the interchange, and has sidewalks throughout the community.

Depending on whether you want to live in a more rural area or not, and the traffic you want to encounter during your commute can help you get started. Route 3 West tends to have more traffic due to more lights. If you stay on Route 3 east you'll be in a more rural area, with easy access to downtown Fredericksburg, and you only have to deal with the traffic if you want to go to the Central Park area to shop. There's also areas further south right off 95 that have nice neighborhoods as well. Most areas have good schools. If you would like you can contact me, I'd love to help you out!

Hi,
I will also move to Fredericksburg, VA in 10/08. I have 2 children, ages 10 and 12. Can you please tell me the best apartment or townhome to rent with nearby middle schools that are highly rated? I am looking for a 3 bedroom, 2+ bathroom apt or townhome with maximum rent of $1300.
Thanks.

Default If you are moving to Fredericksburg!

Hello Philbla,

If you are moving to Fredericksburg, I would check out some of the local builders. It looks like in your price range you can get a brand new house, in a brand new community. Typically builders are placed well, near shopping and such. Check out Ryanhomes.com. I know they have several comunities in the area.

Good Luck
