I live in Puerto Rico and will be relocating to Virginia at the end of August and will be working near Reston Town Center. Looking for an apartment or anything with 2 bedrooms for my husband, my 13 year old son and I. The budget is $900 - $1,100. I would like to live as close to a middle school as possible. How can I go about the research?

You might be looking at 1200-1400 for a 2 BR in a decent neighborhood in Reston/etc. If your son is 13 you may want to consider which high school you'll end up in as well. I'm a fan of South Lakes HS so I'd aim for South Reston on the east side of Glade, but I'm heavily biased because that's where I lived for 3 years.

I would suggest looking for 2 bedrooms within your price range in Craig's List (Northern VA). Depending on what comes up, you may need to consider other areas (e.g., Leesburg) and research your commuting options from there. I'm afraid housing is pretty pricey in Northern VA, particularly in areas like Reston.

Reston is overpriced a lot, condo 2br goes for $800,000 in the town center. What about that. I love Reston, but I can't afford, me and my husband both working and maybe looking to get a TH build in 70's . I would recomend leave in Herdon.

go for reston/herndon. They have great middle schools. Just be careful with reston though, as it is a planned community and has low income housing in the dogwood area.

I'll add my 2 cents. (for Sterling) it's chaeper than Herndon and Reston and has some nice neighborhoods BUT be very careful.

AVOID sterling Middle school!
Sencea Ridge middle school would not be one I would condier either.

The neighborhoods that feed into RIVERBEND middle school are nice. (country side and Cascades)

There are supposedly some "bad" areas in Sterling. But as a whole Sterling, Reston, and Herndon are all excellent towns to live in. Sterling is located in Loudoun County, while Reston, and Herndon are in Fairfax Counthy. Both are which excellent counties to resides in. Don't bother renting privating just rent from one of the many property managment companies that are located in these towns.

Check out Apartment Showcase.com - Apartments For Rent - Apartment Search in Maryland, Washington DC, Northern Virginia or ApartmentGuide.com - apartments for rent, apartment finder for good information about the apartments in these three areas and others areas.

Good Luck!
