Default Sanford NC area

I'm about tired of living in the frozen North. NE Ohio. On Lake Erie. **** ton of snow. Cold as hell.

Where I work has a division in Sanford. Been looking in the surrounding areas. Just me the wife and 4 dogs. Im.ok with manufactured homes so long as they're on a foundation. Not blocks.

What's the area like? Crime?

The wife is a nurse so there is likely a job there for her somewhere. Want to be away from people. I don't want new construction. And I want to spend less than 100k.

That sound do able there? Plan to pay cash for the house as we own this one outright. So selling this one will pay for that one.

Thanks.

I'm from Apex NC, not sure what you can get for 100k, check local real estate. Crime should be low, been here 5 years, great weather, nice people, some rednecks but there harmless if your nice I guess. Much better than the Kaos from up north. Check out Garner, Angier, fuquay varina as well. Good luck.

Great weather here to ride all year round. I am west of Sanford along the SC boarder. Less people, some good some bad but people down here are definitely different. This is the bible belt.

Sanford is not far from Ft. Bragg in Fayetteville. Housing runs the gambit as far as prices. Look at sites like Zillow and realtor.com.
Lots of medical places in the area so your wife could find work.
Raleigh/ Durham is a 45 minute or so ride from there.
Take a map and draw a radius around Sanford as far out as you want to commute and start digging. Lots of open country out that way.

Sanford, like ANY town... has good and bad parts.... but, it is in a nice area to ride.... if you like curvy country roads, some hills, but not much.... check out prices away from town....Best thing I could suggest is come down for a week end, and check out houses, and commutes
After living in Ohio.... you'll find NC is a year round ride.... well MOSTLY... ice storms, the occasional snow storm, or hurricane.... figure 45 weeks a year +/-
BIG cities, like Raleigh, and Charlotte are close enough for a night out....but far enough away to keep down the traffic

good luck
