    Good Luck to you! You are so brave to move to a different state and town. I have been to greenville and its definetly a college town but its a nice place with all the commadities.
    When I was in Lexington I was so excited to be away from my parents. Now, I'm not so excited anymore. Excited to be starting a new job and career....just not excited about moving out of state again. We are supposed to leave tomorrow, but with our luck it will end up being Thursday.

    Welcome to NC. I lived in Lexington for four years. Have you thought about living in Farmville? I can get to the hospital parking lot in 10 minutes (beats those who live across town in Greenville...especially when the train goes through town) I also know about Nicholasville Road...when we first came to town we were driving a big moving van and happened upon 1600 traffic. Suddenly the lights changed and people were coming at me. Not a fun experience. If you need anything let me know.

    I will be on 3 North. Enjoy PCMH!

    Ouch, Nicholasville Rd is not a fun one regardless of what time of day but 0700 anf 1600 are the worse.

    Do you know about any rentals in Farmville?

    There are a few private homes to rent here. Really takes a quick drive around town to see them. What are you looking for? I'll see if I can point you in the right direction.

    We are looking for something that will accept both our pets without nickel and diming us to death on all the fees. One apartment complex we went to wanted $200 per pet, pet deposit...plus $25/month per pet, pet rent. Of course there is the regular security deposits, application fees, etc. And I wasn't too impressed with the property, yet they wanted $400 just for our pets, plus $50/month extra pet rent.

    We would would love to find something that was rent to own, but those are hard to find we are finding. Which road do we take to get to Farmville to look at what's available?

    One of these days we are going to get to B's Bar-b-que. We have found and love Abrams

    Take 264 West. There are a few road options. You can get off at the Mozingo Rd. exit to Bell Arthur. It's a small community, but it's nice.
    The next exit is pretty much a connector road. Take a right and then turn left onto Stantonsburg Rd. You'll soon come to a stop sign, turn left and that will turn into Main St. and run you into downtown Farmville.
    The next exit after that (there is a food lion and some fast food places there) will also take you to Farmville. Turn left at that exit and it will also run you into downtown Farmville.

    We went out 43 yesterday after being told me would see signs about homes for rent. We went as far out as I was willing LOL, then turned onto 121 through Farmville then onto I guess Stantonsburg Rd...it became Dickenson.

    Hopefully I'll get done a little early tomorrow so we can look at a few more places.

    Unless they've done some renovations within the past 4 years...Most of the Wainright properties are "rat-traps" or at least I think so.

    Except for maybe Holly Glen
    Hmmm....I rented from Wainright (Hampton Creek) and had no problems. The place was clean and bright. I had a late payment once due to miscommunication with the fiance and they didn't charge me for it. We recently had to sublease it and they were extremely helpful. I really thought they were great IMHO!

    Oh ya, and my friend lived at Holly Glen which was also nice, and she had no issues with mgt.

    One of the problems we've been having is our pets. Our dog Emmi is a spitz and weighs approx 35-40 lbs. Well, that's higher than the majority of rental properties weight limit. Which is why we are desparately trying to find a rent to own house, not just a rental house because even those have pet restrictions. Somehow paying upwards of $600+ per month plus the $400 most places want for our pets ($200-250 per pet), plus $50 per month pet rent, not including the security deposit and first months rent. Neither of us are going to consider giving up our furkids, so we just have to find a place that won't ding us so badly on the pet fees. Amazingly the cheaper places are more stringent on the size of pets We were hoping to not have to pay a whole heck of a lot in rent simply as a precaution, looks like that's not going to happen.
