would like some advice on NC & SC - 2/19/2015

hello We live in Maine and are looking to find a place in NC or SC. We plan to spend Jan- March there and possibly retire there later on. We hope to rent the house on the months we are away and will need a good local rental company.We are open to multiple locations, but want to be w/in 10-15 minutes to the beach in a safe area and need AT LEAST .5 acre with a bit of privacy for a pool, dogs and kids, and we would like to avoid outrageous community fees and taxes ( and not on the any water please - as we would like to avoid the aquatic wildlife from coming into the yard:). We do not care about the school systems, as we haven't really found any that are great and so we homeschool. We are starting to look at Wilmington and st. helena island areas right now. We want a place that will have decent rental potential. We know there are negatives to any location, so please do not respond to this with reasons not to move there. We love Maine but it is super expensive and the winters are getting worse every year, so this is a move we will be making. Would love some suggestions on lodging as well, as we come down to look around. Lastly, if anyone reading this is in the mental health field, I would love suggestions on companies with seasonal positions if they exist. Both my husband and I are LCPC's/ therapists and would love to know if there are local agencies that offer work for a few months at a time ( ie- assessment/intakes, etc). Thank-you so much for taking the time to read and respond to us :) Luwana

Mountain Island Day School - 1/21/2015

Someone keeps taking down my reviews???? I wonder who that could be? Tammy and Tom? This school has teachers removing anything that is not positive about the school. It is unbelievable to me what they will go through to hide the truth. Do your homework before going to this school!!

It really is less expensive here - 12/16/2014

If you're thinking of leaving your "big city" and moving to NC, you couldn't pick a nicer place, honestly. This is the one southern state that is welcoming to "transplants". If you go to Georgia or South Carolina you won't get as good of a reaction, but North Carolina has a good history of accepting people from other places once they get to know you. I know, we have a high tax rate, but you actually get some services for that tax rate. Many counties have a lower homeowner tax rate, if you live in the county and stay out of the city limits. If you don't mind driving 10 extra minutes to go shopping, you'll find yourself getting a much better deal on taxes. However, those taxes provide you with essential services - so keep that in mind. If you choose to live in the cities of North Carolina: You have more expensive housing, but typically better schools (this does not necessarily apply to small towns), they require a higher tax rate, but your 911 response time is in 2 - 30 minutes. Typically, the cities are more receptive of "foreigners" and "transplants". If you are from a large city, such as LA, NY, etc., you will probably be most comfortable in the cities of Charlotte, Greensboro, Raleigh, or Winston-Salem and maybe Asheville, though it's a little smaller. Wilmington is great too, but it's a lot smaller, but it has the added benefits of being on the beach. Charlotte is easily our largest city, so I would recommend that one to anyone who wants to live in a decent sized city. It has many outlying suburbs that are less expensive to live in. There are all manner of smaller cities and towns and just countryside that you can purchase homes in. The less civilized it gets the less expensive the land and homes become. There are still huge tracts of 100+ acres available many places here for development, though they are typically in the countryside and not worth developing. The place is here, the money is definitely not that bad. However there are less expensive places in the states. Here we have mountains, ocean, and everything in between. It's a much more gradual fall in the land though, completely unlike california. We have cold weather here, unlike LA. We have a local population which is very conservative. "You can't sling a dead cat without hitting 9 churches." is a phrase that was made to describe the bible belt of the south, and North Carolina is in it. The cities are not conservative like that, but the smaller cities and towns are very conservativ

Fayettenam earned it name. - 7/14/2014

I don't recommend moving to anywhere in NC. If you absolutely have to, Wilmington is probably the best place to do so. I have lived in "Fayettenam" all my life, native, and have been to almost all areas surrounding. I have seen the degradation first hand. Stay away if possible. I work in a public office and can tell you first hand, Fayetteville has the worst crime rate per capita on the east coast and is worsening daily. Yes even worse than NY. NC, especially Fayetteville, has a gang problem but the worse thing is, they don’t want to admit it. I am trying to get out, but made the mistake of staying too long. Fayetteville is a black hole; and if you do your research you’ll see that’s not the only time you’ll hear it.

Garner, NC


I am a life long resident of NC. My family has been here since before the Revolution. Currently we are the 3rd state with the largest number of us citizens relocating from other states to NC. this has caused real estate prices to increase and taxes to increase as we have had to build more schools, roads, houses, etc. This has created a lot of jobs not found in other states. Natives are generally indifferent about this large influx of people. Most people liked things the way they were and don't like being told how much better they did it up north. We feel if things were so great where you came from, why didn't you stay? If you want to fit in, don't criticize so much. If you moved here and don't like it, no one invited you down,so just go back to where you came from.

North Carolina: Beware of this State - 4/16/2014

Upon first arriving in the Triangle in the late '80s, I thought it was beautiful and a relief to the congestion and cold weather of New England. However it was not long before I realized my egregious error. Employed by the old Carolina Power & Light Copany, my work unit was moved into an underground facility that the company knew contained harmful chemicals. (An engineering firm I employed found the company records.)Many in my group got ill. My once perfect heath was gone forever. Two years and many hospitalizations later, I was finally due in court. My attorney was hopeful. But "somehow," the case was dismissed just three days before trial. Despite my damaged health, I managed to get re-employed by Duke. I thought I would be safe there. Wrong again. This institution, along with the rest of this state's charming inhabitants, have no idea what "Christian values" are, despite their constant Bible-thumping. Never in my life have I experienced such virulent hatred for belong to a minority. More federal laws were broken, including the ADA. The population of this state are clueless about the principles upon which this country was founded. They are a lawless and cruel bunch who when backed against the wall with facts, the truth, show their true colors as bullies. Unless you are intellectually impaired and white, southern Baptist, stay out of this hell hole. They destroyed my health and livelihood. Finally, I escaped home, right in time for the Boston Marathon bombings. We Bostonians, with all our oddities, run towards each other in times of trouble. North Carolinians either ignore you or come at you with sticks to beat you into the ground. This is no joke....the only passion North Carolinians possess is hatred for everyone else. Avoid NC. Hopefully, karma exists and these people receive their just desserts.

relocation...not sure what city? - 12/29/2013

to the previous post, well all of America is under unemployed so we cant discourage people from going where they choose to relocate for awhile. im from Georgia and we moved to north Carolina not even caring about the unemployement husband found a job above all other people that live there based on his education, his experience wasn't what Georgia was looking for but north Carolina gave him a chance and he has grown in his business..thanks to north Carolina!!! so never judge what you read here. I know this is a great state the one thing I hate here is that some schools don't have text books in their schools. I have brought it up to the schools officials. so I want to know is where does all that money go? the school my kids goes to don't even have a bus lane and schools here start earlier than most is Georgia. some counties here has the county written on the buses but not where im at now. I can say that I to have a job with in 2 months of being here. so never get discouraged what you read on here. there are pros and cons on every state. so be sure to chat with someone on facebook and ask people that actually live in that state is a great way to find out beside reading but I can say this I live here now and I don't plan on leaving either..the weather is a change too its much colder. it ices up in boone-jefferson areas..theres a lot to do here too. people are nice too but I would not live in charlotte due to crime or durham..but there is crime everywhere but you always have it in major cities in every state I read. I also can say this too there is a lot of Mexican people in northern parts of nc too. no offense just saying I noticed that. any other questions feel free to ask

Retirement - 3/14/2013

We loved Asheville and the surrounding area for a retirement home. My cousin was Miss North Carolina and then Miss America in 1962-63 they used to own the Land of the Sky Ballet as well. I remember visiting there from Toronto in the 1960's and loving it.

Quality of life at Serenity House - 3/6/2013

I moved to Mooresville from New York State in 2001. Not once have I thought about going back to visit. In NY we had a wonderful place in each town called a comfort care home. North Carolina had never heard of such a place. A group of NY transplants got together and developed a beautiful end of life model of care group home in Mooresville. We wanted to give from our experience in NY as well as enjoy what was already here. Stop by at Serenity House in Mooresville and see what quality of life and dignity are all about at the "finish line of life".

relocating - 10/29/2012

Hi; I live in South Florida and considering relocating with my family to a less expensive place. I have been searching North Carolina, specially Charlotte since in general the housing market is much less expensive from where I live. me and my husband ave two children one boy (19) and one daughter (14), so I also need to look for a good public high school. I have been searching North Carolina in general but since I prefer to live in a city I have search Charlotte more than everywhere else. I read some reviews here and to my surprise they are not generally good. As a matter of fact they are scary (high taxes,all types of restriction, distance in commutes, etc. All I want to do is move from South Florida to a less expensive place. Any suggestions

Best kept secret for quiet living. - 4/23/2012

We live in a golf course community but we don't play golf If you like quiet living very few people with children choose to live in golf course communities. They probably think there is not much to do for kids to do and in some places they might be right but we have a nice pool and a beautiful park for the kids. We have 10 homes on our street and only one house has any children so our street is very quiet.
