I live in ne nc near the va state line. the average rent out here is about 800 a month for a very bad area and about 2250 a month for one of the nicer places. I happened to luck out and a friend of mine is taking care of her mother who is very sick and they are renting me their house for 700 a month in a nice very nice area and if they decide that they want the house back after her mom passes then I can rent her mom’s house for the same price.
both houses are larger than my 1700 sq foot house now.
In the town that my husband is from there is a house on the market for 150k it is a three bed room brick ranch with a full basement and 35 acres of land with it. I agree with who ever said it is location. Tina
