I put my condo up for sale and said to myself, "If I get an offer, I'm goin'."

I just got an offer. We're not in contract yet so I've still got my fingers crossed, but this very well could be it!

Now....I need a place to live in VA!! We were looking at Fredricksburgh since it's cheaper and still driveable for interviews in either the Beltway or Richmond areas.

So I need Apartments! Washingtonpost has a few. If anyone sees anything for under say...$700 a month, large 1br or 2br let me know!!!!

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!

edit: Oh and I'm gonna need broadband. Who's in the area with that?

BennyFranklin - If you haven't already, do a search on Apartment Finder, etc. for apartments in your price range.
Also, if you like, I can give the name of a realtor to talk to who is a friend of mine.

Check with your cable company once you find an Apt to see it they offer cable internet access.

And welcome to VA!

We're planning to be down in VA Wed, Thurs...possibly Fri of next week (30th, 1st, 2nd)

KP - I saw some online stuff thanks. I'll have to make a few calls. Our problem is neither of us have jobs moving in. Chimb's mom said it's gonna be hard going with a 'company' apartment rental since they like to see income. I'll have better luck with just a private rental. But I'll be trying anyway.

I saw the fredburgh site already, but man I never thought about looking at the homes for rent. Didn't think they'd be like that. That one's perfect!

Oh and I've been dying to do IDPA for a while now. Never had time or guys I could shoot with.

Don't worry there is plenty of shooting if you commute up and down 95!

I've only shot one match, but man was it fun. The people I've met there have been really nice too.

Welcome to Virginia!

My cable internet is through Comcast, they're a decent company in my experience. I don't know if they're available in F-burg though.

I'm south of Richmond, about 20 miles down I95.

Stay away from Bragg Hill, Heritage Park, and Snowden. I live in Malvern Lakes and will recommend it, but the price is kind of high and I don't think they have any 1 bd available. But there is a background check and no section 8.

What kind of work do you do?

Our plans are still set to go so we'll be in VA Wed & Thurs.

...we now return you to our regularly scheduled thread....




I'm not liking some of the online apartments I'm finding and in some cases they aren't liking me due to the tax credit housing thing. Where are the average type places in VA to find people posting apartments for rent? Like supermarket bulletin boards or ... what? The Free-Lance Star doesn't have much in our price range that isn't a share situtation.

Hi Benny, Ed here helped us find our Townhouse here in fredericksburg. He is a good guy. Price range may not what you were expecting though. Give him a call you have nothing to lose he may have something for you.
Tell him Nick and Maria sent you.
Good luck!

Update:

Got approval on an apartment. It's in Breezewood about 7 minutes from Rt.3 in Fredericksburg. The place looked nice....I hope it's not a crack den.

I sign the lease on June 9 and get phone/cable/internet going. We'll probably move all our stuff sometime the week of the 15th.

I'm so damn nervous I'm about to pop.

Hey Benny,
Lived in Breezwood for a year while our home was being built. Lovely little neighborhood. Castiglia pizza around the corner is GREAT. My wife and I live about 7-8 minutes away from you, over in Artllery ridge. Drop me a line and we will get together one weekend. I work evenings. I am home most mornings too.

Nick

Put a post out when you get settled in, us Fredericksburgers should get together and have some sandwiches at Spanky's or something like that.
Link Posted: 5/14/2003 10:30:43 PM EDT
I'm up for that. Would be a nice way to greet Benny and meet each other.
Link Posted: 5/15/2003 10:27:22 AM EDT
Will do.

Right now we're packing my girlfriend's stuff from here place and moving it over here....just to move it again down to VA. It's nuts.

I'll be down on the 9th to sign the lease and get phone/internet setup, then the house gets loaded up around the 18th. So by the end of June, early July I'll be all set to roll.

Everything still going according to plans?

Link Posted: 6/6/2003 10:06:59 AM EDT
Yup, leaving NY at like 5AM Monday so I'm there in time to do lease stuff. Have all my utils set to start on the 9th or 10th and will be back in NY the 11th to continue packing.

Unload window is the 21st-24th right now.
