I came down here last week to drop my CRX off in my Cousins garage and search for a house.

Almost bought one but backed out the last minute. The night before I was supposed to sign the papers, I couldn't sleep at all. I loved the house and the 1.13 acres but the neighborhood was pretty scary. Mobile homes all around it were in bad shape. Turns out the area has a major crack problem from what I hear. No wonder the house has been for sale for over a year.

Im heading back to NJ in the next couple days. Sure wish I could have found a house :(

So the search goes on

Good luck Steve. I'm sure you'll find something. Just stay away from those crack-head ghettos. :wink:

Hey Steve,
You may want to try and ask some fellow car enthusiasts (not sure how much help they'll be regarding real estate, but you never know):

Whichever house you buy, make sure it's not within city limits and has a wooded lot of at least an acre. That way when I visit a buddy of mine in NC, I can drop by your place too for some backyard bowhunting. :wink: btw- good call on backing out of that last deal. Never buy something you're not in love with. If you're that unsure before the purchase, just think of all the flaws you will find once you move in.

Im a NC-lifer. Born and raised here, and never wanna leave. I have several friends living in the Raliegh area. Decent area, but I prefer something a little more rural.

You can come bowhunt on my land anytime, Heu. I just bought a 2.5 acre wooded lot full of misc. furry friends. My cousin owns the lot next to mine, and he bags several deer a year out there. I dont think he does much bowhunting though. There's treestands and everything out there already.

You know Brooks, I entertain the thought of moving to the TN KY WV NC area all the time just so I can bowhunt a longer season and in warmer weather. If it weren't for my entire immediate family being here, I'd've already done so. Land out there is pretty reasonable too isn't it? Like five bucks an acre or something like that? :wink:

If you feel like disclosing, what did you get yours for? PM if prefered.

Oh, don't be tellin' me stuff unless you want me holding you to it! :D anything involving bowhunting I'll jump on first chance I get. LOL

I love it here. Ask John (Composimo), he's visited here over Christmas break... its beautiful.

lol, its not quite $5 an acre, but you can get land for cheap. The going rate right now is $5k - $10k an acre for "huntable" type land. Usually on the low side. As you get into "city limits", close to the river and/or lake, etc the price get closer to $10k. Small lots on the lake go for ungodly amounts, of course ($30k to who knows how high for 1/2 acre)...same for the fancy "sub-divisions" and "housing developments".

If I remember right, my 2.5 acres cost me around $14,500. Thats $5800 per acre.

If you're just wanting some "hunting land", some tracts on and around the mountains go for i dunno... $1000 - $4000 an acre. But you may have to buy 20-100 acres at a time!

Check out www.allsizeacreage.com That's a company that sells land in my town...they've got a lot of good pics on their site of the area.

Im serious, man. Anytime you wanna visit, just let me know. All i'll charge you is some Tenderloin or something if you bag one! I'd have to ask my cousin, but Im sure he'd let you use one of his stands.

I registered on there a week ago. Still waiting for activation. I emailed them twice and haven't got a responce yet.

On the way here, I was sitting at McDonalds eating and some guy came up to admire my CRX sitting on the trailer. He told me about the forum and I told him that I was still waiting for activation. His screenname on CarolinaHondas was TwoFocused.

Yeah, I've seen him on ch.com before.
That's kind of the way people are down here, very friendly. I'm sure wherever you choose, you'll love it here!
