We're finally on our way from NJ to NC. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbsup"><br>
If anyone knows of any rentals that would be available the beginning of June, I would love the info. We would like 3 bedrms (one big enough for a king size bed for all of us), DH needs some kind of storage (shed, garage, barn) for his tools and would like to be somewhat rural, private. We have a great dog, that is mostly outside (with his fur, he gets too hot inside). $1000ish or less rent. DH is a contractor so if anyone needs work for rent that could work too. We have found some houses through craigslist, real estate agencies & the classifieds but I figured I would ask here too.<br><br>
We should be closing on our house here May 31st. We are gonna head down mid-May to check out houses & so DH can interview for jobs. He may end up moving first & starting a job & I'll head down after DS finishes school here. Figuring out all the logistics is crazy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br>
Thank you sooooo much to everyone that has helped me, answered questions, etc. Making this big move has been so much easier because of that. Everytime I get doubtful or discouraged I read the Asheville posts & it helps me keep motivated.

Are you checking the iwannas? <a href="http://www.iwanna.com" target="_blank">www.iwanna.com</a>. IMO, it is the ONLY way to get a good deal on a rental. Any house that sits on the rental market for more than 2 days is not a good deal. We lived at the hostel downtown (camping) for a few weeks, so we could snag the good deal when we found it (the iwannas only come out on Tuesdays). And we did! 3b/1b 2 blks from Haywood in hip West asheville, allows dogs, safe neighborhood, etc. I also called the ad at 8am, drove to look at it immediatly, and called back the landlord at about 8:20 - he said I could have it (I wasn't allowed to look inside, b/c tenants were still in it), if I could sign papers right then, because in that time he had already had 20+ other calls about it!!

Also check Craigslist.com and the mountain express ads online. The mountain express is updated every wednesday...i think...as the paper comes out every thur. Good luck finding a rental. It is tough in this town. We just recently moved in from out of town and it took a couple of trips to finally get one. This is a good time of year to find a rental though.
