I'm hoping it would be low enough that I could pay for it outright. (but beware, I'm not good at fixing things.) I would hope that it would be in a quiet area (not many kids, etc.)</p><p>Alternate: a single-wide or similar on a purchased lot.</p><p>Once I choose the area, I'd want to know that I have a temporary place to move to while doing the house search, so I'd need to know that I'd have a temporary place, a room, a monthly apartment, even a weekly motel (if not too expensive). I can move my property from storage here to storage there.</p><p>JohnnyWill<br/>age 62<br/>Springfield.or.Augusta (at) gmail.com</p><br \><br \>1 reply Tue, 04 Mar 2014 02:38:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-trying-to-choose-my-retirement-city-and-need-a-real-estate-agent/530828/ 2014-03-04T02:38:00Z What is going on in AUGUSTA, GA??!! http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-going-on-in-AUGUSTA-GA/538090/ http://www.wjbf.com/story/25327761/growth-at-fort-gordon-means-big-changes-for-augusta#.U1lXunU8w50.facebook<br/><br/>&nbsp;...You thought the market was picking up?
