Fayetteville, NC in the news

Living in Fayetteville, NC

Located some 65 miles south of Raleigh, NC, Fayetteville may best be known as the home of one of the largest military bases in the world, Fort Bragg, but the charming community is a lot more than that. With top-rated golf courses, beautiful scenery and warm weather almost year-round, Fayetteville renters have plenty of opportunities to explore the great outdoors. The low cost of living and well-rated schools appeal to both young families and retirees — especially retired military personnel. In addition, Fayetteville is located less than two hours away from pristine beaches and misty mountains. With a significant military base, including an Air Force center, some noise pollution is to be expected.

Renting in Fayetteville, NC

As is often the case with a transient population, more people rent their homes in Fayetteville than own their property. In a time when real estate has become a significant expense in most of the country, renting is refreshingly affordable in Fayetteville, well below the national average and North Carolina’s average. The most desirable places to rent in, with higher-rated schools and better safety levels, are located in the northwestern part of the town around Pinehurst, Vanstory Hills, and Westover. North Carolina laws are very specific when it comes to security deposits that renters are required to put forward, so the amounts vary according to the length of the lease agreement. Landlords aren’t allowed to ask for deposits that exceed two weeks if the tenancy is week-to-week, one and a half months if the tenancy is month-to-month, and two months’ rent for longer terms.
