Sorry I haven't replied-- been quite busy here lately!
Hubby is looking near Portsmouth pending a job.. Not sure yet.
I spoke to him the other night and we discussed the possibility of thinking away from there for now... just because we have yet to hear back. Both of us are considering alternative job routes soooo.. that being said.. Ryan and I were looking around and found some decent deals in Manchester. Anyone have some advice on good complexes that you (or friends/family) have rented at and had good experiences?
As for city/town whatever.. We're looking to go smaller than where we currently are which doesn't seem to be a problem :) We're in Madison WI at the moment and that has a low end estimate of 250,000 people. We don't really want to be in the boonies just yet because we'll only have one car which means we'll either have to carpool or one of us (probably me) will find another mode of transport.
Also! Does anyone know of anywhere that would need a receptionist, data entry clerk, administrative support person? That's what I do. I also can do Relay (if anyone's heard of it.. for the deaf/hard of hearing/speech disabled). I'm finishing up school to be a Med. Transcriptionist but am pursuing other work in the event that I'm unable to locate a job quickly enough after graduation (it's an at-home position).
Thanks much~~

I would suggest Manchester. They call it a city but it is just a big town. Jobs, transportation, it is all there and a smaller "city" than where you are. By half at least. We spent our first year there while job hunting. We lived in the millyard, but the rent was going up so we moved to a smaller town. There are parts of town that are reasonable and still pleasant. And lots of friendly free staters to meet and get to know.

If you're still looking around Portsmouth, I still have at least one room available at my house in Seabrook.  Porcs don't need a lease or a security deposit, and discounts are offered for folks willing to do landscaping, cleaning, and work around the house.  I am also looking for furniture, electronic equipment (stereo, game system/DVD player, etc) to fill the house, which is still largely empty.  If anyone has any of that stuff in good condition and is willing to part with it for a fair price, let me know.

I'm uncertain of your exact requirements, but you might want to check:  http://www.switchboard.com/Apartments/Portsmouth/NH/73-/yellowpages.htm.
With a quick glance I found a number of places that might interest you.

They freak me out, too, and I'm not looking in Portsmouth. In Manchester, you can expect to pay at least $900 for a decent 2 bedroom. Less if you're okay with having crack addict neighbors and poor insulation.

Expect this to be a LOT higher if you look in Portsmouth.

You might even want to consider buying a condo.  What you pay every month is about the same as an apartment, and you actually build some equity in those.  After a few years, you sell the condo and

There are some one bedroom condos here in Seabrook very close to the beach for $99K.  Two bedrooms can be had for $149K, letting you rent .  Condos are not a great investment, but it beats renting an apartment any day of the week and twice on Sunday.  That is to say that your monthly rent just turns into a monthly mortgage payment.  You have to hold on to a house for about three years before you beat renting, but with condos, you are breaking even in the first year.

Also, as an owner, you can usually do what you want.  You're not responsible to anyone else.  A pet smell or damage might make it tougher to sell later on down the road.  Still, a condo is almost always a better deal than renting, and costs about the same per month.
