Our company is relocating us to Roanoke. Looking forward to getting away from these hurricanes in Florida. Had enough. Also welcome the change of season, cooler weather (yes, tired of this brutal heat) and a bit of a "less stressful" town. Central Florida is hectic, crowded-getting more so everday-and very expensive. My question, hopefully for a local, is how is the hospitality? Fairly open to new residents? I also understand the cost of living there is considerable less than Central Florida. What's the housing market like right now, much available there?
