In for the night, due to yet another hurricane down here. Its time to move inland and further north!!
Hope someone out there can help me. I ve been reading the posts for the past 2-3 weeks and have gotten a lot of good info and insight into the area. Boy, NC is getting the boom that has saturated Florida for the past 15 years...and it all seems to be in fast forward now.
However, most everyone is looking in the 300-400K range for a home and neighborhood.
Can anyone help me with neighborhoods or areas in the 125-150K range. I am looking for a starter home or townhouse. Are there any out there in a safe neighborhood, around or in the not-too-far-out outskirts of Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh. Out there, but still close enough to work and shopping.....say 30 mins.
Also, is there anything in particular to be aware of as far as zoning, or city/county taxes, water, oddities, etc. that you would only know about after one has lived there for years??
Any favorite local restaurants, of any type, with character, reasonably priced...
