I am single and already living in Greensboro. I would like to buy a townhome in the $115-150,000 range. Any suggestions on what community/area to buy in? Thank you.

Thank you for the Realtor.com info. I have looked on there and have an idea of the price range in Greensboro that I need to be in. What I really need help in is what community/subdivision would be a good match for a young professional? I keep hearing that the north/N/W is the place to be. Any suggestions?

cotswold ave area is good. so is brassfield areas, new garden, the downtown area would be good. Spencer's Crossing on N. Church st. is new and their still building. so is brandonshire or bradfordshire or something like that being built out in the w. wendover or w. friendly area. the thing about being a young professional and condos around here is that any of them not in run down areas are ok. it starts getting more focused when you decide to have kids.

oh my... there are so many. Depends on where you want to be. Rachel's Keep, Robyn's glen, Cobblestone park, Bridford Downs... It also matters how many bedrooms and how new you want. Looking at my listings right now and and there's over 141 listings.

Do take into consideration the monthly HOA fees, which lately are over $100 a month. So basically add that into your payment when you calculate your budget.

Let me know if I can help.

yeah and any place that doesn't have a pool and still has an HOA over 100 is full excrement del torro. and after calculating that most condo complexes with pools will have children running rampant at the pool every day, for a single person, its not worth cost. plus you never know when one of those kids will crap in the pool and then leave. no lifeguards are on duty and the pool will be rendered useless until someone drains the pool and cleans it. the end result is a waste of money.

And whatever you do, don't buy a unit near said pool or you will never sleep late again while that pool is open. Seriously, kids will be in it yelling and screaming starting at 7am during the summer.
