Towns of where to buy a house.....Looking for a housing budget range of $175-200K
My husband relocated from upstate NY to work in High Point and the plan is to join when youngest graduates next Spring(Schools not a priority). We have lived in NYC/Albany and upstate NY -- first time south!
We love Kernersville temp housing area but not finding the flat backyard we would like. Newer developments/houses being built on top of each other...built 2 houses really don't want to go down that path again.
Looking for suggestions of towns that have a reasonable commute to HP. Open to areas up to a 30 min commute to HP. Would love a pool (need for flat backyard/not interested in a community pool). Also would love to be only 5-10 min from stores but not necessary.
Thank you for any suggestions on why specifically you like the area you are suggesting.

With that budget, I'd look in Davidson County...Thomasville, Lexington, Midway, Wallburg. I wouldn't give up on Kernersville either. Plenty of older neighborhoods where I would certainly think you could find a flat backyard.

You will have a ton of options in that price range for older homes, though there won't be all that many with pools. We love having our own pool as well. We're near Wallburg. We'd sell ours but it would be double your price range. You can probably be within minutes of the job - I doubt you'll have to settle for a 30 minute commute.

Hi pattig45. Lots of older, more settled homes in that price range in the Jamestown area as well. You might like the small downtown feel and sidewalks. It's worth checking out!
