I live in the 27405 zip code. When I was house hunting. I was looking for a house in a ok neighborhood that I could afford and not be "house poor".. as the others have said it's mixed aera. One side can be nice and the other side sketchy.. one street pretty the next run Down.. I have mixed feelings. Sometimes I feel pretty safe and others I think it's only a matter of time.. I wish the area especially summit would gentrify more. They really should tear down alot of old buildings and shopping centers and make something else. This area does have a country feel to it. Especially being close to browns sumitt yet I'm only about 13 min from downtown so that's nice. Sometimes I wonder though if this part of town is the second worst right after the four seasons area..

That's what I'm saying though... I looked at those areas too and $130K seems to be kind of on the fence. If murph is able to be open to raise the budget by about $20K or so, then he will be able to open his options greatly... including in those areas. If they HAVE to be at $130K or under, they might find something, but they'll have to look really hard and might not get completely what they want. I looked a little more today again for grins.... without the garage I think they could do it. But if they have to have a garage, that seems to be where the $130K gets in the way. But I see quite a few options going up to $150K.

A couple possible examples....

https://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sal...49_rect/12_zm/

https://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sal...39_rect/12_zm/ (this seems to be the best one I've come across in my limited searching)

But again, these are all over $130K... it seems that $130K or so is kind of a stepping point as far as home value in the rural areas surrounding the Triad. If you can bump up the budget just a tad, you can probably get what you want. Heck, some of the homes are close enough to $130K that you might be lucky enough to talk down the seller to your budget.
