Are there homes over the stores at North Hills? If so are they for sale or rent? If you want to live at North Hills what is the most reasonable location to look at that is also walking distance to North Hills. If your income is in the 200's, can we afford this area? We are recent empty nesters, and want less space, not more.

At North Hills East there are apartments only for rent over the stores( I think rental only)....I believe the condo sales projects over there are on hold at the present.

At North Hills on the west side of Six Forks there are offices only over the stores...The Lassiter(west of Lassiter Mill Rd. does have rental units over the stores. A condo sales project is also on hold there as well.

Within a few miles (not really walking distance) to North Hills are many older neighborhoods with smaller single family detached homes. You should find them to start in the price point of $225,000. Of course, you can find larger homes in that area but they are going to be pricey.

As for the condo projects, I'm not that familiar with them so I'll leave that question to those that have done some research on that.

Stay away from John Kane's properties unless you want to spend a king's ransom.

His new rental property in North Hills, Park & Market, is nice but NYC rents.

I have a friend at Lassiter and she loves it. Very convenient and all the space she needs.

AGREE 100%. For that kind of cash you can get a nice house in an established neighborhood with in a block or 2. I grew up in North Hills in a nice house and it is so much better than a condo over north hills.

Wow, I guess I believe everyone is entitled to their opinion. Many choose a condo for reasons such as no yard maintenance, convenience of location, etc. So, price is not the only factor. Similar to our decision not to buy a much bigger house farther out from town in a new subdivision that we could have had for the same price we paid for a smaller house, in a cool old neighborhood, with lots of old trees, walking distance from restaurants and stores and near to downtown where I believe the "action is". Some people wouldn't be caught dead in our neighborhood. Doesn't make either "better" than the other. Different strokes for different folks.

Why are people so quick to condemn others choices?

People love living over there in those pricey apartments. They don't worry about upkeep or yard work. Parking is gated. They have a nice place to walk their dogs, and everybody seems to have one. Convenience is steps away and you cannot beat the location with a stick. Folks seems pretty happy renting in North Hills. That's got to be worth something.

I'm not condemning anyone's choice, just giving my opinion. If I'm buying a property for myself I want a yard to work in, I don't want to live on top of a parking garage and I want to know about my neighborhood and not have 500 neighbors. That's my opinion from growing up in north hills for 24 years, that's all.

^^Agreed. But, I'm also a local. If this was a new place I was moving to, maybe I'd feel safer renting, yanno?
