Hi,
I am planning to relocate to the Raleigh area this year. I need some advice on where would be most suitable for a single 25 year old. I need advice as to where are some good places to meet people as well. Planning on buying a house or condo in the 130-150K range. Please help
Emily

Although it depends on where you are going to be working in raleigh, I would suggest the cameron village area, or the north hills area. I sent you a private message with more information. Good luck!!!!

Most people that age around here rent, so the neighborhoods that are popular for twenty-somethings these days (ie, areas near downtown) will probably not be the ones you can find a place to buy for that amount. In fact, this whole region has slim pickings for that price range, I'm afraid, as the price of housing continuously goes up.

I actually work with alot of first time homebuyers. There are still townhouses out there in really nice areas for $125,000 to $150,000.

I just sold a brand new beautiful one that was priced at $160,000 BUT the builder was paying for a "buydown" so for the first 3 years...the monthly payment was less than just buying a $140,000 home.

If you look hard enough...you'll find it.
