I am looking for a home in the 300,000 bracket (No more) . Would love to be somewhere close to cary (but not too deep) would that put me at the North side of Raleigh?.. no more than a 30-40 min commute (in bad traffic) to Downtown Raleigh or the Triangle work area... (the place where there are a lot of jobs)... would also love an area with sidewalks and working families, parks, etc. ... any assistance anyone can give will be greatly appreciated...
P.S. I've noticed a couple of realestate folks on line and I'm not working w/anyone... hint, hint
Youíre joking right? You donít have the time or money to investigate an area youíre considering relocating, as in changing your whole lifestyle, to? What in the world makes you think youíll be able to adapt to Raleigh?
Do you have a passion for red clay, pine trees or pork barbeque with vinegar and red pepper?
Please donít consider moving to Raleigh just for financial reasons as Iím sure youíll quickly regret your decision.
For the record, I moved to North Carolina from Crofton Maryland because I genuinely fell in love the way of life in the small town of Wake Forest. Money had little, if anything, to do with my choice to relocate. Oh, and I made at least 10 trips here before finally putting money down to have a house built. I viewed the cost of those trips as far cheaper than making a costly commitment that I could possibly regret later. Word to the wise- do your homework and then take a field trip.
