Can anyone recommend builders in the Apex, Cary, Morrisville area? We're looking to stay under $210,000. Thanks.

In that price range, why don't you go with a slightly older home? You aren't going to get much new construction for that in Cary...more in Apex maybe...but...still. You will get more for your money in something standing.

Only condos and townhomes for that price in Apex. New single-family houses on .10 or smaller lots are in the upper 200's. I'd definitely go with an older house.

I don't know much about Apex to be honest....figured prices had to be cheaper then Cary though...doesn't seem like by much.

When we were looking, we looked at all manner of homes....older, new construction, recently built but lived in....unless you have more then 300k or 400k....chances are you are going to have to keep your options open.

There are several townhome communities that fit your price criteria.
Do you want a garage, two or three story home,
etc?

Twin Lakes, Providence Place, Keystone Crossings, Haddon Hall, all come to mind.
Bungalow Park at Scotts Mill is done by Preservation Homes. I like their stuff.
If you would venture into Holly Springs, I like the units at Twisted Creek.

Toll Brothers advertises their townhomes in the $200s here at Olde Carpenter, but I have no idea if that's the upper $200s or not. So misleading when they do things like that. Apex is slated to be the 'next' Cary, from what my husband hears?

Does anybody know of builders in the Morrisville, Cary area with a good reputation. Looking to buy a townhome or single family home for around 250K. I like the KB floor plan but heard their reputation was not the best in other states. I like The village at Providence place on Church street rooms are large and I have 3 kids so I was looking at them as well. I have read they have had problems with mold and others things in other states. Can anyone reccommend some good builders to me or good subdivisions? It is scary because it is a big decision. If you live in Twin Lakes or The Village at Providence or have had problems with these builders in Cary area please respond. I also like Centex as well but am new to NC and just want to make the right decision. Any information will be appreciated

Home is your biggest investment and there should be much thought process and is very complex for an average person. From what I heard from my clients, they are happy with KHovnanian homes in Providence Place. Regardless of who you choose, remember the agent at Builder's office working for their boss (builder), they are not obligated to protect your interest. A buyer agent representing your interest is recommended in any transaction. Goodluck!

Is Buyer's agent really necessary for the new home? I am not sure what buyer's agent can do if you already know what you want and builder is not flexible in their price and terms. You can search the comps easily thourgh the wake county web site and agent cannot change the contract with home builders.

Camden Townhomes in Cary Park might be an option for some. It's a 3 story townhome community by a builder called Gateway Homes. The location is great and the prices very reasonable for Cary, the starting price is $150K and you can anticipate to pay between $170K and $200K as a final price.
