I am getting confused, because I am hearing about differant subdivisions. I need to know where is there affordable rental homes ($750 3 bd home) and good resources *Year-round would benifit him greatly* in the schools for Developmentally Delayed (autistic, ADHD) child? PLease help answer this especially if you have a child in a good special education program in Raleigh. Thank you soooo much in advance.

I did a search on a real estate site that can't be posted here, and I found a dozen 3-bedroom homes for $750 or less within ten miles of Durham. They were all spread out, so it would be impossible to give an area or subdivision where homes like that are found.

The district websites should tell you which schools are year-round.

Sometimes when a school does well with special needs kids, it is really because of one (or several) outstanding teachers and a supportive administrator. Someone could say, "XXX school has a wonderful program!" But if a particular teacher or administrator leaves, the "wonderful program" may be gone, too.

Arrow affordable SAFE housing in Raleigh? Subdivisions?

Due to my research on crime logs, I prefer not to be in Durham area. I do quite a bit of research on my own, including rentals available. I specifically asked about Raleigh. Is there a reason you posted about Durham (such as prices)? Interesting point about the school program being the specific teacher(s). That doesn't tell me about year round schools. I emailed and got no response from the school district. Still, the question remains, is there affordable SAFE housing in Raleigh? What are the differant subdivisions? Can anyone describe them? Asking in the forums is a lot differant than looking in a newspaper for "listings". Thanks.

There IS lots of safe housing in raleigh, though you will be hard pressed to find a 3bdrm house for 750 in a safe area. the person below probably suggested durham because they have houses in your price range, though probably not what you'd consider very safe....i've been looking for 3bdrm houses in the surrounding areas for the past month or so for myself and two friends, and had a hard time finding anything under 900, let alone even CLOSE to 750...i ended up picking a house for 950 because its a single home and in a safe area...i'd rather spend more money being able to sleep at night knowing i wont get my car vandalized or my place broken into. unless youre really really lucky, you usually get what you pay for...

go by average price range of homes in the zip code and you will be on the right track. From Capital Blvd. North, go west around to and including Cary generally.

I have 2 DD children (1 severe and 1 very minor who overcame and excelled) and I can tell you that the school system offerings for DD children are very uniform throughout the system, so just use the criteria you would use to select where you want to live based on schools that anyone else would.

In general, Southeast Raleigh is where you'd want to avoid, since you asked at that level of granularity. Northeast, especially east of Capital, can be dicey as well. Northwest, being the side toward RTP, is where most of the new construction is but also probably out of your price rance. West/Southwest isn't as easily "defined" in one statement as the other areas, but it ranges from NCSU student-ish housing to older neighborhoods where you might in fact find something that's in your price range. I think of it as a slightly "seen better days" area but not one that has gone to seed or is unsafe--just that there are, say, a lot of '50s-'60s ranch houses, for example.

Absolutely NOT the Riverwood school system in Johnston County. They have basically little or NO experience with Autistic kids. In fact from what I understand, North Carolina does not even require their teachers to have certifications!!

That system does not include Johnston County from what I have seen.
