$275,000 should get you a nice home; however, l/2 acre is going to put you further out.

For example...you could get a $275,000 in a more desirable area but it will come with .25 of an acre. If you want brand new, you can still get a decent home within 15 min. to RTP but it is going to come with .15 of an area.

Or...you can go to Clayton and get a brand new home with l/2 acre for that amount and still be in a good area.

Wendell...not my favorite. I'd rather go to Clayton (for the land) or Raleigh or Cary (for the shopping).

Once you get here and do some driving around, it will become very clear to you in a very short period of time. It always does!

I have been to this neighborhood. The lot prices are not cheap but are butted up to a utility easement that goes back a ways. The houses are nice. You need to do a good financial analysis of the builder to make sure he is in good financial shape. We were concerned about this. There is a water/sewage plant about a quarter to half mile away. Access to a freeway takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Overall, nice area but much room for future surprises. Farm land is nearby and that could some day be sold and turned into who knows what. Some of the houses nearby are about 15 to 20 years old. The closest properties are nice and well kept. A little further toward town and they are 30 or so years old and kept up ok.
Wendell is the next up and coming area from Raleigh and there are pockets of old structures mixed in with new. Seems like a mix between quaint and big city as far as growth is going. Not a bad town/city. I wouldnt worry about that.

Am here from NYC. Could you recommend places to visit that are building new homes? Looking to spend between 280k and 350k. Any ideas on nice areas? I hear
Clayton is nice but I haven't heard of any new communities being built there.
