We're a young couple of grad students considering buying our first home, and we love Durham. We're both studying at UNC, and we'd like to keep our walking/bus riding commutes within reason. Our big considerations are price (grad students and first time homebuyers), access to public transit, and walkability (especially to coffee shops/bars/restaurants/downtown). As far as homes go, I'd say we're more bungalow than ranch, more urban than suburban, and definitely prefer older homes. Right now we live in Chapel Hill, and we're not as familiar with the Durham neighborhoods, so I thought maybe some Durham locals could help me out. What neighborhoods should we be looking at? Thanks!

Do a search for "Robertson bus" and you'll come up with this question having been answered lots of times before.

Also, any neighborhood off the 400 and 405 bus routes from TTA.

Essentially, any urban neighborhood works. I have a friend that bikes each day from Cleveland-Holloway to the bus station, for instance. He also takes the BCC over there when it's raining. At the bus station he connects to the 400 or 405, depending on what time of day it is. The Robertson is quicker, because it's an express route, but it only runs when school is in session.

There is DATA & Triangle Transit that look like they would probably cover the area you want.

From there, it is a matter of mapping out what fits your need (urban, etc) & price range.
