Hi
I need some insight in to the city and areas where it would be safe and nice to raise a family. I like the arts and a more urban feel so I would like to be in the beltline I think. Interested in a townhouse or home or something that need work no more than 200,00...but really 175

That's not going to be very easy to find IBT. I would look just outside the beltline and drive in when you want the arts/urban stuff. You might consider Durham as well.

Very doable.
There are several ITB neighborhoods where you can get a house for $175K or less.
Might be a small house, or need some work, but they are out there.
Actually, the townhomes are a little harder to find in that price range, but you might find one near St. Mary's. Older and likely needing work..

Belvidere Park offers opportunities. Under 1000 SF, but fairly well located.
Woodcrest routinely sells for mid-100's.
You might still find something in HiMount or Georgetown, too.
And if you are serious about a fixer, you can expand your opportunity.

Anyway, it is quite feasible to get into easy reach of Downtown and stay on a budget.

I'd look in the neighborhood SW of NC State area bounded by Avent Ferry on the East, the Beltline on the West and Western Blvd to the North. I am sure that area has a name (or a few) but I can't think of it off the top of my head. I think this area of ITB is one of the last places to find a good value...but, then again, it might be too late to get into that 'hood for under 200K.
