I am looking for an experienced Realtor who knows this area and all the new or fairly new neighborhoods. I have a specific hood in mind but would like to compare. PM me if you have to.

I changed my username since I'm no longer a NJ resident. So if you see my new username in my replies to your PM's, it's still me, Patty nj. And yes, I have little feet.

I am not a realtor but let me suggest that if you do not want to pay insane property taxes ($.95 per $100,000) which could go higher (they promised not to go above $1.00 though) stay away from the Orange county part of Mebane. Go for Alamance county.

We decided against Mebane. But, I got the same exact house in a neighborhood in Wake. and the one in Wake has a community pool, the one in Mebane did not. This is what swayed us away. We had to think of what the kids would be doing as they got older. Where could they go to hang out with their friends in the neighborhood? There really was no good place in the Mebane neighborhood.

Good friends of ours bought out there and they have 4 children who hang out at the neighborhood park~fyi . I am all for moving to mebane/alamance though. wake is too congested, too pricey, and the schools seem to be redistricted every year, that or they're all year round and they cut the school budget too. we are looking to move out to mebane as its supposed to be the next cary???

Oh, well maybe the neighborhood your friends moved to was different then the one I checked out. There was no neighborhood park or pool in the area I looked at, just a big open field with a bench. I don't know about it being the next Cary, In Cary there are plenty of places to shop and have lunch at. Where I looked, in Mebane, you would have to drive 20-30 minutes for shopping other then Walmart. Also, It didn't seem that the homes in Mebane would increase in value for a long time. I was talking to a realtor out that way, who was not associated with the new home community, and she told me the re-sales in Mebane were coming down in price quite a bit. It seems everyone would rather have a new house then a used one. That didn't really matter to me, New or used. In the house I'm having built I'm going to incur the cost of covering all those windows. In the "used" house the window coverings come with it. All's well, my hubby just has a longer commute until he gets transfered back to where he started. Let us know if you do end up there and how it is.
