We are actually moving to the Raleigh/Durham area, and we have been looking for a townhome. We looked at townhomes in the SW Durham area and in Brier Creek Country Club. We really liked the townhomes in Brier Creek Country Club, but we noticed there are quite a few on the market right now, and we are wondering if there is a reason. Additionally, we may only be in the area for a few years and we were wondering if there is a rental market for these homes.

We are sure that the homes we looked at in SW Durham, in Hope Valley Farms, have an active rental market. However, they weren't as nice (in our opinion) as the homes in Brier Creek Country Club. Does anyone have any thoughts also on the homes in Elm Grove in Hope Valley Farms. We looked at a few 3 BR places there. We are aware that it isn't in a very good school district, but we don't have any school age children (just a baby).

We are also interested in hearing if there are any other areas we should be looking in. We looked in the Auburn community, but this wasn't interesting to us. Woodlake and Woodcroft had only 2 BR units available on the market. Wyndcross was interesting to us as well, and we are waiting to see what else comes on the market in that area.

I pet sit for a client who rents a townhouse in Brier Creek. They are nice townhomes, but parking can be a pain if you have guest over. There have been times people will park at the end of a dead end and I had to inch my way out of her driveway. I'm always over there in the middle of the day so I imagine it is worse in the evenings. There are also a lot of rentals in the community too. I imagine there are a few on the market b/c people have lived there for a while and are ready to purchase a larger home. I also had a client in Audubon and didn't care for those either. I have clients in Woodcroft and love the neighborhood b/c of all the trees and paths. It's also much more private than the other two. I am not familiar with the Hope Valley ones, but from what I have seen they seem like a cross between the others (newer than Woodcroft and a little more private than Brier
Creek and Audubon).

Anyways, that's just my experience as a pet sitter. So hopefully I helped with any parking/walking the neighborhood questions!

Do you know anything about the townhomes in the country club? They have private driveways and garages. I am glad to know that there is a good rental market. Your information is very helpful!

Sorry I am not just getting back to you! The townhomes I am talking about are the "Townhomes of Brier Creek" with the one car garages next to the 55+ apartments (or condos, can't remember which). I completely forgot about the townhomes throughout Brier Creek with the two car garages These are bigger and nicer, and I'm sure quite a bit pricier. The also seem quieter with more privacy. Some back up to woods, others the golf course, and a few to the pond at the condos across from Chick-fil-A.

We just sold ours in there. A lot are on the market because people bought them really cheap and are going to make 40k. We bought a bit later and made only half of that. Location is everything with that place as the construction is not very good at all and the design of the subdivision is poor.
