Three car garages are also available.
Here are 250 basement homes between $500,000--$800,000:
When we moved here from Florida 13 years ago, we inquired about basement homes as well. At that time, we were told we could have one but, the reason there weren't very many was because they had problems with moisture. I think you can find a lot of reasons many homes here don't have basements.
However, there are plenty of homes that do have basements. And, there are plenty of lots available to build basement homes on. There is an additional cost for a basement and not everyone chooses to pay that cost. Some basements are simple unfinished spaces while others are elaborate entertaining areas. I have known some people with a tall crawl space to put in a basement years after their home was complete. Because of our rolling hills, you'll have some lots in a neighborhood that work well for a basement and others that are too flat. Youâ€™ll have some basements built with concrete blocks and others with poured concrete. By the way, basements donâ€™t necessarily have moisture problems. A good home inspector can do moisture reading for you.
As for 3 car garages, when we moved here we found a lot of older homes didn't have a garage and newer homes that only had a 1 car garage. As more people have moved here, the demand for more garage space has increased and most people want at least a 2 car garage. However, some folks, such as 1st time homebuyers, are just happy to have a home. Most of the time, you'll find homes with a 3+ car garage to be a larger perhaps luxury home with a bigger price tag.
One thing I love about this area is youâ€™ll meet people from all over the US and world. With that comes different expectations, needs, and wants. You can just imagine the fun builders have trying to keep up with the latest demands.
This is a beautiful area with a lot to offer. If youâ€™re planning to move here, get yourself a good Realtor who can help you find the perfect home for you and educate you on the local housing market. Best of Luck!
yes we have many homes with 3 car garages and basements or 2 car attached and 2 car detached. Price range would be in the mid $300's and up. Let me know if you want me to update you on these listings. YOu can call me and also discuss further your moving plans and if you have any scheduled trips to the area where you can view these homes in person. When I did my search I found over 25 homes that fit the search criteria within the 300k-600k range.

I happen to have a basement home listed in Cary NC. Basements are not the norm but exist in the Triangle.

While it is possible to "dig" a basement, building codes make that an expensive option. As I understand it, current N.C. building codes say that all habitable rooms shall be provided with window area of not less than 8% of the total floor area of such rooms and that half of those windows be openable. In a 1000 sq. ft. basement, that now would require about 40 of those 2 sq. ft window-well windows. If there is a bedroom in the basement, there must an emergency escape window no more than 44 inches from the interior floor. Because of these codes, which are for our protection, the cost of construction far exceeds what the average person can afford.
What you're more likely to find here is a finished (or finishable) attic or a Bonus Room over the garage.
We do have some basement homes, but due to a low water table in our area we do not have a lot of the traditional basements as in the North, I am from the D.C. area and we had them there as well. The larger homes have 3 car garages.
If I can help you search for a new home I would love to, in North Carolina my services to you as a buyers agent are at no cost to you.
As far as three car garages go, it really does depend on price point. In all of Wake County, there are only five new homes currently listed on the MLS for under $350K with three car garages. Larger garages get a lot more common as the budget increases.
Please let me know if you have any other questions about our area.
We do have some homes that have basements although they're not as commonly found here as they are in Detroit. I'm originally from the Midwest myself (Indiana) and had difficulty getting used to that. We are seeing many with three car garages. The main consideration to finding those is price point.
Please let me know if I can help you further!
