There are many homes available in the low to mid 300's. If you are looking for newer homes or new construction west part of Cary would be ideal. Also you should consider Morrisville. I just closed on a home in Morrisville that was built in 2007 and looked almost new with all the upgrades you want for $350,000. You can go to http://www.livingincary.com and enter your criteria for a listing alert, and every time there is a new listing that matches your criteria, you will get an email. Also you can sign up for Market Insider which will give you the demographic of any zip code or neighborhood you want. Let me know if I can help you in your home search.
Sounds like there are a lot of homes in that price range. Also from the internet you can obtain a lot of information on homes at http://www.zillow.com. At this web site you can search homes based on criteria you put in and get information on that home and the surrounding neighborhood. But letting a real estate agent do the sorting out for you and then showing you homes that you are interested in is a great idea. It is also good to have worked with a loan officer to get pre-qualified ahead of time. If you would like to know what your options are I can help you with that.
