Hi there, Raleigh is the largest city within Wake County. There are plenty of cities surrounding Raleigh that would make an easy commute to the city. I'm closer to Charlotte, NC but I work with professional and knowledgeable agents in the Raleigh area who would be able to point you in the right area for your price range. If you have further questions feel free to send me an email at any time!
He can sell you his home for whatever he wants to as long as he pays off what he owes on his mortgage, including any secondary loans and assessments. Chances are IF he has an assumable loan, that the rate is most likely HIGHER than what you could get if you got a new one...plus you would have to qualify to assume his as well. It sounds like you have an opportunity to pick up the home for much less than what it could be sold for on the open market. Your best bet is to get a defined balance of what he owes, negotiate the price and then call a local lender to make sure you qualify. If you need any assistance and the seller is willing to kick in a small commission fee to my company, give me a call. My last sale was virtually what you are discussing here and it went very smooth.
There is a program that I use that provides 10,000 towards your down payment and closing costs. It is a zero interest and zero payment loan that is only due when/if you sell the home. I have closed using this program several times and would be happy to assist you. Also I use a 2,000 tax credit program, which enables you to receive a 2,000 tax credit for the life of your loan.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE REQUIREMENTS
1-Must not have owned a home in 3 years.
2-Must have been in the same line of work for 2 years
3-Must make more than 25k but less than 80k
4-Must have 1,000 to put into the deal.
5-640 minimum credit score.

It's hard when you ask on an internet forum, because there might be gaps in trulia's listings. I'd recommend finding a local realtor and specifying that you're looking for a timber home. It's a popular style, so you should be able to find something just about anywhere. http://www.simplyoregon.com.au... more
I completely disagree with Ernie's response. I've resided in rental properties in Charlotte for the last 3 years, and it is exceedingly difficult to find well-priced rentals near good schools. Apartments and houses that know they are in a good school zone will make that information more prominent and will often offer it to people they think have children in order to promote a sale. If you see a rental, as either a house or apartment, that has more square footage, amenities, or other offerings that stand out from the crowd for a ridiculously low price, the odds are fairly good that the school zone in that area is abysmal.... more
It's important to match your neighbors, but I'd consider repaving with asphalt as well. It sounds like concrete isn't the best option for your slope of driveway and the climate. If you do use asphalt, though, you'll probably still need to repair or remove the concrete underneath. http://www.bonnessinc.com/content.php?l=59... more
Hannah had some great suggestions and there are many others as well. Staying closer in to one of the metropolitan type areas would be key. Would depend on what you are looking for in a community or house. If I can be of any assistance to you, don't hesitate to contact me directly .

I would tell you a good idea to place your home on the market first and see what type of activity you are receiving. If its busy, then YES, you should be looking at the same time. A couple of things to keep in mind. The market is active right now so that most sellers will not accept a contingency offer based upon selling your home first. You should probably have a contingency plan on what to do should you not find a place you like either. I just completed a sale this past week where the sellers had to find a month to month apartment rental as their home sold very fast and they are still looking. It's a tough decision to make. If I can be of any assistance to you locally, please don't hesitate to contact me. My personal website is listed below.... more
This all depends on if the bank wins in court. Some banks can't provide all documentations. If you want to settle with your lender contact them, some banks even pay moving credits. But you should discuss all details with your foreclosure attorney.... more
If you are a for sale by owner the post is not allowed; if and when you do list with a broker, ask your agent to post the listing, or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site....... more
Hi Isabella, Thanks for your question and let me be the first to welcome you to the Triangle. If you don't know the area well, or at all, renting first makes good sense- easier to get out of a lease than resale in 12 months if the area isn't what you want. I can show you several areas that might meet your needs. I am currently working with two relo's- one from Chicago and one from Singapore.
Take care... more
