Yes all builders will pay your Agent as long as you disclose so on your initial visit with the builder. Have you been qualified by a Lender already so that the builder does not have to run your credit. I would also like to offer you the ability to lock in today's low interest rate for up to 1 year depending on the build date with a one time free float down should the rate decrease. This will assure no rate spike or hike when you are ready to close on your home.

Nope. Lenders check credit but if you are purchasing all cash, then nobody in the transaction cares about your credit.

We were looking for an answer of how it would affect your home owner's insurance rates, if they were higher or not. I called my insurance agent and she said, it would be probably an additional $20 per year (maybe) due to the fact that when replacing a ceiling, vaulted ceilings are a little more costly to replace than standard. I hope this helps some people. thanks for this forum.... :) ... more

Brian Kurtz answered:
Do you want to work with BUYERS interested in moving to that zip code?

Do you want to be on call 24/7?

Are you willing to field 50-75 of these buyer calls before closing a transaction?

Are you willing to pay additional money for a tool like Follow Up Boss which will ensure that the money you spend on the leads is not wasted but that a powerful response plan and long-term follow-up plan is instantly launched for each and every leads that comes in?

If you answered "No" to any of the above, then this might not be a good source of leads for you. If, however, you can say "YES! I'm cool with that!" then it might be something worth doing.

Gail Ferri Properties answered:
If you just need an agent to rent your house, then most agents in the area would be happy to do that for you. If you have it listed on MLS, you will need to pay the agent whose client signs a lease, a commission, usually about 10% of the first month's rent.

If you need a company to maintain the home and collect rent while are away, then you need a property management company. One of the best in the area is Block and Associates, though there are many smaller companies as well.

Hope this helps.

In my experience working primarily with buyers who work and/or study at Duke or UNC-Chapel Hill, I have found that it depends on the type of visa, as well as employment history and credit scores. If you want to contact me, I can put you in touch with an excellent mortgage broker who will not mislead you. ... more

I've sent an email to you with homes that are currently available for rent. As you are shooting for a Feb. move, the list I've sent may help in narrowing areas down for you. I've only included rentals that allow pets and are pool communities. I did not "limit" the rental amount.

Hi Buckise,
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 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.
