Victory Property Management answered:
Much depends on the type and amount of the repairs. If you are doing a lot of little repairs, why not take what you would pay on the home equity loan and put it towards a repair each month.

Right now , what upgrades are in a home seem to make a large difference.

Brandon Moore answered:

It depends a lot on you what your situation is. Do you have a family? Are you looking to stay in Raleigh or will staying in surrounding areas be okay. There are areas such as Knightdale, Clayton, Garner that offer access to Raleigh without being in the city.

I do have programs that would allow you to get into a home with low to no down payment and would be happy to speak with you about the buying process and answer any questions you may have.
