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.
