I was a real estate broker for many years in Los Angeles, and continued to sell real estate when we moved to the Raleigh/Durham area in 2006. I am currently renovating a 100 year old home near downtown Durham, which we plan to move into this summer. My husband and I also own an investment property in Durham currently.
I would be happy to speak with you via email or on the phone regarding your specific needs as far as investing in the Durham area. There are a huge number of options available under $90,000; you do need to be careful about which areas you invest in in order to maximize the return on your investment.
I hope to hear from you soon!
