It's a cap shoot. Roanoke is a hard location to figure out. I was born raised and worked here and am 57 years old. Be very careful and be sure what you are buying into. Check surrounding county buying opportunities as my family has done and at least consider the potential. I as is my family are now thankful to live outside the immediate Roanoke area and it's problems. Be wise as problems are everywhere however some a little more palatable. Finally please know that unscrupulous Realtor's and property owners pray on buyers looking for convenience.
