Neighborhoods on eastern side of Raleigh? Young couple that prefers eclectic area, mature trees to new cookie-cutter neighborhoods.

Asked by Erin E., Lexington, KY Sat Oct 9, 2010

We're looking to relocate to Raleigh or somewhere in between Raleigh and Wilson - I'll be working in Wilson. Don't know where to get started. Don't want a house that is 10 feet from the one next door or has tiny baby trees.

Keep in mind that opinions are often subjective and what may be good for one is not necessarily the case for another--therefore consider doing some of your own homework first--visit areas more than once, possibly chat with locals, look at everything that is important to you, etc., --real estate professionals are prohibited from “steering”—enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

If you are working in Wilson it will be a long commute to the east side edge of Raleigh - 44 miles / 54 mins. Zebulon is 28 miles / 34 mins. Depending on the communte you want will determine the area to live in. There is plenty of room and country left in the Zebulon area. You may also want to consider Clayton - 33 miles / 47 mins. The best thing to do is check out areas surrounding Wilson to narrow down your scope. Then interview an Agent who will take the time to sit down and do a thorough Buyer Consultation with you and will do all the research for you to find just the right home.

Hi Erin,

Eclectic, that is my kind of person. Shame I don't work that far. Follow Anna's advice and do some preliminary checking online. See what types of houses and areas are available in your price range. Think about your "absolute must have" list and your wish list. That will be most helpful for both you and the agent you choose.

Good luck, it is a great time to buy. Enjoy the process, it can be so much fun. Don't forget to talk to a LOCAL lender who you will work with in NC, and get pre-qualified to you know the maximum amount you can purchase.
