It is a violation for Realtors to answer questions pertaining to this. Visiting the local police department may help answer questions you may have.

Both communities are located in fantastic locations. Wakefield has a few "hot spots": Wine Cellar, Wakefield Tavern, Hyoshi (sushi), Dante's Italian Restaurant, etc. There is plenty to keep the 20 somthing's entertained as well as the older adults. My husband and I have lived in Wakefield for almost ten years and LOVE it. As New York transplants I thought we'd never have the same type of excitement but Wakefield and it's proximity to downtown Raleigh is the perfect combination. There is just about everything within walking distance: Rex Health Complex (urgent care, doctors offices, treatment center as well as an indoor swimming pool health club), 3 major grocery stores, banks banks banks, Movie complex, and even a roller skating rink. Just a few miles down the road is the cute town of Wkae Forest which has a bowling ally....Business thrives here as well as golf. Many neighborhoods have community pools. Come on down. you'll love the life and the being outdoors. A beautiful new Greenway 20 mile trail just opened and it is wonderful. My husband trained for the NYCity Marathon on it. Good Luck! ... more

If this is a foreclosure auction I would recommend caution, extreme caution. First of all you have no idea what you are buying There is no chance to see the interior of the unit prior to the auction and no chance of doing any kind of home inspection to look for latent or hidden defects. Auction investing is for seasoned professionals only and I do mean SEASONED! If you want to invest it's best to first get some experience by doing pre foreclosures, foreclosures, estates or other distress sales. ... more

Hi Sabrina - According to "Walk Score": 6820 Woodbend Drive has minimal transit which means it is possible to get on a bus. The nearest routes are the 8c CAT - Sawmill Connector bus, the 29c CAT - Night North Connector bus and the 2 CAT - Falls of Neuse bus. There are 3 nearby bus routes. Car sharing is available from RelayRides.

Congratulations! I would suggest something that is close to your spouses work to start. Since you mentioned criminal record or drug abuse you may be referring to renting. You may need to consider credit score also. That has a huge impact on renting or buying. ... more

Irina is correct ...Be open and honest up front with landlords and especially if it was a one time event, that happens to a lot of people in this economy I'm sure. I know of someone who was able to get an apartment after going thru a bankruptcy and just sat with and talked to the landlord. They paid an extra month up front over the normal , but did get the apartment. ... more

Tracy Santrock answered:
The statistics in this market indicate that a seller can get 97% of asking price in our market if their home is priced correctly. If the seller has to reduce their price, on average, they get 88% of list price.

The real estate market here is very strong. Inventory is down 23% and sales are up 20%. That means that if you want to low ball a seller you will most likely lose out on that home or not have your offer accepted.

You could try the Colonial Grand Apartments in Brier Creek. I used to live there and the cable is included. You also get washer and dryer. Very nice and open layouts. Not sure if you have kids or not, but not many kids lived there when I did, and they don't have a playground There is an elementary school within walking distance which has a very nice playground. ... more
