If they're building in a location that's too far for you for transportation will they allow you to have a house that's already built in the same city that you stay in

There are many areas in the city that have a rural feeling. Raleigh also allows for chicken coops if you want to get real country. I see rural spots sprinkled throughout the city often in areas you might not expect. For value however, you can be communtable to Raleigh, but get a lot more house for your dollar if you are willing to drive a bit in any direction! Great rural homes can be found in Wake Forest, Youngsville, Pittsboro, Willowsprings, Apex, and the list goes on!!! Once you get pre-approved, I can connect you with the top agents for each area you are considering. ... more

If the neighborhood has relatively quick access (5 minutes or less) to I-540, the travel time during rush traffic is probably minimum 40 minutes and maybe as much as 50 minutes. Contact me if you would like more specific information. Thanks Dianne ... more

Conder Realty, LLC answered:
1st) Print out tax record from, 2nd) Pull deed of trust and all liens for the property(by name or book/page both are on the tax record) from online book of deeds , 3rd) Go to 12th floor of county courthouse and use 1 of 2 computers to pull special proceeding number(exp. SP 11 6511) by name of owner, 4th) Special proceedings will have a hard copy folder listed by number with the hearing date and occasionally the foreclosure date with the opening bid.

From these you can find all owners with addresses they have ever used, who the lender/mortgage company is, all recorded liens against the property(also when at the courthouse, look up judgements against owners to see if there will be any other issues), relative dates, substitute trustee, and other important info.

I go to the courthouse regularly and can do this for you if you prefer. Each property must handle differently depending on the situation. Email me at with your name, phone number, and subject property. Feel free to contact me directly @ 919.896.7131.
