Hi James,

I actually have a couple of friends who live there now (and and some who used to live there) in that subdivision. It's a very convenient location...3 story townhomes with a bonus/game/bedroom and/or utility room on the ground floor, main living area on the 2nd floor, and bedrooms upstairs. The average cost per square foot is around $90 and average sales price is around $174K (ranges from 160's to upper 170's).

They've never had any problems there and enjoy the area. I also have friends that live pretty much directly across the street from Pinecrest Townes in Long Lake in similar style 3-story townhomes...Long Lake also has a pool and clubhouse whereas Pincrest Townes does not. The ones in Long Lake are in similar price ranges, but you may be more interested in subdivisions with recreation available. The HOA dues may be higher. I also know of a For Sale By Owner home in Long Lake as well as the ones listed on MLS currently.

If you'd like to take a look at them, let me know and I'd be glad to show you around. Just drop me an email using the website link

Doris - Raleigh has a great variety of excellent neighborhoods, across the area. Then there are surrounding towns and communities like Cary, Holly Springs, Apex, Fuquay-Varina, Pittsboro, Wake Forest, Morrisville, and Clayton that may all fit your requirements.

While there are hundreds of neighborhoods, these neighborhoods also span a wide variety of home prices and features. To help further, what size home or townhouse are you looking to rent, and what is your general budget? This will help narrow your choices down. I'd also suggest checking out CityData for more information on great areas to rent while you're considering a permanent location.

I know many people here from Boston.
Once you realize the Raleigh/Cary area is not as imposing a metropolitan/urban (Downtown) experience as Boston, you can get very comfortable here. The pace can be fast, or about as slow as you want it. Schools are very good in our area.
The climate is beyond compare, IMO.

Hi Todd,

Take a look at the Cotton Mill. You might like that. Currently they have two units available that are 2B/2Ba.
The HOA is considerably less at around $200 per month.

Good Luck!

In general, the Triangle area has seen annual appreciation of about 6% over the past 5 years. Because the appreciation has been slow and steady, prices have not overinflated and market adjustments are much less likely than in many other areas. The area continues to grow. Retirees move here because the weather is good, but prices are much lower than much of Florida. There are major universities and the Research Triangle Park, which draw students and professionals. This area has been called the "Silicon Valley of the East" - but home prices here are less than half of what a comparitive home sells for in the San Jose/San Francisco area. There are sports and cultural activities, and Raleigh is close to the mountains, the ocean, and many lakes and rivers. There's something for everyone!

If you are looking for information on that particular zip code, I'm sure a real estate agent will be able to pull appreciation rates in that specific area.

As usual, location, location, location. Then look at amenites offered, type of housing, qualitiy of the homes, beauty of the neighborhood, schools, etc. All subjective! You'll know by how quickly homes move in a neighborhood and how many are for sale.
