There are 3 counties covered in the TARR Report--Wake, Durham, and Chatham. The web address is Depending on the company you work for, there may be access to even more data.

In the interim, think about client referrals. I have closed several buyers from South Florida this year and they all came to me without a Realtor referral. Hopefully by using this additional option you can stabilize your own finances in this transition. I used to live in Washington, DC and relocated here to Santa Fe nearly 15 years ago.

You can check out and I know there are some good agents from Raleigh that answer on this site. Some them I believe even have rentals. You will need to tell them what you need as far as bedrooms/bathrooms. Then of course if you have any preference to location that really helps. The Raleigh triangle area is a great area.

Good luck

You're correct in your observation that in general South Raleigh is more affordable than other surrounding areas. There are a couple of factors behind this: South Raleigh is farther away from the major employment center in this area, which is RTP. The area historically has a higher rate of rentals when compared to other parts of the city. It also hasn't had the price surge that comes with a new highway since I-540 hasn't reached the area yet. But the area has multiple new developments going in, and downtown revitalization is bringing more jobs back to downtown. With the city's tremendous growth as a whole, it's worth considering South Raleigh. Just make sure you investigate past appreciation rates, school ratings, percentage of rentals, and crime rates, which you should before making a purchase anywhere. ... more
