Replacing cabinets in a home can be quite costly even in a small kitchen. Those cabinets are definitely in need of a face lift. However you will probably be better of dressing them up rather than replacing them. Also buyers in today's market are not a fan of white appliances. ... more

Which prison? Central Prison (Men) is west of downtown, near NC State. The Women's Prison is ieast of downtown. It depends on whether you are more interested in proximity or cost.

Either way - you'll want to rent for a minimum of 6 months so that you can browse around. I'd recommend Rennaisance Park. ... more

Try looking in the Brier Creek area in North Raleigh. Might find a one car garage to go with that. Drive the Triangle in less than 20/30 minutes in any direction. Beaches to the East, Mountains to the West. ... more

Congratulations! Your next step is to talk with a mortgage loan officer so that you'll know how much home you can purchase - and when.

In the meantime: enjoy looking around!

In Wakefield you can expect a range of 1,600-4,000, depending on the square footage, 2,200 sq. ft. or so up to 4,000 sq. ft.

Hope this helps.

Keep in mind that when you are ready and need to sell, no matter the area, it's always a good time to sell--as for average days--they will vary, based on location, price, property size, schools, condition, etc. ... more

Mr. Casabuyer,( funny name)

Chatsworth is a very high end community and has only had 2 sales in the past 12 months. One of those sales being a short sale and the other a regular market sale. When looking at list price to sales price the difference between both of these sales was about 5%. Keep in mind that this does not take into consideration the original list price to sales price. If it did then the short sale original list to sales price difference would be more like 27%. If a property is priced correctly it should be somewhere around the 5% level.

There are currently 7 houses on the market in Chatsworth priced from $674,900 to $1,995,000. But are they priced correctly? That is the question of the day. There will need to be more homework done than a quick answer to answer that question. I would be happy to look into that for you, just call me at 919-610-5203.

Have a great weekend!

There are no set standards as to how much less to offer--you need to review recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, review the data and make your determination as to a fair offer--is the property priced on target for today's market or slightly below--if so, multiple offers may occur--you agent can best advise as it relates to your specific situation. ... more

Vickie, it really depends on the lender and how the home is priced to begin with. Homes here tend to be priced about the market value, taking into account the short sale, foreclosure drop. There can be some deals depending on condition. ... more
