How to Begin your Home Search in Raleigh, Durham or Chapel Hill, NC

The best approach to finding a new home for sale in the Triangle NC Area

First try to narrow down the location you wish to live in. The areas within the Triangle Area of North Carolina are quite different in many respects and even within the county itself. Wake County has several very desirable communities but each may have its unique appeal to the different home buyers. Your realtor can be helpful in guiding you to the community that best fits your need.

You should already know your price range, so you might begin searching homes in the price range and location on the internet. You may want to drive by some of the homes before asking your Real Estate Agent to show you the homes, as pictures can be deceiving.

Be sure to look at several homes to make comparisons before making your final decision. If you fall in love with the first home you see, still view several others to be sure. Different areas may give you more home for your money, so you may want to broaden your location requirements.

First time buyers are many times surprised and disappointed in the amount of house you can get for your money. As first time home buyers, don’t expect to find your ultimate “dream home.” Your first home may need to be a starter home. If you are picturing your “dream” home you may have a difficult time finding a home. Your Agent can be a great help in advising you on the realities of the current Real Estate Market and what you might find in your price range.
