    Joyce,
    I think you will have no trouble. We were thinking of getting a townhouse last year and found quite a few. Older ones are even cheaper, but sometimes the HOA dues are high.
    Bryarton Village has some nice ones, and a pool, close to fairgrounds, but might be a little more than you plan to spend.

    I agree with JBob. There are townhouses all over the place, new and old, too.

    Joyce,
    We were looking at Windbrooke the other day. Rock River swim club is right across the street. Windbrooke is off Evans Road in Cary and it is only about 5 miles to the fairgrounds. It may work. Allow for HOA dues with any townhome.

    i drove through bryarton village today. maybe it was the rain, but it seemed very tight to me, and it looks like parking would be hard.

    It seems like most new townhome developments are very tight.

    I would recommend a newer complex because they usually have lower dues and lower maintenance costs.

    Right. When the 20 year old complexes have assessments to pay off for new roofs and exterior siding, it can boost the dues.
    Some are as high as $180 and more per month.

    Dues are usually lower when the buildings have vinyl siding and vinyl windows

    Look over off Powell for some affordable townhouses.

    well, after some scrimping and saving and some luck at work, it looks like we can budget more. think we can get a nice little house for $190,000, or will it still have to be a townhome?

    Joyce,
    $190,000 will let you see many more properties, from the heart of Cary to North Hills, all of them with good commutes.

    Scottish Hills in Cary has a nice independent recreation and swim club.

    Also, you might find something in N Cary, near River Rock swim and recreation.

    Both facilities are nice.

    Scottish Hills is so pretty, with all the big hardwood trees. My wife and I like it so much better than the new developments with no trees at all.

    One of my favorites, Scottish Hills. Good location too. There is a swim club in the neighbohood which is optional to join, but no mandatory HOA dues.

    scottish hills seems like a bit longer commute than we want. but it is pretty so we may have to drive it once and try it out. :cool:

    We saw some homes in Cary around Harrison Avenue and Maynard that were about your price or less. Not new homes, but they were nice neighborhoods.
