Townhomes, on the other hand, will begin in the mid $200,000s. Affordable, adorable, and well within the coveted $200,000 to $400,000 price range.

The customization options are endless. Regardless of the floor plan you choose, here are some customization options:

  • Covered or screened porch

Fortunately, these builders offer a design center where you can take a look at all of your design and customization options in person. Personal design consultants are available, too. The design center for Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill area is located conveniently in Cary right off of I-40.
