Ep 12: Our Experiences Buying a house in Raleigh

Nerve-wracking. Frustrating. Limited.

Three words to describe our experiences buying a house in Raleigh. But, it’s been a dream of ours since we first arrived in Raleigh in 2004 and felt like we arrived home, so we were determined to make it happen.

As Australians with limited permanent resident opportunities, it was quite the arduous 17 year journey to this point.

Dreams can happen. Don’t worry if they take so long, because what you’ll discover along the way is a journey full of twists and turns that is worth savoring.

Allow us to share the experience with you on this week’s episode of the This is Raleigh podcast.
