Looking to buy a house in the Cary/Morrisville area in the next 3-6 months, a few preferences:

- Newer home (less than 5-6 years old)
- 20-25 mins to RTP (one job), and 30-35mins to North Raleigh (other job), so most of Apex is outside our range
- prefer a sub-division, not a stand-alone home
- wooded lots with access to trails
- pool/amenities nice to have (but not a must)
- good school is not an immediate issue (but nice to have to help future resale)

We looked at the following, and our initial impressions of pros/cons in roughly our order of preference:

Copperleaf - good community, lots of nice homes, but at our highest end (and beyond), seems like well established so we may be buying at the (relative) peak

Governor's row - just one street of homes, so not a feel of "community"

Green Level crossing - nice, large homes, but not custom quality

Horton's creek - nice quiet area with pool/amenities, but location seems remote without easy access to central Cary activities

Weycroft - nice quiet area, and homes ranging from $400 to $700. Because of the wide range i price, are the higher priced homes likely to come down in price to the lower range in future when time for resale?

Highcroft - convenient location, but homes are close together without much open space

Cameron Pond - OK, but too close to new 540, apparently in lawsuits etc.

Any further suggestions welcome!

Have you considered the North Raleigh area? If you haven't, take a look at Brier Creek. Again, N. Raleigh...Bedford? And my favorite...Ethan's Glen.

As for the Cary area...Bishop's Gate? Cary Park? Weycroft?

You have tons of options...be careful in this price point as right now, it is difficult to sell. However, being a buyer, you should get a really good price.

Thank you Mike and Vicki.

We will check out the suggested areas. (though North beyond Brier Creek is out of our area)

Take a look at the new section of Abbington in Apex. Only a couple of minutes beyond the West Cary neighborhoods you looked at via Green Level Church Road and once the new section of 540 opens you are right near an interchange without being on top of it.
Good lot sizes and quality custom homes in a stable and established location.

Positively agree.

I just passed because the OP passed on Apex, but Stratford at Abbington is far enough from the freeway and close enough to the interchange it could be the ticket in a couple of years when 540 is open.

There are only a few homesites still available, however.
