Unforutunately, there's many relocated Red Sox as well.

My father is retired and lives in NJ. His taxes are really hurting him too. Life down here is sooo different, for the better. I have 2 at West Johnston and am very happy with that school. There are 2 areas in Johnston County where you can get a very nice affordable home with good schools and that's Clayton and also the Cleveland area (to locals its 40/42). Its an unincorporated area in western Johnston County - the Cleveland Township. You can't search for homes specifically in this area since it isn't a town but do look at homes there. As far as Wake Forest, it's a lovely quaint town. My issue with it is it's sooo far down Route 1 and the traffic is a nightmare. I know I40 traffic can be an issue but Wake Forest is much farther away. I'm originally from the suburbs of Philly and I wanted to get away from traffic so I would never live there. I think that any school is fine, its the teacher that makes or breaks a child's experience. Best of luck on your move. Come for a visit and you'll see what we're all talking about -- and don't forget to look at the Cleveland area

Default Comtemplating a move in a few years

My husband & I will retire in a few years and are thinking of buying a house now to rent until we do move down. Can anyone tell me what the rental market is like in Clayton, Knightdale and Angier? Also, what are your opinions of these 3 towns? Thanks so much for any comments and advice.

Knightdale is much closer to everything than the other places you mentioned. We have a Target, Walmart, TJMaxx, Petsmart, Dick's Sporting Goods, Kohls, and the usual restaurants and medical offices. The nearest Mall is 10 minutes away. We have a new park with dog park and the amphitheater is being built. And, if you like comedy, Goodnight's club in Raleigh is straight down hwy 64 and 15-20 minute drive non rush hour. And downtown Raleigh has some great indy restaurants and museums. However, all areas are reasonably priced and safe places to live. And are growing communities. Clayton has a lot of NE transplants there, not sure about Angier? Knightdale tends to have more locals and the usual mix of folks from all over world and US. My cul de sac is like United Nations

RaleighLass thank you for the information! Do you know anything about the rental markets in Knightdale or Clayton? Knightdale sounds like a great place and I definitely am looking in that area. Thanks for any info you can give!

Hi! i am sorry, I don't know about rentals- if you mean homes. DM me if you'd like realtor rec to help you with a rental. Apartments run around $920ish for a 2 bedroom. or they did in Feb when I helped a family member find one. Hope this helps!

Thank you RaleighLass! We do have a realtor we are working with (just not ready to buy yet so I hate to bother him with too many questions). We are planning to buy a house in Garner, Knightdale or Clayton and then rent it out for a couple of years until we retire. I was wondering if homes rent out quickly in those areas.
