My husband and I are looking for home in Apex either in or outside of community. Is there any area (or community) that is nicer than others? Since we lives 500 mils away now, and we are researching area before we will visit there in few month.

Surely you can identify some of the subdivisions you see online (by name but not their URLs) that look good to you, and what you're looking for, requirements, price range, and perhaps those who know all the subdivisions there can help direct you.

Apex is a small suburban town. Not much bad to say about it.

We love Apex! It's a great town with many neighborhoods. All depends on what you are looking for and what your price range is. We live off Olive Chapel Road. There are many subdivisons off there and if you take it over Rt 55 you will see homes closer to downtown. Which is quaint and has grown since we have lived here. 7 years in NC and 6 in Apex. There are some nicer than others just from the sheer esthics. I would say the only street that is so-so is Tingen Rd. The area you can tell ( though they are trying to build new over there ) is more run down. Homes are is disrepair, could be a lower income area...I would be guessing but not the same neighborhoods you would see closer to downtown or by Olive Chapel Rd.

Best thing is to drive around and get a feel for the area like we did. You can look at realtor.com and hpw.com to search homes. Anything with a 27539 area code..and says Apex...is not..lol! There is an odd stretch of land off Ten Ten Rd that is unincorporated. So Cary has claimed some with their zip as well as Apex and really you are either in Holly Springs or the Raleigh/Garner border. Area code 27502 I believe is the majority of Apex. Good luck with your search!

You'd really have to go out of your way to find a bad place in Apex. If you work with a realtor at a decent price point (NOT $$$$, just not very low end rentals) you'll have your pick of plenty of neighborhoods with all the fixin's.

Narrow down what price point you are looking at and that should make it easy for you to look at communities when you visit. Chances are what makes the difference for you will be tiny. A tree there, a pool here, a certain floor plan you like.

And when you visit in a few months, it will be like visiting the sun. So....yeah. Unless you are coming from the sun, then it will be refreshing!
