Hello everyone-I am a divorced female in her 40's no kids and am looking to relocate to Raleigh in March-I will be renting my first year and would like somewhere where I can mostly walk everywhere. Would you recommend the rentals in the North Mall is that an upscale safe area? would you recommend finding a place in downtown raleigh and in what specific section of downtown would be considered luxury or upscale/safe? or somewhere else you think would be better-I will be going to check it out in January and would really appreciate some recommendations to point me in the right direction THANK YOU!!

You might be interested in The Hue apartments downtown. Also check out the apartments in the Cameron Village area.

North Hills is nice but you need a big budget for the rents there.

Do you know where you'll be working? There are lots of places but having to drive across town unnecessarily can be avoided.

Look in the Glenwood South neighborhood in DT Raleigh. Try 712 Tucker and look at rentals in the myriad of condo projects as well. It's a VERY convenient place to live and is accessible to all of DT by the free RLine bus or by foot if you are a "walker" like I am. It's also very close to Cameron Village for shopping. I live in the immediate area and can make it to Cameron Village by foot in about 12 minutes. Two new apartment complexes are under construction in Glenwood South and others are in planning. Cameron Village also has a huge complex under construction but I doubt it will be ready by Spring. Good luck!

the only place you need to look is the Alexan at North Hills.

Park and market is there (Six Forks Road and I-440 on your google map) but for some reason more expensive.

Glenwood South area will be a mid 20's to early 30's crowd. This includes 712 Tucker, 222 Glenwood, West at North. Paramount is right there at GS, and a little older crowd, but you'll still be mostly surrounded by younger folks.

You could rent at the Plaza (RBC/PNC, the banks) and get the right age demographic.

Cameron Village will be much younger too. And not as nice/upscale - $1,000 for 1,000 sqft of small closets, small kitchen, 2 smaller bedrooms, 1 small bath, but the "charm" of a 50 year old building with hardwoods and walking to shopping (a google for Cameron Village should yield info you need on the shopping/living there).
