Single empty nester living in nice neighborhood in Holly Springs (Sunset Ridge) wants to downsize to small house with yard in nice neighborhood....any suggestions? Arbor Creek has some small homes with yards, any feedback on that neighborhood or any others that offer smaller homes. Don't think I can go to a townhome, need a small yard, have a dog and like to garden, don't want to be right on top of my neighbors, just don't need the big house. Thanks!

Downsizing...never as easy as it sounds!

If you don't want a 55 Active Adult Community and you just want a smaller home, you then find yourself in started neighborhoods. Not a bad thing in some cases.

Some of the larger neighborhood, like Heritage in Wake Forest has a few sections that are not 55 and older but have smaller homes with master down. You also have ranch plans. Lots are smaller. More upgrades so you are paying more dollar per sq. foot and so you have less starter homes and renters.
