Question Please help...

I am begining to look at the Cary area for a possible relocation. I've noticed that the houses are a little high in prices, so I've looked at Apex and Holly Springs. I've noticed that alot of houses are empty, is there any particular reason for this?

We do not want rural. We like close shopping and entertainment while having good schools and safety. I don't like run down houses along sides of one lane roads and I'd like a home that is under 5 years old for between $225k-$275k.

I would love some inputs on areas that meet what we are looking for. Also, my husband is an electrician, so I would like to know how commuting is in the area.

One last thing, are there alot of transplants in the area, or will we be out of place coming from up north?

Thanks for your input!!!

I'll let the realtors comment on your housing needs. But I think you will find the homes are empty because alot of folks get transferred because of a job. Thus they move before the house is sold. Seems fairly common.

In terms of transplants in the area, I think you will find the majority of your neighbors are not from NC. You will find most folks have moved there from either Northern States or the west coast. We are moving back to NC from Portland. And one of the things that I'm looking forward to is like here in Portland, most residents of the Triangle are from all over the US. It's a melting pot. But you will find some wonderful natives as well. Good luck to you.

Well, there are more and more homes now in western Raleigh in that price range. And you'll be closer to the shopping, entertainment, etc....and good schools.
