My family and I are being relocated to the Raleigh area in March.
I have been looking at the different areas and am leaning towards the Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay area to live.

What makes one area better than the other?
Are there any problems that we should be aware of in any of them? (landfills, high crime rates, poor school zoning, railroads)

Anything else that you feel strongly about that will help us make a better informed decision would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance for your time!

Funny...the order that you have them listed is the same order that I'd put them in if you were to ask how desireable they are.

What makes one area more desirable than another? Supply and demand, low crime, higher school scores, shopping.

Yes, there are landfills and railroads but it all depends on how close you are and how noise bothers you. We also have planes in some areas.

Sometimes price dictates where you end up. Your job location will factor in, as well.

all of those areas are similar and are Suburbs. Cary is the largest of them and the most Northernized. Honnestly if I were you i would try to buy a home inside the beltline if you dont work in the RTP and you work more in the Raleigh area. If you do work in the RTP i would look into North and West Raleigh

I am considering a move to west cary because it is central and will speed-up my commute time into RTP. This area also has great schools and I can get to the Soutpoint mall fairly quickly. I do not think there are any landfills or railroads in west cary.
