The further you travel East on 540 in North Raleigh past Brier Creek and Leesville Rd. you will have less airplane noise. The price of new construction will be above 500k. You will be able to get a nice resale in this area.

Same as if you look West of Hwy 55 in West Cary. You will have less airplane noise. Some still. I think you will get more for your money including new construction here than in N. Raleigh.

Apex is still a possibility and will fit within your price range. The further you get past Hwy 64 the longer the commute to RTP will be. Something to consider. 540 won't be coming around to help with this any time soon unfortunately.

I don't think you really need to consider school quality solely for resale. If you purchase a home in a good school district, you'll get more when you sell, but you'll pay more now as well. Is there evidence that homes in a good school district appreciate more than homes in a worse one?

I'm in Chapel Hill, in part because of the schools but also because of proximity to my wife's work, but if I didn't have to worry about schools there's a good chance I'd be in Durham and paying much less on my mortgage.

I do see some homes in the Bedford neighborhood that look appealing to me. LIke I said, I don't care about a large yard.

Are there other neighborhoods that are like Bedford?
