I am so happy I found this forum!! I didn't know there were so many people moving to NC. I arrived here 2 weeks ago with my 2 kids and we are so excited. We moved from Orlando (over crowded and too expensive) and are currently living in a beautiful new apt complex in Wake Forest. I came without a job and found one the first week here and started last week... amazing to get exactly what I wanted so quickly!!! I am looking at some of the new neighborhoods around here, my work is in North Raleigh, and there is so much to choose from!!! Wake Forest seems to be a little on the high side where just a few miles up the road there are new homes for about 20K less. Does anyone know of which builders to avoid??

I can't say that any of the builders are to be "avoided". The tract builders seem to be about the same in most parts of the country. I'm referring to Pulte and KB Homes and Beazer, etc.

We do have a lot of custom builders but its going to depend on which neighborhood you'd like to live in.

So much to choose from but thats a good thing...right?

Hi

We live in wake forest, and it is definitely in a boom. 8 years ago, there wasn't much around here, now it is very busy. I think where you buy all depends on what you are looking for, what type of commute you want, and schools (if that matters at this point). Yes, there are production builders (pulte, kb homes, etc) and because they are production builders they can sell you a house for less (because they put them up fast, build a thousand a year, etc). Custom homes are going to cost more but you get more standard features in the home. You can send me an email privately (leigh@) and let me know your price range and I could narrow it down for you a little more! There are some nice neighborhoods near the Triangle Town Center Mall as well.
