Anyone else who is buying or looking to buy having trouble finding a home that isn't near air traffic flight patterns, train tracks or a highway or possible future 540? I am beginning to get really discouraged. Can somone please list neighborhoods that are NOT near any of these factors? Or is this something you just have to live with in the Raleigh area?

Word of advice, there may be areas where there are no main roads, etc NOW, but do to growth, it may occur in the future...A month or so back I had read an article about residents in Union County were fighting as they wanted to put a road down near a residential area and I think (could be wrong) they wanted to take some homes.

Here where I am on LI, they wanted to widen the road due to traffic, now these people already live on a main road but they took parts of people's front yards, the people were paid, but lost some of their land..

Look at the developments in N Raliegh off of Falls of Neuse Rd (Bedford, Oakcroft, Falls River, River Run, etc). We never hear flights, and we are far enough from 540 not to hear that either.

Hi

We are in wake forest, off of purnell road (covington ridge) and we rarely hear planes (maybe a couple a week and they are high above us, not like in preston in cary). most of the neighborhoods in wake forest will be like that.
