We just returned from visiting the Raleigh area. I really like Cary, we didn't get to see a whole lot of neighborhoods but we did see Lochmere and I really liked it it had a great feel to it. I didn't know what the difference was between it and Lochmere Highlands, do you prefere one over the other and is this a neighborhood you would recommend for a family or are there others more family oriented?

Isn't Lochmere Highlands the one off of Holly Springs Rd? If so, it has larger lots and more 'upscale' homes, doesn't it? It is a beautiful neighborhood, my favorite Lochmere one.

I've lived in Lochmere Highlands for 8 years, and here's my humble opinion: Lochmere was built first, followed by Lochmere Highlands. The houses in Lochmere are older and more pricey, for essentially the same square footage, especially if its near one of the lakes. Also, Lochmere has cluster homes and condos, while Lochmere Highlands has none. The homes in the Highlands were build in the early 90's on more hilly land. Hemlock Bluffs State Park is across the street from Lochmere Highlands, and you can walk to it easily. The topography in the Highlands is a continuation of the Bluffs, and it won't flood when Swift Creek overflows. The hiking trails there are beautiful (its like being in the mountains, which I love, since I'm from the Shenandoah Valley), and the park-run programs for children are wonderful. My little ones have enjoyed it greatly. Also, the neighborhood pool in the Highlands is MUCH less crowded than in Lochmere, and better maintained, I think. I have nothing against Lochmere, but I'm glad I chose to buy in the Highlands instead.

When we moved here two years ago, we really liked the whole area of Lochmere. The houses were nice, the land beautiful with mature trees, etc., and the location was a good one. There was little available, however, and what came up, went quickly.

I haven't seen much change in that regards. I think you'd do well investing in a home or condo there. I have since met folks who have had to rent homes in Lochmere as the owners' intentions were to hang onto the property -- evidently, they liked it that much, too. I missed out on renting a beautiful home right on the lake, dock and all.
