While you won't find many, you can find some, especially if you up your amount just a tad to $100k...and are willing to live just outside the town limits...

While there are not many bad parts of wake forest, I would check out the area pretty well before you buy.

If you go slightly north of Wake Forest to Youngsville, you will find more in that price range and size.

Hope that helps some!

I would agree with the other poster..........the other thing to thing about is the tax difference. If you live within the town limits of wake forest, you will pay something around 1.1 per 100 for taxes, if you are in wake forest, but not in the town limits, the tax is .68/.69 per 100. Basically you double your taxes to live in the town limits.

I looked at a search engine with a price range of $75k - $100k in Wake Forest and got 11 hits. They were from 880 sq. ft ro 2050 sq ft. Some are outside the Town of W
ake Forest borders but still use the WF zip code. I agree with the previous posted that the tax rate is less outside the WF town limits. WF is a beautiful small town, yes its growing but the downtown is something out of the 1950's yet.

Good luck in your search!!!!
