We are relocating within the next 6 months. Hopefully earlier than that.

My husband already has a job lined up in Raleigh, so we would need to stay in that area.

What I am looking for is a nice small town. About 20-50k people. No more than that.

I would love to have a nice downtown area along with the ability to purchase at least an acre of land.

I definately do not want to live in a subdivision, unless I could have the land with it. On the other hand, I do have 4 children so I wouldn't want to be isolated.

Top rated schools are a definate must.

I have been directed to look at Apex and Wake Forest. Any comments on those towns? Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Default moving to Wake County

My husband and I are moving to the Raleigh area next year. We've been researching the area lately, and we really like Holly Springs and Apex. We live only an hour away, so we've been able to make day trips to the area. Holly Springs is more affordable than Cary and Apex, yet it is still fairly close to Raleigh (15 miles away).

You can research the schools by going to www.wcpss.net (broken link). Check out the schools' most recent report cards. We are both teachers and we are really impressed by the Apex schools' data.

Also, check out housing at link removed. You can search by city, price range, lot size, etc.

Good luck!
