When I looked at homes in October I went to The Park at Westlake and I liked many of the homes. The lots are also very small and I did not see any basement homes. The water reclamation plant concerned me alittle. My husband is primary breadwinner and he has a virtual job so the commute is not a consideration for us. I just don't want to be in the middle of nothing.
I want a community with a pool for our son (9) and good schools. I prefer newer construction and like being somewhat close to dinning and stores.
Another thing I would be very excited about would be a home that has a waterview or open area behind it.

Thank you everyone for your input, really the school issue is my biggest concern.

Based on what you have indicated I think Cary Park is the choice for you. There is a new middle school and a couple year old elementary school across the street from Cary Park. The only shopping/restaurant in the entire area is part of Cary Park. And if you are looking for a newer house that is lease to own, I think Cary Park has the best chance of offering that. They also have a pool and clubhouse.

Your next bet is Weldon Ridge, but finding a lease to own might be more difficult because the sub-division is newer. The same would go for Amberly, and Greystone.

Wake schools like other school systems are struggling financially and I see it in my kids' home work. The print outs they receive (the fonts) are so small I struggle to read them. My daughter says its to save paper. I'm really not sure why they don't just put it all on the net so we can print it ourselves. They also are not allowed to bring home books because there aren't enough books to go around Its kind of hard to teach kids about exponents at home when I haven't used it for 20+ years. Thank God for google.
I can't say much for other neighborhoods, but I live in Cary Park and really enjoy living here. The neighbors are nice,there are trees, walking paths, and the lake that makes it a great place to live.
I have a friend that lives in Cameron Pond (near the new 540) and he has seen his property value drop 30% already without the 540 even being completed.
