What are the best neighborhoods in Raleigh, North Carolina?
Raleigh (Wake County) is a nice place to live but Cary is definitely a plus. Cary was on a list for one of the top places to live in the U.S. due to their low crime rate. But in my opinion and my pockets, Cary is expensive to live. Other towns to consider is Knightdale, Wendell, Garner and Apex. These towns are minutes from Raleigh, smaller yet growing. These towns are also a part of the Wake County schools. Wake County school system is one of the best schools in North Carolina. There are a few colleges in the area as well. Here's a few websites to view. http://www.wakegov.com http://www.wcpss.net http://www.townofwendell.com http://www.townofcary.org http://www.ci.garner.nc.us http://www.apexnc.org http://www.ci.knightdale.nc.us

Cary is good, especially if you're going to be working in the south, like at RTP. But if you're really looking for nice neighborhoods in RALEIGH, you won't want that commute from Cary. Without knowing the exact location of her job, I'll just tell you that North Raleigh is the best place for young families. The schools are great and property values are high and rising. It will be a good investment to get in now. If you're looking in the $200K range for a house, I'd suggest Windsor Forest or Durant Trails. They are near a landfill, which is keeping the house prices lower than they should be. The landfill will close in January of 08 and property values will shoot up as the landfill is covered over and turned into a dog park and nature area. There are great schools in walking distance including a top class private school in case you want to go that route. If you're looking in the $300K range, I'd suggest Falls River or Wakefield, or perhaps Bedford. If you contact me and give me the location of her job, I'd be happy to suggest something more personalized.

Cary is definitely your best option, but some areas of the town are very pricey. Here's what I would recommend..... A) Wake Forest-New area, young professionals, very nice homes, close to everything, great schools. B) Six Forks/Crabtree areas-Home prices are on the rise, so much to do there, younger people. C) Morrison- Boring but quiet, nice neighborhoods. Stay away from..... A)Pretty much all of Durham (Some very, very nice areas but some very, very, very, very, bad areas) B)Anywhere with a commute of more than 20 miles. Some of the freeways are very confusing and congested. Call Linda Craft with Remax for specific area recommendations. She knows everything about the area (#1 realtor and #1 team) 877-519-9996. I bought a home from her near NC State.
