REALTOR CARY NC: A Sunday Drive in the Area


Why am I the realtor Cary NC has come to depend on? I've lived in Cary for many years now and have watched how the town has grown by leaps and bounds over the years. Especially the real estate market and the new homes for sale in Cary NC. This part of North Carolina is thriving. Partly because Cary is right smack in the middle of the Research Triangle Park, and partly because it is so close to Raleigh But, mainly because people love living here. I know I do. What's there not to like? Particularly if you love the outdoors. The town is located in a hilly area with plenty of woods, creeks and small lakes like Lake Crabtree. Maybe I'm biased because I live here, or because I work for one of the best real estate companies in Cary NC. But I honestly believe this is a great area to live and work, raise a family, and find the perfect home. The fact that Cary's a great place to live isn't the well kept secret that it used to be. In fact the city's been called the hottest town in the East and one of the best small cities in America. That's one reason why there are also a lot of people looking for Cary NC homes for rent. But, if you live here for just a short time, you will want to buy. We're also less than 30 minutes away from the major research universities of Duke, UNC - Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State. The location is perfect for when the kids grow up and head off to college. Even the pre-college schools are among the best in the state.

A Realtor Takes a Sunday Drive in Cary, Apex, Morrisville and Other Parts of The Triangle

It's a beautiful Sunday morning and my friend suggests we go out for a drive. Who am I to argue? We pull out of the driveway, drive down the block, then go east until we get to the I-40. When we hit the highway , we head north in the direction of the Research Park Triangle. In almost no time at all we're breezing past the exit to Morrisville.

Morrisville, North Carolina

Morrisville used to be a sleepy little town, but the place has really grown over the years. So have the number of homes for sale in Morrisville NC. Less than 30 years ago about 1,000 people lived in Morrisville. Today the population is closer to 25,000. If you're looking for a town with a good mix of people, this is the place to be. Morrisville is known as one of the most diverse towns in North Carolina, thanks in no small part to the technology industry in the Triangle. Companies here employ people from around the country and the entire world. The town's motto is 'The Heart Of The Triangle' - although honestly that could apply to Cary, Fuquay, and Apex as well. We haven't been through Apex for a while, so just south of the Research Park I take the I-540 exit through Clegg, and head south toward Apex. This route also takes us through one of the prime zip codes for homes for sale in Cary NC 27519. Remember I am a realtor so these things are second nature to me.

Apex, North Carolina

apexJust a couple of years ago, back in 2015, Time Magazine named Apex the #1 place to live in the U.S. As a result, people doing an online search for houses for sale Apex NC increased immensely. Just like Morrisville and Cary, the number of people coming to Apex to live, work, and play has really made the city grow over the years. In 1990 there were just under 5,000 people living in Apex. Now there are nearly 40,000 that call the town home. Despite all of the new development in Apex, the place still manages to maintain its small-town feeling. That's one reason why the town's motto is 'The Peak of Good Living.’ We go by Apex and pick up State Route 1 to head back to Cary, passing the exit south to Fuquay Varina.

Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina

While there is a lot of new home development in Fuquay Varina, the Fuquay Springs Historic District still has some of the town's oldest Victorian, Craftsman, and Colonial Revival homes that were being built in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Years ago the population was about 8,000 people. Today Fuquay Varina has grown so much that it has more than tripled in size. Back then the economy of the town was heavily driven by tobacco and agriculture. While both of those industries are still around, today it's the high technology and bioscience sectors that create a lot of the jobs in the Research Triangle where many work. Heading back onto State Route 1 into Cary, we decide to take a drive through both parts of the town before going home.

The Realtor Cary NC Depends On

realtor caryOften people relocating to the area for work decide to look for condos for sale in Cary NC before they eventually look for a house to buy.
