Top Spots to Build a Home Around Raleigh, NC

Raleigh, NC ranks nationally as one of the top places to live thanks to our thriving tech scene, charming neighborhoods, and wealth of beautiful natural spaces. No wonder it’s a top choice for potential homebuyers looking to build their custom dream home! But with so many vibrant communities surrounding Raleigh, where do you begin? To help you understand the area, our Kyle Bobbitt team has compiled a list of some of the best areas to consider, each offering a unique flavor.

For the Urban Explorer:

  • Downtown Raleigh: Immerse yourself in the heart of the action. Downtown Raleigh offers a vibrant mix of cultural attractions, trendy restaurants, captivating outdoor spaces and an exciting nightlife. Building a custom home here allows you to walk or bike to everything you need. Keep in mind lot availability and pricing might be higher compared to other areas in the Triangle region.
  • Midtown: Raleigh’s Midtown is less busy than downtown proper, but offers all the bustle of thriving shopping and dining areas, clever entertainment and outdoor venues, access to the Capital cities extensive greenway system, and a wealth of neighborhoods, old and new, 

For the Family-Oriented:

  • North Raleigh: The next band of communities as you head north from Midtown is North Raleigh, where you’ll find a mix of established neighborhoods, new homes, and some great push-in opportunities to give you the convenience of living near the center of Raleigh, with the wooded suburban feel and lot sizes you’d desire for a family.
  • Cary: This consistently top-ranked suburb boasts excellent schools, a strong sense of community, and a plethora of family-friendly activities. Cary offers home options for every taste and budget.
  • Morrisville: Another family favorite, Morrisville offers a blend of suburban charm and convenient access to major highways. With parks, green spaces, and top-rated schools, it’s a haven for raising a family, with easy access to Raleigh’s international airport, RDU.

For the Nature Enthusiast:

  • Apex: Nestled near Jordan Lake, Apex offers stunning natural beauty with ample opportunities for hiking, fishing, and boating. Apex , home of `The peak of good living’, maintains a small-town feel with a strong sense of community, and great opportunities to commune with nature.
  • Wake Forest: Steeped in history and brimming with Southern charm, Wake Forest boasts a walkable downtown area, beautiful parks, and easy access to Falls Lake State Recreation Area. It’s a perfect spot if you’re looking for a nature escape without sacrificing convenience.

For the Budget-Conscious:

Fuquay-Varina: This charming town offers a slower pace of life and a tight-knit community feel. With a lower cost of living compared to some closer-in suburbs, Fuquay-Varina might be the ideal spot for those looking to stretch their home-building budget further [1].
