You’re looking for a new home in the Wake Forest area. The market is really hot right now, and it’s easy to feel like houses are going faster than you can even consider them. That is why we recommend going over a checklist now, before you see a house you like. That way, you can make a quicker decision and hopefully get your bid in before someone else.
For those looking for a new place to live, it can be difficult to find the right place to call home. After all, home is where the heart is! We want you to love your new home, not just on day one but also on day 101 or even 1,001! That is why it’s best to consider all of these important factors:
#1 Your budget
This isn’t the most fun aspect of home shopping, but it is the most important. If you can’t afford a house, it won’t feel perfect for long no matter how great it is. It’s important to live comfortably and within your means. Affordability means more than just how much you spend on housing costs. For instance, if the new home is further from work, factor in the cost of extra gas and more frequent oil changes.
#2 Your commute
Speaking of commuting to work, how is this new home going to affect it? The length of time it takes for you to get to the office can have a huge impact on your mental health. Wake Forest is a popular area for those who commute into Raleigh, Cary, Durham, and Chapel Hill. You can get from Wake Forest to downtown Raleigh in just half an hour. No wonder it’s such a popular place to live! That being said, some homes will certainly be a more convenient commute than others.
#3 Access to schools, healthcare, parks, and other nearby places
Your new home is going to be the place where you set up your life! A good education is essential for setting your children up for a bright future. Holding Village residents are in the Wake Forest school district and attend great neighborhood schools. There is a Wake Forest elementary school, middle school, and high school- all of which are great. There’s several urgent care facilities as well as UNC Family Medicine at Wakefield nearby too. Want to get out and about in town? The shopping, dining, and parks in Wake Forest are fabulous!
#4 Amenities within the neighborhood
Today’s best homes come with a lot more than just four walls and a quarter-acre yard. We’re talking, of course, about the neighborhood amenities! You won’t ever want to leave your new neighborhood if you choose wisely. Holding Village has plenty of green space, plus Holding Lake, a pool, trails, parks, and more.
#5 New build or house for sale
Perhaps you don’t want to buy a house at all, but instead build one. This is an option that is certainly worth looking into, as it offers some great benefits. Holding Village has some very exciting additions coming in 2022, including new builders!
