Go ahead and give serious thought to not only North Carolina, but the area of Wake Forest. For many families just like yours, looking into new homes in Wake Forest is ideal. Here are just a few reason why it is so beloved by residents:

#1 It is a quick drive to major cities. Wake Forest is a neighboring town to Raleigh. Some parts of Wake Forest can be less than five minutes to Raleigh. Downtown Raleigh is likely going to be about a 20 to 35 minute drive. Your new house will also be close to Durham. Anyone who is commuting to work in Durham, or who wants to check out a Durham Bulls baseball game, see a show at the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC), or eat at one of the best restaurants in North Carolina will find it’s about a 45 minute drive.

#2 You don’t need to leave, though! While Wake Forest is a short trip from major cities like Raleigh, you don’t actually need to leave to enjoy yourself. There’s a lot to do right here in town! There’s tons of restaurants, bakeries, and breweries. The downtown Wake Forest area has quaint shops, parks, and so much more. If you live in Holding Village, you can have a pool day or spend hours at the playground without even leaving your neighborhood!

#3 We enjoy beautiful weather. One of the reasons North Carolina is so well regarded is that our weather is great year round. We get a bit of snow, about two inches a year on average. We also have plenty of sunny days, perfect for being outside. Our autumn months are gorgeous and spring is beautiful and fresh as well. 

#4 It’s very safe here. Just because you’re near big cities doesn’t mean this is “big city life” and all of the dangers that come with it. Your family needs to live and thrive in a place where you feel safe. A new study found that Wake Forest residents are in one of the safest areas in the state. 

There are many options for fantastic homes for sale in Wake Forest right now. Do you have your eye on one? Perhaps it is not one house in particular you have in mind, but a community. Could this finally be the time to buy in Holding Village? For many people, the answer is yes!
