Mail image previewThe Town of Cary is a community of more than 155,000 residents. Located between Raleigh and Research Triangle Park, the town is conveniently located, with Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and the Raleigh Durham airport all nearby. Duke University and UNC Chapel Hill are less than 20 minutes away.

Cary is the seventh-largest municipality in North Carolina, yet it is able to maintain a small-town feel due to the resources available from larger cities nearby. Many of the residents work in Raleigh and Research Triangle Park. Most of the residents have white-collar jobs as professionals and technology and office workers. The median income of the residents is among the highest in the state.

The town has 31 park areas, with benches and picnic tables. Many of the parks have ball fields and other athletic facilities. The Fred G. Bond Metro Park, for example, has seven baseball diamonds, a boat house, a ropes course, an amphitheater, a community center, and a senior center. It also serves as the hub of over 70 miles of greenway hiking/biking trails throughout the town. Other athletic venues include a skate park, the Cary Tennis Park, WakeMed Soccer Park, and the USA Baseball Training complex.

The town also has many cultural activities. It is the summer home of the North Carolina Symphony, which provides a series of concerts during the summer. There are also live music concerts, festivals, and moonlight movies.

 Cary prides itseCommunity Wall in Carrboro NClf on safety. It is continually ranked in the top 20 safest  cities  in the country, and the safest in the Southeast. It also is proud of  its  reputation as a bicycle-friendly community.

 With so much to offer, Cary is a popular place to live for people of all  ages. It  has experienced rapid growth over the last ten years. As a  result, home  prices in the area often command a premium. The average  home price is just  over $400,000, with an average price-per-square-  foot of $150. Many of the  homes are on tree-lined streets in older  neighborhoods. Single-family homes  can be found at around $150,000  for fixer-uppers to over $2,000,000 for larger estates.

While Cary has so much to offer, if you want to get away for a few days, the Atlantic Ocean and its beaches are just over two hours away by car; the mountains and ski resorts are less than three hours away!

If you are considering buying or selling a home, give us a call. My partner Andrew Palumbo and I both have extensive real estate and construction experience.
