Looking for homes for sale in the triangle? Then you have come to the right place.
With Research Triangle Park at its center, the Triangle initially consisted of three cities: Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. But the recent demand for homes in the Triangle is making the surrounding smaller cities explode with rapid development of neighborhoods, making Cary, Morrisville, Apex and other cities popular areas to live as well.
Raleigh, with its population of approximately 431,746, has historical homes inside the Beltway as well as newer homes in the suburban neighborhoods outside the Beltway. The architecture is typical for the south, incorporating outdoor living spaces like front porches, decks, screened porches and patios. Currently there is a trend towards urban living, with many condos and lofts being built in the downtown area that is bringing a new vibrancy to the city center.
Durham, known for its old tobacco warehouse districts, is rapidly becoming the hip place to live and one of the best places to find homes for sale in the triangle. With a population of approximately 245,475, smart planning transformed these abandoned warehouses into cool habitats for restaurants and shops, with loft residential living above. There are also shady neighborhoods built in the 1920s with adorable bungalows, reasonably priced suburban homes built in the 80s-90s, and estates in Country Club communities.
With a population of approximately 59,635, Chapel Hill is centered around UNC, and offers a small town vibe with a classic downtown that borders the campus green. But it too has felt the pulse of housing demands, and new growth in the downtown areas include residential living above commercial spaces that puts restaurants and stores within walking distance from home. There is a small historic district close to campus, and a much larger housing stock that was built in the 1970’s-90’s, with spacious lots and mature landscaping. Newer neighborhoods include Meadowmont, Southern Village, Clairmont and Winmore, which all have smaller lots and traditional architecture.
The classic concept of suburbs sprinkled around shopping areas are more likely found in the up and coming surrounding cities in Wake, Orange & Durham counties where growth is spurring new construction and development. These neighborhoods are more dependent on having a car to get around, but the appeal of newer homes, lower prices, and larger lots is making it a hot spot to find homes for sale in the triangle.
