If you’re interested in new construction homes in Cary, NC, you’re not alone! Like much of North Carolina, Cary is a fast-growing area - its population in 2010 was around 135,000, a jump of 43% from 2000. Today, the number of residents is right at 166,000. Why all the interest in Cary?
Several reasons affecting the growth in Cary are also true of much of the Triangle area - good jobs, good weather, good schools, relatively low crime rates. But Cary’s boundaries also stretch from downtown Raleigh-adjacent to I-540 in the west, so it cuts a wide swath through Wake County! With parts of Cary offering very easy access to both downtown and RTP, it’s no wonder that it’s a popular real estate choice for single family home buyers.
[Note: Some of the Wake County public schools in Cary are ‘capped,’ meaning that moving into a specific community is no guarantee that your children can attend the neighborhood school, so check that before you commit!]
This growth has not gone unnoticed by new home builders and new construction is booming in Cary, with some of the Triangle’s best-known custom home builders pulling out all the stops to meet the real estate demand.
