Apex Homes for Sale

Apex: A Wonderful Place to Call Home

Apex is a small community nestled between Raleigh and Cary. It is an attractive city thanks to its easy commuting for those looking to explore business opportunities in the Triangle but wanting to enjoy a smaller town atmosphere to call home.
Apex enjoys low crime rates, good job prospects, and lots of recreational opportunities. Money Magazine named it No. 9 on a list of "Best Places to Live 2013," and Family Circle included it on its list of "Best Towns for Families." Here are a few reasons why you might want to start looking into Apex real estate so that you can call the city home:

Small-Town Life

Apex has a population of just over 40,000, so it has the feel of a small town. Apex is a place where you can really get to know your neighbors and your community.
Yet Apex is also close to two large and growing cities, which means that residents can easily access a wide variety of career, education and recreational opportunities.
Many residents of Apex find jobs in Raleigh, Cary and the nearby Research Triangle Park. Job growth in the city was 12.45 percent between 2010 and 2012, according to Money Magazine.
Meanwhile, median income remains high at $93, 207 -- or approximately 90 percent higher than the rest of the state.


Apex isn't the home of several universities like some of its neighbors. However, it has access to 18 institutions of higher education within 30 miles.
In addition, Apex public schools are some of the best. Test scores for reading and math are above the state average, as is the overall high-school graduation rate.

Dining and Recreation

The historic downtown is a hotspot for dining and other festivities. It is the location for the annual jazz festival and Peak City Pig Fest.
For good food, locals head to places like Daniel's Restaurant and Catering for Italian fare and Skipper's Fish Fry for great seafood.
For other recreation, residents can choose from 400 acres of park space, which includes tennis courts and baseball fields.


Homes for sale in Apex go for slightly less than in Raleigh and Cary. The median cost of homes for sale in Apex was $267,400 in the last quarter of 2014, which was up 6.2 percent over the previous year. Home prices are growing, and they are expected to continue to go up as the area attracts more and more residents.
Make a smart investment in Apex real estate. Start searching for Apex homes to take advantage of all this wonderful community has to offer. You'll love calling Apex home.
