Why Move to Cary NC?

Real Estate Agent with Fonville Morisey Realty

                                                     Why Move to Cary NC?

                Why Move to Cary NC? This is the question I ask new client when I meet them for the first time.  I listen, yet I know the answers, because their answers have become familiar over the past few years I've been in real estate.  Not to mention, they are the same reasons my family came here in '95. Moving to Cary NC is a big decision, maybe I can help?


GREAT PLACE TO RAISE A FAMILYCary truly is a wonderful place to raise a family.  Strong family values are evident in the neighborhoods, schools, parks, everywhere.  Parents and kids can be seen at sporting events, school functions, and just playing in the street in the evenings.  When I take clients to view home they are often amazed by the number of kids just out playing.  Neighbors socializing and what's that... waving?!

SCHOOLS:  Why are Cary schools and surrounding area schools so good?  Because all Cary kids are gifted!  No really, credit has to be given to the parent and teachers working for the common goal of the child.  As a former Wake County teacher I can tell you first hand the parental support of the schools in this area is unprecedented. Parents give of their time, money, support, anything that is asked.  That makes the difference!    




 SMALL TOWN FEEL:  Guilty ya'll Cary's a town, not a city, and plans to stay that way.  A few years ago a petition came before the Town Council stating that now that Cary is growing we shouldAshworth Drugstore Cary NC sound bigger and call ourselves, "City of Cary".  No such doins in these parts...(my attempt at a southern draw). We may be getting bigger geographically but the City Council makes an effort to keep the feel of Cary small and friendly.  Just try to get out of any of our coffee shops or anywhere for that matter with just a quick "Hey".   When I talk to clients who have been her for awhile that is the first thing they tell me was the biggest adjustment, random people talking to them.  I tell them it's a NC thing!




WEATHER:  No long winters.  I'm originally from Ohio and I second that! Winter is not so much a season as an occaisional weather front.  Yes, we do get snow!  Just not weekly like up North. My mother hates when she calls to tell me about all their snow and I'm teeing off ready to play golf.

LOW TAXES:  New Yorkers rejoice!

REASONABLE HOUSING:  Absolutely!  Cary NC market was never part of the housing bubble. We never saw inflated prices and are not seeing huge price decreases.  CNN Money will concur.  We were one of the last housing markets to feel the housing slump and are expecting to be one of the first, OK second, behind Dallas, to see recovery. (CNN Money)

SENIOR HOUSING:  You must see Carolina Preserve Amberly Dell Webb Cary NC to truly appreciate 55+ living.  It's like Disney World for seniors.  Amazing, no detail overlooked.  I have a few more years before I qualify...

Call me for details. I've assisted several folks become homeowners already.
