Just Because You Live in Wake Forest NC Does NOT Mean You Live in Wake County

Real Estate Broker/Owner with RED Properties NC #129285

When you are searching for homes for sale in Wake Forest NCWake Forest NC you can't just assume that you will be living in Wake County!  There is a small area of Wake Forest NC that I like to consider the Bermuda Triangle of Wake Forest.  ;)  A Wake Forest address can mean that you live in:

  • Wake County
  • Franklin County
  • Granville County

Why should you care?  There are a few differences from county to county:

  • SCHOOLS!  If you live in Franklin County or Granville County your children do not go to Wake County Schools.  I know for the majority of people that I speak to that search for homes for sale in Wake Forest are specifically looking for Wake County Schools.  
  • TAXES - taxes are completely different for each county.
  • Public Services such as water/sewer and even cable choices can and do differ.

If you are thinking about purchasing a home in Wake Forest NC I would be happy to help you choose the RIGHT home for you!  Many times a home will be listed for sale on a website and you won't notice the county it is located in .  This is one of the things that makes it difficult for home buyers in this area seek out the Wake Forest Homes they are looking for that are located within Wake County.  Don't chance it - call me or email me and I can take the guess work out of your home search!

Don't forget to take a peek at my website, Wake Forest NC House Chick, and there is a specific tab for Wake County Public Schools as well as a tab for Wake Forest NC Neighborhoods.  By no means is this a complete list of neighborhoods but it is a great place to start your search for Wake Forest NC Homes for Sale

Leesa, that's one of those things someone coming from out of state wouldn't necessarily know and that's why they should establish a relationship with a realtor who has detailed knowledge of the area...some one like Leesa L. Finley North Carolina Realtor of Wake Forest NC & Raleigh NC.

Leesa, schools and taxes are two very important factors for buyers I work with. Understanding the impact of these factors on real estate is necessary.

Thanks for stopping by Cal!  It can be difficult in this area if schools are important - even though it is a Wake Forest NC address......it may be the wrong schools for some buyers.
