There are so many aspects to Raleigh that unless you're going to spend a good amount of time on visits down it's going to be a bit overwhelming trying to find the right house. I recommend renting before buying in a new city - I know this isn't ideal and introduces a second move and complexity but it frees your mind from making a forced decision. Once that pressure is off you can move to Raleigh get the lay of the land, if you have kids check out schools and make a positive decision.
My most recent out of town movers came from New York, we had a two whirlwind home viewing sessions over two weekends (they drove the 14 hours on Friday and headed back on Sunday.) They were exhausted but we found a house. They like it now but it was stressful for them and they're still trying to get the schools right.
Hope this helps and if I can be of any assistance please let me know.
By the way - Welcome to Raleigh!
To directly answer the question and just my opinion - There are great universities, hospitals and schools most everywhere in the Triangle Area, so you just can't go wrong with some guidance. So many nice choices, I would speak to a local buyer's agent and of course we can refer someone as well.
We welcome you to North Carolina next month and if I can help with anything, please reach out.
Please know that if I can offer any personal assistance to you, I can be contacted from my website or using the contact link under my picture.
If I don't hear from you, have a safe and positive move!!
