There are many areas in the city that have a rural feeling. Raleigh also allows for chicken coops if you want to get real country. I see rural spots sprinkled throughout the city often in areas you might not expect. For value however, you can be communtable to Raleigh, but get a lot more house for your dollar if you are willing to drive a bit in any direction! Great rural homes can be found in Wake Forest, Youngsville, Pittsboro, Willowsprings, Apex, and the list goes on!!! Once you get pre-approved, I can connect you with the top agents for each area you are considering.
