West Haven in Apex, NC has 260 people per sq. mile and the median income is $57,263 (while Apex as a whole is $84,221). The median rent is $591 (while Apex as a whole is $803). There is much more statistical information that you may find of interest at the link I referenced.
I agree that it is key to visit any area that you plan to reside in to determine if it is indeed where you find comfort in that fits your wants and needs. What I find fits my needs will likely be different from your needs. I just sold a pre built (pre sell) in Fuquay and am in the area often as I watch this home be built at all stages for my first time home owner clients, if I can be of service please do not hesitate to give me a shout.
