This neighborhood is popular, especially with the market being so strong. There are 4 homes sold in 2014 and one home under contract. So, there is no inventory in this community at the moment. ... more

Inventory is low in Cary. Based on your criteria on 8/3/2014 there are 20 homes that match your need. Most of the Amberly homes are new but the lot sizes are small. I have a listing in Cary Park at 953 Vandalia that is priced to sell at $355,000. There is one at Greystone, new construction at the Providence at Town Hall Commons(Standard Pacific), 1 at Providence Place, 1 at Fryars Gate,and 1 at Evans Farm. ... more

The Cary/Morrisville area, which we refer to as Northwest Cary, does not have a lot of condo options to choose from. Cary is a very suburban area and primarily single family homes. Currently there are 6 condos on the market in Cary and they are all located on Waterford Lake Drive in Cary Park. ... more

Hi Jeanne,

I specialize in active adult communities in the Triangle. North Carolina is the #1 state for retirement in the country and there are many reasons why:

1. Great climate
2. 3 Major Universities
3. Arts
4. International Airport
5. Great shopping and dining options

So, there are several active adult communities but none offer short term leases. We are very different than most other retirement communities in that we don't offer short-term rentals and even the rentals that are available are generally 12 months.

A new community that opened last year that is very popular and very closing to the stores and restaurants is Carolina Arbors. It offers a lot of what you are looking for. Now that you are here - if you are ready to start looking for a home to buy please feel free to reach out to me.

Hi Sherry,

I have looked into purchasing a home on a J1 visa. From what I have been told by the lender the only acceptable visa would be the following types. E1, H1B, H2A, H2B, H3, L1, G series, O1. I'm not sure if you can apply for a different type of vias in order to help your situation.

Thanks Rick Mangrum

Hi MB,

It's not surprising that the Cary area is an area that you are considering for retirement. In 2007 North Carolina surpassed Florida as the Number 1 state for retirees. There are a number of considerations that potential relocatees are considering - mild climate, low property taxes, lower homeowners insurance, affordable housing, and a strong job market.

I have worked closely with several clients coming from all over the country that have sought out the Cary area because of the close proximity to arts, athletics, major univerisities, and things to do in the area. So many Active 55 communities are located in areas far outside of town which makes the commute into the city difficult.

Cary itself has two Active 55/Age restricted communities that are very popular - Carolina Preserve, a Del Webb Community and Heritage Pines. Both communities have a number of housing options. Heritage Pines is now a resale community and Caorlina Preserve now has a few resales and pre-sale homes that will be delivered in about a year. Both communities start in the low $200s.

There are other options for low maintenance homes/ranch plans that are available. It's just a matter of preference.
