The other answers are all correct. Questions you need to answer to get an answer that fits your criteria.
1. What do you call commuting, you can get most anyplace here in 30 minutes or less?
2. Where is your work?
3.What is your price range, you need to talk with a lender befor you start anything?
4. What are your housing requirements?
5. Do you want a subdivision with amenities?
6. Do you have school requirements?
7. What additional needs does your family have (hospital, walkable neighborhoods, public transportation)?
8. When can you come to take an area tour and preview?
9.Raleigh with the three major univercities located in or nearby is a metro area, but also has suburban and rural areas with easy access to all other areas. There is an area for locations that will fit every requirments

Hi Heather,

You would need to provide additional information for more specific answers. Price range, type of home
( detached/condo/townhome ) sq. footage, commute time if important, & other factors that are important to your family.
Here are some area links for you to research:

Have you visited the area? If not, I recommend that you do so you can get a feel for the different areas and what appeals to you most.

Good luck,
