Apex, NC Real Estate

In the past several years, Apex, NC has been recognized by CNN Money.com as one of the Top 100 Best small Towns in America (we ranked number 44 out of 100).  The crossroads of 55 & 64 in Apex is exploding with quality shopping and will eventually meet the new 540 bypass. Many say that when this takes place, that side of Apex will be one of the most convenient places in the Triangle!  Apex is also ranked as the 3rd Best Places to Move to in America by Forbes Magazine.

Downtown Apex is well known as the “small town” home to a number of charming shops and restaurants. For shopping of a more contemporary nature, you’ll find a wealth of retail and entertainment options at Apex’s Beaver Creek Crossing and Beaver Creek Commons shopping centers.

Walking down Salem Street in Historic Downtown Apex is like traveling back in time.  Downtown Apex is a place to stroll, to browse, to hang out for a while and relax. The flags and banners down the street reflect the seasons, and the shop owners also have plants and colorful planters that add to the charming landscape.  It’s wonderful to have sidewalks on both sides of the street, in addition to the many benches and cafe seating.

Apex offers many choices in housing, but remains very much a homes, rather than a multifamily area. Here you can choose from among historic (and historic replica) houses and farms, or town homes and apartments.
