We have 4 children and are considering a move form Long Island NY to the Apex/Cary area. We've researched the schools to the point where I feel we understand the system there. Our next concern is what can we afford? Looking in Apex for 300-350k seems like we would have to stretch our buget, especially if we want about 1/3 acre. Looking at Wake Forest it seems we could get a lot more for our money but the schools don't seem as good. Is this accurate? Another question I have concerns the rules that the subdivisions have. Would putting a boat in ones own drive-way be allowed or frowned upon? Actually any info that anyone would like to include would be helpful. Traffic, taxes, likes and dislikes, what kinds of critters roam around and what are the bugs like?. Someone who did not want us to make the move told me that the kids are not very accepting of new-comers at the HS level. Is that known to be true? I have heard so many wonderful things I can't wait for our upcoming visit!
