In news that comes as no surprise to me, my home base of Apex, North Carolina has been named the fastest-growing suburb in America by Realtor.com.
As an Apex REALTOR®, I have seen this growth first-hand. Great jobs in the Research Triangle have led young families to chose Apex for its close commute, historic downtown, fun festivals and events, and up-and-coming restaurants. I had the pleasure of speaking with Realtor.com for their story, as well as with the Triangle Business Journal and The News & Observer for their coverage.
Realtor.com compiled their 10 fastest-growing suburbs list by analyzing more than 7,000 zip codes outside of cities that were still within an hour’s rush-hour commute to the nearest urban center. Apex topped the list because of its large increases in home appreciation and listings during the past three years, as well as its population growth and share of new construction in Wake County.
