Holly Springs, NC: A Wonderful Place to Call Home

Todays Date: August 17, 2017

Residents of Holly Springs, NC can rightfully brag about the merits of their town. In 2007, Holly Springs made the Money Magazine Best Places to Live list. Nosed between the towns of Cary, Apex and Fuquay-Varina, the town has very reasonable land prices and has been able to realize substantial, meaningful growth in recent years. These factors have made Holly Springs NC real estate a prime investment and a great living space for those businesses and new residents who appreciate the growth appeal.

One of the dreams many who flock to Holly Springs are chasing is an opportunity to own a luxurious home. The Sunset Ridge Golf Community has a reputation for upscale amenities and lavish houses. Though newcomers cannot readily take advantage of new home sites within the Sunset Ridge community, a sister community, Sunset Oakes, is only two miles away. Both neighborhoods offer close shopping, neighborhood schools, retreat style water parks and racquet and swim clubs. Golf Digest has also given the golf courses located her top ratings. The average house in the Sunset developments costs a little above $500,000, so it is no surprise that the creature comforts are unsparing.

If we are to judge Holly Springs NC real estate by these two exclusive communities, home buying may seem out of reach for most people. Certainly, there are more neighborhoods to consider in the town. The median income for residents is $81,115, and the average price of a home is $242,785.

The growth landscape of the town did a big shift in 2006 when vaccine manufacturer Novartis announced it would build a facility in Holly Springs and begin production there by 2011. This promised about 350 new jobs to the area and added a real boost to Holly Springs NC real estate. A similar event happened in the town in the late 1980s when the textile company Warp Technologies moved in. The arrival of Warp Technologies brought the tax base from $8 million to $16 million.

Growth and progress have always been good indicators in small towns. Holly Springs welcomes this growth, but wants to manage it responsibly. Town leaders have been encouraging new business development downtown, which they envision becoming the central hub for weekend and leisure life. They want enough activity to make residents want to park their cars and walk to all downtown destinations.

Despite the posh housing communities springing up in suburban Holly Springs, there is a keen interest to preserve open space and control new development. Parrish Womble Park and Bass Lake Park provide opportunities for fishing, nature trails, picnic areas and playgrounds. The Town Hall in downtown Holly Springs has only been in existence for nine years to accommodate the approximate 18,000 residents of the town.

Holly Springs NC real estate is not the only local town to receive national attention from Money Magazine. The bordering town of Apex came in at 44 on the list this year. Perhaps Apex and Holly Springs have each become a small paradise because of their closeness to a capital city (Raleigh), which hosts a ton of things to do on the weekend, and their convenient commutes to Research Triangle Park, where most Triangle residents go to work. Perhaps it is something more simple that makes these towns alluring – like their unmistakable southern hospitality and charm.
