Garner/Clayton Area Housing - 3/2/2011
One of the best areas in the Triangle Region of North Carolina for cost effective housing. Since the RE bust in 2008 home prices have fallen across the country. The Garner/Clayton area, while losing some value, still surpasses most of the country in maintaining value. Our homes generally come with 1/4 lot minimums and many neighborhoods start at 1/2 acre in the $150-200K price range.

I work in downtown Raleigh and it only takes me 25 minutes to get to work, museums and tons of restaurants. The weather here gives you four distinct seasons, which was what we were looking for. There are tons of places to camp and hike within a one hour drive. Large malls are within a 40 minute drive due to some traffic around those areas. The downside for living here is that there is smoking in all restaurants and I am not used to that, as I am not a smoker. This is the tabacco belt afterall. There is also a 2% tax on food, of all things. And Read More

I'm Coming Back Home to Garner - 5/8/2006
Hi. I currently live in Hollywood, Florida and truly love it; however, I've decided to return to Garner where I lived for 7 years. The grass is really not greener here. Garner's housing costs are so much more affordable and values are climbing. I'm looking forward to returning to a slower life Read More
