What kind of house can you buy for $800K in North Hills?
All these amenities make for high demand, which keeps North Hills at critically low inventory. Even with home inventory on the rise, you’ll have to hit that refresh button to catch new properties before they’re gone—or work with a truly expert real estate agent with access to off-market listings.
If you can nab a home in North Hills, you’re looking mostly at older homes built in the 1970s or previous. They have lots of character, and at this price point, they’ve usually been renovated and updated for a beautiful, contemporary interior. Spacewise, you can expect around 2400 square feet, three to four bedrooms, and two-and-a-half bathrooms on a ⅓ to ½ acre lot.

Living in Apex
Previously ranked the #1 Best Place to Live by Time’s Money Magazine, Apex provides many of the amenities you’ll find in Raleigh proper without the city feel. The Halle Cultural Arts Center provides space to enjoy visual and performance art and offers classes to the public, while nearby restaurants and music venues provide entertainment and places to gather with family and friends.
Additionally, Apex offers great access to the outdoors through numerous parks and hiking trails. Though Apex isn’t as bustling as North Hills, many will enjoy the strong community and close-knit feel of the small city.
What kind of house can you buy for $800K in Apex?
Buyers in Apex will have an easier time finding a house at the $800K price point than those in North Hills. The small city has a higher inventory—and also offers more space for the budget. You can expect around 3000 square feet with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and upgraded, modern finishes. New construction in Apex is common at this price, and if the home isn’t brand new, you can expect that it was built in the last decade.
