Just southwest of downtown Raleigh, Apex has seen explosive growth.
"The good is we have certainly kept that small town feel even though it's expanded at a very fast rate," said Audra Killingsworth, Apex Council Member.
Realtor.com's data team listed the median home price in Apex as $494,900.
Drew Ludlow, a local real estate broker with Giving Tree Realty, said that the homes most in demand are four-bedroom and single-family houses with two-car garages that are priced from around $400,000 to just over $500,000.
The website noted that Apex benefits from its close proximity to Research Triangle Park, which is home to around 170 companies.
