Whether you are moving to the Triangle Area for the first time or are moving out of Durham to the suburbs, you have many wonderful communities to choose from. Living in the Raleigh-Durham area has so many benefits, no matter which city or town you want to call home. But if you have not yet made up your mind about moving to Durham suburbs, maybe some of these top choices can help you make up your mind.

Gorman: Best Community for Buying Your First Home

Living in Gorman helps first-time home buyers enjoy comfort, safety and low cost mortgages. In fact, this town located just northeast of the city boasts a low crime rate and a strong sense of community with the median home value of about $65,000 less than within Durham’s city limits. Those attributes make living here perfect for young professionals and others moving out of Durham to buy their first homes.

Bethesda: Quick Commute to City Center

If you work on the east side of Durham, such as in Research Triangle Park or at the airport, Bethesda provides a quick commute to these areas and the city center. This lovely community also boasts low-cost public transportation by bus for your commute, if you prefer to relax and enjoy the view instead of driving. On the bus you can expect your drive-time to clock in at less than 30 minutes. By car, you can be at the airport or RTP in only fifteen minutes. Those are reasons enough for moving out of Durham and into the suburbs where you can enjoy more real estate for your money.

Morrisville: Great Public Schools

The public school system throughout the Triangle Area offers many benefits for the region’s children. But Morrisville tops the list for quality among area public schools. If you are moving out of Durham to give your kids a better chance in their education, set your sights on this community. 

Chapel Hill: More Space with Urban Amenities

Chapel Hill is known for its leafy neighborhoods and upscale living. This community is home to only about 60,000 residents and more square feet to each person, making it a quiet and peaceful place to raise a family. At the same time, you can enjoy all of the shopping and services you find in a larger city. If you are moving out of Durham and want a quieter and more spacious lifestyle without giving up amenities, Chapel Hill makes a great choice.

Brier Creek: In the Heart of It All

If you are moving out of Durham but do not want to leave behind the benefits of city life, Brier Creek makes a great option. Located right between Durham and Raleigh, this community provides everything you need within five minutes by car. It also offers every type of living option you can think of, from homes to condos, apartments and lofts. It is the perfect place for people who want quick access to all parts of the Triangle Area for work and play.

Hillsborough: Country Life in the Suburbs

For some people, moving out of Durham offers the opportunity to get back to a country life. Hillsborough is the perfect place for this, with its wide open spaces and low population of only about 6000 people. Still, you will remain close enough to the city to meet all of your shopping, work, nightlife and social needs. Hillsborough sits at the convergence of I-40 and I-85, a 20-minute commute to Downtown Durham. Because of this close proximity, you will not miss urban amenities. But you will gain broad skies of starry nights and plenty of room to roam.
