Wake County new homes


New home communities in our Wake County, NC area continue to be developed. Here are some of the ones to have on your radar for 2022.

Home buyers have been navigating a low-inventory situation for several years, and 2022 isn’t expected to be much different. The choices, whether for resale, or built-to-order homes, just can’t keep pace with demand. There are, however, new neighborhoods on the way!

One step that’s always recommended: if you love a new development, get your name on the list sooner rather than later! Here are some of single-family home communities that will open soon, or are adding new phases in the southern Wake County area:


Trinity Creek in Holly Springs, on New Hill Road, is not far from Route 1. Though the windy road has a secluded, woodsy feel, most homebuyers will appreciate that they’ll still be just a short drive from Apex-area shopping and dining. Homes will be priced in the $600s-$700s.

One attribute that will set this neighborhood apart, in addition to attractive home designs from Fielding Homes, is that buyers won’t have to wait for their trees to grow in. The developer plans to offer wooded homesites, which will create a more-settled ambience right from your first day—as well as added privacy and natural beauty. Trinity Creek will also have the most popular amenities to round out your lifestyle:

  • pool,
  • playground,
  • dog park, and
  • plenty of green space.


The coming-soon neighborhood of Olive Ridge is among the latest to be added to the New Hill-Apex area. Like Trinity Creek, you won’t be walking to the store (at least not yet!), but the drive to shopping, dining and schools won’t take very long, either.

Homesites will be generously sized at 50-feet, with a choice of a variety of David Weekley Homes’ award-winning designs. The community plan includes meandering sidewalks that will lead residents to an impressive array of amenities, including a pool complex with splash and lap pools, shaded areas, a playground, and park. Apex Elementary and Friendship schools are expected to serve families living here, though assignment changes are always possible.


Tullamore, slightly further north in the Apex-Cary area, and not far from Hwy 64 and I-540 is a small neighborhood of just 35 single-family homes, coming soon from M/I Homes. These properties, ranging from 2200-3000 sq ft, will emphasize low-maintenance, “first-floor living.” What does that mean?

Owner’s suites and all the main living spaces are downstairs, bonus spaces for an extra bedroom or project/office room, are upstairs, simplifying life and maintenance chores.

And bonus for busy folks: lawn care is included in the HOA fees—so prepare to enjoy more options for your weekends! Expect these homes to run in the mid $400s.


In southern Fuquay-Varina, off Hwy 401, you’ll find the neighborhood of Highland Forest, a community that, while well into the development phase, still has future homesites to be listed. Its location, just a 3-minute drive from downtown shopping and dining, has helped make this an attractive destination for homeowners.

The 2-story traditional designs from Davidson Homes, priced in the $450s, have also been a draw. You won’t find a pool complex or playground, but the neighborhood does have its own dog park. There are several home designs to choose from, all with 3- and 4-bedrooms, and a variety of options including:

  • porches,
  • gourmet kitchens,
  • and even 5th


If you’re familiar with the southern Wake County area, you may be familiar with Legacy Farm, which straddles Fuquay-Varina and Raleigh, on Ten-Ten and Lake Wheeler Roads.  They’re now taking names for Phase 2’s 71 homesites (to put that in perspective, Phase 1 had 56). Homes are 3-4 bedroom, listing from the $430s.

While it doesn’t have in-community amenities, its attractive setting and prime location are among the attributes that make it popular: Legacy Farm is convenient to downtown Raleigh, close to shopping and dining off 401, and there are plenty of recreation areas are nearby. Both Yates Mill County Park and Eagle Rock Golf Club are just a 4-mile drive, with many more just a little bit further.

These aren’t the ONLY new home communities in the works, so if you’re interested in starting the process of finding the ideal match for you and your family, just give us a call—we’d love to help!
