Ranking the Triangle neighborhoods with highest same-home resale value

In Franklin County’s Lake Royale subdivision, prospective homebuyers can find larger lakefront properties for sale behind the community’s private gates. In Raleigh, at the Harrington Grove neighborhood, home hunters can tour residencies that are just minutes from Research Triangle Park but also a short drive from the city’s restaurants and night life.

Both areas are near the top of the list of Triangle subdivisions that have seen the highest appreciation of resale homes through the first nine months of 2017.

There’s one caveat, however. The analysis looks at houses that were first sold between 2013 and 2016 — and then resold this year through September. The apples-to-apples comparison presents a picture of the market value of the same house over a period of four-plus years.

Residential home sales observers note that examining appreciation for resales of the same homes in specific subdivisions provides a closer and more exact look at how the residential market is changing in some areas. The list is filled with subdivisions near and far, both luxury and starter homes, and paints a picture of the different attributes homebuyers are looking for in the Triangle, especially those who may be new to the area.
