Apex, North Carolina – Homes for Sale


About Apex

The town of Apex, NC is known as the “Peak City” and has adopted the motto “The Peak of Good Living”. Incorporated in 1873,  it is so named for its location as the highest point on a portion of the Chatham Railroad. Apex is highly acclaimed with a charming downtown, top-notch schools, and community spirit. The town’s proximity to Research Triangle Park has encouraged residential development, yet the town has managed to preserve its small-town character. Apex has 60 commercial buildings and homes dating from 1870 to 1940 plus a district on the National Register of Historic Places.   The Apex Chamber of Commerce building was formerly the circa-1914 Union Depot; originally a passenger station for the Seaboard Air Line Railroad. Downtown  features antique and specialty gift shops, as well as many great restaurants. You’ll feel the warmth and Southern charm of the community especially at holiday events that  include the Olde Fashioned 4th of July, Trick or Treat  and Christmas on Salem Street.

In August 2015, Apex was rated #1 in Money Magazine’s Best Places to Live
