Graham-Mebane Lake, located in Graham, is the primary water source for the cities of Graham and Mebane.
Agriculture and manufacturing serve as the bedrock of the city of Graham. Yet, Graham remains the quintessential bedroom town, in which most of its residents migrate every work week to other parts of the community. The community's landscape is set up perfectly for this mass departure at peak hours, since transportation is never a problem; in fact, this is one of the huge "draws" of living in this town. Another bonus is most of the land in Graham's legal hands is residential property, and construction in these zones seems almost unceasing. There is more than enough room and board to facilitate the most wayward "out-of-stater" in their apartment search.
Finding an Apartment
The city's housing structure is designed for just about any lifestyle. Apartment hunters are usually left spinning their heads with the wide selection of floor spaces and housing styles to claim as their home. Serviced apartments for rent in single-to-family-size models and many detached Arcadian varieties for home buyers are the main stock. Bear in mind that each area in the community carries a different swag, including local amenities, so check out the most suitable locale for you. It's recommended that you begin looking three weeks in advance.
Most of the houses in Graham are fairly young, having been built around the 1990's. Of course, there are also a number of large old Victorian models, 8% of which lie near Downtown's historic district, some as old as 73 years! Over a quarter of the city's housing is historic due to age. But these are elegant homes with exquisite detailing; the high price tag only matches the years they've been standing.
For the most part, places for rent in Graham won't break your bank account. It's more affordable to both rent and buy in this city than other regions of the state.
