Raleigh-Cary has been named the Healthiest Housing market in 2011 by Builder Magazine.
The results of the study which is based on a number of metrics show the Carolina’s and Texas as really leading the way out of the housing slump.
The Raleigh market as in other parts of North Carolina did not go hog wild ( I like that saying) back in the boom years and so prices did not have to go far to be in line with the market.
The factors influencing the growth of the Raleigh-Cary area and the Triangle area in general, are the employment opportunities, a large college educated population, growing industries like bio-technology, computer science, certain manufacturing.
The availability of affordable housing, a wonderful climate with four seasons, access to the ocean and the mountains.
The schools in parts of the Triangle are some of the best in the country. Three major universities, Duke, NC State, and UNC at Chapel Hill are all based in the Triangle and draw a tremendous amount of students from all over the country and the world and some of them never leave, in fact their parents move here after visiting! This source of very well educated, doctors, scientists, engineers, computer programmers attract employers who are also drawn to the area for the lower cost of doing business here.
The other areas of the Carolina’s that ranked were Durham-Chapel Hill , at number 3 and Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia at number 8.
