The cost of living in the South has its pros and cons, and Raleigh, NC is a perfect example. Being a city home to a major university, housing costs are on the expensive side for a one room apartment. However, since most people have a personal means of transportation, one can live just outside the city and have a much lower housing cost and still enjoy all the perks the city has to offer. Job salaries are well above average, and the utility costs due to climate are about average.
- These days people want the amenities that are associated with city living but still want to experience and maintain the small town feel.
- Raleigh is a university town and that has made the cost of housing somewhat expensive, even more expensive than the national median.
- The people in Raleigh earn more than other people elsewhere and the economy of the town is robust and predictions forecast that more growth is expected.
“All this, access to top-notch universities, and an agreeable climate have made Raleigh, North Carolina, an increasingly popular place to move!”
