Home Ownership Best Places In North Carolina

Home Ownership Best Places In North Carolina

North Carolina is  becoming a very popular location for "relocation".  I talk to people every day that are coming from out west, leaving the northeast, or relocating from the midwest headed to the Tarheel State.  NC added over 100,000 new residents to its nearly 10,000,000 person population between 2012 and 2013.  What is it that is bringing people to the state.  A recent report from personal finance website Nerdwallet, basically says that there is no better place in North Carolina to own a home than the Triangle.
They focused their research in 3 areas: home availability, affordability and the localized economy.
When the dust cleared, 6 of their top 10 cities in NC for best places to buy a home were in the local Wake County area....... 
1 - Holly Springs
3 -  Fuquay Varina
4 - Wake Forest
5 - Clayton
6 - Apex
8 - Morrisville

They did note that although Raleigh and Durham did not make their list, it should be taken into consideration that they play a large role in how these smaller area cities ranked since they hold the majority of the higher paying jobs in the area and create the buyer power used to purchase the homes to begin with.
Sounds like a great combination for a fantastic area to work and live.
