Area Information

Accolades Abound in the Career Hotspot of Raleigh, NC

If you’re just starting your home-finding research, you might be noticing that many of the same cities keep popping up at the top of all the Best Places lists—cities like Seattle, Boston, Denver, San Francisco, D.C., and yes, Raleigh, NC. And while Raleigh boasts all of the perks of its larger counterparts—outstanding career opportunities, amazing amenities and attractions, top-rated public education—Raleigh also offers a much more affordable cost of living than many of these major cities. It’s really no surprise that Raleigh’s list of accolades—like #1 City for Jobs (Glassdoor), #2 Best Metro Area to Work in a Small Business (NerdWallet) or #3 Best Cities for Young Professionals (Forbes)—is becoming quite extensive!
