What is all the buzz? Well when you live in a great place, people keep talking about it. Whether it's a travel site recommending Raleigh as a place to visit or one of our restaurants making the Forbes list as a top place to eat IN THE WORLD. Brewery BhavanaWhen we moved here 14 years ago, there were 2 good restaurants, and one of those was in a strip mall in the suburbs. Now the Forbes list is comparing us to Moscow, Barcelona, and Bogota. 

Even the somewhat stodgy U.S. News and World Report ranks Raleig as the #7 place to live. Clearly this link was written by an outsider though because it refers to our area by the airport name "Raleigh-Durham". RDU airportOne of my favorite things about the Triangle is that each point -Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill has a unique flavor. By living in the area, we can enjoy whatever we are in the mood for. 

What does that mean for the housing market? Growth and competition. According to the U.S. Census, Wake County grew 43.5% from 2000 -2010 , making it the fastest growing city in the country for that time period. Wake County just passed the one million population mark and Raleigh is expected to double in size over the next twenty years. This massive growth has lead to new construction, rehabilitation of old neighborhoods, and people entering the real estate market as investors even if they aren't lucky enough to be moving here. If you are looking to move, invest, or want to start a "flip" project opportunity Triangle area real estate is a great option. Professional knowledge can help make the decision easier. I would love to help.
