More Info: The Greater Raleigh Area

Raleigh NC is centrally located, as the NC State Capitol.  Surrounded by thriving Communities on all sides, growth in the Greater Raleigh area is primarily driven by the State Government, Research done at the over 30 colleges and Universities nearby and the work done in a relative “Silicon Valley” (tax free zone) at Research Triangle Park. 

What was once a mild capitol city mostly made up of government buildings is quickly getting an exciting facelift that is continuing to gain national attention and excitement for the outstanding things to come!

Downtown Raleigh continues to be a work in progress – however, the relocation of Red Hat Headquarters, a vibrant Condominium market and the addition of many new shopping venues and restaurants makes this a “go – to” destination.  There’s also a recently built convention center, premium hotels and multi-milion dollar museums that revival the Smithsonian when it comes to seeing the best of today’s Science and Technology!  Additionally, you’ll find quality shows at our new Downtown Amphitheater and Memorial Auditorium, where you’ll find top entertainment and Broadway shows!

The town will still boast it’s historic areas like Oakwood, which is a charming community that features historic homes in high demand!

Midtown Raleigh is the “current” title for the area surrounding the new North Hills Mall.  This part of Raleigh once stood for the 1960’s established middle income family subdivisions.  With the expansion of North Hills, the addition of hundreds of Condominium units, and the great shopping found at the Mall – “Midtown” is the next “hot” area in Raleigh.

Super communities like the Bedford at Falls River in North Raleigh offer many newer housing options and incredible amenities, as well!

Premium academics on all levels just gives Raleigh even more advantages. The place to be if you’re a die-hard college sports fan!

Growth of this quality and magnitude will continue to place Raleigh as one of the top cities to relocate to in the United States! More and more we are also finding people making Raleigh the place to come to for retirement. High cost of living, bad weather and general rat race has caused many retirees to make the Raleigh area their new city of choice!

In a nutshell, the main reason people move to Raleigh are; the wonderful economy and employment opportunities, great place to start a business and raise a family, the beautiful landscape, world-class education options and overall quality of life.

Perhaps our best spokespeople are our residents. A recent survey showed an astounding 96 percent of newcomers with children said they would move to the area again if they had it to do all over… and unlike most metro areas in the US, Raleigh and the Triangle have all the amenities of big-city life without the high cost of living.
