North Carolina is one of the Best States to Retire for Finances

North Carolina is one of the Best States to Retire for Finances

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighWe all want to make the most of our money, especially once we retire. Finances pay a big part in deciding where to spend your golden years; fortunately, North Carolina is one of the most tax friendly states for retirees – perfect for enjoying the finer things in life.

North Carolina Retirement Taxes

There’s a few reasons why North Carolina makes the cut as one of the best states to retire to for taxes. Due to a tax reform back in 2013, the Tar Heel state now charges income tax at a flat rate of just 5.75% as well as a tax exemption on all Social Security retirement benefits. There’s no wonder these retiree friendly taxes add that extra appeal for those looking to relocate during retirement.

Competitive Cost of Living

As well as North Carolina providing great taxes for retirees, you’ll also find a low cost of living in the state. The lower price of food, utilities, transport and housing here compared to other states means you’ll have more freedom to spend money on the things you love. If you’re in need of healthcare, you’ll be happy to know that prescription drugs are fully exempt from tax in North Carolina as well. The low cost of living retirees can enjoy here has even lead to the city of Durham being featured in MSN Money’s list of top ten places to retire.

Adventure On Your Doorstep

North Carolina has an abundance of spectacular scenery to discover. With national parks, waterfalls and mountains at every turn, you won’t need to travel far or spend much to explore this beautiful state. The state’s well-maintained highways provide easy access to North Carolina’s stunning beaches and quaint coastal towns, as well as the breath-taking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains – perfect locations for money saving days out!

Keep Active For Less

Living on a retirement income doesn’t mean you have to revert to a slower pace of life. Get out and explore all that this state has to offer. Having all this available on your doorstep is a great way to keep active without breaking the bank.

Combine a low cost of living, retiree friendly taxes and an abundance of free and budget friendly locations and activities and it’s easy to see why North Carolin of one of the best states to retire in, both financially and lifestyle wise.

Downsizing Could be a Good Move in Retirement

Downsizing Could be a Good Move in Retirement

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, July 04, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighIf there's one aspect of retirement that's universally daunting, it's the notion of running out of money. But unfortunately, it's a very real risk for the countless Americans who enter retirement financially unprepared year after year.

If you're approaching retirement with inadequate savings, there are several ways you can compensate to avoid depleting your nest egg prematurely. You might, for example, decide to work part-time as a senior to generate income, thereby leaving more of your nest egg intact. But here's another option you might consider: downsizing. An estimated 42% of Americans plan to downsize in retirement, according to data from TD Ameritrade, and it's a move that could end up spelling the difference between struggling financially and having enough cash to cover the bills for the rest of your life.

Why downsize in retirement?

Even if you own your home outright by the time you retire, downsizing to a smaller space can still save you a bundle. Remember, other than healthcare, housing will likely be your single greatest monthly expense as a senior, so reducing it as much as possible could work wonders for your budget.

For one thing, it costs less money to heat and cool a smaller space than a larger one. If you're used to spending $250 a month on utilizes for a 2,000-square-foot home, downsizing won't necessarily cut that bill in half -- but you might reduce it by a third, which will help.

Furthermore, it stands to reason that maintaining a smaller space is easier and more cost-effective than maintaining a larger one. The typical homeowner spends 1% to 4% of his or her property's value on upkeep per year, but if you downsize, you'll see maintenance costs shrink or disappear as a result.

Another thing to keep in mind is property taxes. Property taxes are a function of your home's value times your local tax rate, so if you sell you home, you'll no longer pay these taxes. And since property taxes are no longer fully deductible (they're part of the SALT deduction, which was once unlimited but is now capped at $10,000), lowering that bill makes sense on multiple levels -- particularly if you're living in a state whose property taxes are much higher than average.

Finally, remember that by the time you retire, there's a good chance your adult children will have moved out, which means you like won't need all of that space. And that's reason enough to swap your current home for a smaller one that's easier to deal with in all regards.

Raleigh: One of America’s 50 Best Cities to Live

Raleigh: One of America’s 50 Best Cities to Live

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighAs the land of opportunity, the United States has attracted people from around the world for centuries. Yet not all parts of the country are equally desirable, and some cities are far more liveable than others.

On an individual level, subjective measures often override other, more objective, considerations. Sometimes, we live in a place simply because it is where we grew up — it is familiar and where we feel at ease. Still, a range of factors can help compare U.S. cities objectively. Low crime, a healthy economy, and affordability are just a few examples of universally desirable attributes in any community.

24/7 Wall St. created an index of over three dozen socioeconomic measures to identify the 50 best American cities to live in. The most liveable cities span the country — from the Deep South to New England and from the Mid-Atlantic to the Pacific Northwest.

10. Raleigh, North Carolina

  • Population: 458,862
  • Median home value: $242,500
  • Poverty rate: 12.1% (bottom 25%)
  • Pct. with at least a bachelor’s degree: 50.8% (top 10%)

Raleigh is one of many fast-growing mid-size cities in North Carolina. Over the past 10 years, the population of Raleigh increased by 29.6%, the most of any city in the state other than neighboring Cary, and far more than the 7.1% national population growth rate.

Raleigh is located in the southeastern corner of the Research Triangle, a prospering area with three leading research universities and many high-tech companies. Raleigh itself is home to North Carolina State University and is a 30-minute drive from Duke University and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. North Carolina has one of the largest brain gains — more college graduates are staying in the state than leaving — in the country. This has contributed to high educational attainment in cities across the state. In Raleigh, 50.8% of adults have at least a bachelor’s degree, far more than the 31.3% national share.

In North Carolina it is Cheaper to Rent a Home than to Own

In North Carolina it is Cheaper to Rent a Home than to Own

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighOwning a home is often considered the American dream — and it's an expensive one. Homeowners in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., pay from 33% to 93% more for housing each month than do renters living in the same state.

But many homeowners reap benefits that you can't get from renting, such as financial security and stability, tax deductions, and a vehicle for retirement savings. 

While renting can't offer those long-term financial benefits, the study found that it's cheaper to rent on a month-to-month basis. If you're wondering how to save money for a down payment, renting can help you build that nest egg. However, in extremely expensive or competitive markets renting might be better for the long haul.

To determine the monthly homeownership premium — the additional cost of owning instead of renting, expressed as a percentage — NerdWallet compared 2015 American Community Survey data from the U.S. Census Bureau for the median gross rent and median homeownership cost in each state and Washington, D.C. Median gross rent includes the costs of monthly rent and utilities for all kinds of rental properties, and median homeownership cost includes monthly mortgage payments, real estate taxes, insurance and utilities.

This comparison doesn't include the down payment required to buy a home, which is traditionally 20% of the home price for conventional mortgages.

Key takeaways

Owning is more expensive everywhere. Across all 50 states and Washington, D.C., it costs more each month to own a home than to rent. The median cost people pay nationwide to own a home is 54% more than the median cost of monthly rent.

In some states, the cost of owning far eclipses renting.

In North Carolina it costs 49% more to own vs. rent each month!

Renters Create More Wealth than Buyers

Renters Create More Wealth than Buyers

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 06, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighWith housing markets around the U.S. nearing the peak in their cycles, renters who reinvest their money have an increasingly better chance at creating wealth than individuals who purchase a home, according to the latest national index.

"On the heels of information concerning slowing housing starts, rising mortgage rates, decreased demand and unsustainable price increases, these numbers provide additional evidence that housing markets around the country are slowing, resulting in many to opt for renting," said Ken Johnson, Ph.D., a real estate economist and one of the index's creators in FAU's College of Business.

Of the 23 separate metro areas, many are nearing the top of their current housing cycle, meaning they are above their long-term pricing trend.

The biggest contributor to the rising cost of ownership is rising house prices.

The current scores driving the markets in the direction of renting and reinvesting appear to be the results of higher mortgage rates, increase in returns, on average, in the stock market, and the cost of ownership, which includes your mortgage payment, taxes, insurance, maintenance, etc.

All of these costs are rising faster than the cost of renting a comparable property. Therefore, renters who take the money they're saving each month and reinvest it are going to build wealth faster than those who buy a home, on average.

Raleigh, NC is One of the Best State Capitals to Live In 2018

Raleigh, NC is One of the Best State Capitals to Live In 2018

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighState capitals aren’t just for lawmaking. Often, they’re thriving cities with a lot of economic and cultural value. In fact, they can be some of the best places to live in America. But not all state capitals are created equal. And though 17 of them are the largest cities in their states, the biggest population doesn’t always represent the best quality of life. Some have rampant poverty problems.

In order to determine which state capitals make the best place to live, WalletHub compared all 50 across 51 key indicators of affordability, economic strength, quality of education and health, and overall living standards. Our data set ranges from cost of living to K–12 school-system quality to number of attractions.

#6. Raleigh, NC Best State Capital to live in

Among some of the key indicators, Raleigh ranked:
#5. for Highest Median Income
#3. for Highest % of Adults with Bachelor's Degree or Higher

Methodology

In order to identify the best state capitals to live in, WalletHub compared all 50 across four key dimensions: 1) Affordability, 2) Economic Well-Being, 3) Quality of Education & Health and 4) Quality of Life.

We evaluated those dimensions using compiled 51 relevant metrics. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the most livable state capital.

We then determined each state capital’s weighted average across all metrics to calculate its “State Capital Index” and used the resulting indexes to rank-order our sample.

Personalize Your Apartment in Raleigh, NC

Personalize Your Apartment in Raleigh, NC

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighHave you recently moved into an apartment in Raleigh, NC?  Now it's time to personalize your space. Here's a tip: Be willing to break a few rules.

Reimagine Rooms

This situation is no different than homeowners who buy a new-to-them home with slightly quirky features, and let’s be real, what homes don’t have slightly quirky features? Renters should forget about how a room is supposed to be used, and make it work for their own tastes. For example, cord-cutters don’t need to feel constrained by a cable jack, and a dining area could be better used as a space for a desk.

Right-Size Your Decor

Just because you live in small square footage, don’t think it requires small furniture. That is absolutely the wrong idea. Yes, your furniture should be appropriately scaled for the space. But too many small furniture pieces will make your home look smaller than fewer, more thoughtfully chosen pieces.

Do Double Duty

What about using a folded-down, gate-leg table as a console, either tucked behind a sofa or perhaps in an entry? When you host a large dinner party, it easily becomes a second dining table. Pieces that hide—nesting tables in the living room or ottomans under an open console table—have the benefit of being useful in a flash, without taking up extra space.

Float Away

Pushing everything against the wall is likely not the best use of space. Pull furniture toward the middle of the room, away from the walls. You can float your sofa, which made the living area feel substantially larger.
