Raleigh is Among the Best Cities in America to Live

Raleigh is Among the Best Cities in America to Live

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 15, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighDid you know that in 2017 North Carolina’s two largest cities were named among the best cities in America to live.

In an analysis of nearly 600 U.S. cities with populations of more than 65,000, finance website 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data in nine major categories: crime, demography, economy, education, environment, health, housing, infrastructure and leisure.

Raleigh was ranked No. 10 in America.

For 2017, Raleigh was listed with a population of 458,862, a median home value of $242,500, a poverty rate of 12.1 percent (putting the city in the bottom 25 percent), and the percentage of people with at least a bachelor’s degree at 50.8 percent (putting Raleigh in the top 10 percent of cities).

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 percent, the most of any city in the state other than neighboring Cary, and far more than the 7.1 percent 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 percent of adults have at least a bachelor’s degree, far more than the 31.3 percent national share.

The website used census data, the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, Bureau of Labor statistics, school test score data, Department of Education statistics, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services data and more to determine the rankings.

Raleigh, NC: One of the Best Cities For Singles In North Carolina 2018

Raleigh, NC: One of the Best Cities For Singles In North Carolina 2018

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 07, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighWe used science and data to determine which cities in North Carolina have the best set up for singles: no kids, no old people, and a lot to do. Are you trying to find love in North Carolina?

Or are you just looking to hook up?

Either way, we’ve got you covered here. At least, we’ll point you in the right direction – which is why you came here in the first place, right?

According to the Pew Research Center, the number of Americans who have remained single (not married) is growing. That means, people are dating a lot longer than they used to.

There are many reasons for that, including financial and cultural. And, we suspect smartphones and social media has a lot to do with it, too. After all, we’re all a lot more distracted these days.

If you live in North Carolina, there’s a pretty good chance there are a lot of singles in your area. The Tar Heel State ranks in the top 10 when it comes to number of people over the age of 18 who aren’t married, or in a serious relationship. That’s great news for people looking for their match.

So, where are the best cities for singles in North Carolina? We’ve got the answers here.

These are the best cities for singles in North Carolina. Try not to jump in the car with a dozen roses:

  • #3. Raleigh
  • #7. Durham
  • #8. Chapel Hill

If you live in or really close to one of these cities, and you’re single, you should probably get out more often. And stop staring at your phone. Just sayin’.

Raleigh, NC: Retirement is Affordable, Healthcare is Excellent, and Life is Good

Raleigh, NC: Retirement is Affordable, Healthcare is Excellent, and Life is Good

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 02, 2018
  • Retirement is something to think about years before you get there.
  • Choosing the best place to retire in the US means weighing affordability, quality of life, activities, and healthcare.
  • WalletHub ranked the best US cities to live in retirement.
  • Many of the top cities are in states with warm weather.

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighDeciding where to live in retirement may be one of the last major financial decisions you'll make, and picking the right spot is important.

WalletHub set out to put worried minds at ease. The site used available data for the 150 largest US cities to find the best and worst places to lay your hat. We already looked at the worst cities for retirement, so let's take a look at the opposite: the best urban areas to live in your post-working life.

How people spend time when they don't have to go to the office every day tends to be a little different. Many dream of hours full of painting and golf, but there are more practical considerations to keep in mind too.

Along with the weather and nearby museums and tennis courts, reliable, accessible healthcare and affordable housing are important benchmarks when determining where to live in retirement.

WalletHub found that the cities below offered a great quality of life, good healthcare, and plentiful activities — all at an affordable cost.

WalletHub scored each city based on affordability, activities, quality of life, and healthcare. The four categories were weighted equally, and each city was given a total score and then ranked, with the highest overall score designating the best city. WalletHub used data for only the city, not the surrounding metro area.

We've included the total score (out of a possible 100), with a higher score denoting a better place to live, as well as its ranking out of 150 cities for each of the four categories, with a lower number being better.

19. Raleigh, NC

Total score (out of 100): 53.88

Rankings (out of 150 cities):

  • Affordability: 61
  • Activities: 48
  • Quality of life: 61
  • Healthcare: 6

Some Reasons to Move to Raleigh

Some Reasons to Move to Raleigh

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 22, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighDiscover what makes the City of Oaks and its nearby communities best places to live

Raleigh, N.C.’s bustling state capital is known to residents as the "City of Oaks," you'll understand the nickname when you visit downtown. Oak trees line the streets and sidewalks, offering pleasant shady spots for window shopping, coffee drinking and patio dining. Traveling east of Raleigh, you’ll find North Carolina’s beautiful coastal regions, and traveling west, you’ll find the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. Beyond the city's natural beauty and convenient location, here are six more reasons to move to the Raleigh area.

1. Raleigh combines modern, urban living with traditional Southern flair.

Folks often move to Raleigh looking for urban living with a Southern touch. The neighborhoods surrounding downtown Raleigh make it easy for residents to bike to the local farmers market, walk to a new restaurant or bar, or visit the State Capitol Building.

2. There are lots of options for delicious food in Raleigh, from barbecue to vegan.

When it comes to good food, the Raleigh region offers many options.

3. Huge First Friday events showcase Raleigh's great galleries, studios and museums.

Remember to mark your calendars for the First Friday Gallery Walk in downtown Raleigh. On the first Friday of every month, local galleries, studios and museums keep their doors open late. Galleries display new artworks, artists talk about their latest creations, and you can find handcrafted gifts for family and friends.

4. Raleigh's neighbors, Durhan and Chapel Hill, are also great places to live and visit.

When it comes to where you live, good neighbors make a big difference. Raleigh has two neighboring cities, Durham and Chapel Hill, and they are both listed among Livability’s Top 100 Best Places to Live. In fact, Durham is even ranked among the top five best places to live.

5. Many Raleigh area's restaurants serve locally grown food.

Speaking of Durham, it's worth a drive if for nothing else but to visit Piedmont, a restaurant that's cozy and small, but big on recommendations for a true taste of North Carolina flavor. Local farm-grown ingredients are a Piedmont specialty, and its ever-changing seasonal menu means there's always something new and delicious to try.

5. Several colleges ensure opportunities for education and a college town culture.

Educational Opportunities: Many folks move to the Raleigh region for educational opportunities. North Carolina State University is the largest four-year university in the state, and it is nationally renowned for programs in engineering, biology and agriculture. Duke University is located in Durham, and it is a prestigious private research institution known for its medical school and medical center. And of course, there's the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, best known for its programs in business, government, law and public health.

Rent or Buy Arguments

Rent or Buy Arguments

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 08, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighThere are plenty of arguments favoring both sides of the rent versus buy argument. Probably the main reason to buy a home is to create personal wealth. After all, for most Americans, it's the most expensive item we'll ever acquire, and typically it increases rather than decreases in value.

What are the downsides to homeownership? Well, as we learned during the recent meltdown in the housing market, what goes up can very well come down, and with very bad effects.

Buying a house also limits a person's or family's mobility. As homeownership rises, unemployment rates tend to begin moving higher within five years, at least partly due to homeowners who are unwilling to sell up and move.

Then there are the other costs of homeownership: property taxes, homeowners insurance and maintenance, to name the most obvious. A renter does not have to pay for a new roof or a new furnace while a homeowner does. And these things aren't cheap.

But, the rent versus buy decision depends mostly on personal goals. For more information on apartments in Raleigh, NC contact Auston Grove.

Once we filed one for our air conditioner at 4 am and they were there before 9! The gym is small but actually pretty nice and never crowded. They have a lot of great cardio equipment and all you could ever want for strength! The part I like most is that they allow large dog breeds and they have a pretty awesome dog park with an agility course! It's perfect for newlywed teachers on a budget!"
