With the Triangle area seeing consistent growth year after year due to a thriving job market, unmatched cost of living, and overall quality of life, Raleigh and its surrounding suburbs have become one of the most popular and sensible spots nationwide for relocation. A recent study conducted by the respected real estate brokerage and blog, Movoto, looked at all of the towns across this area, ranking the Town of Cary first on their 2015 list of the “Best Raleigh Suburbs to Live In.”
Several factors leading to Cary being named number one on the Movoto list of “Best Raleigh Suburbs to Live In” were thoroughly explained in the article at their website by Staff Writer, Natalie Grigson. One major area that was cited for Cary’s number one listing in the “Best Raleigh Suburbs to Live In” was the town’s median household income of $90,000 that was nearly double the N.C. state average of $45,150.
Overall median home value was another area looked at in the process, with Cary’s currently being an impressive $303,700. Unemployment rates of each of the 12 suburban Raleigh towns studied also played into the final rankings, with Cary boasting a rate of 5.3 percent, which stands a full two points lower than the given median average for the entire United States. A low crime rate for the size of the town and an average daily commute time of just 22 minutes, which sits well below the average of nearly all town’s polled also weighed heavily in the final tally that saw Cary placed on top of the list of the “Best Raleigh Suburbs to Live In”
Summarizing the placement of Cary at number one among the “Best Raleigh Suburbs to Live In, ” Grigson explained, “This affluent Raleigh suburb is the type of place you might find on the cover of a magazine or on the front of a postcard. The streets are not just safe, but beautiful—lined with trees, expansive yards, large single-family homes of all styles.”
“If you’re looking to move to the suburbs to raise your family, you won’t find a better place than Cary,” continued Grigson in her praise of the town. “Nearly a quarter of its population are made up of school-age children, and down the line, it’s just about 20 minutes from universities like Duke, North Carolina State, and UNC.”
