In Raleigh, Garner, NC You Can Live Like Royalty for Less Than 70K

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 24, 2017

Abberly Place, Garner, NCMaking a good living is one thing, living well is another. And that often boils down to where you choose to live.

The best places are likely the ones where you can find a job, earn a good salary and buy a nice home. In a 2016 report, job-hunting site Glassdoor calculated the top spots where your pay will go furthest, based on salaries and home values. To do so, the jobs site came up with a cost of living ratio — a city's median base salary divided by its median home value.

Noticeably missing are some of America's biggest cities. While you can certainly earn more in hubs like New York and San Francisco, few people can afford to buy a house or an apartment there.

We came up with the top 25 places where an average paycheck goes a very long way and the quality of life is great. (A higher ratio number is better.)

25. Raleigh, NC

Cost of living ratio: 30%
Median base salary: $62,000
Number of open jobs: 22,339

Best Places to Live in America – Raleigh, NC

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 17, 2017

Abberly Place, Garner, NCWhen deciding where to put down roots, many factors are in the eye of the beholder, such as climate, politics, or proximity to extended family. Other aspects are coveted by nearly everybody: affordable housing, access to well-paying jobs, a low cost of living, good schools, and quality healthcare. In its recently released ranking of the best places to live in America, U.S. News & World Report gathered data on these crucial components for the 100 most populous US cities.

They then categorized the data into five indexes for each city — job market, value, quality of life, desirability, and net migration — to definitively rank these major metro areas.

Scores for "value," a blend of annual household income and cost of living, and "quality of life," which accounts for crime, college readiness, commute, and other factors, are included below on a 10-point scale, as well as the city’s population and median annual salary.

4. Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina

Population: 1,714,629
Median annual salary: $47,430
Quality of life: 7.4
Overall value: 6.9

Raleigh-Durham and Chapel Hill are collectively known as the Triangle, an area anchored by its foundation in research and tech. The Triangle employs nearly 40,000 residents at companies like IBM, SAS Institute Inc., and Cisco Systems as well as surrounding colleges Duke, North Carolina State, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A strong job market coupled with a burgeoning microbrewery and dining scene draws 80 new residents every day, said a local expert.

Best States for Business: North Carolina is High on the LIst

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 10, 2017

Abberly Place, Garner, NCWe score all 50 states on more than 60 measures of competitiveness, developed with input from a broad and diverse array of business and policy experts, official government sources, the CNBC Global CFO Council and the states themselves. States receive points based on their rankings in each metric. Then we separate those metrics into 10 broad categories, weighted based on how frequently each is used as a selling point in state economic development marketing materials. That way, our study ranks the states based on the criteria they use to sell themselves.

Our study is not an opinion survey. We rely on tangible numbers to gauge each state's performance, scoring all 50 states on more than 60 measures of competitiveness, using publicly available data.

Here are our categories and this year's weightings.

Workforce - We rate states based on the education level of their workforce, the numbers of available employees, and the states' demonstrated abilities to retain college-educated workers. We measure workforce productivity based on each state's economic output per job. We look at the relative success of each state's worker training programs in placing their participants in jobs. We also consider union membership and the states' right-to-work laws.

Cost of Doing Business - We look at the competitiveness of each state's tax climate, as well as state-sponsored incentives that can lower the cost of doing business. Utility costs can add up to a huge expense for business, and they vary widely by state. We also consider the cost of wages, as well as rental costs for office and industrial space.

Infrastructure - We measure the vitality of each state's transportation system by the value of goods shipped by air, waterways, roads and rail. We look at the availability of air travel in each state, the quality of the roads and bridges, and the time it takes to commute to work.

Economy - We look at economic growth, job creation, consumer spending, and the health of the residential real estate market. We measure each state's fiscal health by looking at its credit ratings and outlook, as well as its overall budget picture. We also consider the number of major corporations headquartered in each state.

Quality of Life - We score the states on livability, including several factors, such as the crime rate; inclusiveness, such as antidiscrimination protections; the quality of health care; the level of health insurance coverage and the overall health of the population. We evaluate local attractions, parks and recreation, as well as environmental quality.

Technology & Innovation - We evaluate the states on their support for innovation, the number of patents issued to their residents and the record of high-tech business formation. We also consider federal health, science and agricultural research grants to the states.

Education - Higher-education institutions offer companies a source to recruit new talent, as well as a partner in research and development. We consider the number of higher-education institutions in each state, as well as long-term funding trends for higher education. We look at several measures of K–12 education, including test scores, class size and spending. We also look digital and lifelong learning opportunities in each state.

Business Friendliness - But we grade the states on the freedom their legal and regulatory frameworks provide for business.

Cost of Living- The cost of living helps drive the cost of doing business. From housing to food and energy, wages go further when the cost of living is low.

Access to Capital - We look at venture capital investments by state, as well as small-business lending on a relative basis.

North Carolina is #5 on the list of America's Top States for Business.

Tips for Renting Apartments in Garner, NC

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 03, 2017

Abberly Place, Garner, NCThe checklist for in an apartment isn’t limited to things like how much the rent is and the close the apartment or house is to work. In order to ensure a safe and comfortable living arrangement, all other aspects have to be considered before signing a lease.

No matter where you decide to live, it’s best to consider what’s close to the property and what transportation is available. If there are restaurants or shopping centers within walking distance, or relatively close by, it’ll be easier for you to buy what you need. However, it’s important to also consider forms of public transportation.

As far as the actual property goes, it’s critical to pay attention to the actual building and the lease. Always visit the apartment in person as opposed to simply viewing pictures and reading descriptions; this allows you to see if the place is in good enough condition to live in, and make sure you feel safe. It’s dangerous to decide on a place without knowing if you are fully comfortable with the apartment, landlord, and neighborhood. As far as the lease, read through it thoroughly and carefully. If you have any questions at all, or don’t understand something, it’s critical to ask questions to avoid being locked into a bad situation. As a safety net, it’s also a good idea to get everything in writing, from a hard-copy of the lease to paper copies of any repair requests, in order to avoid possible disputes.

In terms of roommates, it goes without saying that you should choose roommates that will be able to pay their fair share of rent; and that there is no conflict between roommates. This makes the off-campus experience better. Something that should also be thought about is the possibility of getting renter’s insurance, if it isn’t already required; this also functions as a safety net in order to make sure you are covered in case of fire, theft, or any sort of damage.
