What is the Cost of Living in Raleigh, NC?

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, July 26, 2018

Abberly Place apartments in Garner, NCIf you are looking for a great city in which to work and live, you may want to consider Raleigh. The Cost of Living in Raleigh is equal to the national average, which, in comparison to most major cities, is very reasonable. Expenses such as housing, transportation and utilities are all below the national average. As gas prices continue to rise, many people are concerned about the cost of transportation. In Raleigh, the Average Commute Time is 25 minutes. The city is currently working to improve their public transportation in an effort to reduce traffic congestion and encourage the use of bicycles. The implementation of a new transportation plan could make it easier to get to work and further reduce transportation costs, helping to maintain the reasonable cost of living that Raleigh is known for.

Salaries in Raleigh

In some cities, a low cost of living can result in lower salaries. In Raleigh, this does not appear to be the case for people working in information technology. Researching Median Salaries in Raleigh shows that software engineers have a competitive median salary.

Raleigh: One of America’s Best Cities to Live

Joseph Coupal - Friday, July 06, 2018

Abberly Place apartments in Garner, NCAs 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.

High Earners are Moving Toward Renting

Joseph Coupal - Friday, June 22, 2018

Abberly Place apartments in Garner, NCThe Fastest Growing Group of Renters: It May Surprise You

You think you have the average American renter all figured out—that they're a group of young, unsettled, commitment phobic folks, just starting out and scraping by? It’s time to widen that picture a bit. In fact, the fastest-growing group of new renters includes those aged 50 or older, or younger folks raking in six-figure salaries.

This is a tale of the haves—who could afford to buy a home, but choose not to—and the have-nots, who don't make enough money to become homeowners. And although overall rental prices are starting to level off, and in some cases even dip a little, there still aren't nearly enough affordable rentals to meet the overwhelming demand from lower-income renters.

The new renter: Older and wealthier than you'd expect

Overall, renters had a median age of 40 in 2016—up from 38 in 2016. (In comparison, homeowners are a median 56.) That's because more baby boomers, whose kids have flown the coop, are downsizing out of their large, suburban homes and opting for maintenance-free rentals instead. No more mowing the lawn and shoveling snow for them! That's pushing up the median age of all renters.

More folks earning some serious dough are also choosing to rent rather than buy. About 13.3% of renter households made more than $100,000 in 2016. That's up from 9% in 2006.

That's partly because some high earners are saddled with high student debt loads, making it difficult to cobble together a down payment. In addition, more-walkable cities, many of which have undergone attractive revitalizations, have also become desirable places to live. So those with means are willing to lease a unit in a newly constructed community with luxe amenities.

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

Joseph Coupal - Friday, June 15, 2018

Abberly Place apartments in Garner, NCState 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.

How Much More Does it Cost to Own vs. Rent a Home in North Carolina?

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, June 07, 2018

Abberly Place apartments in Garner, NCOwning 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, according to a new NerdWallet analysis.

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, it's cheaper to rent on a month-to-month basis, the analysis found. If you're wondering how to save money for a down payment, renting can help you build that nest egg — but 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, but is lower for FHA or VA loans.

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 to rent each month.

The smallest difference is still a third more to own. The state where the premium to own a home is lowest is Florida, where it costs a median of 33% more to own than to rent. The states with the next lowest premiums are Colorado (40%) and Arizona (41%).

In some states, the cost of owning far eclipses renting. In New Jersey, the state with the highest homeownership premium, the median monthly cost of owning is nearly double that of renting (93%). The next most expensive places to own are Rhode Island, where the median homeownership cost is 84% higher than renting, and Connecticut, where owners pay a median of 82% more than renters each month for housing.

Here's how much more it costs to own vs. rent each month in North Carolina - 49%.
