Moving Out of the Northeast? Come to North Carolina!

Moving out of NJ, CT, MA, NY? Come to North Carolina!

2021 seems to be the year that people in the NE are ready to make their moves to a new state. Top reasons many are moving out of the northeast:

* High cost of living
* Too much cold/snow
* Limited job opportunities
* High cost of housing
* High taxes

So, moving to NC solves all of those issues!

Cost of living is reasonable – You can afford to drive, live, work and enjoy entertainment options.

Weather – We have all 4 seasons, but get little snow or ice each winter.

Job opportunities
 – Many employers are expanding into our area, we have a diverse job market and are a great area for new businesses.

Housing cost – In 2021, you will pay more than your friend or co-worker did for a house in NC a couple of years ago but you still get a lot of house for your money. The median price of residential property in the Triangle area, which includes Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and surrounding suburbs, is $380,000. You can buy a townhome for under $175,000 and for $700,000+ you can buy a beautiful home.

Taxes in NC – We have a 7% state income tax but we do not have a school tax. Property tax on a $400,000 home ranges from $3,500-5,500 per year. 

My family moved from Massachusetts to NC in the 1980s and found NC the best choice. It is easy to travel for a vacation or to visit relatives. NC has a large number of colleges and universities – the state schools are still very affordable and have a good track record producing jobs for graduates. The Triangle area in particular is perfectly positioned geographically – 2 hours to the beach, 3 hours to the mountains, 5 hours to DC or Atlanta.
