Raleigh Home Trends

A capital city and a technological powerhouse, Raleigh is one of North Carolina’s crowning jewels. Part of the Raleigh-Durham metroplex, Raleigh blends modern conveniences, an exciting downtown area, and fast-growing suburbs. Part of the Research Triangle, a section of the Piedmont region of North Carolina that’s centered on North Carolina State University, Duke University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Raleigh has a thriving local tech industry that influences its competitive real estate market. A median home sale price of $376,000 is the result of a steady climb in recent years, but with over 30 neighborhoods inside the Interstate 440 Beltline alone, finding your ideal Raleigh home should be straightforward.

Raleigh Attractions

Head to Downtown Raleigh to explore exciting neighborhoods like the Warehouse District, a center of farm-to-table restaurants and buzzing brunch spots. Find residents at local watering holes like Clouds Brewing and one of the many trendy cocktail and wine bars. The area around the North Carolina State Capitol is imminently walkable and contains expansive thrift stores and antique markets. Moore Square is one of the more popular parks in the city and one of two parks that were part of the city’s original planning. Just seven miles west of downtown sits Carter-Finley Stadium, the home of NC State’s football team, so sports lovers won’t have to go far from home to see their favorite – or least favorite – teams play. In the northern reaches of the city off Highway 70 sits Crabtree Valley Mall, a sprawling indoor retail center with an incredible array of shops to explore.

Raleigh Schools

Raleigh was once ranked as the third most educated city in the U.S. due to its large concentration of top-ranking universities. Public schools in Raleigh are managed by the Wake County Public School System, the most extensive public school system in the Carolinas. The district contains 194 schools which oversee 163,000 students and nearly 11,000 teachers. The presence of NC State, Duke University, and the Chapel Hill campus of UNC make Raleigh a competitive city for both undergraduate and graduate programs. But the large student contingency has a significant cultural influence over the city and brings in millions in revenue for both the universities and the city itself.

Commuting in Raleigh

Raleigh’s average commute time is on par with the U.S. average, just around 23 minutes. Fortunately, Raleigh residents don’t have as long a commute as those in Charlotte, but suburban developments have contributed to a yearly increase in average commute time. Highway 401 passes right through the downtown area, while Interstate 440 forms the Beltline, the city’s inner ring. There is public transit in the form of bus service, and the heart of the city has a relatively comprehensive bike infrastructure in place. However, if you live in the suburbs, you’ll need a car for daily errands. Raleigh-Durham International Airport sits 14 miles northwest of the city and is accessible via public transit.
