The housing market in Raleigh is very active as more and more people move into the Triangle area. Within the city, you can find homes or condos for under $100,000, but most homes sell for significantly more than that amount. Still, housing is affordable, and there are a wide variety of styles available.

With a good tax base, the city's infrastructure is well maintained. Raleigh and its suburbs also offer excellent schools, a safe environment, great employment, numerous recreational opportunities, and great neighborhoods. Since so many people relocate to the area every year, Raleigh realtors have become experts in putting together information packages covering the complex process of buying a home when you are unfamiliar with the community to which you are moving.
