How Living in Durham Pays Off

Nowadays it seems that Durham is receiving positive, national, recognition on a regular basis, which is wonderful.  Here are just a few examples from the past few weeks:

CNNMoney.com just named their 25 Best Places to Retire and Durham, NC is #1 in the country!

The Wall Street Journal cited Durham, NC as the #1 best city for real estate investment in the country.

The Only Burger truck is one of the top 3 contenders for winning the Best Food Truck in America, a contest hosted by the Food Network. Winner to be announced during the Great Food Truck Race Finale on September 19th.

Through word of mouth, and because of the national recognition, more and more people are moving here not necessarily due to a job but due to a lifestyle.  In essence, they are choosing Durham and then they are finding a job here in order to make the move happen.

In the past 6 months I have had clients that have or will be moving here from San Francisco, Philadelphia, and New York City specifically to live here because of what Durham offers and not because of a job.  How wonderful is that?!  Not only will this make it an even more vibrant city but the people moving here have the same vision for Durham as all of us Durhamites.

What does this mean for you?  (1) Increase in home values throughout the years, (2) Increase in amount of money that is spent locally, (3) Increase in the allure for companies to move to the area and create more jobs.
