Raleigh Housing Market
Raleigh’s housing market is taking over news headlines and is still a hot topic of conversation...let’s look at the stats!
RalToday’s newsletter shared some stats about the market that are hard to ignore. Zillow ranked Raleigh No. 2 in the country for homes with the fewest days officially listed on the market.
In WalletHub’s list of 2021’s Best & Worst Cities for First-Time Home Buyers, Raleigh ranked on the “best” side as No. 16 overall + No. 3 in the large city category.

In the same WalletHub study, Cary also ranked No. 3 overall for lowest property-crime rate.
Let's not forget that Bankrate ranked Raleigh, NC as #1 best places to live for 2021! This ranking is based on affordability, education, the job market, safety and wellness.
