Your Guide to Moving to Raleigh, North Carolina

Raleigh, North Carolina is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. The high quality of life, excellent public-school system, growing business community, and low cost of living has made Raleigh a “go-to” destination for newcomers from around the world. Coupled with leading research universities like the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke University, and North Carolina State University, it is no wonder that Raleigh has become a destination for research and development, technological innovation, life sciences, and advanced manufacturing companies. If you are planning your move to Raleigh, HHHunt Homes has got you covered with some useful tips that will make the transition easier.

Plan a Visit

Raleigh is a unique collection of neighborhoods and townships which make it a really special place to live, work, and play. It is important to get the lay of the land before you move because each community offers different amenities and conveniences. For example, the Town of Cary offers a special blend of urban flair with over 30 parks, 80-miles of greenways, and dozens of recreational facilities. Finding the right neighborhood or township will take some time but it’s well worth it! While you are at it, visit our Reserve at Wackena community in West Cary. This beautiful neighborhood offers a selection of luxury single family homes with options such as first floor owner’s suites, game rooms, first floor guest suites, lofts, and screen porches.

Research Schools

Raleigh is home to some of the best public schools in the United States. With 49 magnet schools, a student to teacher ratio of 15:1, and half of the district’s seniors participating in advanced placement classes, Wake County schools beat all of the national averages by a significant margin. The best part is that the County continues making significant investments in K-12 education with over a $1 billion in new construction, renovations, and technology which will provide your children with a great advantage. Many of our new home communities, like Granite Falls  and Granite Falls Estates are conveniently located within minutes to the Wake County Public School System in Rolesville. The communities feature generous wooded homesites and family-friendly amenities such as membership at the Granite Falls Swim and Athletic Club and access to Greenway Trails system.

Settle In

There is so much to do in Raleigh! From restaurants and entertainment to professional athletics, there really is something for everyone at every stage of their life. Culture lovers can check out the many museums in the city including the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, North Carolina Museum of Art, or the North Carolina Museum of History. If you love food, be sure to check out Morgan Street Food Hall or Transfer Co. Food Hall for some of the best dining that North Carolina has to offer. Looking for something a bit more adventurous? The Raleigh Beer Trail offers a trip through Wake County visiting 25+ breweries. In fact, one of the stops on the Beer Trail is near our Townes at North Salem community in the Town of Apex – one of the most sought after communities in Wake County.
